Fuliuwing the practice adopted in Vulmnes XV and XVI, the 
book now issued consists of a number of registers from adjacent 
parishes grouped together for convenience of reference. These 
three volumes include fifteen registers, and with those of Robert 
Hall and Hornby given in Volume IV, cover practically the whole 
of the northern part of Lancashire down to the River Ribble, the 
only exceptions being Goosnargh, Feniyhalgh, and Alston Lane, 
which will probably be included in the next volume of Lancashire 
registers along with Preston. 

It is very unfortunate that the old mission of Ulverston, which 
represented all Lonsdale north of the sands, cannot produce any 
register older than the one now printed. Fr Thomas Daniel alias 
West, S.J., who was a well-known historian and genealogist, was in 
charge of this mission from 1767 to 1779, and it seems hardly credible 
that he did not keep a register ; but although every effort has been 
made to find one in various likely places, the search has so far proved 

A similar attempt at Thumham was more fortunate, and resulted 
in the finding of a burial register not previously known to be in 

As the archdiocese of Liverpool contains some sixty old registers, 
aU of which are now transcribed, whilst the diocese of Salford may 
yield about twenty more, some of which are also ready, and the total 
number printed is only twenty-one, it wiU be seen that there still 
remains much to be done for Lancashire alone. 

Subscribers in the County Palatine, however, cannot expect 
to have any more work done at the expense of the Society for some 
time ; but as it is extremely desirable that these records sliould be 
preserved ere it is too late, it is to be hoped that wlien the present 
war is over, some effort may be made locally to collect funds for this

It seems only right to add that the cost of printing to the Society 
has been appreciably lightened by the payment by Mr W. B. S. 
Smith of £55, being £50 promised bv his lather, llie late Mr William 
Smith, and an addition of his own.

Ulverston is a parish in the hundred of Lonsdale, north of the Sands, 
Union of Ulverston, county palatine of Lancashire, i6 mUes north-west 
by west of Lancaster. It is one of the manors within the Liberty of 
Fumess, which on the erection of the abbey in 1127 was presented by 
Stephen, Earl of Boulogne, afterwards King of England, to the Cistercian 
monks as a part of the endowment of that foundation. WTien the first 
public Catholic chapel since the Reformation was erected in Ulverston 
about the opening of the nineteenth century, it was dedicated to the 
patroness of Fumess, St. Mar^'-, and the foundation-stone was brought 
from the abbey. Previous to this time the Faith in this district had been 
preserved through the ministration of priests sheltered in the houses of 
local gentry, briefl}' indicated by the following notices : 

Kirkhy Hall, 
in the parish of Kirkby Ireleth, four and a half miles south-west of 
Ulverston, was the seat of the ancient Catholic family of Kirkby till 
it was seized early in the eighteenth century by the mortgagees of Col. 
Roger Kirkby, who had apostatised about the time of the Oates Plot. 
The mansion was a low strong structure of dark red stone, in the Tudor 
style, and an upper room served as a chapel, the walls being covered with 
ancient frescoes and black-letter inscriptions still existing. A small 
sacristy adjoined, and an opening in the comer of the chapel now leads 
to what has been supposed to be a secret hiding-place, though it looks 
as if it had been used as a confessional {C.R.S., vi, 339-40 .' Lord 
Burghley's Map of Lancashire, 1590, p. 2). There is no record preserved 
of the names of the priests who served this interesting pre-Reformation 
chapel, which is now only accessible through a hole in the ceiling of the 
passage below. On a cubical stone, probably part of a sundial, lying 
in front of the hall, long since converted into a farmstead, are the arms 
of the Kirkbys and Lowthers, the other t^vo sides being inscribed with 
the initials of Roger Kirkby and his wife Anne, daughter of Sir John 
Lowther, of Lo-wther Castle, with the date 1639, and the initials of their 
four sons and eight daughters. 

Hampsfxeld Hall, 
a venerable mansion in East Broughton, parish of Cartmel, was for some 
generations after the reign of Elizabeth a seat of the staunch Catholic 
family of Thomburgh (or Thomborough), but when they ceased to reside 
there is not recorded. The manor eventually passed into Protestant 
hands, and is now a farmhouse {C.R.S., vi, 251-3). The Thomburghs, 
through the families of Musgrave, Fitzwilliam, Plantagenet, and De 
Warren, traced their descent from William the Conqueror (Burke, 
Extinct Baronetage, 1838, p. 425). 


Bigland Grange, 
in the same parish of Cartmel, was the seat of a junior branch of the 
Biglands, of Bigland Hall, in the township of Upper Holker, and was a 
missionary station till about the close of the seventeenth century 
{C.R.S.. vi, 253). 

Holker Hall, 

in Lower Holker, in the parish of Cartmel, facing Ulverston across the 
water, was a large irregular erection forming two sides of a quadrangle, 
and from Reformation times was the residence of the descendants of 
Christopher Preston, second son of Sir Thomas Preston, of Preston 
Patrick and Under Levens, co. Westmorland, and the Manor of Furness 
Abbey and Holker Park, co. Lancaster. The family remained staunch 
to the old Faith till the apostacy of Thomas Preston, of Holker Hall, 
wlio took that step with a view to acquiring the estates of his distant 
relative, Sir Thomas Preston, of the Manor of Furness, 3rd and last Bart., 
some time after that gentleman joined the Society of Jesus in 1674. 
In this expectation, after years of litigation, he was partially successful, 
being rewarded by the Government with a long lease of the whole estate. 
Sir Thomas survived this unjust forfeiture of his vast estates, and died a 
lay-brother at Watten in 1709 {C.R.S., vi, 236-8). Holker Hall, which 
passed to the ducal family of IDevonshire as related under Furness, is 
now the seat of Lord Richard Cavendish, brother to the present Duke. 
Though the secret chapel and priests' hiding-places can no longer be 
traced, it is understood that the old mansion is incorporated in the present 
noble structure. 

Ftirness Abbey, 

in the parish of Dalton, six miles south-west from Ulverston, after the 
dissolution in 1537 was retained by the Crown, but apparently leased to 
John Preston, of Preston and Under Levens, co. Westmorland, till in 
5 James I it was purchased — ^with Holker and other extensive estates — ^by 
his son Thomas, He took up his residence at the abbey in a manor- 
house — still existing as the Furness Abbey Hotel — which he constructed 
on the north side of the church, at a distance of about 320 feet, where the 
vale is narrowest, near the principal entrance of the great enclosure, and 
on the site of — and probably incorporating a portion of — the abbot's 
quarters (West, Antiquities of Furness, 1774, preface). Henceforth it 
became known as the Manor of Furness, and the Prestons, who were 
staunch recusants, continued to reside there till Sir Thomas Preston, 
3rd and last Bart., after the death of his second wife, the Hon. Mary 
Molyneux, daughter of Caryl, 3rd Viscount Molyneux, June 6, 1673, 
decided to renounce the world and embrace a religious life. He there- 
fore went over to Flanders, and entered the Society of Jesus at Watten, 
June 28, 1674, as a scholastic novice, under the alias of Saville, but having 
scruples regarding the priesthood owing to his having been twice married, 
never could be induced to take holy orders, and so remained a formed- 
scholastic till his death at Watten, May 27, 1709, aged 66 (Foley, Records 
S.J., vii, 631). The loss of his only son Francis in 1672 had no doubt 
greatly influenced him in this resolution. He settled his estates in 
Westmorland and Northamptonshire, as well as certain properties in 
Lancashire, including that of Park Hall in Quemmore, on his two infant 
daughters, Mary and Anne. The former subsequently married William, 
Lord Herbert, 2nd Marquis of Powis, and the latter became the wife of 
Hugh, 3rd Lord Clifford of Chudleigh.' 

During the Gates Plot it was asserted that Sir Thomas had become a 
Jesuit priest, and had settled Furness Abbey and manor upon the Society. 


His distant relative and namesake of Holker then apostatised, succeeded 
in circumventing the prior claims of the Prestons of Cockerham to the 
estates, and endeavoured by every means in his power to get the Crown 
to confiscate them as given to superstitious uses. After some years, and 
at enormous expense, he induced the Government to declare the for- 
feiture, whereupon lie brought influence at court to represent his services 
to the State, and obtained from the Crown, first a long lease, and ul- 
timately the possession of the whole estate. In 1690 he obtained a seat 
in Parliament for Lancaster, but died in London Jan. 31, 1696, leaving 
an only daughter and sole heiress, the wife of William Lowther, of Marske, 
CO. York, and thus the Prestons of Holker became extinct in the male 
line. Her husband was created a baronet in the following year, and his 
grandson. Sir Thomas Lowther, 3rd and last Bart., devised all the estates 
inherited from the Prestons to his cousin. Lord George Augustus Caven- 
dish, second son of the 3rd Duke of Devonshire, and he, dying unmarried 
in 1794, devised them to the Devonshire family, who now possess them. 

The story of the Furness estates having been settled on the Jesuits 
was quite untrue. Sir Thomas Preston made a private disposition of 
his estate, etc., and some moneys were ordered to be paid to certain 
individuals, more or less of a religious character, amounting to no very 
great sum. These are specified in the " Articles of Agreement " between 
the trustees. Lord Carrington, Caryl Lord Molyneux, Richard Walmesley, 
and Robert Dalton, dated Nov. 8, 1677, now in the archives of the Earl 
of Sefton at Croxteth. He had, indeed, also secured three small farms 
comprising about 60 acres for the foundation of a noviciate for the Eng- 
lish Province, but that being impracticable in England, the income was 
for many years devoted to the assistance of the Catholic missions in the 
Furness district. Two of these farms were in the parish of Dalton, and 
the other in the parish of Urswick. In 17 11 they were vested in trust 
for the Society in the name of Lady Catherine Stourton, the heiress of 
the Walmsleys of Dunkenhalgh, and in later years in the family of Petre. 
Out of the proceeds of the sale of this property at different periods, a 
sum of upwards of ;i(^i,500 was eventually expended upon the chapel and 
presbytery at Ulverston (Gibson, Lydiate Hall, pp. 46-7). 

Owing to the Manor's isolated position from the civil and ecclesias- 
tical authorities of the county, the Prestons did not suffer persecution 
on account of their Faith as severe as Catholics in other parts of Lan- 
cashire. John Preston, of Furness Abbey, appears in Lord Burghley's 
Map of Lancashire in 1590, but the significant cross is not attached to 
his name. In 1569 he had been high sheriff of the county, an ofl&ce 
which his son Thomas filled in 1585, and does not seem to have been 
highly regarded by the council in consequence of his lack of severity to- 
wards Catholics. The latter's son, Thomas, who died at the Manor in 
1604, married a daughter of that redoubtable Catholic, John Westby, 
of Mowbreck HaU, the brother-in-law of Vivian Haydock, " the fugi- 
tive," and the intimate friend and connection of Cardinal Allen (C.R.S., 
XV, 220) . His son, John Preston, appears in the recusant rolls from their 
commencement till his death. March 27, 1643. In the report of a spy 
to the Government respecting the great pilgrimage to Holjrwell on St. 
Winefrid's Day, 1629 {C.B.S. iii, 108 ; Foley, Records S.J.. iv, 534-5). 
it appears that among the assembly was Mr. John Preston, of the Manor, 
whom the spy says "hath two priests at his house, viz. Michill and 
Sefton." We also catch some few years earlier a glimpse of priests 
at the Manor in the MS. poem {apud me) by Fr. Laurence Anderton, S. J., 
alias " John Brereley, Priest," otherwise called " silver-mouthed Ander- 
ton," on the occasion of the marriage of Mr. Preston's daughter Agnes 


with Christopher Anderton, of Lostock Hall. It seems probable that 
Fr. Anderton passed some of his missionary career at the Manor before 
he went to Lytham Hall about 1625 {C.R.S., xvi, 421). There were 
iisnaJly two or more priests residing at the Manor, but the names of only 
a few — thoiiph fairly consecutive — can be discerned through the mists 
of those terrible days of persecution . Tlie following are those discovered : 

Rev. John Micliell, a native of Yorkshire, probably son of John 
Michell, of Crossley, Esq., passed M.A. at Oxford but being converted 
left the University and went to Douay College, where he was admitted 
Aug. II, 1576. He was ordained deacon at Cambrai April 6, priest 
Sept. 19, said his first Mass at Douay Oct. 18, 1577, and having accom- 
panied the collegians to Rheims in March, left there for the English 
mission Aug. 27, 1578 (Douay Diaries). He is mentioned in the report 
of a spy under date Jan. 20, 1593, as being in Lancashire (Dom. Eliz., 
xxxiii, n, 64). He was one of the assistants to the Archpriest, William 
Harrison, in 1619 {C.R.S., x, 175) ; and when Dr. William Bishop was 
consecrated to the see of Chalcedon and created Bishop of England and 
Scotland in 1623, Mr. Michell was elected one of the first sixteen arch- 
deacons of the Chapter erected by the Bishop (Old Chapter Records MSS.) . 
As previously related, he was one of Mr. John Preston's chaplains at 
the Manor in 1629, and probably died about that time. His confrere 
at the Manor was — 

Rev. John Sefton, who must have passed at college under another 
name, as he is not identified in the diaries, was apparently still at the 
Manor in 1631, at which date his name is found in the notes of addresses 
by Dr. John Southcote (C.R.S., i, 115). In 1654 he is met with exer- 
cising his duties at Stockenbridge Hall (C.R.S., xv, 50), after which he 
disappears from sight. 

Dom. John Dionysius Huddleston, O.S.B., bom April 15, 1608, at 
Farington Hall, in Leyland Hundred, co. Lancaster, being the second 
son of Joseph Huddleston, of that place and Hutton John, co. Cumber- 
land, Esq., by Eleanor, daughter of Cuthbert Sisson, of Kirkbarrow, co. 
Westmorland, Esq., is said to have been educated at Douay College, 
and ordained a secular priest, though his name does not appear in the 
published diaries. He is also said to have served as a volunteer in the 
royal service during the civil wars, but if he did so there can be little 
doubt that it was in the position of chaplain. From his Obituaries, 
edited by the present writer, C.R.S., i, 123-32, it is most probable that 
he resided at The Manor for some years between 1637 ^■^d 1645 as one 
of the chaplains to John Preston, who died in 1643, and his son and heir. 
Sir John Preston, created a baronet April r, 1644, who raised a regiment 
at his own ejcpense in defence of his sovereign, was fatally wounded whilst 
at its head in an engagement in Fumess, and died in 1645. At this 
period Mr. Huddleston had probably left Fumess, for he does not record 
Sir John's death in his Obituary. Subsequently — at what date is 
unknown — ^Mr. Huddleston joined the Benedictine Order, and was 
professed on the mission, was stationed at Somerset House, the palace 
of the queen-dowager, and reconciled Charles II to the Church on his 
deathbed, Feb. 5, 1685. His will is dated Jan. 30, 1693, and he died 
at Somerset House Sept. 22, 1698, aged 90. 

After leaving Fumess, Mr. Huddleston would appear to have served 
at Danby Hall or Grove House in Wensleydale {C.R.S., xiii, 233), 
and later was chaplain at Moseley House, co. Stafford, the seat of Thomas 
Whitgreave, Esq., where he undertook the education of a few youths 
of position, including Sir John Preston, 2nd Bart., who was there when 
Charles II took refuge in the chaplain's apartment and the adjoining 


hiding-place at Moseley alter the battle at Worcester, Sept, 3, 1051 
Sir John was stationed at one of the windows in the garrets of the house 
to give intelligence of the approach of troopers. Sir John died unmar- 
ried in April, 1 66 1, and was succeeded by his brother. Sir Thomas 
Preston, the last baronet (Gdlow, Biog. Diet., iii, 463-5). The next 
chaplain discovered at Fumess wa^ — 

Kev. Richard Fletcher alias Barton, a native of Lancashire, perhaps 
a grandson of Barton Fletcher, of Pilkington, in the parish of Prestwich, 
who was buried there May 7, 1627, and whose will was proved at Chester 
in the same year {Lanes. Par. Reg. Soc, xxxiv, 102 ; Lanes, and Cheshire 
Rec. Soc., iv). He arrived from England at Douay College July 26, 
1648, and was placed on the fund established by the late president, the 
Rev. George Fisher alias jMuskett. He took the oath of the profession 
of faith Aug. 3, and tliat of the alumni Dec. 27, 1648, received the ton- 
sure and minor orders at Douay May 13, 1649, and was appointed 
master of grammar at the opening of the scholastic year Oct. i, 1653 
{Douay Diaries, pp. 46, Si ; Douay Diaries, C.R.S., xi, 496-7, 501, 528). 
Shortly after this he must have come to the English mission, and is first 
met with, in February, 1675, as a member of the Lancashire and West- 
morland Clergy Comnaon Fund, as exhibited in a document referring 
to the Fund found at Stonyhurst by one of Gates' associates, Robert 
Bolron, who was sent down by the conspirators to concoct a " Popish 
Plot " at Stonyhurst in 1679, as printed in his " Papists Bloody Oath 
of Secrecy," London, 1680. 

" In 1678 he appears as one of Sir Thomas Preston's chaplains at The 
Manor, which at the time was occupied by the baronet's daughters 
or representatives after his departure for Watten in 1674. When Gates 
Wcis contri\'ing his Plot, it was determined that the leading Cathohcs 
of Lancashire should be included, and though this attempt failed in the 
case of the Sherburnes of Stonyhurst and others, it was powerfully 
backed by several influential gentlemen of the neighbourhood — ^Daniel 
Fleming of Rydal, Col. Kirkby of Kirkby, Mr. Dodding of Conishead, 
and others — working in the interest of Thomas Preston of Holker to 
obtain the Fumess estate on the plea of Sir Thomas Preston's reception 
into the Society of Jesus. In the Fleming of Rydal MSS. is a letter 
dated Gray's Inn, Oct. 29, 1678, from John Otway and Edward Rigby 
to Daniel Fleming of Rydal Hall, which states : " By Gates' information 
we find that one Barton, a Jesuit, is much concerned in the Plot. We 
hear that he is the person now at The Manor in Fumess, with some other 
priests. It is therefore desired that you wiU. forthwdth cause the said 
Barton to be taken into custody. It is not amiss if you apprehend the 
rest of the priests at The Manor " (Adam Wilkinson, Hist, oj Kendal MS., 
p. 139). Another letter referring to this matter amongst the State 
Papers {P.R.O., Doni. Charles II, n. 411, p. 45), from Daniel Fleming 
to Sir Joseph Wilhams, Secretary of State, dated Nov. 9, 167S, details 
his unsuccessful endeavours as a justice of the peace to apprehend " One 
Barton, a Jesuit, who hath of late dwelt at Sir Thomas Preston's house, 
called The Manor, in the north end of Lancashire." Barton and one 
Grimshaw had gone from there about a week before ; the said Justice 
Fleming seized all the arms there, disarming two servants of Mr. Wal- 
mesley's of Wigan, whom he found there — " Besides what Mr. Gates 
hath informed against JNIr. Barton, I doubt not Colonel Kirkby had 
acquainted you with what letters have fallen into my cousin Dodding's 
hands relating unto him, which shew him to be too guilty of this con- 
spiracy." Amongst the Fleming of Rydal MSS. is another letter from 
Sir Joseph Wdhams to Daniel Fleming, dated Nov. 16, 167S, which 

6 Registers of ui.verston 

says ; "I have been wanting to acquaint the King with your care and 
diligence in the search after the priests. It is a time that calls for tlie 
help of all good men." There arc other letters about the unsuccessful 
search for Mr. Barton till Dec. 11-15, 1678. In the following year, 
liowevcr, he was arrested, tried at Lancaster, and condemned to death 
for being a priest, but reprieved and pardoned (Dodd, Church History, iii, 
400). After his release from the Castle in 1684, having been supported 
during his incarceration in Lancaster from the Clergy Common Fund 
(Kirk, Diog. Collections MSS.), he returned to the mission in Lancashire, 
apparently in West Derby Hundred, and signed the Declaration of the 
clergj' of Lancashire, March 30, 1697, binding themselves at death to 
leave to the Church and pious uses such of their po.ssessions as they 
might have accumulated by ^'irtue of their ministry. Thus ISIr. Barton 
continued till 1701, wJien he was buried at Harkirk {Crosby Records, 
p. 81). 

Bro. Foley {Records S.J., v, 355 ; vii, 342), in his over-zeal for the 
Society, finding him called " Barton, a Jesuit," by Titus Oates, on the 
sole authority of that infamous informer who termed nearly all of his 
sacerdotal victims Jesuits, attributed his connection with Furness to a 
Jesuit named Thomas Hervey alias or vere Barton, although The Manor 
had ever been a secular chaplaincy. 

Rev. Nicholas Grimshaw, tlie other chaplain at The Manor, baptised 
Dec. 9, 1630 {L.P.R. Soc, ii, 91), was the second son of John Grimshaw, 
of Clayton Hall, co. Lancaster, Esq., by Anne, daughter and coheiress 
of Abraham Colthurst, of Burnley, Esq., a family now represented by 
that of Trappes-Lomax, of Clayton Hail. According to Dugdale's 
Visitation of Lancashire in March, 1664, Nicholas Grimshaw was " a 
student at Doway in Flanders," though he does not appear under his 
own name in the printed diaries of the college. When he became a 
chaplain to Sir Thomas Preston is unrecorded, but he was one of them 
at the time of the raid on The Manor in lu/S. Upon his flight he seems 
for a time to have sought refuge with his brother Richard at Clayton 
Hall, but the latter and his wife Elizabeth, daughter of Stephen Tempest, 
of Broughton Hall, co. York, Esq., were brought up, convicted of recu- 
sancy, and heavily fined in 1679, in which year it is probable that Nicholas 
Grimshaw was himself apprehended, and possibl}^ died in prison, as he 
totally disappears from sight. Previously, about 1674 or 1675, Mr. 
Grimshaw had a controversy with the Vicar of Mitton, the Rev. Samuel 
Felgate, which the latter published under the title of " The Novelty of 
the Modern Romish Religion set forth in an Answer to three Queries 
propounded by N. G., Priest," London, 16S2, treated at length by the 
writer in his Biog. Diet., iv, 324-6. 

This raid appears to have completely broken up the chaplaincy 
at The Manor, and it was never revived so far as is known. The estate 
was soon afterwards seized by the Crown, and IMass ceased to be said at 
Furness Abbey. 

Bardsea Hall, 
two miles south by south-east from Ulvcrston, in the adjoining parish 
of Urswick, belonged to the manorial lords of the name till the-last of 
the family, Nicholas Bardsea, was slain fighting in the royal cause in 
1642. Some account of this very ancient Catholic family appears in 
Lord Burghley's Map of Lancashire, 1590, published by the C.R.S. in 
1907, and in " The Manor of Bardsea, by Henry Ince Anderton," pp. 
216-61, Trans, of the Cumb. and Wesim. Antiq. and Arch. Soc., xii. New 
Series, 1912. 


Dorothy Bardsca, the heuesa oi tlie lamily, married Jaiiies Aiiderton, 
of Cla^-ton Hall, Cla5d:on-le-Woods, co. Lancaster, Esq., and thus 
Bardsea passed to that fajiiily, of which an account is given C.R.S., vi, 
233-5- JaJi^es Anderton died at Claji:on, Nov. 8, 1630, and his wife 
May 5, 1627. Tiieir son and heir, James, was aged over 55 in 1633 ; 
and his son and successor, Jaxnes, was living at Bardsea a recusant 
and suspected royahst in 1655, but died in London in 1676, intestate 
and insolvent, and was buried in the cloisters of Westminster Abbey 
on July II, leaving his widow Jane, who was residing a recusant at Bard- 
sea Hall in 1679. Thurstan Anderton succeeded his brother James to 
Bardsea, died in 16S3, and was buried with his ancestors at Leyland on 
Aug. 29. He was followed by another brother, Christopher, who was 
made a justice of the peace by James II in 16S7, and as " IVIr. Anderton 
of Bardsea " was buried at Urswick Dec. 14, 1694, the last male repre- 
sentative of the family, and ]^Iar3^ his unmarried sister, inherited Bardsea. 
Another sister, Dorothy, bom 161 5, married Thomas Singleton, of 
Stayning Hall, Esq., and their three daughters became coheiresses to 
the Singletons and Andertons. The eldest, Anne Singleton, residing at 
various periods at Bardsea, Great Singleton, and Crank Hall in Rainf ord, 
died unmarried in 1719. The second, Mary Singleton, married John 
Mayfield, of Lytham, gent., and inherited Stajming Hall ; and tlie third 
sister, Dorothy Singleton, married Alexander Butler, Esq., a younger 
son of the Rawcliffe Hall family, and inherited TodderstafEe Hall. 
jMts. Singleton in her widowhood resided with her sister Mary at Bardsea 
Hall, and died there about 1696-7, and about 1701 the elder sister, 
Mary Anderton, sold Bardsea Hall to Lord Molyneux, and retired to 
Aldcliffe, where she died Feb. 22, 1708-9, and was buried at Lancaster. 

Lord JNIolyneux used Bardsea Hall as a hunting-lodge, and Mass 
continued to be said in the old domestic chapel. Squire Tyldesley 
(GiUow, Tyldesley Diary, 1873, p. 37), under date July 6, 1712, says he 
heard " y" y " old doct' was buryed Fry-day beffor, at Bardsey," marking 
in the margin a cross-patriarchal, apparently to denote the sacerdotal 
character of the " Old Doctor," possibly a chaplain at the Hail. Later, 
May 23, 17 13, the diarist records : " About 12 sett fiorwards fior 
Bardsey [from Lancaster] to vissitt my Lord Molineux afiter y^ death 
of his Lady ; p^ John Carf [the guide over the sands] 6^, and the other 
gide 6^ ; rought Bardsey about 4, where ffound my L<i, his 3 sons, 
Massey, William Mohneux, and y^ bony Esq., all glade to see mee." 
Tyldesley remained at the Hall for five days, when he left to return to 
Lancaster, " about 5 post prandium." The Lady Molyneux, wife of 
William, 4th Viscount Molyneux, was Bridget, daughter and heiress 
of Robert Lucy, of Charlecot, co. Warwick, Esq., and died April 23, 1713, 
aged 57. The Viscount died March 8, 17 17-8, aged 61. One of the 
chaplains at Croxteth Hall usually accompanied Lord iMolyneux on 
his visits to Bardsea, and one of them, Fr. Thomas Vv^orthington, O.P., 
notes serving at Bardsea Hall on Aug. 25, 1717 {C.R.S., xiii, 226). In 
1732 Bardsea Hall was sold by the Molyneux family to Christopher 
Wilson, of London, and successively descended to the Braddyls and 
Gales, thus passing into Protestant hands after being a shelter for an 
altar and priest from the overthrow of the old religion. 

Bardsea Hall stands on the west side of the road from Ulverston, 
in a well-sheltered situation, and surrounded by a spacious and nicely 
wooded park commanding extensive views over Morecambe Bay. It 
still presents features of considerable interest, parts of the structure 
dating from the early part of the eighteenth century, and incorporating 
some of a yet more ancient building. It was much altered and enlarged 


by the Gales. Exteiibive gardens behind the house are laid out in ter- 
races rising one above another on the sloping side of the rock. 

The only name of a chaplain found residing in the Hall during the 
time of the Andertons is — 

Fr. Clement Smith, S.J., a native of Warwickshire, born in 1657, 
who studied at St. Omer's College, entered the Society at Watten, Sept. 7, 
1678, in due course received holy orders, and came to the mission in 
Lancashire. Dr. Oliver {Collectanea S.J.) suspects that the Furncss 
district was the seat of his labours. At the time of the Orange Revolu- 
tion in December, 1688, he appears to have been at Bardsea Hall, 
and the Annual Letters for that year give a graphic narrative of his 
troubles. The mansion was beset by a No-Popery mob of nearly three 
hundred men, and it was almost by a miracle that the good Father 
escaped. He spent weeks in hiduig from his pursuers, and for three 
months he was compelled to lie so closely concealed that he was unable 
even to pace about his chamber. For a wliole year he dare not use 
either fire or candle lest he should be betrayed by the light. Indeed, 
for two years he was unable to leave the house where he was harboured 
save at night. Such sufferings, combined with constant mental anxietj-, 
naturally undermined his constitution, and he died at Bardsea Hall, 
Sept. 8, and was buried from thence at Urswick Sept. 16, 1695, ^^'^ 3^ 
(Foley, Records S.J., v, 356-7 ; Lanes. Par. Reg. Soc, vol. xxxix). 

Rampside Hall, 
in the township of Yarleside, parish of Dalton, five miles south from 
Dalton, was the seat of the ancient family of Knipe, %vho appear in the 
recusant rolls from their commencement in the reign of Elizabetli. 
John Knipe, of Rampside Hall, was a captain in the royal army during 
the civil wars, and was slain at the battle of Brindle Heath Aug. 23, 
1651. The will of his sou and heir, James, was proved in 1694. The 
haJl was a refuge for missionary priests, as likewise — 

in the township of Hawcoat, formerly in the same parish, but now part 
of the borough of Barrow, the seat of the Lacy family in the latter half 
of the seventeenth century {C.R.S., vi, 238). 

the parish in which is situated the Abbey, the castle of the Peel of 
Fouldrey, and the ancient Tower of Dalton, became the seat of a Jesuit 
mission through the munificence of Sir Thomas Preston some years after 
the chaplaincy at The Manor was broken up. As related under Furness 
Abbey, Sir Thomas settled upon the Society three small farms, two of 
them in Dalton, ahd the third in the parish of Urswick. Out of the 
rents of this property the Province S.J. allowed a sum of ;^20 per annum 
towards the maintenance of a Father to serve the district. The first 
on record was apparently Fr. Clement Smith, who died at Bardsea 
Hall in 1695, ^ already related. The next of whom we have any 
definite knowledge was — 

Fr. William Gardner alias Taylor, S.J., who was born in this part of 
Lancashire in 1651, entered the Society Sept. 7, 1673, was ordained priest 
April 5, 1681, and came to the mission in his native county, where he 
served, with a brief interval in 1696, till his death. In 1701 and again 
in 1704 he is found serving what was called The Manor Mission, with the 
salary previously stated (Foley, Records S.J., v, 320-1). On Oct. 2, 
1716, he was residing in the parish of Pennington, i £- miles west by soutli- 
wcst of Ulvcrston, and was convicted of recusancy at the Lancaster 


Sessions held on that date under the description oi " Tho. Tayier als. 
Garner " {P.R.O. Forfeited Estates. 62 p.). In the " Return of the High 
Constable for the North syde of the Sands in the Hundred of Loynsdale " 
in October, 1716 {ibid., L. 2), under the township of Leece, parish of 
Aldinghani, in Low Furness, he states : "An estate of Mr. Taylor, a 
suspected Romish Priest lying att Stone dikes in the s^ Townpp valued 
att ;^I2 p an. The personall estate of the s'' INIr. Taylor in the townpp 
of Pennington, where he resides, valued at ;^o8 . 00 . 00. An estate 
called Goldniire lying near Dalton in the s"* co. heretofore lett by one 
Geo. Kemp, steward or serv* to Sir Nicholas Sherbum for the sum of £6 
p an. & supposed to be to the use of the s^ Mr. Taylor. A pcell of ground 
now farmed by one Thos. Brigg of Holbeck at £i p an., the rent supposed 
to be to the use of the s^ Mr. Taylor." Again, amongst the same 
Forfeited Estates Papers, B. 62, is an information dated Nov. 20, 1716, 
refeiTcd to the Master of References, that Thomas Briggs and Thomas 
Browne of Dalton-in-Furness pay rent to Mary Richardson (for lands in 
Dalton) to one Taylor a priest. In 1717, according to an obviously 
incorrect official return there were only seven known Cathohcs in Dalton, 
Kirkby Ireleth, Rampside, Walney, Pennington, etc. When the severity 
of the persecution had subsided, Fr. Taylor settled in Dalton, where he 
resided till his death, April i, 1725, aged 74 (Foley, Records S.J., vii, 
287, 765). After his death, some time seems to have elapsed before the 
appointment of a permanent successor to the mission, and for a time it 
was served by an itinerant Benedictine, or Riding Priest, who attended 
to Kendal, Workington, and Furness districts. 

Dom WiUiam Bede Hutton, O.S.B., a native of Eldon, co. Durham, 
professed at Lambspring in 1713, and ordained priest in 1720, who came 
to the Benedictine North Province in 1731, was placed at Stella, near 
Newcastle, till 1735, when he was transferred to Kendal, and thence 
served the wide district mentioned above tiU 1747. He then removed to 
Hesleyside, co. Northumberland, where he died May 29, 1756. Possibly 
some of his successors at Kendal or Sizergh Castle continued the same 
service. Anyhow, the next priest on record was — 

Fr. Thomas Daniel alias West, S.J., the historian of Furness, born 
in Scotland in 1717, but according to Oliver, Collectanea S.J., p. 39, 
Jan. I, 1720, who made his early studies at the public schools in Edin- 
burgh, and became for a time a commercial traveller. At the age of 
thirty-one or more he went to St. Omer's College, entered the Society 
at Watten Sept. 7, 1751, and made his higher studies at Liege, where 
he was ordained priest. For a time he was chaplain at Swynnerton 
Hall, CO. Stafiord, the seat of the Fitzherberts, thence probably succeeded 
Fr. John Williams, S.J., to the mission at " The Star " in Holywell in 
1761, and finally came to Dalton in Furness, where he appears in the 
return made by the vicar of the parish to the Bishop of Chester in 1767, 
being credited with a congregation of 23. He resided at Tytup — or as 
Fr. West himself spelt it, Titeup — Hall, in the chapelry of Ireletli in the 
north-western end of Dalton. It is believed that this fine example of a 
moderately -sized gentleman's house of the period, replete with handsome 
wainscotting and other internal embellishments, was originally called 
Orgrave Hall. Here he compiled his elaborate and erudite work, en- 
titled : " The Antiquities of Furness, or an Account of the Royal Abbey 
of St. Majy," which he dedicated in 1774 to the Right Hon. Lord George 
Cavendish. This gentleman was the owner of Furness, and was in- 
timate with Fr. West. According to a memorandum at Hornby in 
Fr. West's hand, his lordship made him the offer of a crjrpt in the Abbey 
to be converted into a chapel for the use of the neighbouring Catholics, 


wlucii lor ccilain reasons the good Fatiicr was unable to accept (Gibson, 
Lydiate Hall, p. 47). A friend, Mr. James Collinson, of Lancaster, 
writing to Fr. West, under date Nov. 21, 1775, says : "I suppose you 
intend to winter at Titeup, which is but a bleak and cold situation, far 
from society, so that could you meet with convenient lodgings at Ul- 
\erston, which is at no great distance, and stay there two or three of 
these dark and gloomy montlis, it would in my opinion, be far more 
comfortable." Fr. West seems to have taken the advice, at any rate 
he had removed to Swarthmoor Hall, just outside the town, in 1776, 
and there Mass was said till 1777. He then rented or purchased what 
was known as the " First House " in Ulverston, that is the fourth existing 
house from the old chapel, and made it his residence. It seems probable 
that for some years he had taken pupils, otherwise he could not have 
required or maintained such capacious residences as Tytup Hall or First 

In 1778, Fr. West published his " Guide to the Lakes, Dedicated 
to tlie Lovers of Landscape Studies, and to all who have visited, or intend 
to visit, the Lakes of Cumberland, Westmoreland, and Lancashire," 
which passed through many editions. In 1779 his address was at ' ' Filers, 
near Ulverston." His end was close at hand, and during one of 
his occasional visits to Sizcrgh, co. Westmorland, the seat of the 
Sti-icklands, he died in the castle July 10, 1779, aged 62. He was interred 
according to his own request in the choir or chapel belonging to the 
Stricklands in Kendal parish church (GiUow, Biog. Diet., ii, 15-6 ; 
Foley, Records S.J. , v, 357, vii, 192 ; Mannex, Hist., Topogr. and Direc- 
tory of Westmorland, ana the Hundreds of Lonsdale and Amounderness 
in Lancashire, 1851, p. 416 ; West's MSS. at Hornby). 

From a letter of the Rev. John Chadwick, grand-vicar to BishoiJ 
William Walton, V.A.-N.D., at York, dated Jan. 17, 1780 (Ushaw 
Collections MSS., ii, 445), it appears that the vacancy at Ulverston had 
not been filled at that date. Fr. West's successor was — 

Fr. John Sale, S.J., born Oct. 20, 1722, second son of William Sale, 
of Hopcar, in Bedford, parish of Leigh, co. Lancaster, gent., by Jane, 
daughter of Edmund Tristram, of Ince Blundell,yeo. {C.R.S., vol. vi), who 
entered the Society at Watten Sept. 7, 1741, and after ordination came 
to the English mission. He served Holywell, co. Flint, for a time, 
Crosby Hall and Bedford Leigh, co. Lancaster, for some years, and finally 
came to Ulverston in or about 1780. Here he remained till his death, 
Oct. 23, 1 791, aged 69, administration to his effects being granted on 
the following Feb. 6. It is not improbable that he continued to receive 
pupils like Fr. West. He was succeeded — after an interval of some 
three years, during which Ulverston received temporary service — by a 
very eminent theologian — 

The Very Rev. Patrick Everard, D.D., late rector of the Irish College 
at Bordeaux, and V.G. to the archbishop of that see, who had escaped 
to England during the French Revolution. He was a member of the 
very ancient family of Everard of Fethard, co. Tipperary, and was 
born in 1753. He received his classical educatioia in tlie local grammar- 
school, and thence was sent to the Irish College at Salamanca in Spain, 
where he was ordained priest in 17S3, having talten his degree of S.T.D. 
He went to the Irisii College at Bordeaux, of which, soon afterwards, 
upon the resignation of Dr. Glynn, he was appointed rector, and so 
continued till the Revolution necessitated his flight. Previous to this, 
tlie Archbishop of Bordeaux had made him the sole administrator of 
his diocese. It is said in Dr. Evcrard's Memoir, by the Rev. Thomas B. 
Allan, that in passing through London in his flight he was introduced 


to Edmund Burke, who was so iascinated with his courtly uiauners and 
conversational powers, that he became his attached friend, and intro- 
duced him to the leading statesmen and principal Catliohcs of England. 
The superior of tlie " gentlemen of the ex-Society," whose numbers had 
considerably diminished since tlaeir suppression in 1773, handed over to 
liim as locum tenens the Ulverston mission. Here, in the large house 
known as the First House, secured by Fr. West, Dr. Everard estabhshed 
a school for the sons of the Cathohc aristocracy, such as tlie J\iost}^-ns of 
Talacre, Stapletons of Carlton, Chftons of Chiton and Lytiiam, Strick- 
lands of Sizergh, and many other weU-known northern famUies. 

The First House, now divided into two residences situated at the 
end of Fountain Street, was a commodious building with a large paved 
court-yard and extensive stabling accommodation, to which a later 
erection, now likewise divided into two houses, was probably added by 
Dr. Everard. It stood beneath the shade of a few ancient sycamores, 
somewhat to the front of the subsequent day-school premises bearing 
the inscription, " Catliohc School, a.d. 1S24." The doctor also pos- 
sessed two fine gardens near the school, as weU as some fields just outside 
the town called " Gill Banks," now public pleasure grounds. The annual 
pension paid by the pupils ranged from ;^200 to ;^400, and the young 
gentlemen, some twenty in number, kept their own horses and dogs. 
They followed the hounds, dined, danced, and went to card parties at 
the houses of the neighbouring county famihes, and were accompanied 
by the great doctor hunself on such occasions. 

After using for some time a room in the house as a chapel. Dr. 
Everard erected about 1806 a smaU one adjoining, dedicated to Our Lady 
of Fumess, later incorporated in a more pretentious building by his 
successor. Thus he continued until iSio, when the bishops of Ireland 
— ^probably tlirough the instrumentahty of his friend, Dr. Lingard — 
elected hun, on the feast of SS. Peter and Paul, president of Maynootli 
College. He was then in his fifty-eighth year, and, unfortunately, his 
health was greatly impaired, lience his term of residence at Maynooth 
never seems to have been continuous. Indeed, he is found recruiting 
his broken strength at Ulverston in the j-ear of his installation, and 
revisited it again and again, till finally he resigned the presidency, 
Jan. 25, 1813, and returned to his school at Ulverston. In the following 
year he was elected coadjutor to Dr. Bray, archbishop of Cashel, with 
the right of succession, Sept. 19. his brief to the archbishopric of INIitilene 
in partibus bemg dated Oct. 4, 1S14, and he was consecrated at Cork 
April 24, 1S15. Upon the death of Archbishop Bray in 1820, Dr. 
Everard became archbishop of Cashel and Emly in December of that 
year, but lie was not destined to wear the pallium for more than three 
months, for he died in March, 1821, aged 68 (Allan, Memoir; Brady, 
Episcop. Succession, ii, 30 ; GiUow, Biog. Diet., ii, 188 ; Foley, Records 
S.J., V, 353). He was succeeded at Ulverston by — 

Fr. Nicholas Sewall, S. J., born in Maryland, Dec. 9, 1745, who, after 
serving various Lancashire missions, came to Ulverston in 18 14, and 
continued nominal rector for some years, after he was elected rector of 
Stonyhurst College in September, 18 16, for his signature appears in the 
registers from Dec. 25, 1816, till June i, 1819 (Foley, Records S.J., vii, 
701). When he came he obtained the assistance of a secular priest to 
act as locum tenens in the rector's absence, and to conduct the school. 
This was the — 

Rev. Bartholomew McHugh, who haxi in the previous year come over 
from Ireland to Liverpool as assistant to the Rev. Thomas Penswick, 
subsequently bishop, at tlie new church of St. Nicholas, Copperas Hill. 


iu cuuscqueucc oi some difference witli Mr. Penswick, he took up the 
position at Ulverstou. When Fr. Sewell removed in 1816, Mr. McHugh 
returned to Liverpool, and opened a small academy in Richmond Row, 
Evcrton, but in 181S he transferred his school back to Ulverston, having 
made final arrangements witli the Jesuits. 

On June 27, 1822, he laid the foundation-stone — brought from 
Furness Abbey — of anew church, though the old chapel was incorporated. 
For the period it had some pretensions, tlic walls being crenellated, and 
tlae ceihng of the chapel being modelled after one remaining in the Abbey 
ruins. It was opened Sept. 9, 1S23. In the following year he erected the 
school at Tarnside behind the church, bearing a stone inscribed " Catholic 
School. A.D. 1S24," and in 1832 he added a tower to the church, which 
still stands, though the quaint-looking church with its embattled square 
tower is now used for the equally quaint purpose of an Oddfellows' Hall. 
In 1835 he removed his boarding school to Hammershead Villa, a hand- 
some residence in the Elizabethan style, which he had himself erected. 
In 184 1 he was elected a guardian, at the head of the poll. Shortly 
before his deatli he tendered his resignation of the mission, but almost 
immediately afterwards was suddenly taken ill, died at his residence 
at Ulverston the same evening, March 14, 1S44, aged 56, and was in- 
terred in the church he had completed (Gillow, Biog. Diet., iv, 384). 

During his term the names of the following priests appear in the 
registers as assisting in the mission — 

Dom Thomas Clement Rishton, O.S.B., of Workington, July 25, 1819. 

Rev. Henry Carter, late of Newhouse {C.R.S., xv, 320), and then 
living retired in Preston, July 18, 1822, to March 23, 1823, and as 
sponsor June 24, 1S23, and Jan. 24, 1824. 

Rev. Edward Doherty, Aug. 6-9, and Sept. 26, 1829. 

Fr. George Connell, S.J., S^pt. 6, 1840, and May 9, 1841, superior 
of the district (Foley, Records S.J., vii, 157). 

Fr. Maurice Mann, S.J., Sept. 8-17, 1843, from Stonyhurst (Foley, 
ibid., vii, 484). 

Fr. Joseph Postlethwaite, S.J., Dec. 14, 1843, who about this time 
had left the Society, but was re-admitted March i, 1845 (Foley, ihid,^ 
vii, 618). 

Fr. Thomas Clarke, S.J., of Stonyhurst, May 5, 1844 (Foley, ibid., 
vii. 134)- 

Upon Mr. McHugh's death, the Society sent a locum tenens in the 
person of — 

Rev. John George Morris, who after the break-up of the college at 
Liege during the Revolution rejoined the community at Stonyhurst 
June 22, 1795, was ordained, but remained a secular priest devoted to 
the service of the Society, and subject to its superiors. He left Stony- 
hurst in 1808 for Preston, thence was sent in 1826 to estabhsh a new 
mission at Wakefield, whence he came in 1844 to Ulverston. Retiring 
on account of advanced age and sickness, he died shortly afterwards at 
Birkenhead, Oct. 9, 1855 (Foley, Records S.J., vii, 526 ; Hatt, Stonyhurst 
Lists ; Catholic Dir., 1856). He was succeeded by — 

Fr, Alfred Weld, S.J., younger son of George Weld, of Leagram 
Hall, CO. Lancaster, Esq., J.P., D.L,, who served the mission from 
August to November, 1855. 

Fr. William Cobb, S.j., November, 1855, to Januaiy, 1856 (Foley, 
ibid., vii, 144). 

Fr. Richard Corr, S.J., Januarj- to August, 1S56 (Foley, ibid., 172). 

Fr. Bernard Jarrett, S.J., 185O, till the Society handed over the 
mission to the Bishop of Liverpool, who appointed — 


Rev. Peter Laverty, 1856 to 1877. At his coming Ulverston was 
the only mission in Lonsdale north of the Sands, a district of about 
244 square miles. The necessity of establishing new missions was 
apparent, especially at the rapidly -growing town of Barrow-in-Furness, 
where St. Mary's was commenced in 1865, St. Patrick's in 1877, and the 
Sacred Heart in 1902. Other missions in the district were founded at 
Coniston, the Sacred Heart, 1866, church opened 1872, and at Dalton- 
in-Furness, Our Lady of the Rosary, school chapel 1879. 

Rev. William Massey, 1877-86. He purchased the site for a new 
mission at Grange-over-Sands, two miles from Cartmel Priory, but the 
Rev. John Bilsborrow, subsequently Bishop of Salford, was appointed 
the first incumbent in 1882. For eighteen months Mass was said in 
Kent's Ford House, the residence of John Sutcliffe-Witham, Esq., and 
the new church, dedicated to St. Charles, was opened Jan. 22, 1884. 
Fr. Massey also secured a site for a new church, schools, and presbytery 
in Ulverston, and began to erect the schools, which were opened in 1887, 
but owing to ill-health he had to resign the charge of the mission in 
the previous year. 

Rev, Peter Laverty, having recovered his health, returned in 1886 
till 1887. 

Rev. Thomas B. Allan, January, 1887-1907. The foundation-stone 
of the new church was blessed by Dr. O'Reilly, the bishop of Liverpool 
on the Feast of the Assumption, 1893, and opened by Bishop Wliiteside 
Aug. 2, 1895. Fr. Allan wrote a brief account of his eminent predecessor 
at Ulverston — " Dr. Everard, Archbishop of Cashel and Emly. A 
Memoir. By the Rev. Thomas B, Allan. Reprinted from 'The Irish 
Ecclesiastical Record.' " Dublin, 1897, 8vo., pp. 22. 

Rev. Laurence Kehoe, 1907 to January 1915. He established a 
convent school under the care of the Sisters of the Sacred Heart of 
Mary, opened Sept. 8th, 1913. 

Rev, Patrick Delany, 1915 to date.

Yealand Conyers 
a township in the parish of Warton, hundred of South Lonsdale, union 
and co-palatine of Lancaster, eight miles from Lancaster, is men- 
tioned in Doomsday Book, and was bestowed by William the Conqueror 
upon Roger de Poictou, wl^o retained it in 1102, when he joined Prince 
Robert in rebellion against his father. Subsequently it passed from 
William de Lancaster, who died without issue in 1246, to Adam de 
Avranches, whose fortified manor-house was at Leighton, probably on 
the site of an early British castle, and situated off the beaten track in a 
somewhat isolated position. 

Through heiresses the manors of Leighton, Yealand Conj'ers, and 
Yealand Redmayne descended through the families of de Redmayne, 
de Crofte, Conyers, de Crofte again, and finally to a cadet of the Middle- 
tons, of Middleton Hall in the parish of Kirby Lonsdale, co. Westmor- 
land, who settled at Leighton Hall. These families were intermarried 
with leading families of the counties of Lancaster, Cheshire, Cumberland, 
Westmorland, and Yorkshire, as may be seen in ancient records and 
the pedigrees of the Middletons returned at the visitations of Lancashire 
in 1567, 1613, and 1664, prominent members greatly distinguishing 
themselves in the various national wars. 

Sir Robert Middleton, to whom Henry VII gave thanks by letters 
for service in Scotland, acquired the manor of Beetham in Westmorland 
with his wife, the heiress of Sir Edward Beetham. His grandson, Ger- 
vase, died in 1548, leaving very extensive possessions, inclusive of the 
manors of Warton and Parr, to his son George Middleton, of Leighton, 
a staunch recusant, who ^^•as twice married, 1°, to Anne, daughter of 
Sir ^larmaduke Tunstall, of Thurland Castle, co. Lancaster, by whom 
he had only two daughters, one of whom became the wife of George 
Beesley, of The Hill, in Goosnargh ; and 2°, to Margaret, daughter of 
Sir Christopher Medcalfe, of Nappa, co. York, by Elizabeth, daughter 
of Henry, Lord Clifford, first Earl of Cumberland, K.G. Margaret 
Middleton was a widow residing at Leighton Hall in 1585 (? 1588), 
when she was reported as harbouring a priest named Beesley. Her sons 
were likewise recusants, Thomas, George, and Robert. George, the 
second son, was slain at Mechlin in the Low Countries. The eldest son, 
Thomas, succeeded to Leighton, and both he and his wife, the sister of 
Sir Richard Hogliton, Knt. and Bart., were staunch recusants. Their 
eldest son. Sir George Middleton, Knt. and Bart., was a colonel in the 
royal army, for which and his recusancy he was forced by the Cromwel- 
lians to pay a sum of ;^855 and ;^6o per annum, sufferings which Lloyd, 


in his Memoirs, p. 696, computed at ;^2,646 in land and money. He was 
knighted by Charles I at Durliam, June 26, 1642, and created a baronet 
by letters patent the following da5^ After the Restoration of Charles 11, 
Sir George was twice elected liigh-sheriff of his county, in 1661 and 1662. 
He died at Leighton Feb. 27, 1672-3, aged 72, and was interred in the 
church at Warton on March 6th, with a marble monument to commemo- 
rate him. 

By his first wife Sir George Middleton had a son Geofirey, who died 
voimg and sine prole, and two daughters, Mary and Katherine. By his 
second wife he had another son, Thomas, who died in infancy. After 
the death of Katherine, her sister Man- became sole heiress to the Middle- 
ton estates, and married Somerford Oldfield, of Somerford, co. Chester, 
son and heir of Sir Philip Oldfield, of Somerford, by whom she had a son 
and three daughters. George Middleton Oldfield, the son, who married 
Lady Clark, took up his residence at Leighton immediately after the 
death of Lady Anne Middleton, the widow of Sir George, in 1705. 
Within twelve months his only son, Henry George Somerford Oldfield, 
was buried at Warton, Feb. 8, 1705-6, where his sister Elizabeth had 
preceded him March 24, 1703. George Middleton Oldfield died at Leigh- 
ton Jan. 25, 1708-9, and his two surviving daughters, Dorothy and 
Katherine, became his coheiresses. The elder, Dorothy, married Albert 
Hodgson, Esq., of the ancient Catholic family seated at Hebburn Hall, 
CO. Durham, and the younger, Katherine, married Thomas Fletcher, of 
Hutton Hall, co. Cumberland. By deed of partition, dated June 11, 
1711, between Dorothy and her husband Albert Hodgson, and Katherine 
and her husband Tliomas Fletcher, the Hodgsons took Leighton Hall 
and parks, with the manor, Yealand Hall, the demesne lands of Leighton 
and Yealand, the New or Red Deer Park, etc., and the Fletchers took 
the manors of Silverdale and Yealand, the demesne lands of Hyneing, 
Hyldersley Moss, and certain lands in Yealand and Warton, all which 
they sold soon afterwards. 

A few years later Albert Hodgson joined the Chevalier de St. George, 
and was taken prisoner at Preston in 1715. Though his life was spared, 
he was long detained in prison, and his estate was confiscated under 
attainder, including his life interest in Leighton, which remained in the 
hands of the commissioners, administered by Mr. Robert Pool, of 
Lancaster, steward, till Thursday, March 7th, 1722, when it was sold by 
public auction, and was purchased on behalf of Mr. Hodgson by a friend. 
Thomas Winckley, of Lincoln's Inn and Preston. Mr. Hodgson then 
returned to reside at Leighton Hall. 

Mr. Fletcher, frightened at the political aspect, apostatised, and turned 
informer against Catholic charitable trusts. It is said that it was he 
who gave Mr. Hodgson away in 1715. It was upon Thomas Fletcher, 
then of Mousby Hall, that Sir Henry Fletcher, Bart., of Hutton Hall, 
had settled his estate when he retired to the Franciscan convent at Douay 
in 1710. The apostate died without issue. 

The Hodgsons had only two daughters, the elder of whom, Mary, 
married in December, 1737, as his second wife, Ralph Standish, of Stand- 
ish Hall and Borwick Hall, co. Lancaster, whose first wife, the Lady 
Philippa Howard, daughter of Henry, 6th Duke of Norfolk, had died 
April 5, 1731 {vide C.R.S., vi, 241, and correct). The younger daughter, 
Anne, married Brj^an Hawarden, of Wigan, surgeon, younger son of 
John Hawarden, of Lower House, in Widnes, but died without issue. 
The elder daughter had no children by Mr. Standish, and after his death 
in 1756 married secondly, George Towneley, younger son of Charles 
Towneley, of Towneley Hall, co. Lancaster. 

34 KK.(;isrf,KS of y km. and 

About 1765, Mr. Towneley rebuilt the mansion at Leighton, incor- 
porating a portion of the ancient edifice. Tlie front of the house, 
facing south, was in the prevalent style of Parisian houses, familiar 
to the Towncleys, tlie principal entrance in the centre being approached 
by steps flanked by iron railings, witli two long windows on either 
side, and a lower storey at either end, all built of stone with staircases 
and many floors of the same material. In the windows of the gallen^, 
as well as in those of the hall and parlour, were the armorial bearings — 
(i) of the Middletons, quartering Beetham, Burton, and Crofte ; (2) per 
pale, IVIiddleton and Hoghton ; (3) Middleton and Metcalfe ; (4) Mid- 
dleton and Strickland ; (5) Middleton and Tunstall ; (6) Middleton 
and Preston, and the crest, an eagle's head erased. 

In 1782, the Towneleys vacated the hall, and erected a chapel 
adjoining a house in Yealand for the use of the chaplain. Whilst the 
chapel was building Mass was said in the attic of this house. These 
premises, with little alteration, exist to-day as the presbytery attached 
to the church erected in 1852 by tlie late squire, Richard Thomas Gillow, 
who died in 1905, aged almost 99. On the door leading from the old 
chapel to the house is the inscription — 


Upon George Towneley's death in 1786, aged 80, he devised the 
Leighton estate to his nephew, John Towneley, of Towneley Hall, 
who sold it to Alexander Worswick. of Ellel Grange, son of Thomas 
Worswick, of Lancaster, banker, and his wife Alice, daughter of Robert 
Gillow, of Lancaster. Thomas Worswick's father, Robert, married 
Elizabeth, daughter and heiress of Alexander Butler, younger son of 
Henry Butler, of Rawcliffe Hall, and thus obtained the Todderstaffe 
Hall estate. That estate had come with Alexander Butler's wife, 
Dorothy, daughter and eventual coheiress of Thomas Singleton, of 
Stayning Hall, and his wife Dorothy, daughter of James Anderton, of 
Clayton Hall and Bardsea Hall. Two other sons of Thomas Worswick 
were priests, John, formerly of Hornby, who died at Leighton Hall 
in 1809, and James, who died at Newcastle-on-Tyne in 1843. Alexander 
Worswick died at Leighton July 29, 1814, aged 49, and was succeeded 
by his son Thomas, a bachelor, from whom the estate passed by purchase 
to his cousin, Richard Gillow, son of Richard brother to Mi's. Worswick. 

Richard Gillow married Elizabeth, daughter and eventual heiress 
of Charles Stapleton, M.D., younger son of Nicholas Stapleton, of Carlton 
Hall, CO. York, heir to the barony of Beaumont, subsequently restored. 
Her brothers. Colonel Herman and Major Charles Stapleton, died un- 
married. Their mother was the daughter and heiress of Henry Fallow- 
field, of the ancient Westmorland family of that name, to one of whom 
Prince Charlie in 1715 presented relics of James II, still preserved at 
Leighton HaU. Richard Gillow died at Leighton Dec. 16, 1849, aged 76, 
where his wife had preceded him Nov. 18, 1848, aged 68. They haxi a 
large family, of whom three were priests, Robert, George and Charles, 
and several daughters nuns, Elizabeth, Catherine, and Margaret. 
The eldest son, Richard Thomas, succeeded to the Leighton estate, and, 
outliving all his twelve brothers and sisters, was long venerated as the 
*' Old Squire." He died as previously stated at the patriarchal age of 
99. By his marriage in 1845 with Mary Anne, daughter of Charles 
Eyston, of East Hendred, co. Berks, J.P. and D.L., and high-sheriff 
of that county in 1831, he had four sons, Richard "^Charles, born in 1846, 
Robert Joseph, George William, barrister-at-law, and IMgr. Francis 
John Gillow, and three daughters, Mary Tlicrcsa, wife of Henrj- INIatthias

and Swinburne), by Catherine, eldest daughter of Michael Henry Blount, 
of Maple Durham Hall, co. Oxford, and predeceasing his father left several 
children, of whom the eldest, Charles Richard, bom in 1870. succeeded 
his grandfather to Leighton Hail, and is the present squire. 

During the occupation of Leighton Hall by the Worswicks and Gillows 
great alterations were made to the front of the mansion in an endeavour 
to restore to it some of its ancient style. It wcis embattled and re faced 
with the polished limestone of the district, so white as to be almost 
dazzling in sunshine, and now presents an imposing appearance nestled 
amid rocks and woods. It is surrounded by an extensive park of 
great antiquit}-, Edward III, by charter, having granted free chase and 
warren within the manor. Former!)- there were two parks, containing 
red and fallow deer. 

The following imperfect record of the chaplaincy at Leighton is 
all that has been gleaned : — 

Rev Beesley. In a spy's list of priests and students at Douay 

and in Lancashire, dated " about 1585 " {P.R.O., Doni. Eliz., vol. clxxxv. 
No. 85), it is stated that one of the priests, " IVIr. Bisseley Remainethe 
fior the most part with M"* ^lidletonne, widowe, of Leightonne beyonnde 
Lanckester." It appears from the ancient MS. history of Leighton, 
in the possession of the present lord of the manor, Mr. C. R. Gillow, that 
one of the two daughters of George Middleton bj- his first wife, Anne 
Tunstall, married George Beesley, of The HiU in Beesley Tythe, Goos- 
nargh, co. Lancaster, the father of the Ven. George Beesley, the Martyr, 
and the Rev. Richard Beesley, born in 1570, who studied at Rheims and 
Rome, was ordained priest at Douay in 1595, and thence came to the 
English mission in 1602 (Knox, Douay Diaries ; Douay Diaries, C.R.S., 
X and xi ; Foley, Records S.J., vi). If the spy's information has been 
correctly calendared as " about 1585," Mr. Beesley the priest at Leighton 
could not have been either of those brothers, for the Ven. George Beesley, 
the elder of the two, was ordained in 1587, came to the mission in 
1588, and was martyred in Fleet Street July 2, 1591. It is possible, 
therefore, that the priest was the John Beesley mentioned in 1581 in 
the will of Alexander Hoghton, of Hoghton Tower and The Lea, to which 
his brother George Beesley was executor. Hoghton's niece Catherine 
became the wife of the widow Middleton's son Thomas, who succeeded 
to Leighton. 

Richard Beesley, the priest referred to above, probably succeeded 
either his uncle or brother to the chaplaincy at Leighton, and is noted by 
Dr. John Southcote as serving somewhere in Lancashire about 1631 
{C.R.S., i, 115). There were many priests of the family, including Fr. 
John Beesley alias Nelson, S. J., of the Yorkshire branch, and it is curious 
that the family connection mth Leighton continued for a long period, 
a John Beesley, probably the steward, dying there in 1661. The next 
priest on record at Leighton was — 

Rev. Peter Gooden, son of Peter Gooden (or Golden), of the Old Hall 
of Pendleton, near Manchester, gent., who was admitted into the Enghsh 
College at Lisbon in 1661, became an alumnus Aug. 6, 1666, and after 
being ordained priest left for the English mission Feb. 2, 1670. He 
appears as a member of the Lancashire and Westmorland Clergy Fund 
in 1672, and was probably stationed at Leighton at the time. The sturdy 
royalist Sir George Middleton died in 1673, and Mr. Gooden continued 

V>C. KKCrSTMRS Ol \ I-, \I.\M. 

chaplain to his widow. Wliilst he was in this position, Mr. Goodcn's 
brother. Eflmuiul Golden or Gooden, of Pendleton Old Hall, gent., 
married in NovLinber, 1679, Lady Middleton's grand-daughter, Anne, 
the elder Miss Oldfield. In the Grimshaw MSS. {apud me), is a curious 
case, with counsel's opinion thereon by Mr. T. Vernon, in tlic beginning 
of the eighteenth centurj\ According to tlic settlements. Lady Anne 
Middleton, the widow of Sir George, and her daughter, Mrs. Somcrford 
Oldfield, were seized of various manors and estates in Lancashire, West- 
morland, and Cheshire, for their lives with immediate remainder settled 
in tail on George IMiddleton Oldfield, remainder to Anne, his elder sister, 
as regards the Lancashire and Westmorland estates, and remainder 
of the Cheshire estates to his younger sister. Certain covenants were 
made on the marriage of Anne Oldfield and Edmund Golden, and in 
1680 the latter made a release of his interests in the Cheshire estates, 
but refused to do the like to the other estates. When the case was put 
before Mr. Vernon, both Mr. and I\Irs. Golden were dead, leaving issue 
a son and daughter then under age. Their uncle, George IMiddleton 
Oldfield, was anxious to bar the entail, having no provision made for 
himself during the lives of his mother and grandmother, who were both 
alive. He asserted that the Rev. Peter Gooden had influenced Lady 
Middleton and Mrs. Oldfield in the match between his sister and Mr. 
Edmund Golden, and that the latter had represented his income as 
;^70o, whereas it was only ;^200 per annum. 

Shortly after his nephew's marriage, during the Gates Plot persecu- 
tion, his name having been introduced into Bolron's pamphlet, " The 
Papists' Bloody Oath of Secrecy," 1680, Mr. Peter Gooden removed 
from Leighton Hall to Aldcliffe Hall, near Lancaster, the seat of the 
Misses Dalton, " the Seven Virgins who refused to change with the 
Times." There, in that historical mansion, Mr. Gooden "kept a sort 
of academy or Little Seminary for educating of youth who were after- 
wards sent to Popish Colleges abroad to be trained as priests " (Gillow, 
Biog. Diet., ii, 524-8). During the reign of James II he was appointed 
chaplain to the Duke of Berwick's regiment, and he obtained consider- 
able celebrity by the able manner in which he conducted public disputa- 
tions with some of the most learned Protestant divines, more especially 
with Dr. Stillingfleet and Dr. Clagett. No man, says Dodd {Church 
History, iii), was better qualified to come off with I'eputation in a personal 
conference than ]\Ir. Gooden. He was regarded in all respects a formid- 
able disputant. The Revolution of 1688, however, obliged liim to retire 
to his former abode at Aldcliffe Hall, where he died Dec. 29, 1694, and 
was buried according to the register at the parish church of Lancaster 
two days later. Administration to his estate was granted in the same 
year. The first item of his bibliography appended to his memoir in 
the writer's previously cited Biog. Diet, was probably written at Leighton 
in 1671. 

Of the names of Mr. Gooden's immediate successors at Leighton 
Hall we have no positive information, but from the record of Bishop 
John Leyburne's visitations it appears that his lordship confirmed 84 
persons in the domestic chapel at Leighton on Sept. 6, 1687 (Brady, 
Episcop. Succession, iii, 144). The next chaplain found was — 

Rev. John Pearson (or Pierson), another Lisbon priest, who became 
an alumnus at that college April 17, 1688, was ordained priest Dec. 21, 
1689, left for Lancashire Jan. 2, 1693, and was apparently at Leighton 
in 1697. The date of his removal or death has not been ascertained 
(Gillow, Reg. of Lisbon College, p. 238 ; Declaration of Lane. Clergy, 
March 3, 1697, MS.). Another chaplain 

UKC.ISIKUS OK vKalanp 37 

Rev. George Lcyburnc, born ^lay 25, 1673, second sou of George 
Leyburne, of Nateby Hall and Cunswick Hall, and his wife Elizabeth, 
daughter of George Preston, of Holker Hall. Consequently, Mrs. 
Leyburne was sister to Lady Middleton. She had previously been 
married to Jolin Sayer, of Worsall, co. York, and afterwards to Nathaniel 
West, of Borwick Hall, some few miles from Leighton, who was nephew 
of Thomas West, 3rd Lord de la Warr. George Leyburne took the oaths 
at Douay College on Dec. 27, 1689, and Sept. 8, 1690, and in due course 
came to the mission in Lancashire. The Jacobite squire Thomas 
Tyldcslc}- was his godfather, and notes in his diary under date ;May 15, 
1 713, that " Godson Laybome " went home with me to Lancaster, and 
again on tlie following day, " dined with Godson Layborne, who went 
aftenvards to Leighton " (Gillow, Tyldesley Diary, p. 89). The diarist 
also records on the 31st of the preceding month accompanying the high- 
sheriff, " cos. fHetcher," "cos. Hodgson " of Leighton Hall, and others 
to ;Mr. Beardsworth's, and again on the following Nov. 19, that the 
priest's brother, " Jemmj^ Layborne call<i in his way from Leighton." 
It does not appear how long Mr. Leyburne served Leighton. He 
occasionally officiated at Nateby HaU, and was there in 1717, but 
eventually died in StafEordshire in 1736 {C.R.S., xvi, 516). His suc- 
cessor was — 

Rev. Thomas Rawdon or ^oydon. alias Comforth, of the ancient 
family of Rawdon of Rawdon Hall, in the West Riding of York, who 
took the oath at Douay Aug. 15, 1681 {Douay Diaries, p. 50) . He taught 
humanities, poetry, and rhetoric for four or five years, and left for 
the mission Oct. 9, 1692 [Douay Lists, MS.). He wais appointed by 
patent of Bishop James Smith, rural dean of Lonsdale Hundred Jan. 3, 
1699 {Ushaw Collections, MSS., ii, 81-4). In September, 1708, accord- 
ing to Dr. Kirk {citing Ep. Var., \iii, 155), " ^vith Bishop Smith's consent, 
he went from Douay to Notre Dame des Victoires, in Paris, to spend 
one year there to make him more fit for the mission " (ICirk, Biog. 
Collections MSS., printed edition, p. 196). In Robert Stephenson's 
deed poll of trust uses for Dodding Green, co. Westmorland, dated 
May 14, 1 7 14, Mr. Roydon appears as being then chaplain at Leighton 
HaU {Stephenson's Charities, p. 47). Previous to this, if not at the same 
time, he was riding-chaplain to the Leyburnes at the halls of Cunswick, 
Skelsmergh, and Witherslack, residing mostly at the first ; and he also 
attended to the chapel at Selside Hall, the seat of William Thornburgh. 
Tyldesley mentions his calling upon him in Lancaster under date 
Feb. 25, 1713. "In the morning Docf Harden [Edward Hawarden, 
then chaplain at Aldcliffe HaU], Jemmy Layborne, and Mr. Royden 
came to see mee " {Tyldesley Diary, p. 75). On jNIay 12, 1715, he was 
elected archdeacon of the Chapter {Old Chapter Records, MS.). 

It was in this year, 1715, that the Chevalier de St. George made his 
abortive effort to recover the throne of his ancestors, and to the years 
of personal trouble which ensued IVIr. Roydon alludes in his letter to 
Dr. Robert Withani of April 24, 1724. He refers to the plunder and 
destruction of his effects and papers, when, being an itinerant missioner, 
most of his quarters and chief stations were disturbed and seized by the 
Commissioners for Forfeited Estates, their baUifis and tenants. He 
speaks of the miles he was forced to travel in his flight through several 
distinct parishes and counties. " When I reached home (if I may call 
it home, Avhere God be my comfort, I scarce ever rest three nights suc- 
cessively in the same bed), I had but a scantling of time to search into 
holes and snatch up materials." He then describes how lie rode in 
1716 — " On the 3 Oct., I traveUed from Kendal by Wycliff [seat of the 

3S K|-r,IsrKRS OF VKAl.ANl) 

Tuiistailsj tv Pierce bridge over the ruyyed roads ol our hills and your 
Stainmore, above 46 long miles in one single, and that one, no long day. 
On the 4th I waited on you at Cliffe," and then goes on, " My Journal 
lodges me at Aldborough [seat of the Meynells], Nov. 24, 17 16, carries 
me to ClifEe and back on the 26th. Again to Cliffe and back on Dec. 1st. 
On the 2'! to Richmond, on the 3"^ to Dauby, the residence of my cousin 
Cornforth [Thomas Cornforth alias Roydoii, chaplain to the Scropes], 
removes me on the 7th to Yorke. What was the busines of these 
motions ? I was to consult you at Cliffe." 

Thomas Fletcher, of Hutton Hall, the pervert to whom allusion has 
been made, on Sept. 12, 1716, deposed to the Commissioners that he 
knew " Thomas Roydon, a priest who inhabits a tenement called Lew- 
house, in p. of Wetherall, co. Cumberland, at a ^25 rental, held under the 
Duke of Portland, and that about four years agoe," Roydon told him 
that the tenement was one of the benefactions of Sir Henry Fletcher in 
trust for the support and maintenance of himself and the Rev. John 
Bates alias Lodge. The latter was chaplain to the Stapletons of Caxlton 
Hall, and died there March 26, 1741, aged 59 (Payne, Records of English 
Catholics, p. 128 ; Old Chapter Records MSS.). In 1717, as Thomas 
Rawdon alias Roydon, of Stearsby, co. York, gent., he registered pro-- 
perty Iield a.s administrator to his uncle, the Rev. Thomas Faciby alias 
Rawdon, chaplain to Mr. Meynell (Payiie, Catholic Non-jiirors, p. 28). 

As soon as the troubles subsided, Mr. Roydon took up his residence 
with his patron, Mr. Robert Stephenson, at Dodding Green, who died 
there April 23, 1723, having settled his property in trust for a permanent 
mission, which covered much of Mr. Roydon's old riding-mission. He 
is found supplying at Selside Hall in 171S. For two months in 1720 he, 
as vicar-general, attended Bishop Thomas Williams during his visita- 
tion of Lancashire. Thus he spent the remainder of his very active 
life at Dodding Green, where he died Oct. 30, 1741, and was buried in 
the parish church of Kendal two days later. 

On Dec. 12, 1747, according to the accounts of the Common Stock 
for the Lancashire Vicariate at the disposal of Bishop Edward Dicconson 
alias Eaton, there still remained a sum of ;^82 2s. 6d. in the hands of 
Mr. Roydon's nephew and namesake at Dodding Green entrusted to 
him by Lady Middleton of Leighton Hall. 

Soon after Mr. Roydon's departure from Leighton, an episcopal return 
was made of the catholics residing there in 171 7, and the number was 
put down at only seven by the vicar of the parish. From this time till 
1 761 no priest's name in connection with the mission has been found, 
either in Bishop Dicconson's list of his clergy from 1741-52 or in other 
records. Nevertheless the chapel in the hall was no doubt served by a 
riding-priest or from some neighbouring mission, most likely Robert 
Hall, some few miles distant (see C.R.S., iv, 319). The next resident 
cliaplain on record was — 

Rev. Michael Wharton, born 1733, near Kirkby Stephen, co. West- 
morland, being descended from the Whartons of ^^Tlarton and Kirkby- 
thore in that county, and of Beverley, co. York, of whom Sir ^Michael 
Wharton was living in 1724. Pie was admitted on Revell's Fund at 
the English College at Lisbon, Nov. 7, 1 751, became an alumnus March 13, 
1756, was ordained priest Dec. 20, 1760, and left for England to become 
chaplain at Leighton Hall July iS, 1761, wliere he commenced to keep 
registers soon afterwards. In the return made by the vicai of Warton 
to the Bishop of Chester in 1767, it is said that Mr. Wharton, priest, 
resided with George Towneley, Esq., and that the Catholics in the parish 
were estimated at 54. At the Visitation made by Bisliop William 


Walton, coadjutor to Bishop riancis Petre, on June lo, 1774, his lord- 
sliip confimied ten persons in the chapel in the hall. In 1782 Mr. and 
Mrs. Towneley, prior to leaving Leighton, provided a residence for Mr. 
Wharton in the adjoining village of Yealand Conyers, and improvised 
a chapel in the attics whilst a chapel, dedicated to St. Mary, was being 
erected adjoining the house. In a letter to Rev. Matthew Gibson, then 
of Lartington Hall, dated York, Nov. 28, 1782, Bishop Walton says 
" that Mr. Towneley has left Leighton, but has fixed his chaplain, Mr. 
Wharton, very agreeably " {Ushaw Collections, MSS., ii, 385). In 
another letter, dated Feb. 3, 1783, the Rev. John Chadwick, of Weld 
Bank, vicar-general for Lancashire to the new bishop, Matthew Gibson, 
estimates the number of communicants at " Leighton " at 70. The 
mission, though still styled Leighton, was really at Yealand. It was 
visited by Bishop Gibson on Sept. 12, 1784, when 16 persons were con- 
firmed, Mr. Wharton returning the communicants in the congregation 
at 90. In the bishop's return to Rome of the condition of his diocese, 
dated Jan. 8, 1791, Michael Wharton is put down as at " Leighton." 
Mr. Wharton was rural dean of Lonsdale Hundred, and he continued 
at Yealand till his death Dec. 10, 1809, aged 76. 

During his incumbency the Rev. John Worswick died at Leighton 
Hall, the seat of his brother Alexander, Oct. 2, 1809, aged 48. For some 
little time he had said Mass in the domestic chapel, and in that at Cold- 
ham Hall, Suffolk, the seat of his brother-in-law, Robert Gage-Roke- 
wode, son of Sir Thomas Gage, of Hengrave, Bart. His sister Mary 
Gage-Rokewode died at Leighton Sept. 27, 1807, aged 26, and her only 
child, Maria Charlotte, in Dec, 1813, aged 17, and both were buried at 
Warton. A family mausoleum existed in the wood adjoining the hall, 
in which numbers of the Worswicks and Gillows were interred, but 
the bodies were removed to the family vault adjoining the chapel at 
Yealand Conyers during the time of Richard Thomas Gillow, Esq. 
The mausoleum was then demolished, and now only a cross of white 
limestone marks the site, bearing the inscription — 

Hoc in situ stabat mausoleum in quo corpora familiae GiUow sepulta 
erant anti quam translata erant ad ecclesiam apud Yealand erectam 
sumptibus Ricardi Thomas Giliow, armigeri. 

Mr. Wharton was succeeded by — 

Rev. Basil Richard Barrett, born May 11, 1781, younger son of John 
Briant Barrett, of Milton House, near Abingdon, co. Berks., by Winefrid, 
daughter of John Eyston, of East Hendred, in the same county. He went 
to St. Omer's College in August, 1790, but escaped to England during 
the French Revolution prior to the seizure of the college. He joined 
the refugees from Douay College after they had become firmly estab- 
lished at Crook Hall in June, 1795, and there, witli his elder brother 
George, in due course was ordained priest, about July, 1806. His first 
appointment was to Cliffe Hall, in succession to the Rev. William Cogh- 
lan. Later he was transferred to Pocklington, and thence came to 
Yealand upon the death of Mr. Wharton in 1809. Here he wrote his 
" Pretensions to a Final Analysis of the Nature and Origin of Sublimity, 
Style, Beauty, Genius, and Taste," published at London in 18 12, 
and also his " Life of Cardinal Ximenes," London, 18 13. He also wrote 
" A Mathematical Treatise showing how the Circle can be Squared," 
which Sir Humphrey Davy, Bart., returned to him after examination, 
saying that he did not understand the calculations. Probably no 
one else could, so the work was never published. In 1820 his liealth 
became seriously impaired, no doubt accelerated by his vain attempt to 
square the circle, so he repaired to Bath. In the following year he was 


put uuder the care ol a physician at Bristol, and in iSzg was removed 
to an asylum for priests in Belgium, where he died May 3, 1858, aged 77 
(Gillow, Biog. Did., i, 144-5). The mission was temporarily served by — 
Rev. Thomas Wilkinson, born at or near Hornby, Nov. Ji, 1762, 
who was sent to Douay College, where he arrived Aug. 2, 1776, and 
became an alumnus in 1785. It is asserted that he was the last priest 
ordained in the college chapel, on April 11, 1789. lie then taught first 
class rudiments till Dec. 21 of that year, when he was made professor 
of poetry, and on the following Oct. i, 1790, of rhetoric. During the 
French J^evolution he left the college for the English mission, July 20, 
1792, and was appointed assistant to the Rev. Thomas Johnson, of 
Kendal, whom he succeeded in 1803. Thence from 1812 to 1820 he 
served Dodding Green, and from 1820 to 1822 he attended to Yealand. 
At length, after being incumbent of Kendal for sixty-five years he retired 
to Ushaw, where he died, and was interred in the college cemetery, 
Dec. 30, 1857, aged 95. Some time before his death he presented his 
valuable and extensive library of about 12,000 volumes to Ushaw College 
{Douay Lists, MS.; Adam Wilkinson, Hist, of Kendal and Neighbourivg 
Missions, MS.). The next resident priest at Yealand, wdio came in 
1822, was — 

Rev. Henry Banister alias Rutter, born Feb. 24, 1755, son of Adam 
Banister, of Hesketh Bank, co. Lancaster, yeoman, who arri\ed at Douay 
College Sept. 26, 1768, and when deacon in his fourth year's divinity 
was sent from Douay April 30, 1781, to become a professor at St. Omer's 
College. Thence he came to the English mission, and was appointed 
chaplain to the Silvertops at Minster Acres, Northumberland, in 1784. 
He was supplying at Pontop Hall, co. Durham, in 1791, but was still at 
Minster Acres in 1808, and meanwhile had been elected a member of 
the Old Chapter in 1803. In the summer of 1820 he was at Tynemouth, 
and there he is supposed to have said the first Mass since the so-called 
Reformation. In 1822 he came to Yealand, and here he continued 
to write some of liis works, a list of which is gi\en in the writer's Biog. 
Diet, of the English Catholics, v, 458-60 . During liis term Bishop Tliomas 
Penswick made his visitation at Yealand, and gave confirmation on 
Sept. 2, 1825, and June 19, 1831. In January, 1834, he removed from 
Yealand, and took possession of the mission of his late uncle, the Rev 
Robert Banister, of Dodding Green. This mission from the time of 
his uncle's death in 181 2 had been supplied from Kendal. There he 
remained till his sudden death, whilst going to meet his nephew Alexan- 
der Goss, then a student at Ushaw, and subsequently Bishop of Liver- 
pool, Sept. 17, 1838, aged 83. He w-as buried at Kendal. His portrait 
in oil is at Dodding Green. Upon his departure in Jajiuary, 1834, 
Yealand was temporarily supplied by — 

Rev. William Brown, who had established the mission of Great 
Crosby, co. Lancaster, in 1826, and died there Aug. 2, 1850, aged 49 
( Tablet, xi, 500) . The next permanent incumbent was — 

Rev. Dominic Joseph. Maini, whose memoir has appeared C.R.S., xiii, 
231. He came in 1834, and remained till Oct. 15, 1846. He died at 
St. Anthony's, Liverpool, Sept. 11, 1856. During his term visitations 
were niade at Yealand by Bishops Penswick, Sept. 27, 1835, John 
Briggs, Aug. 23, 1839, and George Brown, Oct. 5, 1845, and Sept. 13, 
1853, on which occasions confirmations were given. His successor was — 
Rev. William Henderson, who arrived at Yealand Oct. 7, 1846. 
His brief memoir appears C.R.S., vi, 323. After forty years' service 
here he retired to Lytham in 1887, where he diea Jan. 30, 1893, aged 84 
{Orthodox Journal, iv, 64 ; Catholic Times, Feb. 3, 1893, p. 3).

During his term, the then squire ol Leighton, Richard Thomas 
Gillow, erected a handsome Gothic church adjoining the old presbytery 
and chapel, which wa^ consecrated Aug. 4, 1852. It is in the early 
English st>'le, 76 ft. X20 ft., and it cost about ;^i,200. Mr. Henderson 
was succeeded by — 

Rev. Joseph Parker, who was ordained at Ushaw Aug. 7, 18S1, and 
served at Liverpool till he came to Yealand in 1887. Here he stayed 
till he went to Euxton, near Chorley, in 1892, thence removed in 1893 
to Everton, and finally in 1894 to Tyldesley, where he died July 29, 1898 
{Liverpool Catholic Aim., 1S99, p. 191, with portrait). He was succeeded 
at Yealand by —

This register is a ledger-shaped book, containing 258 unruled pages, 
measuring 12^ x 4 inches, backed with stiff boards, half -bound in buff 
leather. The varying qualities of paper used would lead one to conjec- 
ture that the baptisms, marriages, confirmations, and Easter lists 
were originally kept as separate books, and were later bound into the 
present volume. 

Lists of Easter Communicants are given annually from 1763 to 1871 
(inclusive), with the exception of the years 18 10, t8ii, and 1822. They 
occupy pages 5-36, 100-115, 121-240. 

Baptisms are given from April 11, 1762, to July 20, 1S56. They 
occupy pages 37-99- 

Marriages are given from 1764 to 1855, there being only 29 entries. 
They occupy pages 1 17-120, 169, and 243-245. 

Deaths are recorded on p. 251 from 1 824-1 844. This list, like the 
marriage list, is evidently incomplete. 

Confirmations. Ten lists are given, viz.: 1774, 1784, 1793. 1803, 
1825, 1831, 1835, 1839, 1845, and 1853. They occupy pages 253-257. 

[Qn the inside of the front cover.] NB. This Register was begun 
by Rev. Michael Wharton at Leighton Hall in 1763 to 1809 ; was 
continued by liis successor the Rev. Basil Barrett to 1820. The 
Rev. Henry Rutter succeeded him in 1822. 

[Pages 1-4 are blank; the Easter lists 1763 to 1830 inclusive, 
cover -pages 5-36.]

aged 77, who had married at Lancaster Feb. 11, 1761, Sarah, daughter of Robert 
Haresnape, ot Thumhain, the representative of an ancient Catholic family. 
Whilst residing in London in the eighteenth century Mr. Gillow's father 
maintained a house in Prospect Place, Margate, during the summer months, 
where he had a domestic chapel served by family chaplains. Tliis was the 
commencement of the mission in Margate, in or before 1793, and in 1801, 
through Mr. Gillow's munificence, a small chapel was erected in Prospect Place. 
Mr. Richard Gillow, junior, for some time resided at Little Holland House, 
Campden Hill, Kensington, where many of his children were bom, whilst 
others were bom at Ellel Grange and Leighton Hall. His wife died at Leighton 
Hall, Nov. 18, 1848, aged 68, and he himself Dec. iC, 1849, aged 76, and both 
were interred in the family mausoleum in the park. 

' 'f Elizabeth Gillow, bom in London, was sent to the Franciscan Convent 
School at Taunton in 1813. There she received the habit Nov. 8, 1819, and 
the name in religion of Mary Frances Angela ; was professed Nov. 21, 1820 ; and 
died July 17, 1881, in her 8oth year. Her aunt, Agnes Gillow, had preceded 
her to the same community, then at Winchester, and received the habit Aug. 5, 
1800, in her 36th year, under the name in religion of Mary Joseph Agnes, was 
professed June 8, 1802, and died July 9, 1818, aged 53 {Taunton Reg. MS.). 

J The Rev. John Law arrived at Douay College in September, 1782, when 
the Kev. John Gillow was prefect of studies. He became an uhimmis June 5, 
1790 ; escaped from the college during the French Revolution with Thomas 
Gillow, when in his third year's theology, in October, 1793, and both arrived 
with James Worswick at Old Hall College in the same month. There he was 
appointed a professor, and was ordained priest in June, 1794. He was prefect 
from August, 1 795-1 798, procurator 1798-1 801, and then became one of the 
chaplains at St. Mary's, Moorhelds. In 1828 he was appointed chaplain to 
Lord Petre at Ingatestone Hall, Essex, where he died of cholera morbus 
Sept. 5, 1832, aged 05 (Gillow, Haydock Papers ; Cath. Mag., ii, 068 ; Douay 
Lists, MS.: Old Hall Reg. MS.; Chapter Deceased Brethren, MS.). 

§ Lady Gerard, Mrs. Gillow's cousin, was Anna Maria, daughter of Miles 
Stapleton, whose eldest brother Thomas claimed the Barony of Beaumont

in her 8ist year. Her father's cousin, Jane Gillow, only daughter of Robert 
Gillow, Esq., and Jane Shaw his wife, was born at Lancaster in 1773. At an 
early age she was sent to the English Augustinian Convent in the rue des Fosses- 
Saint Victor at Pans, and hnished her education with the nuns of the Congrega- 
tion of the Yen. Pere Foumier at Douay. Her desire to embrace a religious

vL-r-sary of his looth birthday by leading off at a ball at the hall. In his day

preaching, inscribed — " Rev. George Gillow — Drawn from life on stone by 
l-'enauille," was published in the early sixties ; and another of similar size and

LANCASTER. 1 784-1 8S7. 


The mission has been so fully and elaborately treated in " St. Peter's, 
Lancaster. A Histor>'. By Richard Newman Billington, Canon of 
Liverpool, V.F., and Rector of St. Peter's, and John Brownbill, M.A,, 
formerly Scholar of St. John's College, Cambridge," published in quarto 
with illustrations by Sands & Co., London, so recently as 1910, that little 
more is necessary than a brief resume, with certain amplifications, to 
preface the registers. 

After the accession of Queen Elizabeth, during the sixteenth and 
seventeenth centuries, no regularly established mission would have been 
tolerated by the civil authorities in an assize town like Lancaster, and 
consequently the adherents of the old Faith had to depend for their 
religious observances and sacerdotal services upon priests who were 
sheltered at different periods in the houses of Catholics in the vicinity. 
Principally amongst these may be noted (i) Aldclifie Hall, locally 
known as " The Catholic Virgins," a seat of the Daltons of Thurnham 
Hall ; (2) Dolphinlee in Bulk, another property of the Daltons, 
long leased and occupied by the Copelands, and later by the Balls ; 
(3) Quemmore Park, or Park Hall, an estate of the Prestons of 
Furness, and afterwards of the Cliflfords, but occupied by their 
tenants, the Taylors and others ; (4) Scale Hall, in Skerton, an 
ancient seat of the Singletons, and later of the Bradshaws ; (5) High- 
field, a seat of the Southworths ; (6) Halton Hall, the seat of the 
Cams family ; and (7) Heaton Hall, belonging to the Brockholes 
family of Claughton Hall, in the parish of Garstang, sometimes 
occupied by them, and otherwise by Catholic tenants. 

Many priests were imprisoned in Lancaster Castle, and many 
were martyred, but these do not come within our purview of those 
ministering to the Catholics of the town, though in those lax days 
prisoners were at times allowed such opportunities by their jailers. 
Probably itinerant missioners occasionally visited the town and said 
Mass in the houses of Catholic residents. Such a one may have 
been the Rev, Thomas Hayes, " a Romish Priest," buried at St. 
Mary's parish church of Lancaster, Dec. 31, 1692 {Register, MS.), 
though he was more probably chaplain at Aldcliffe Hall. He 
appears as a member of the Lancashire and Westmorland Clergy 
Fund between 16S2-92 (Kirk, Biog., p. 260). Early in the eighteenth 
century Squire Tyldesley had a town house in Lancaster, and 
constantly had priests staying with him. Upon his fifty-fifth birth- 
day, April 3, 1712, he notes in his diary that he went to con- 
fession to the Rev. William Winckley alias Westby, and it may be 
assumed that on the occasion Mass was said in the house. The 
diarist adds : " In y» eivening went out with cos. W : W : Tucke 


yo old House in Lenard Gattc of Thomas Gibson " (Gillow, Tyldesley 
Diary, 1873, p. 17). At this time " cos. W : W : " was the diarist's 
usual confessor, and frequently served his chapel in Fox Hall. A 
notice of him ajipears C.R.S., xvi, 583. Tyldesley never refers to 
liis own removal to the Old House in St. Leonardgate, hence it 
lias been surmised that he took the premises for the purpose of 
establishing an independent missionary residence in the town. The 
Jacobite rising, then brewing, probably inspired the ecclesiastical 
authorities with caution, and deterred the plan, and it was some 
years before it was carried out. Anyhow, it was not before the 
beginning of 1720, when the troubles following the rising of 1715 
had subsided, that evidence is found of the appointment of a 
resident priest. About that time the Rev. Nicholas Skelton took 
possession of certain premises in St. Leonardgate, inclusive of a 
barn which was used as a chapel, and from that date the consecu- 
tive list of incumbents is as follows : — 

Rev. Nicholas Skelton, a younger son of Richard Skelton, of 
Armathwaite Castle, co. Cumberland, Esq., and his wife Mary, 
daughter of George Meynell, of Dalton-Royal, co. York, Esq., born 
Dec. 17, 1691, was sent to Douay College in 1705 ; took the 
college oath Nov. 3, 1710 ; appointed to teach grammar Oct. i, 
1713 ; ordained sub-deacon at Tournai March 13, deacon at Cambrai 
March 27, 1717, and priest in December, 1718. On Oct. i, 1719, 
he was designated to teach grammar, which he resigned, and on 
account of ill-health left the college for the mission Jan. 15, 1720 
{Douay Diaries, pp. 55, 89, 90 ; Douay Lists, MS.). He came to 
Lancaster, and was entrusted with the care of the Catholics in and 
about the town. He was on friendly terms with the Duke of 
Hamilton, when resident at Ashton Hall, just outside Lancaster, 
who visited him in St. Leonardgate, and consequently his position 
was rendered more secure. He was an agent in Lancashire for 
Douay College, and one of his account books in connection there- 
with, from January, 1735, to July, 1748, is still in existence. He 
was also rural dean of Lonsdale Hundred. After the Jacobite 
rising of 1745 Mr. Skelton was committed to Lancaster Castle as 
a priest, and suspected of being concerned in the rebellion, but 
nothing being proved against him — as in the case of priests through- 
out the country — he was soon liberated (Kirk, Biog. Collections MSS.), 
and thenceforth continued peacefully to serve his mission in Lan- 
caster till his death, Nov. 13, 1766, aged 76. He was succeeded 

Rev. James Tyrer, born in 1741 at St. Helens, co. Lancaster 
(Kirk, Biog., 270), who arrived at Douay College in August, 1751, 
took the oath of the alumni in his third year's tlieology. May 24, 
r764, aged 23 years and four months {Douay Diaries, p. 73), and, 
after teaching for two years and having been ordained priest 
March 25, 1766, by the Bishop of Arras, he left the college on 
Oct. 9 of the same year to take charge of the Lancaster mission 
{Douay Lists, MS.). Here he remained till just before his death, 
when he went on a visit to Hardshaw Hall, St. Helens, where a 
mission had existed from the time of Elizabeth, and dying there 
was interred within the ruined chantry at Windleshaw under a stone 
bearing the inscription : " I.H.S. Rev. James Tyrer, of Lancaster. 
He died at Hardshaw, the 5th of May, 1784. Aged 44. R.I. P." 

Shortly after Mr. Tyrer's arrival in Lancaster, a return of 
" Papists " was made by the vicars and rectors of parishes to the 


Protestant Bishop of Chester in 1767, the numbers, presumably 
adults, being 640 in Lancaster, 71 in Caton, Littledale, and Gressing- 
ham, 12 in Overton and Poulton, and 27 in Bolton-le-Sands {Historic- 
Society's Transactions, N.S., x\iii, 218). On the other hand, the 
Catholic bishop, William Walton, V.A.-N.D., in 1774, made his 
visitation at Lancaster, and confirmed 72 members belonging to 
the congregations of Lancaster and Dolphinlee ; and the vicar- 
general of the vicariate, the Rev. John Chadwick, on Feb. 3, 1783, 
estimated the communicants in Mr. Tyrcr's chapel at 300. 

Rev. John Rigby, D.D., a native of Lancashire, succeeded Mr. 
Tyrer to the mission, and took possession about September, 1784. 
His memoir appears in the writer's Biog. Diet, of the English Catho- 
lics, V, 421, and Dr. John Kirk's Biographies, p. 198, as well as 
in the History of St. Peter's, in sufficient detail to make it un- 
necessary to add more. Meanwhile, until Dr. Rigby's arrival, the 
mission was supplied from Alston Lane by the Rev. Thomas Caton 
{C.R.S., xiii, 372 ; and xv, iii), the Rev. James Carter alias 
Mawdesley from Newhouse {C.R.S., xv, 320), and the Rev. Richard 
Edmundson from Alston Lane, and their registers of baptism, 
commencing in April, continue to Oct. 10, 17S4. The first baptism 
registered by Dr. Rigby is dated Nov. 3, 1784, and the first marri- 
age Jan. 16, 1785, the last entries in the first book being respectively 
Feb. 20, 1799, and Nov. 25, 1798. An abbreviated copy of this book 
is printed in the history of " St. Peter's, Lancaster," pp. 217-237. The 
second book commences March i, 1799. 

During Dr. Rigby's administration Bishop Matthew Gibson made 
his visitation on Sept. 14, 1784, and confirmed 42 persons, the 
newly-installed incumbent returning the communicants at 400. In 
1797 Dr. Rigb}- purchased land in Dalton Square for a new chapel, 
with the assistance of Mr. Richard Gillow, senior, of Lancaster, 
one of the principal supporters of the mission, who generously 
purchased, on Aug. 31, 1798, the old chapel in Mason Street at 
the rear of the priest's house in St. Leonardgate with the whole 
premises. Thus a chapel, dedicated to St. Peter, was erected on 
the new site, and opened March i, 1799. Dr. Rigby died on 
June 10, 1818, aged 64, and was succeeded after a vacancy of 
several months by — 

Rev. George Hilary Brown, subsequently first bishop of Liverpool, 
who arrived at Lancaster from Ushaw College, in April, 1819. In 
1840 the Lancashire Vicariate was created out of the old Northern 
Vicariate, and Mr. Brown was appointed to the charge, and was 
consecrated bishop of Bugia in partibus infidelium on Aug. 24. He 
retained the rectorship of the Lancaster mission till October, 1841, 
the practical work being discharged by his nephew and successor — 

Rev. Richard Melchiades Brown {C.R.S., xvi, 584), who arrived 
in August, 1840. In 1847 he purchased three acres of land at 
Greenfield, for the purposes of a cemetery, formed in 1849-50, new 
schools, and a convent erected in 185 1-3, and a new church with 
presbytery consecrated Oct. 4, and opened for public worship 
Oct. 6, 1859. The luncheon on the latter occasion was presided 
over by Mr. Richard T. Gillow, of Leighton Hall, grandson of Mr. 
Richard Gillow, senior, as representative of the chief promoters of 
the old chapel. Mr. Brown, having resigned the dignity of a canon 
of Liverpool, which he had held from 1852-4, retained that of 
rural dean of the Lancashire and Furness districts till his death, 
Dec. 31, 1868, aged 62. 


During his term he had the assistance of several curates — 
(i) Rev. James Taylor, 1858-60 {C.R.S., xvi, 427). 

(2) Rev. Robert Smith, eldest son of Mr. Richard Smith, of 
Preston, who studied at Ushaw and the CoUegio Pio at Rome, at 
the latter of which he was ordained priest Dec. 17, 1859. His 
grandmother, Ann, wife of Mr. Robert Smith, of Larbreck, was sister 
to Bishop Brown, and it was probably owing to this relationship 
that he came as assistant to Dean Brown from i860 to 1864. 
Subsequently he returned to Rome, was vice-rector of the Collegio 
Pio till its suppression, and for some time lived as chaplain to a 
convent in Florence. Ultimately he became a Camaldolese monk at 
Rome, where he lived at Santa Croce to an advanced age. 

(3) Rev. James Parkinson, 1864-6, who had been ordained priest 
at Valladolid Feb. 28, 1863. He removed to Liverpool in 1866, 
thence to St. Joseph's, Preston, 1867-72; Barrow-in-Furness, 1872-5; 
again to St. Joseph's, Preston, 1875-7, ^"^ finally to Croft, 1877-82, 
when he retired from missionary duty and died Jan. iS, 1883. 

(4) Rev. William Massey, ordained priest at Ushaw Jan. 21, 
1866, who came as curate to Dean Brown, and after the latter's 
death remained with his successor until 1877. He then removed to 
Ulverston, thence in 1887 to Waterloo, Liverpool, whence he helped 
to found St. George's at MaghuU, and died at Waterloo, April 23, 
1889 {Liverpool Diocesan Annual, 1890, p. 85, with portrait). 

Dean Brown's successor at St. Peter's was — 

Rev. Canon William Walker, subsequently provost of the Liver- 
pool chapter (C.R.S., xvi, 593), who continued in charge till his 
death, Nov. 28, 1893, aged 73, and was succeeded by — 

Rev. Canon Richard Newman Billington, the present rector.

5|c The Rev. John Lindow was on a visit to his relatives and friends in 
Lancashire. He was son of James Lindow and his wife Bridget Ormandy, 
both belonging to families long settled in the parish of Ulvcrston, where he was 
born in 1729. In his youth he was apprenticed with a cabinet-maker, but 
feeling a vocation for the priesthood he was sent by Bishop Challoner to Douay 
College, where he was admitted in May, 1754. There he was placed in 3rd 
class underlow, became an alumnus Sept. 29, 1761, at the age of 32, and after 
receiving orders in 1764-5 he was sent to the London mission {Douay 
Lists MS.; Douay Diaries, p. 72). On Oct. 16, 1770, he was elected a member 
of the Old Chapter, and became archdeacon of Cornwall, Dexoii, and Dorset, 
and also treasurer, till upon the death of the venerable Dean, the Rev. Peter 
Browne, May 31, 1794, he succeeded to that dignity (Old Chapter Records MSS.; 
Gillow, Haydock Papers, p. 168). Mr. Lindow resided many years with Bishop 
James Talbot and afterwards with Bishop W^illiam Poynter in Castle Street. 
The Rev. Thomas Walsh, in a letter at Ushaw College written in 1778, speaks 
in the highest terms of his missionary efforts. In 1805 he retired to St. 
Edmund's College, Old Hall Green, of which he had long been administrator, 
and of which he is said to have given the original plan, and there he died 
Dec. 5, 1806, aged 77, and was buried at Standon, where his tombstone may 
still be seen (Chapter Deceased Brethren MS.;\<'3iTd. Hist. ofOld Hall ; Kirk,

{41) 1793 

In this year after the entry of the baptism of Joseph Atkinson 
on the 14 Ap. — are three entries which are almost illegible from the 
fading of the ink — I have thought it well to copy them. 

(10) April 25. Baptizavi Thomam filium Marmaduke Ball

It does not appear who was the minister of these three baptisms, 
the signature of the Rev. T. Caton who baptized Joseph Atkinson is 
in different ink and perfectly legible. William Canon Walker

Thurnhani is a township in tlic parish of Lancaster, co-palatine of 
Lancaster, four and a half miles south-nortli-west from the county 
town. Thurnham Hall, the ancient residence of the lords of the manor, 
.is actually situated in the parish of Cockerham, wliich includes a portion 
'of the township of Thurnham. Cockersand Abbey, founded in the time 
of Richard I for Cluniac monks of the Premonstratcnsian order, is witliin 
the township of Thurnhani, or rather is entirely bounded by it on the 
landward side, being in itself an extra-parochial i)lace, with its own over- 
seers, guardians, etc. 

It became the possession of the Dalton family partly by purchase 
in 1556, and partly through the marriage of Robert Dalton, lord of Dal- 
ton and Bispham, with Anne, eldest daughter of John Kytchen, of Pilling 
Hall, Esq., to whom Cockersand Abbey and lands had been granted after 
the dissolution of monasteries. Robert, not having anj' children, 
settled his estates in 1572 on his younger brother Thomas and his heirs, 
and Robert's will of 1578 was proved in i3cSo. By his wiie Anne, 
daughter of Sir Richard Molyneux, of Sefton, who was living a widow in 
1577, Thomas was succeeded by his son Robert Dalton, of Thurnham 
Hall, Esq., who died in 1626. He married Elizabeth, daughter of Wil- 
liam Hulton, of Hulton Park, co. Lancaster, Esq., whose family hitherto 
had retained the Faith, and his younger son, Robert Dalton, baptized 
at Cockersand July 25, 1614, was admitted into Douay College under 
the alias of Hulton Aug. 9, 1631 {C.R.S., x, 296). The eldest son, Thomas 
Dalton, a recusant like his ancestors, was the famous Colonel who raised 
a Regiment of Horse at his own charge for the King, and died Nov. 2, 
1643, from wounds received at the second battle of Newbury. He mar- 
ried Elizabeth, daughter of Robert ISliddleton, younger son of George 
Middleton, of Leighton Hall, Esq., and she was living a widow in 1652. 
Their son, Robert Dalton, who was admitted into Douay College, 
where he used the alias of Holland, July 30, 1655, at the age of 15 
{C.R.S., xi, 526), was the last heir male of the original Daltons. He died 
in 1704, leaving two daughters — a son Robert having died s.p. in his 
father's lifetime — who became coheiresses to extensive estates. The 
eldest, Elizabeth, upon whom lier father in 1700 limited his estate of 
Thurnham, married in 1683 William Hoghton, of Park Hall, in Charnock 
Richard, Esq., and the younger, Dorothy, became the wife of Edward 
Riddell, of Swinburne Castle, co. Northumberland, Esq., her marriage 
settlement being dated April 25, 1693, and she inherited the manors of 
Caton and Aldcliffe. The latter's eldest son, Thomas Riddell, was 
attainted of high treason for his participation in the attempt to obtain 
the throne of his ancestors by the Chevalier de St. George in 1713 
(Payne, Records, p. 143). 

Elizabeth's eldest son, John Hoghton, assumed the name of Dalton 
about 1710, and married Frances, daughter f)l Sir Piers Mostyn, of 


Talacre Hall, co. Flint, Bart., whilst younger sons were — William 
Hoghton, an officer in the army, who dying unmarried at Thurnham 
Hall, was buried in tlie old chapter house at Cockersand Abbey, the 
family burial-place of the Daltons, Dec. lo, 1712 (Gillow, Tyldesley 
Diary, p. 65) ; Dom Edward Hoghton, O.S.B., born at Park Hall, 
professed at St. I^aurence's Monastery at Dieulward in 1710, and died 
chaplain at Park Hall Aug. 26, 1751 ; and Robert Hoghton, who resided 
with his brother at Thurnham, was convicted of high treason in 1716 
for being out with the Chevalier de St. George in tlie previous year, and 
eventually died unmarried at Thurnham. The eldest son, John 
Hoghton-Dalton. was also "out" in 1715. and his estate was forfeited, 
but recovered before his death in 1736. He was the father of three 
sons and two daughters, viz.: John, who was taken to Douay College 
bv the Rev. Cuthbert Haydock Aug. 7, 1723, left Sept. 21, 1730, married 
Catherine, daughter of Henry Whittingham. of Whittingham Hall, Esq., 
and left two daughters and coheiresses, Frances, who died unmarried, 
and Mary, who married George Thornbrugh, of Selside Hall, co. West- 
morland, Esq.; WiUiam, who accompanied his brother to Douay, but 
left on account of ill-health in July, 1729. and died s.p.; Robert, the 
eventual heir to Thurnham, who was also taken to Douay by Mr. Hay- 
dock July 20, 1726, left June 5, 1733, married, first, in 1740, Cecilia, 
daughter of John Butler, of London, Esq. {Grimshaw MSS. apud me, 
vol. B. f. 646), secondlv, in 1753, Elizabeth, daughter and heiress of Mr. 
Dempsey, of Middle House, York, and, thirdly, Bridget, sister and co- 
heiress of Thomas :More, of Barnborough Hall, co. York, Esq., by all of 
whom he had issue as hereafter ; Frances, wife of Humphr>' Trafford, 
of Croston Hall, Esq.; and Elizabeth, spinster. Robert Dalton by his 
first wife had issue— John, of Thurnham Hall, born 1746, who married 
in 1774 Mar>', daughter of Sir I'homas Gage, of Hengrave, co. Suffolk, 
Bart., who died in 1819, leaving issue as hereafter ; William and Robert, 
who both died s.p.; Anne, a nun at Liege; Hilary, a nun at York; 
Frances, spr.; and Dorothy, wife of Edward Sulyard, of Haughley Park, 
CO. Suffolk, Esq. By his second wife Robert Dalton had issue — Robert 
and William, who both died s.p.; Jane, a nun at Liege ; and Elizabeth, 
who married Capt. Thomas Nayler, R.N., brother of Sir George Nayler, 
York Herald, and dying in 1817 was buried at Cockersand Abbey. 
And by his third wife Robert Dalton left issue — William Hoghton- 
Dalton, Esq., to whom his father devised Park Hall, the ancient seat 
of the Hoghtons. which he sold ; and Bridget Anne, who married Sir 
James Fitzgerald, of Castle Ishen, co. Cork, 7th Bart. John Dalton 
and Mary Gage had issue — John Dalton, only son, who married Mar\' 
Anne, daughter of Creorge Cary, of Torr Abbey, co. Devon, Esq., but 
died s.p. at Bath in 1819, whereupon his widow married secondly Sir 
John Hayford Thorold, of Marston, co. Lincoln, Bart., and thirdly 
Sir Charles Ogle, Bart.; Mary, who died unmarried in 1820 and was buried 
at Cockersand ; Lucy, wife of Joseph Bushell, of Preston and Myers- 
cough Cottage, Esq., who died s.p. in 1843, and her husband in i860 ; 
Elizabeth, who inherited Thurnham Hall, and died unmarried March 15, 
1 861, aged 81 ; and Bridget, who died unmarried in 1821. 

By some means the entail was temporarily broken in favour of the 
descendants of Miss Ehzabeth Dalton's half-aunt. Lady Fitzgerald, 
whose son Sir James Fitzgerald, 8th Bart., married in 1826 Augusta, 
daughter of Vice-Admiral Sir Thomas Fremantle, and sister of Sir 
Thomas Francis Fremantle, Bart. Sir James died in Miss Dalton's 
life-time in 1839, but was succeeded by his eldest son, Sir James George, 
as 9th Bart., born in 1831, who assumed the name of Dalton-Fitzgerald 


upon inheriting the Dalton estates in 1861. Upon liis death without 
issue, his brother, Sir Gerald Richard Dalton -Fitzgerald, born in 1838, 
became lotli Bairt., and succeeded to Thurnliain Hall, which had 
remained untenanted from the time of Miss Dalton 's (leath and so 
continued till Sir Gerald's death s.p. in February, 1894. 

As the hitherto unbroken Catholic history of Thurnhain now came to 
an end, it is important to revert to William Hoghton-Dalton, of Park 
Hall, whose son had been deprived of his rightful inheritance through 
some unhappy whim of IVIiss Dalton. It was probably owing to his 
marriage with a lady of apparently unequal rank, Louisa Smitli, by 
whom he had two sons, William Henry Dalton and Charles John Dalton, 
and three daughters, Elizabeth, ^Margaret, and Bridget. The fatlier, 
William Hoghton-Dalton, after liis sale of Park Hall which undoubtedly 
was an annoyance to his relatives, passed a long life in benevolence, 
" to the last marked by the quiet and unremitted observance of the 
duties of our holy religion " {Catholic Directory, 1839, p. io2j, and died 
Jan. 13, 1838, aged 74. His widow died at Hammersmith Dec. 13, 
1865, aged 80 [Catholic Directory, 1867, p. viii). Their eldest son, William 
Henry Dalton, who had been brought up a Protestant, or had lost the 
Faith of his ancestors whilst living abroad, upon the death of Sir G. R. 
Dalton-Fitzgerald, the loth Bart., set up his claim to the Dalton estates, 
and ultimately maintained it after carrying it to the Court of Appeal. 
He then settled at Thurnham Plall, died May 12, 1902, aged 67, and was 
succeeded by his eldest son, John Henry Dalton (Michael Jones, Mis- 
cellaneous Pedigrees MSS.; Twycross, Mansions of England and Wales, 
vol. ii, 21-4, with MS. notes by John Gage-Rohewode in copy formerly at 
Thurnham, apud me : Baines, Hist, of Lane: Visitations of Lane, 1613 
and 1664). 

Thurnham Hall throughout the days of persecution was a centre of 
Catholic activity, and within its walls a chapel was always maintained. 
It has been said that a subterranean passage communicated with Cocker- 
sand Abbey quite a mile and a half distance, but this no doubt was one 
of the usual Protestant legends attached to monastic ruins in the cases 
of neighbouring Catholic residences. The old chapel within the hall was 
replaced by a Gothic one adjoining the mansion by Miss Dalton. The 
mansion, situated on a slight eminence, was erected about the time of 
Queen Mary, when the estate came into the hands of the Dalton family, 
but it has undergone many alterations. It formerly possessed gables 
and projecting bays with fine mullioned windows, but in 1823 it was 
refronted and converted into the prevalent style of the period, the front 
being terminated on either side by a small turret, with a castellated para- 
pet. Over a projecting entrance leading to a noble hall were placed 
the arms of the Daltons impaling those of Gage. There was formerly 
a prevalent story in the neighbourhood about the fall of the key-stone 
over the old front door having been discovered one morning by the 
butler, who regarded it as a portend of disaster to the family. About 
this time was swept away the picturesque wall with bastions which had 
originally protected the mansion from the moat. This the writer remem- 
bers to have seen depicted in an ancient drawing. The inscribed stone 
of " The Seven Catholic Virgins " blocking one of the side upper windows 
was brought from Aldcliife Hall, probably when tliat estate was sold 
by the Riddells. 

In 1810 "a conventicle looking building " was erected as a public 
chapel at some little distance from the hall, which was superseded by 
the present church, furnished with a handsome spire, dedicated to 
SS. Thomas and Elizabeth, commenced in March, 1847, and consecrated 


by Bishop Brown, V.A.-L.D., on Aug. 29, 1848, from funds partly col- 
lected by the Rev. Thomas Crowe, but mainly contributed by Miss 
Elizabeth Dalton. 

Though the Daltons constantly appear in the recusant rolls and 
other records of the sufferings of Catholics from the earliest period, but 
little reference, and that comparatively late, has been found of the priests 
who served the secret chapel at Thurnham before the latter half of the 
seventeenth century. The first chaplain on record is — 

Rev. John North alias Lancaster, son of John North, of Docker Hall, 
CO. Lancaster, Esq., baptized at Whittington Aug. 11, 1602, who was 
received at Douay College as a convictor Oct. 22, 1622, was ordained 
priest at Arras April 5, 1631, and matriculated at the University of 
Douaj'- Jan. 22, 1632. He was then sent to the English College at Lisbon, 
and appointed prefect of studies. Subsequently he returned to England, 
and at first was stationed somewhere in Westmorland. He next appears 
as chaplain at Thurnham, and is notified as such by the Rev. Thomas 
Crowe in his History of Thurnham, towards the close of the seventeenth 
century, but it is more probable that the period was somewhat earlier 
(Douay Diayics, pp. 23, 44; C.R.S.,i, 115, xi ; Gillow, Reg. of Lisbon 
Coll., p. 235 ; Lane. Par. Reg. Soc, xxxi ; Foley, Records S.J., iii, 2). 
His successor at Thurnham was apparently — 

Rev. Henry Holden, son of Richard Holden, third son of Richard 
Holden, of Chaigley Manor, co. Lane, Esq., who, like his brother George, 
was an officer in the regiment of horse raised by Colonel Thomas Dalton 
and after the King's final overthrow went over to his uncle. Dr. Henry 
Holden, at Paris, and resolved to withdraw from the world. Thence 
he proceeded to Douay college, where he was admitted Jan. i, and be 
came an alumnus Dec. 29, 1649. He finished his philosophy in 1652, 
and in due course a few years later was ordained priest, and sent to the 
mission in his native county (Gillow, Biog. Did., iii, 338 ; Douay 
Diaries, pp. 46, 82 ; C.R.S., xi). He is met with at Thurnham in 1675, 
and so far as is known he had long been there as chaplain to the widow 
of his former colonel and their son Robert, and in that capacity he con- 
tinued till his death in the early part of 1688. His " Meditations upon 
the principall Obligations of a Christian Taken out of Holy Scripture, 
Councills, and Fathers." MS., 4to, pp. 177, is now, by the gift at 
Thurnham Hall of the late Sir Gerald R. Dalton-Fitzgerald, in the 
library of the writer. The next chaplain on record is — 

Rev. Thomas Taylor, son of John Taylor, of Park Hall in Quern- 
more, yeoman, whose administration of probate is dated 1685, was 
educated at the English College at Valladolid, where he was ordained 
priest Feb. 22, 1701, came to the mission in his native district, and was 
appointed chaplain to Robert Dalton at Thurnham Hall. In this 
capacity he served the chapel in the hall, and also those at Dolphin Lee in 
Bulk, Park Hall in Quernmore, Caton, and probably several missionary 
stations. Tyldesley, the diarist, frequently mentions him. On Sunday, 
Oct. 5, 1712, he writes : " Alday in house [at Lancaster] till eivening, 
when Mrs. and I went to young cos. Carus [Thomas Carus, then living 
in Lancaster, son and heir of Thomas Carus, of Halton Hall and West 
Hall in Whittington, Esq., who shortly afterwards apostatised and 
publicly went to the Protestant Church on Feb. 14, 1714] where I was 
to be Godfather [to Thomas Carus, who eventually sold the Halton Hall 
estate in 1743], and which was very remarkable, all the males in the house 
were Thomas", viz.: — ye Mr., y^ son, Mr. T. Tay^ [Rev. Thomas Taylor], 
Mr. T. Anderson, Mr. T. Backhouse, Tom T : [yldesley], and Tom Wliite, 
my man ; gave Mrs. Garswood 5s., the 2 mayds 2s. 6d. each, and affter 


a prety neet bouU off punch drinking, wee went home." Again, under 
March 30, 1714 — " Mr. Tay''dc Thurnhani, dined with us [at Lancaster]," 
and, under May H, 1714, " when din'' was don, went with Mrs. to Thurn- 
liam to see ISIadani Dalton, not well ; stay*" there till eivening ; Mr. 
Tayl^ Mr. Slicep", Cuddy Threlfall [of Tiie Ashes], and little Bryors 
[Thomas, of Preston, Esq.] there." Finally, the diarist records going 
to Aldcliltc Hall, another scat of the Daltons, on Sunday, June 6, 1714 — 
■' Went in the morning to Aldcliffe with Mrs., Do'' [Edward Hawarden, 
the chaplain to the Misses Dalton at the hall] and Mr. Tayl'' being both 

After the defeat of the Chevalier de St. George, the following return 
to the Conunissioners for Forfeited Estates, dated Oct. 16, 1716, was 
made by Thomas Nicholson, Higli Constable for the south side of the 
Hundred of Loynesdale, of " the estate of Mr. Dalton of Thurnham, s"* 
to be of the value of ;£i,ooo p an. — The estate of Mr. Hodgson of Leigh- 
ton, said to be of the value of £400 p an. — Tlie J<.epiitcd Popisli Priests 
are — Edw"! Cxilpin, comonly resichng at Robert Hail belonging to Sir 
Will. Gerard, Bart., in the township of Tatham— and Tho. Taylor 
formerly living with the afores"* Mr. Dalton & is thought to have made 
his escape from the Battle of Preston " {Forfeited Estate Papers, P.R.O., 
L. 2). John PToghton-Dalton, of Tlnirnhani, Esq., in anotlicr return 
{ibid., L. 3), dated Aug. 29, 1716, was put down in a list of " Traytors 
convicted or outlawed cotam'''^," as possessed of real estate at Cocker- 
ham, Thurnham, Quernmore, Lancaster, Heaton, Charnock, and 
Ditton, computed at the yearly value of ^1,300, ]\Ir. Beni.son being his 
attorney, Moslej- his steward for Thurnham estates, and R<jbert ffoster 
and John ffelton his stewards for Park Hall estate in Charnock Ricliard. 

Mr. Taylor's subsequent career has not been ascertained. His 
mother Mary, who had remarried John Walmsley who died in 1707, 
registered as a Catholic non-juror in 171 7, and then a widow residing at 
Park Hall in Quernmore, a leasehold under the Right Hon. Hugh, Lord 
Clifford, in possession of her son Richard Taylor, and also mentions 
her son Thomas Taylor. Her daughter Winifi-ed was the wife of 
Robert Ball, yeoman, of Dolphin Lee within Bulk, held under Robert 
Dalton, Esq. It seems probable that Mr. Taylor continued to serve 
Thurnham, Dolphin Lee, Caton, and Park Hall for some time longer. His 
name does not appear in Bishop Dicconson's list of his clergy in 1741. 
Perhaps he is identical with the Thomas Taylor described as of Caton, 
whose will was proved in 1731 {Lancashire and Cheshire Record Society, 
xiii). Meanwhile, Thurnham for a time was served b}- — 

Rev. James Gaunt, who came from Mowbreck Hall {C.R.S., xv, 151, 
222, 315-7 ; xvi, 516), and appeal's in the account of Bishop Williams' 
Visitation in the beginning of 1729 under Thurnham, the seat of Squire 
Dalton, when his lordship confirmed 135 persons, Mr. Gaunt and the 
Rev. John Swarbrick, of Crow Hall {C.R.S., xv, 317), being present on 
the occasion. 

Meanwhile, Thurnham was apparently served by the riding-priests 
who attended to Nateby Hall, the seat of the Lcyburnes, Bowers House, 
the seat of the Greenes, Dimples Hall, the scat of the Plessingtons, and 
other missionary stations generally known as the Wyresdale or (".arstang 
mission, as related C.R.S., xvi, 516-7. Amongst these priests were- — 

Rev. William Calvert, of the local family of Calvert of Cockerliam 
Hall, till his death in 1735 — 

Rev. William Foster alias Daniel, who in or shortly after 1741 was 
appointed chaplain to Robert Dalton, of Thurnham Hall, and is tliere 
stated to be residing in April, 1743, when he was appointed a trustee 


to Stephenson's Charities (p. 21). On account of tlie dangerous state 
of the times owing to the raid of Prince Charlie in 1745, Mr. Foster had 
to leave Thurnham. and in his stead one " Edward Parkinson " is 
entered by Bishop Dicconson in the list of the clergy of his vicariate, 
but without the usual reference to the college whence he came, and is 
tlien erased. As no secular priest of this name, who could have been 
living at this period, is to be found in the registers of Rome, Douay, 
Lisbon, or ^"alladolid, and as immediately afterwards the Bishop enters 
amongst the list of Jesuits the appointment, urder date Sept. 3, 1745, 
to Thurnham of — 

Fr. Edward Cartaret, S.J., it is almost certain that the Bishop's 
first entry was erroneous, especiall}- as Fr. Cartaret appears to have 
passed under several aliases, and that he is elsewhere asserted to have 
succeeded Mr. Foster. Edward and his younger brother Philip Car- 
taret both joined the Society, and another member of the family was 
Dom Francis Joseph Cartaret, O.S.B. In consequence of their religious 
character they seem to have been out of favour with the head of the 
family, Lord Cartaret of Hawnes, co. Bedford, and no mention of them 
appears in Burke's Extinct Peerage (p. 113) and Baronetcies (p. 103). 
Both Edward and Philip arc family names. Edward, born in London 
June 26. 1689 or 1691, according to Bro. Foley {Records S.J., vii, 119), 
entered the Society Sept. 7, 1709, under the alias of Fairfax. After his 
ordination he was appointed missioner at Stonyhurst, the ancestral 
seat of the Sherburnes, and was there in 1724 and later years. He was 
appointed chaplain to Robert Dalton at Thurnham Hall, as previously 
related in 1745, and according to Bishop Dicconson was .still there in 
1752. He must have withdrawn to Wigan about this date, for he died 
in Standish-gate, and was buried at Wigan parish church June 16, 1753. 
Bishop Gradwell, in his notes appended to Kirk's Biographies (p. 271), 
seems to question if Fr. Cartaret was not the real heir to the Barony of 
Cartaret. Thurnham was then served by — 

Rev. John Serjeant, from Scorton {C.R.S., xvi, 517-8), until the 
arrival of — 

Fr. Christopher More, S.J., whose sister Bridget, daughter of Thomas 
More, of Barnborough Hall, co. York, Esq., and eventual heiress of the 
j\Iore family, had married Robert Dalton as his tliird wife, and in conse- 
quence Fr. ]More was invited to accept the chaplaincy at Thurnham 
Hall in or about 1767. Fr. More, whose elder brother, Fr. Thomas 
More, S.J., was the last male representative of the blessed martyr. 
Sir Thomas More, lord high chancellor of England, was born at Barn- 
borough or Barnbow Hall May 10, 1729, entered the Society of Jesus 
Sept. 7, 1746, and was ordained priest at Liege in 1754. For a number 
of years he served in Lancashire, until he accompanied the Daltons to 
Bath in 1774, and died there in the house of his brother-in-law^ Robert 
Dalton, Nov. 27, 1781 (Foley, Records S.J., v, 703 ; vii, 517). Mean- 
while, during the years that the Daltons resided at Bath, the hall was 
closed at Thurnham, which was again served by — 

Rev. John Serjeant from Scorton till the arrival of — 

Rev. Robert Banister (Gillow, Biog. Diet., i, 123), who left Douay 
College Aug. 15, 1769, and came to England, served Ladywell, Ferny- 
halgh, and then was appointed chaplain to the Dicconsons at Wrighting- 
ton Hall. On Oct. 28, 1773, he resumed his professorship at Douay, 
but left the college finally on June 3, 1774 {Douay Lists MS.), when for 
a short time he took charge of Thurnham Hall mission in succession to 
Fr. More. Shortly afterwards he removed to Mowbreck Hall {C.R.S., 
XV, 223-4). He was succeeded by — 


Rev. James Foster, son of James Foster, and his wife Emerentia 
Heys, the tenant farmer of Ashton Hall, near Lancaster, under the Duke 
of Hamilton and Brandon, where lie was born Feb. 14, 1747, N.S. 
After being at the school at Lady well, Fcrnyhalgh, lie was sent to Douay 
College in Sei^lcmber, 1764, but on account of liis healtli left the college 
in syntax Dec. 12, 1767, till the following Sept. 26, i 7O8, but witlunit 
being turned back. He took the oath of the alumni ]March 30, 1771. 
Having been ordained priest, he left the college for the mission in his 
4th year's theology, June 5, 1773 {Douay Lists MS.). His first apjjoint- 
ment was as chaplain to Sir Walter Vavasour, Bart., at Haslewood Castle, 
CO. York, which he retained for about three jears. He then removed to 
Burton Constable, where he remained for about seven years, and then 
was transferred to Thurnham Hall. Meanwhile, the Rev. John Serjeant 
is again found serving Thurnham from Scorton on Feb. 3, 17S3, when tlie 
vicar-general, the Rev. John Chadwick, wrote to Bishop Matthew Gibson 
at Headlam, near Darlington {Ushaiv Collections, MSS., ii, 491). On 
Sept. 16, 1784, Mr. Foster was chaplain at Thurnham, residing in the 
hall, when Bishop Matthew Gibson, V.A-N.D., made his visitation, 
and gave confirmation to three persons, the communicants in the congre- 
gation being returned to his lordship as ninety (Bishop M. Gibson's 
Itinerary MS.). In September, 1783, he commenced the register. In 
1802 he built the priest's house called VVoodside, and in 1810 he erected 
a chapel — the conventicle-looking building — for which he liad long 
collected subscriptions, as evidenced by an entry under date Sept. 8, 
1803, in the " Records of the Catholic Brethren or First Catholic Cliarit- 
ablc Society, Preston." Thus he continued till his death, Feb. 17, 
1824, aged 77. His portrait is at Thurnham (Crowe, Hist, of Thurnham) . 
His successor was — 

Rev. Thomas Crowe, son of JoJm Crowe, and his wife Mary Rothwell, 
of the Fylde, married at Lytham in 1787 {C.R.S., xvi, 511), who was 
born in the vicinity of Liverpool, where his father had settled. After 
a preliminary education in Preston, he was sent to Sedgley Park School 
in 1 80 1 {Reg. MS.), and subsequently at a more advanced age than 
usual to Ushaw College, where he was ordained priest. His first mission 
was at Croston Hall, the seat of the TrafEords, and thence, as occasion 
required, he went to assist Mr. F'oster at Thurnham, spending five to 
six months with him in the years 182 1 and 1822. After Mr. Foster's 
death in 1824, Mr. Crowe was appointed his successor at Thurnham. 
He commenced to erect a new church in I\Iarch, 1847, towards which he 
collected £1,000, and the remainder of the cost was defrayed by Miss 
Elizabeth Dalton, of Thurnham Hall. In July, 1S4S, just before the 
opening ceremony and consecration by Bishop Brown, V.A-L.D., 
Aug. 29, 1848, Mr. Crowe — owing to some difierence with Miss Dalton 
and her private chaplain, Mr. Shepherd — resigned his mission (Gillow, 
Biog. Diet., i, 603), and took charge of that at Darlington, co. Durham, 
till 1849. Thence lie was transferred to Puddington, Cheshire, 1849-51, 
and finally in the latter year was given charge of Formby, where he died 
Aug. 21, 1862, He privately printed the Brief History of the Mission 
of Thurnham, Preston, Evan Caunce Buller, 1861, 8vo, pp. 32, after 
I\iiss Dalton's death in that year, which has been used in the above 
account. His successor at Thurnham was Miss Dalton's private chap- 
lain — 

Rev. James Shepherd, born in Liverpool in 1814, who prosecuted his 
studies at the Benedictine College at Amplefortli, and as a student 
formed one of that body of seceders who accompanied Bishop Baines 
to establish the college of Prior Park. He was ordained in 1839, and 


remained at the college till its prospects warned him to seek another 
sphere of activity. After a brief retirement he became private chaplain 
to Miss Dalton at Thurnham Hall, and received his appointment from 
the Bishop to the mission upon Mr. Crowe's enforced resignation in 
July, 1848, immediately before the opening of the new churcli. In this 
position he continued till December, 1S52, when, according to the 
Directory, he withdrew to his old college at Amplefortli, and there resided 
till 1S55, when he returned to Thurnham as domestic chaplain to ^Nliss 
Dalton. Upon the latter's death in 1861, at the age of 8r, the personalty, 
amounting to a large sum, under that lady's will, was mainly bequeathed 
to her lady-housekeeper, Miss English, whilst Mr. Shepherd obtained a 
handsome sum, which occasioned much local feeling. He then withdrew 
to St. Scholastica's Abbey at Teignmouth, where he resided till 1880. 
In that year he took up his residence in Bath, and in 18S4 settled at 
London. In 1888 he returned to Prior Park for a short time, and in the 
following year received the dignity of a domestic prelate. Miss English 
being created a Roman countess. He then returned to St. Scholastica's 
Abbey. In iSgo he went to Clevedon, and in 1891 he finally withdrew 
to Prior Park, where he died April 22, 1896, aged S},. He published 
several works, one of them being " Reminiscences of Prior Park College," 
first published in 1886, which was far from being acceptable to the Bene- 
dictines at Ampleforth, though they did not publish anything in refuta- 
tion till a much later period (Gillow, Biog. Diet., v, 501 ; Crowe, Hist, 
of Thuynham). Upon his departure from Thurnham, the contents of 
the hall were sold, the private chapel adjoining dismantled, and the 
mansion left untenanted and allowed to decay until the late ^Ir. Dalton 
established his right to the estates. Mgr. Shepherd was succeeded at 
Thurnham by- 
Rev. William Bail, of the Dolphin Lee family, who came in December, 
1852, and remained till July, 1857. His memoir has been given under 
Westby, C.R.S., xv, 7. He was succeeded by — 

Rev. James Swarbrick, who has been noticed under Mowbreck, 
C.R.S., xvi, 227. He retired in the autumn of 1889, but was eventually 
interred at Thurnham in 1898. During his term he was assisted by — the 
Revv. George Dobson, 186S-9, Alfred Walmsley 188 1-5, and Edward 
L. Smith 1885-9. The first was the only child of John Dobson, of Friar- 
gate, Preston, butcher, and was sent to Sedgley Park in 1853, whence 
he proceeded to Ushaw in 1855. At the latter he was ordained priest 
Oct. 25, 1868, and commenced his missionary career as curate to 'Mr. 
Swarbrick. Thence he was sent as assistant at Claughton, 1S69-71, 
after which he was placed in Liverpool, where he remained till his 
appointment to Douglas, in the Isle of Man, in 1874. In 1S80 he was 
removed to Catforth, Preston, till 1S85 ; Everton, 18S5-7 ; and he was 
on sick leave 18S7-8. Owing to differences over private funds which 
he had expended on one of his missions, which the bishop refused to 
return to him, he withdrew from the diocese of Liverpool to that of 
Nottingham, and was placed at Hathersage, Derbyshire, in 1888. He 
was made canon and vicar -general in 1900, and remained at Hathersage 
tUl shortly before his death at Boumemoutli Oct. 5, 1906, aged 64. 
His father had left him fairly well off, and his part investment of this 
money was the cause of the disagreement with his bishop. After Mr. 
Swarbrick's withdrawal from Thurnham, the mission was given to — 
The Very Rev. Canon Richard Newman Billington, who left in 1894 
for St. Peter's, Lancaster. He was followed by — 
Rev. Thomas Keeley, 1894-6, and 
Rev. Patrick Byrne, 1896 to date. Joseph gillow.

and sometimes as in case of Jeremiah Walmsley, P. 2. B. [paid 2 breadths]. 
This signifies a breadth of ground was paid for. 

On page 30 there is an account of work done in June and July, 1843. 
Shifting rails and peling and faling (?) larch, 7 days and 2 men on most ;

The village of Scorton is situated in the township of Nether Wyres- 
dale, three miles north-north-east of Garstang, to which parish it belongs. 
The manor of Nether Wyresdale formerly belonged to the Rigmaydens 
of Wcdacre Hall, from whom, mainly owing to the family's staunch 
adherence to the old Faith, their manor of Garstang, held under suit 
and service to the Abbey of Cockersand, was assigned by the adminis- 
trators of Walter Rigmayden temp. Elizabeth, Feb. lo, 1602-3, to Sir 
Thomas Gerard, of Gerard's Bromley, co. Stafford, a favourite of tlie 
Queen, who was advanced to the peerage on the following July 21st. 
Walter Rigmayden was a particularly staunch recusant, and hence was 
declared a lunatic in 1586, although he was still made to pay his lines for 
his contumacy so late as the 38th Elizabeth, 1595-6. His wife, Anne, 
daughter of Edward Tyldesley, of Morleys Hall in Tyldesley, and The 
Lodge in Mycrscough, who was equally staunch, regularly appears in 
the rolls, and otherwise is found in the records of sufferers for the Faith. 
Several of their children died before their parents ; but one, John 
Rigmayden, of Wedacre Hall, appears in the recusant rolls from 1591 
to 1604, and later is described as of Garstang, and finally of Nether 
Wyresdale between 1607 and 1633, where the family continued till late 
in the seventeenth century, and of whom two became Benedictine 

Other houses in which priests found shelter were — 

Ellel Grange, 
in the parish of Cockerham, four miles south of Lancaster, the seat of 
the Prestons, a junior branch of the Px-estons of Furness, who retained 
the Faith and resided there till about the commencement of the eighteenth 
century. Christopher Preston, of Ellcl, gent., was on the recusant rolls 
in and about 16S1, and died in 1689. The Grange was subsequently 
occupied by the Rigbys, passed by purchase to the Worswicks, of 
Lancaster and Leighton Hall, and was then occupied by the Gillows, who 
removed thence to Leighton. 

Cockerlimn Hall, 
seven miles south of Lancaster, formerly belonged to the Abbey of 
Frees, co. Leicester, and before tlic Dissolution tlie manor and rectory 
were farmed by John Calverley, or Calvert, fourth son of Sir William 
Calverley, of Calverley, co. York, and was retained by his descendants, 
adherents of the ancient Faith. Fr. Cliarles Calvert f^/Zas Baines, S.J., 
son of Richard Calvert, of Cockerham Hall, Esq., was christened at 
Cockerham, June 6, 1620, and died at Rome July 30, 1657. His sister 
Dorothy became a Benedictine nun at Pontoise. On Oct. 24, 1654, 


the manor was mortgaged by John Calvert and his trustees to the trus- 
tees of Maurice Tompson, Esq., whose son was created Baron Havcrsham, 
to whom it was later assigned. Afterwards it was occupied by the 
Frosts. Administration to the estate of W'alter Frost, of Cockerham 
Hall, was granted in 1670, and his son or namesake, Walter Frost, of 
Cockerham Hall, Esq., was a great friend of Tyldesley, the Diarist, who 
calls him " Bro'' ffx^ost," and frequently visited him at Cockerham. He 
records under date Oct. 21, 1712, meeting his wife and two daughters 
at Cockerham Hall " to see Sis"' Frost, very ill ; stay<» halfe an hour " , 
on June 3, 1713, the diarist relates how he went with his wife to Myers- 
cough Lodge, " but as soon as wee got thither we hard off Bro'' ffrost 
death, Sunday night about 12 beffor, w" made us not stay, but post to 
Cockerham ; but he was burj^ed the night beffor, his phi^^icke not per- 
miting him to keep. Wee stay'' an hower witli y*" ladys." Walter 
Frost died May 31, 171 3. It is doubtful if he became a Catholic. He 
presented the Rev. John Winter to the vicarage of Cockerham in 1695, 
and though the claim to presentation was disputed by Lord Haversham, 
it was maintained. In the previous year, 1694, he was impanelled one 
of the Grand Jury to try the Catholic gentlemen implicated in the 
supposed Lancashire Plot. After his death the manor of Cockerham 
passed to Francis Charteris, of Hornby Castle, Esq. 

Calvert Nook, 
in Forton, parish of Cockerham, was the seat of a junior branch of the 
Calverts, who also owned an estate in Yorkshire. The first to reside 
here was Thomas Calvert, a younger son of Thomas Calvert, of Cocker- 
ham Hall, Esq., by Isabel, daughter of William Kirkby, of Upper 
Rawcliffe Hall, Esq. He was succeeded by his son William, whose will, 
in the writer's possession, dated Sept. 30, was proved Nov. 20, 1657. 
The will of the latter's elder son, Thomas [apudme), was made on April 14, 
and proved Aug. 6, 167S. He had sons William, whose will {apud me), 
dated Feb. 24, 1683, was proved the same year, and Philip. William 
had a son and heir, Thomas, who died s.p. in 1703, and was succeeded 
by his great uncle, John Calvert, wlio left a daughter and heiress, Eliza- 
beth, who married Mr. Lucas, and was living a widow in 1710. The 
estate then passed to James Smith, whose son William married Ann, 
daughter of Robert Haydock, of Leach Hall, in Woodplumpton, and his 
son James Smith maiTied Elizabeth, daughter and eventual heiress of 
Robert Walker, of Forton, by Margaret, daughter of William Hathorn- 
thwaite, of Catshaw Hall, gent. James died June 29, 1765, and was 
succeeded by his son William Smith, of Forton, gent., who, dying a 
bachelor, devised his estates to his cousins, William Smith, of Clock 
House, Lea, gent., and Thomas Smith, of Elswick Grange, gent., though 
his sister Margaret had married George Blanchard, of Alston, gent., and 
had issue three children, James Blanchard, of Grimsargh House and 
Alston, Esq., whose wife was Anne Teresa, daughter of Richard Butler, 
of Pleasinglon Hall, Esq.; Elizabeth, wife of Evan Richard Gerard, of 
Gerard's Hall, in Haighton, Esq.: and Anne, wife of James Sidgreaves, 
of Inglewhite Lodge, Esq. The house possessed a chapel, occasionally 
used as a missionary station, and the writer remembers certain articles 
of altar-furniture, consisting of a portable altar and a small altar-piece 
representing the crucifixion, by an Italian painter, with ancient seal, 
affixed at the back. The estate was sold by the late Joseph Gillow, Esq., 
after the death in 183 1 of William Smith, of Clock House and Forton, 
who married Jane, daughter and coheiress of Robert Haydock, of Leach 
Hall, the representative of the Haydocks of Cottam Hall. 


Catshaiv Hall, 
one C)f the twelve vaccarics of Over Wyresdale, in the parish of Lancaster, 
was the seat of the Hathoruthwaites, who derived from the neighbouring 
vaccary of Hathornthwaitc, and during their occupation was a mission- 
ary station. WilHam Hathornthwaite, gent., of Catsliaw Hall, in the 
forest of Wyresdale, married Ellen, eldest daughter and ultimate co- 
heiress of Richard Blackburnc, of Stockenbridgc Hall, gent., and his 
only son, John Hathornthwaitc, d5'ing unmarried (will dated Nov. 26, 
1753), the estates passed to his sisters and coheiresses — Margaret, wife 
of Robert Walker, of Forton ; Agnes, wife of William Caton, of Can- 
House in Cabus ; Mary, wife of Richard Leckonby, of Lcckonby House, 
(Ireat Eccleston ; Jane, wife of Mr. Crook ; Elizabeth, wife of Mr. 
Alston ; Sarah, spinster, of Garstang ; and anotlier daughter, wife of 
Henry J<oc, of Backliouses, in the parisli of Cockerham, who became the 
mother of the Rev. John Roe, of Black ladies, co. Stafford. Catsliaw and 
demesne passed to the Leckonbys, and was sold early in the nineteenth 
centur\' by Col. T. H. Helc-Phipps, of Leighton House, co. Wilts., J. P. 
and D.L., High Sheriff of Wilts, in 1804, who hail married the heiress 
of the Leckonbys. 

Clifton Hill, 

in Forton, in the parish of Cockerham, seven miles soutli of Lancaster, 
a handsome mansion erected by Robert Gillow, Escp, towards the close 
of the eighteenth century, was occupied by the family till the death in 
Paris of Miss Sarah Anne Gillow during the siege of the city, Dec. 8, 
1871. It then passed to her nephews the Dunns, and after the death of 
Mr. James Fitzherbert-Brockholes, of Claughton Hall, was purchased by 
his widow, and occupied by that lady and her mother. Lady Stanley. 
There was always a chapel in the hall, but between 1878 and June, 1880, 
Mrs. Fitzherbert-Brockholes erected a small church, dedicated to SS. 
Catherine and Barbara, to accommodate about a liundred people. The 
mission lias been served by the following priests : — Re\'. Edwartl Swar- 
brick, 1878-85 ; Rev. Alfred Walmsley, 1883-9 ; Rev. John Crilly, 
1889-91 ; Rev. Richard Barton, 1891-1901 ; Rev. Patrick J. Delany, 
1901 to date. 

Scorton Hall, 

in the township of Netlier Wyresdale, some three miles north-north-east 
of Garstang, in which parish it is situated, became the property of the 
Catholic family of Blackburne in the seventeenth century. The hall, 
a fairly large building, now divided into two dwellings, is situated on 
slightly elevated ground above the present old cotton mill in the village. 
It is thought to have been erected in the early part of the seventeenth 
century during the residence of Richard Blackburne, eldest son of Wil- 
liam Blackburnc, of Thistleton, by Elizabeth, daughter of William 
Kytchin, of Forton (Fislnvick, Hist, of Garstang, p. 257). He married 
Jane, daughter of William Aynesworth, of Newton, and, having suc- 
ceeded his father to Thistleton, hnally settled in Newton. From him 
descended the Blackburnes of Stockenbridge Hall and Newton-upon- 
Scales, the two families of The Hill and Tlie Brooks in (loosnargh, and 
the Blackburnes of Orford, Newton, and liale, lords of the manor of 
Warrington, who abandoned the Faith of their ancestors and became 
more notable and influential than tlie Catholic branches of the family. 
Scorton Hall descended to Richard Blackburne's grandson and namesalcc, 
who also resided at Stockenbridge Hall. His will, dated from Scorton, 
Sept. 10, 1686, was proved in the same year, and his grandson and name- 
sake, the last of the Stockenbridge Blackburnes, died in 1 726. The latter, 


by his wife Mary, daughter and eventual coheiress of Laurence Livesey, 
of Livesey Hall in Sutton, gent., left four daughters and coheiresses, of 
whom the eldest, as related under Catshaw Hall, became the wife of 
William Hathornthwaite . 

Robert Blackburne, fifth son of Richard Blackburne: of Scorton 
Hall and Thistleton. married Elizabeth, daughter of Ralph Longworth, 
of Tarniker Hall, subsequently known as St. Michael's Hall, Esq., and 
his son Richard married Perpetua, daughter of Francis Westby, of 
Myerscough, Esq. The lattcr's eldest son, Robert Blackburne, of 
Thistleton and Newton, gent., was apprehended on suspicion of being a 
party to the so-called Lancashire Jacobite Plot of 1694, and though 
never brought to trial, he was immured in Newgate for over fifty-three 
years, and died within its walls (Gillow, Biog. Diet., i, 223 ; Life of 
Bernardi, pp. 93 seq., 108 seq.) The Jacobite's nephew Richard resided 
at Scorton and Mawdesley, and married Margaret, daughter of Richard 
Nelson, of ISIawdesley, gent., who, as a widow, resided at Scorton, and 
by will dated Jan. 15, 1718, proved 1720, left, besides a bequest to the 
poor of Mawdesley, a sum of /50 to the poor of Nether Wyresdale to be 
distributed according to the direction of John Hathornthwaite, of Cat- 
shaw Hall. This sum was, of course, intended exclusively for the Catho- 
lics of Wyresdale, but was seized by the Commissioners and incorporated 
in the "Lancashire Charities." This is apparently the last connection 
of the Blackbumes with Scorton. 

in Nether W^Tesdale, in the parish of Garstang, was a property belonging 
to the Jenkinsons, an old Catholic family of yeomen long resident there 
and at various places in Ellel, Bolton-le-Sands, Aldcliffe, and the sur- 
rounding district. One of the family, the Rev. Christopher Jenkinson, 
resided at Brackenlea till his death in 1723. He had a small chapel in 
the house, whence he served Garstang. It was probably after his death 
that Mass was said at Foxhouses, about a mile and a half from Scorton, 
on the north side, where in one of the dwellings there was formerly a 
priest's hiding-place. The Re\'. William Calvert and Re\'. William 
Foster seem to have followed Mr. Jenkinson, and in turn were succeeded 
by the Rev. Edward Daniel, who fled to the Continent after the Jacobite 
rising of 1743. The charge of the mission, which still included Garstang, 
was then given to the Rev. John Serjeant, who removed its seat from 
Foxhouses to — 

in proximity to the old hall, in a small, rude, thatched building used as a 
clog-maker's shop on week-days and for Mass on Sundays. Mr. Ser- 
jeant possessed means, his father being a yeoman of substance in the 
neighbouring township of Ellel, in the parish of Cockerham, and owning 
lands in Wyresdale and elsewhere. Eventually, when the times had 
become easier for Catholics, he replaced the original building at Scorton 
by one entirely set apart for religious purposes, combining a small 
thatched chapel with priest's house. The chapel was subsequently 
enlarged, improved, and slated. It belonged to the Duke of Hamilton, 
being parcel of his manor of Garstang, and when one of the later holders 
of the title was presented to the Pope at the Vatican, his Grace told his 
Holiness that he bcHeved he was the only Protestant nobleman in the 
kingdom to own a CcthoHc church. When his Grace disposed of his 
Lancashire property he allowed a small portion, together with the chapel 
site, to be sold on very liberal terms to the incumbent, the Rev. Robert 
Turpin (Hewitson, Our Coimtry Churches and Chapels, pp. 520 seq.).

The following is a record of the missionaries serving the mis-ion so 
far as can be ascertained — 

Rev. Christopher Jenkinson, son of Richard Jenkinson, of Bracken- 
lea, gent., who died in 1700, was admitted into the English College at 
Lisbon IMay 20, 1693, became an alumnus Dec. 21, 1701, taught classics 
for some time, was ordained priest, and was appointed procurator 
Sept. 22, 1711. He was sent to England June 12, 171 1, and settled 
at his late father's house at Brackenlea, whence he attended to the Catho- 
lics of Nether Wyresdale, Garstang, and district. He also occasionally 
served Nateby Hall, the seat of the Leyburnes, and perhaps at Foxliouses 
in Scorton. He continued to attend the mission till his death Sept. 2, 
1723, much respected and regretted by his flock (Gillow, Re^. of Lisbon 
College, p. 220) . He was succeeded by — 

Rev. William Calvert, a member of the family of Calvert of Cocker- 
ham Hall, and possibly a brother of Richard Calvert, of Cockerham (son 
of Thomas Cahert), whose will was proved at Somerset House in April, 
1725, with letters of administration at Richmond in the same year. After 
a course of seven years' study at the English College at Valladolid, he 
was ordained priest March 26, 1692, and came to the mission in Lan- 
cashire {Valladolid Diary MS.). He served Nateby Hall, Thurnhani 
Hall, and other places in the district (C.R.S., xvi, 517). After the 
death of j\Ir. Jenkinson, lie also took charge of the Wyresdale and Gar- 
stang mission till his death July 14, 1735 {Old Chapter Records MSS.). 
His will, dated from Wyresdale, was proved at Richmond in 1735 
{Lave, and Cheshire Record Society, xiii, 50; and vide under Thurnham). 
His successor was — 

Rev. William Foster, born 1707, son of Robert Foster, of Charnock 
Richard, a well-to-do tanner, connected with the TootelJs, Daniels, and 
other good Catholic families (Payne, Cath. Nonjurors, p. 12S, and 
original MS. in Record Office), was sent to Douay College, where he 
became an alummis Alay 26, 1725, at the age of 18, being then in rhetoric 
{Douay Diaries, p. 58), received minor orders and the subdiaconate 
March 27, 1728, the diaconate April 2, 1729, and was ordained priest 
in November, 1730. He commenced the scholastic year on Oct. i, 
1731, as prefect general, an office which he retained till Oct. i, 1734, 
when he became confessor-ordinarj- and prefect of the library, etc., 
till he left the college for the mission Sept. 11, 1736 {Prefect's Lists, 
MS.) He came straight to the Wyresdale and Garstang mission, which 

sf: He was a relative of William Caton, of Carr House in Cabus, parish of 
Garstang, geiit., whose will dated Nov. g, 1750, was proved Dec. 28, 1751. 

"fi Domina Alice Taylor, of Claughlon, .spr., dau. of Richard Taylor, of 
(ircat Eccleston, gent., by Anne, dau. of John Blackburne, of Stockenbridge, 
Esq. She or her mother would be the donor of the chalice marked A.T., the 
other, inscribed N.B., possibly standing for Nicholas Butler, as Elizabeth, 
dau. and heiress of Mr. Charnley, of Scorton Park, gent., married Richard 
Butler, a relative of Nicholas, and younger son of Richard Butler, of Rawclifli' 
Hall, lisq., by Ivath., dau. of Thomas Carus, of Halton Hall, Esq., and sub- 
sequently resided at Scorton Park. Mrs. Butler, of Scorton, is alluded to in 
the Tyldesley Diary (pp. 55, 64, 71) in 1712-3. 


meanwhile after Mr. Calvert's death had been served from neiglibouring 
missions. Some time before April, 1743. when lie was appointed a 
trustee of Stephenson's Charifies (p. 21), he was also in charge of the 
Thurnham Hall mission. After the Jacobite rising of 1745, Mr. Foster 
had to seek refuge elsewhere, and on Sept. 3 of that year Fr. Edward 
C'artaret, S.J., was appointed his successor at Thurnham. He then 
disappears from Bishop Dicconson's lists of clergy and reg\dars in the 
northern vicariate, but in an Old Chapter MS. he is stated to have died 
at York some time between Sept. 27, 1754, and April 16, 1755, aged 47. 
(vide C.R.S., xvi, 517, wliich amend). After his departure there is a 
question of a temporary appointment to Wyresdale, as follows — 

Rev. Richard Walmesley. In a note by Bishop Gradwell in Dr. 
John Kirk's Collectanea Anglo-Caiholica, vol. iii {Biographies, p. 271), 
a priest of the name of " Walmesley " is placed at Scorton between 
Foster and Daniel. Though no such appointment appears in Bishop 
Dicconson's List, it is quite possible that the Rev. Richard Walmesley — 
the only priest of the surname at this period- — -supplied the Wyresdale 
mission for a brief period. Born Dec 14, 1709, he was the eldest son of 
Thomas Walmesley, of Showley Hall, co. Lancaster, Esq., and his wife 
Mary, daughter of William Colegrave, of London, Esq. Upon entering 
the English College at Valladolid, he assumed his maternal name of 
Colegrave, took the missionary oath Jan. 22, 1727, was ordained priest 
April 12, 1733, and having finished his course of theology left the college 
for the English mission [Valladolid Diary MS.). He was placed at 
Burscough Hall, near Ormskirk, which he served till 174T. If he served 
Wyresdale, it would be about this time. He was in a delicate state, 
and went to Showley Hall, his father's house, and probably assisted the 
chaplain, the Rev. Charles Ingleby, prior to his death in 1743, and there 
died April 25,1 744, at the age of 34. The next priest at Wyresdale w£is — 

Rev. Edward Daniel alias Bennet, whose memoir has been given 
under Garstang {C.R.S., xvi, 517), who resigned the Molyneux chaplaincy 
at Mosborough Hall and The Wood for the mission at Wyresdale, 
Garstang, Nateby Hall, and vicinity. During the march of Prince 
Charlie from Lancaster to Preston in 1745, Mr. Daniel, following tlie 
footsteps of his father, identified himself too closely with the Jacobite 
cause, and, in consequence, had to leave his mission and seek safety 
on the Continent (Gillow, Biog. Diet., ii). His subsequent career till 
his death at York in 1765 has already been related. His successor in 
the Wyresdale district was — 

Rev. John Serjeant, born Jan. 3, 1714-5. whose memoir has been given 
in C.R.S., xvi, 517-8, came from Douay to his paternal home at Ellel 
in 1745, and after the defeat of Prince Charlie was arrested and com- 
mitted to Lancaster Castle. Upon liberation he w^as appointed to the 
charge of the Wyresdale, Garstang, and district mission, and occasionally 
served Thurnham. In 1767 in the return made to the Bishop of Chester 
by the vicar of Cockerham, John Sergeant was said to be the resident 
priest at Wyresdale, with 57 Catholics at Cockerham, 40 at Ellel, and 
blank at Shirehead {Lane. Catholics, p. 8). Notwithstanding, Mr. 
Serjeant is put down in Bishop Dicconson's list as of Scorton before 1752, 
and it is most probable that he established the chapel there upon his 
appointment to the mission, though he may have resided in Wyresdale. 
In June, 1774, Bishop William Walton gave 90 confirmations at Scorton, 
and in 1783 Mr. Serjeant was also serving Thurnham, the joint congre- 
gations consisting of four hundred communicants. On Sept. 16, 1784, 
Bishop Matthew Gibson confirmed 1 15 at Scorton, Mr. Serjeant returning 
his communicants at 310. 


In 1753 >rr. Serjeant had a controversy with the vicar of Garstang, 
and he also published a work, entitled : " The Pope and Turk." The 
times in whicli he lived were troublesome, if not so dangerous as previ- 
ously, but he always managed to overcome his difficulties with ease and 
credit. A memorandum amongst the records of the mission states that 
on one occasion, at the suggestion of a certain toll-keeper, soldiers or 
pursuivants were sent to apprehend him as amenable to the penal code, 
but these nien were so struck with his kind and hospitable reception that 
they left him without executing their errand (Hewitson, Our Country 
Churches and Chapels, p. 522). Some years before his death it was decid- 
ed to establish an independent mission at Garstang, and a new chapel 
was opened in 1788, which considerably lightened Mr. Serjeant's labours. 
Thus tliis zealous priest continued for fifty years at Scorton, highly 
respected by all with whom he came in contact, till his death Aug. 31. 
1795, aged 81. He was succeeded by — 

Rev. James Lawrenson, born April 28, 1752, son of James Laurenson 
and his wife Jane Cottam, of Claughton, wlio arrived with John Gillow 
at Douaj^ College Oct. 16, 1766, took the college oath July 2, 1777, in 
his first year's theology, was ordained sub-deacon, and appointed to 
teach second-class rudiments on Oct. i, 1778. He had previously been 
obliged to leave the college in ill-health, and did so again and returned 
home in February, 1770, and eventually was ordained priest elsewhere 
{Douay Lists MSS.; Douay Diaries, p. 78 ; Kirk, Biographies, p. 287). 
He was given the charge of Chipping Lawnd in 1780 until 1795. when he 
was appointed to take Mr. Serjeant's place at Scorton, where he arrived 
on Sept. 20 in that year. Here he commenced to keep a baptismal 
register, and continued it until old age obliged him to retire from mis- 
sionary duties on Oct. 12, 1826. He died at Garstang Jan. 15, 1828, 
aged 75 {Hewitson, ibid., pp. 522, 547 ; Chapter Deceased Brethren, 
MS., Westminster Archives). His successor — 

Rev. John Dixon, for whom vide C.R.S., xv, 6, 112, arrived on 
Nov. 12, 1826, and remained in charge of the mission until Nov. 9, 1830, 
when he was replaced by — 

Rev. John "Woodcock, born in 1768, son of Mr. William Woodcock, 
of Preston, who by will dated Dec. 6, 1770, left his estates in Preston, 
Euxton, Billington, and Bartle in Woodplumpton to his eldest son and 
heir Thomas, who in 1807 sold his house and land in Preston to William 
Cross, of Redscar, Esq., for the formation of Winckley Square and Cross 

Tlie Woodcocks were descended from the Woodcocks of Woodcock 
Hall in Cuerden through a branch of the family settled at Lemon House 
in Walton-le-Dale. One of them, Fr. John Woodcock alias ftarrington, 
O.S.F., son of Thomas Woodcock, of Clayton, gent., and his wife Dorothy, 
daughter of James Anderton, of Clayton Hall, Esq., was martyred at 
Lancaster in 1646. The Woodcocks of Walton, always staunch recu- 
sants, purchased Lemon House in 1663, aiul eventually, towards the 
close of the eighteenth century, removed to Preston (Abram, Hist, of 
Blackburn, pp. 733-5 ; Gillow, Haydock Papers, pp. 87 seq., 132). 

John Woodcock was sent to Douay College, where he arrived Aug. 8, 
1781, and his younger brother Nicholas followed in the succeeding year. 
He passed through the usual course, became an alumnus, entered on his 
fourth year's theology on Oct. i, but during the French Revolution left 
the college on the 31st of the same month, and escaped over to England, 
where he was ordained priest at York in December, 1792 (Douay 
Lists MS.). He served Egton Bridge till 1827, and then went to Wycliffe 
Hall, both in Yorkshire, whence he came to Scorton on Nov. 9, 1830. 


Four months before his death he retired from missionary duty to reside 
with the Rev. J. B. Marsh at Newhouse Chapel, where he died Feb. 12, 
1837, aged 70, and was buried in the chapel. He was succeeded by — 

Rev. Thomas Gillett, a native of I^ncashire and an Ushaw priest, 
who was at Dukinfield, co. Cheshire, 1835-7, whence he came to Scorton, 
but only remained till 1838. In the latter year lie removed to Brooms, 
CO. Durham, till 1845, when he went to St. Anne's, Leeds, and in 1846 
to Sedgfield, Durham. In 1850 he was transferred to Cheeseburn 
Grange, Northumberland, till 1855, when he retired from tlie piission in 
ill-health to Mount St. Bernard's Abbey, co. Leicester, whence he 
served Shepshed, and died April i, 1867 {Cntli. Directories, 1855-68). 
His successor at Scorton was— 

Rev. Robert Turpin, born in 1807, only son of Robert Turpin, of 
North Shields, co. Northumberland, a Protestant, who had married a 
Catholic, and himself became one in 1819, who was sent to Ushaw 
College in the spring of 1821, where he was ordained priest, and sent 
to the mission in Lord Street, Oldham, co. Lancaster, in 1833 (Erring- 
ton, Hist, of North Shields Mission, MS., apud me ; Cath. Mag., iv, 
p. xxvii ; T.aity's Directory, 1834). He was transferred to Bolton- 
le-Moors in 1835, and on Feb. i, 1838, took charge of the mission at 

Ml . Turpin erected a new church in place of the old chapel, dedicated 
to St. Mary and St. James. This substantial Gothic structure, designed 
by Henry Hansom, eldest son of the famous architect, Joseph A. Han- 
som, consists of a nave, a north aisle separated from the body of the 
building by four arches supported by circular stone columns, and a 
decorative chancel, terminating with a verv' pretty four-light window 
given by the late Richard Leeming, Esq., of Greaves House, Lancaster, 
and Lentworth Hall in one of the twelve vaccaries of Wyresdale. The 
Lady altar at the end of the north aisle came from Clifton Hill, and was 
given by Miss Gillow. Behind it was a rich stained-glass window 
presented by John Weld, Esq., of I.eagram Hall, near Chipping, and on 
the south side a two-light stained-glass window, one side given by 
Major Stapleton, and the other by Mr. Turpin. The church was designed 
to accommodate about 400 persons, there being about 230 in the congre- 
gation. The opening ceremony was on Oct. 2, 1861, and on the occasion 
the present writer was trainbearer to Bishop Alexander Goss. Thus 
Mr. Turpin continued in charge of the mission till his death, Feb, 27, 
1863, aged 55, and was interred within the porch of the church beneath 
a fine tablet to his memory. His portrait in oil is at the rectory. He was 
succeeded by — 

Rev. Joseph Canon Ilsley, D.D., late president of the English 
College at Lisbon. Bom Dec. 20, 1805, he was son of Joseph and Jane 
Ilsley, of Maple Durham, co. Oxon., was admitted into the college at 
Lisbon June 29, 1819, was ordained priest Dec. 3, 1826, and retained 
on the professorial staff. There he founded a flourishing secular school, 
which he continued to supervise for many years until in April, 1853, 
he handed it over to the college. For about two years he acted as pro- 
rector, until he was appointed president in 1854 by Pius IX. who also 
conferred upon him the degree of D.D. In 1859 he became subject 
to epileptic attacks of a grave character, and in consequence was obliged 
to resign his office of president in June, 1862, and to return to England. 
Bishop Goss then appointed him to the mission of Scorton. where he 
soon began to be afflicted with almost total loss of sight, till at length he 
succumbed on Aug. 30, 1868, aged 62, and was buried within the porch 
(Gillow, Lisbon Reg., p. 219). He was succeeded by — 


Rev. Austin William Splainc, who came to assist Dr. llsley in 1864. 
He was bom in Liverpool Sept. 4, 1836, locally educated at the Catholic 
Institute, thence sent to St. Edmund's Benedictine College at Douay, 
where he was admitted Sept. 20, i860 ; ordained priest June 19, 1863 ; 
left July 9, 1864, and came straight to Scorton as above stated. Thus, 
upon succeeding to the rectorate in 1S68, he continued to hold the posi- 
tion till his death, Nov. 24, 1S88, aged 52. Three of his brothers joined 
the Society, FF. James, Cyprian, and William, whilst a fourth died an 
ecclesiastical student (Gillow, Lisbon Reg., }). 254). He was succeeded 

Rev. Patrick Flj-nn, who stayed till his death, Dec. 20, 1900.

halgh. 1901 to date. joseph gillow.

several business accounts and medicinal recipes. Book II, a well-made 
album, witli stiff cardboard backs, half-bound leather, 8 x 6|- inches, 
containing 276 pages, gives the baptisms from Oct. i8th, 1795, to Janu- 
ary, 1856, when the registers ordered by the ist Synod of Oscott resume 
the record and bring it up to the present. There are lists of ' Confirmati '

locally pronounced Clyton, lying between the Calder on the north and 
tlie Brock on the south, and latterly called Claughton-on-Brock, is a 
township situated some two miles soutli-east of Garstang, in that part of 
tlie old ecclesiastical parish of that name. It gave name to a local 
family of which Richard de Clacton or Claghton at an early period was 
a benefactor to Cockersand Abbey. The subsequent descent of the 
manor is obscure, but eventually, whilst one moiety was held by the 
Singletons and their successors the Banisters, Balderstons, etc., the 
other was acquired by the family deriving from Adam de Brockholes, 
second son of Roger de Brockholes of Brocklioles, which for at least 
three generations had inherited lands in Byre-within-Bonds in Garstang 
and Claughton. Roger de Brockholes in 1338 received from William 
de Tatham, rector of Halton, the manor of Claughton, purchased from 
Adam, son of Richard de Claughton. The grant was charged with the 
maintenance of a chaplain in Claughton, or at Garstang Church, with a 
stipend of 66s. Sd. Roger de Brockholes was killed in December, 1341, 
leaving an infant son and namesake, who married Ellen, daughter of 
Sir Adam de Clitheroe, and released in 1377-8 all claim to the manor of 
Brockholes to Nicholas de Brocklioles, of the senior branch of the 
family, between whose two daughters and coheiresses the manor was 
divided, and who married respectively Roger de Ethelston and Thomas 
de Singleton. Thus Claughton Hall, standing in a large park situated 
near the centre of the township, became the principal seat of the Brock- 
holes family, though at various periods it occupied Pleaton Hall, within 
the manor of Heaton-cum-Oxcliffe, some two or three miles west-south- 
west of Lancaster, originally inherited from the de Heatons, and still 
held by the Brockholes family (Harland, Baines' Hist, of Lane; Victoria 
Hist, of the County of Lancaster, vii). 

From the earliest times of the so-called Reformation of the Church 
in England, the Brockholes family absolutely declined to associate itself 
with the subversion of the ancient Faith or to submit to the new system 
of religion imported from Germany and imposed on the people for 
political ends. This it regarded with the utmost contempt, and adliered 
to its creed in spite of the most severe persecution. In the Gardyncr 
foundation of a chantry in the chapel of Our Lady in Lancaster in 1485, 
Mass was appointed to be said for the repose of the soul of Robert 
[? Roger] Brockholes, and about 1499 Roger, son and heir of John de 
Brockholes, of Claughton and Heaton, founded the chantrj' of St. James, 
in the parish church of Carstang, of which Sir Henry Haj-e was the priest 
when the chantry was suppressed in 1548 (Rains, Hist, of Lane. C/iantnes). 
Henceforward the family maintained a secret chapel in the hall at 
Claughton, supplying its religious observances with the assistance of 


the numerous Marian priests dispossessed of their incumbencies, and 
those seminarists and Jesuits who at the risk of their lives came over 
from the EngUsh colleges abroad to keep alive the ancient Faith in 

As stated in " A Sumarie Informacon of the State of Lanca- 
shire Exhibited by the L. Bishop [of Chester] : Register unto the 
late highe Cofnission in those parts, accordinge to the Direcon of the 
Bishop his m^ " {P.R.O., Dam. Eliz., ccxxxv, No. 68), about 1390 — 
" (i) The nomber of the Recusants is great, and dothe dailie increase. 
(2) There raaie bee scene usuallie every Sonday and hollieday, as hathe 
also very lately beene confessed, as many people repayre to place sus- 
pected in Religion, as to the Parishe Church. (3) The Papists every- 
where are growen so confident, that they contempne IMagistrats and 
theire authorytie as male appere by the late outrage shewed towards 
the B. and his oflScers at Wigan, as allso by the lewde rebellious speeches 
& usage of the prysoners in the filcete at Manchester." The secretary' 
then goes on to give a doleful report of the contempt and neglect of the 
newly set up " religious service of God." Indeed, the gentry and better 
sort scorned the Protestant ministers, and contemptuously termed the 
Elizabethan obligator}^ monthly sacrament as " taking wine with the 
parson." Notwithstanding, although the family continued tointermarry 
with the leading recusants of the county, such as the Sherburnes of 
Stonyhurst, Rigmaydens of Wedacre, Singletons of Broughton Tower, 
Bradylls of Portfield, Leyburnes of Cunswick, and other staunch Catho- 
lics, the head of the Brocklioles family probably evaded the penal laws 
by nominal and occasional conformity, for " Thomas Brockholes of 
Claighton, Esq''," only appears as paying for his wife's recusancy in 
1598 in the shape of being " assessed for her Ma<'<^s ser^dce in Ire- 
land " (Dom. Eliz., cccxvi. No. 80). Indeed, this lady, Dorothy, 
daughter of Nicholas Leyburne, of Cunswick Hall, had been on the 
recusant rolls as early as 159 1-2. It was impossible for the head of the 
family to a\-oid the meshes of the penal laws much longer, so that after 
James I ascended the throne and had devised the scheme of feeding 
his hungry followers by granting them the benefit of the recusancy of 
Catholics, Thomas Brocklioles, of Claughton, was handed over to the 
rapacities of an impecunious Scotchman called David Steward, who 
settled in Lancaster for the purpose of squeezing what he could out of 
the estates of those Catholics committed to his plunder, Dec. 23, 1607, 
and on March 21, 1608-9, one Charles Chambers was granted the same 
privilege {Dom. James I, xxviii, 97, No. 122 ; ibid., xxxi. No. i). 

Thus in this strain of varied persecution for conscience-sake, things 
went on merrily from the Protestant point of view, and successive 
generations both at Claughton Hall and Heaton Hall felt the full pres- 
sure of the penal laws. In both of these residences there were chapels, 
but that at Claughton only demands present attention. In the seven- 
teenth century two priests of the family appear in the diaries of Douay 
and Lisbon, Thomas and Roger, younger sons of Thomas Brockholes 
and his wife Mar>^ daughter and heiress of John Holden, of Chaighley 
Manor. Both of them often said Mass at Claughton and Heaton. 
The elder, Thomas, took the oath at Douay College Sept. 8, 1676 {Douay 
Diaries, p. 49), and in due course was ordained priest and came to the 
inission. In the reign of James II he officiated at Whitehall, London, 
and in March, 1697, he appears to have been in Lancashire. Anyhow, 
about this time he is met with at Sunderland Hall in Balderston, the 
seat of the Osbaldestons {vide Abram, Hist, of Blackburn, p. 355, 
where the date is given as 1690). About 1716 he was acting as chaplain 


to William Massey, of Puddington Hall, Cheshire, Esq. (Payne, Records, 
pp. 05, 121), and in 1717 he was at Standish Hall, the seat of the Standish 
family, but subscqucntlj' removed to Burgh Hall, near Chorley, the seat 
of the Cliadwicks, where he died Nov. 10, 1738 [Old Chapter Obit. MS.). 
The younger brother, Roger, took the oath at Douay in 1678, was 
transferred to Lisbon, where he was admitted Jime 15, 1683, became an 
alumnus 1684, was ordained, and tauglit classics for three years. He was 
made professor of philosophy in 1687, and di\'inity in 1690. In 1695 
he came to the mission, was appointed senior chaplain to the convent at 
York Bar, was elected a capitular, became archdeacon Oct. 10, 1698, 
and died at York Bar in 1700 (Gillow, Reg. of Lisbon, p. 182). 

In the following generation tliere were three priests. Thomas, Roger, 
and Fr. Charles Brockholes, S.J., sons of John Brockholes, Esq., by his 
first wife, Anne, daughter and heiress of William Barcroft, of Barcroft 
Hall, Esq., and with the death of the Jesuit in 1759 ended the ancient 
family of Brockholes in the male line. Thomas, the eldest of the three 
priests, became an alumnus at Douay Dec. 8, 1705, having been appointed 
to teacli rudiments on the previous Oct. i (Douay Lists MS.; Douay 
Diaries, p. 54), and he was ordained priest in December, 1706, remaining 
at the college for many years as general prefect and procurator. After 
the troubles ensuing upon the unsuccessful Jacobite Rising in 1715. 
he came over to England on family business matters se\'eral times before 
he finally left the college, and is said first to have been at Manchester. 
In May, 1727, he was appointed to Wolverhampton, and in 1730 suc- 
ceeded Mr. Edward Dicconson alias Eaton, subsequently bishop of the 
Northern Vicariate, at Chillington Hall, co. Stafford, the seat of Peter 
Giffard, Esq. He was made a member of the Old Chapter May 23, 1729, 
and in 1754 was elected archdeacon of Staffordshire, Cheshire, and Derby- 
shire. He was also grand-vicar to Bishop Stonor. He died Jan. 16, 
1758, at Chillington HaU {Clergy Obit. MS.; GiUow, Biog. Diet., i, 308 : 
Kirk, Biog., p. 270). 

Roger, the next brother, will be treated under the list of the mis- 
sioners at Claughton, and — 

Charles, the Jesuit, was born in 1684, made his humanities at St. 
Omer's College, entered the Society at Watten, Sept. 7, 1705, and in 1711 
was sent to Maryland. He returned to England about 1716, and served 
the missions at Blackrod and Wigan for many years, dying at the latter 
Feb. 20, 1759, aged 75, the last of his family. 

The name was then assumed in succession by the three sons of Mary, 
daughter of John Brockholes, and sister of the three priests, who married 
in 1710 William Hesketh, of Maynes Hall, Esq. These were Thomas, 
Joseph, and James Hesketh, after whose decease without issue the 
estates passed in 1783, as related in a note to the registers, to the Fitz- 
herberts, who likewise assumed the additional name of Brockholes, 
and are still in possession (Jones, Miscel. Pedigrees, MS., p. 470 ; 
E. M. Phipps, MSS.; Visitations of Lane, 1613 and 1664 ; Gillow, Lane. 
Recusants MSS.; Twycross, Lane. Mansions II, 41 seq.). 
Missi oners. 

Mgr. Gradwell, in the historical sketch which he wrote of the 
mission of Claughton-on-Brock {Liverpool Diocesan Almanac, 1885), 
states that the Rev. Thomas Whitakcr, the venerable martyr, is the 
first priest whose name is recorded as having done duty in this neigh- 
bourhood in post-Reformation times. Indeed, the good monsignor 
was so satisfied with his assumption of the martyr's missionary labours 
extending to Claughton, that he erected in the cemetery a statue to 
his memory, taken from the portrait preserved at his alma mater, of 


whicli he gave an illustration in his sketch of the mission. Tlie only 
evidence of the martyr's service in this neighbourhood is the statement 
of his final arrest at Blackehall, in Goosnargh, the residence of Edward 
Midgeall, Esq.. whose wife Frances was a daughter of Thomas Whitting- 
ham, of VVhittinghani Hall, of a noted Catholic family. It is very proba- 
ble that the chapel in Whittingham Hall was served by the martyr, 
as well as those maintained by the Heskeths of Whitehill, the Threlfalls 
of The Ashes, the Kighleys of White Lee, and other families in the 
Goosnargh district. 

Thomas Whitaker, son of Thomas Whitaker, master of the Burnley 
Grammar School, was baptized in that town on Sept. 26, 161 1 {Lane. 
Par. Reg. Soc, ii, 60). His mother's Christian name was Ellen, and as 
a widow she was buried at Burnley Oct. 5, 1652 {ibid., 278). Having 
made his early studies at his father's school, he was sent to the English 
college at Valladolid, at tlie expense of Richard and Charles Towneley, 
of Towneley Hall, and there he was admitted in 1634, under the alias 
of Starkey or Starkie. There he completed his full course of philosophy 
and his second year's theology, was ordained priest, and sent to Eng- 
land in 1638 [Valladolid Diary, MS.). On the mission, where or when 
is not stated, the martyr was arrested, but managed to escape from the 
])ursuivants whilst being conveyed to Lancaster " at a part strange to 
him," and, returning to his friends, resumed his ministrations till he was 
again apprehended, as previously related, at Blackehall. This time he 
was conducted to Lancaster and committed to the castle on Aug. 7, 
1643, the very day on which, after three years' detention, he was mar- 
tyred at the common place of execution outside the town. Bishop 
Challoner's Memoirs of Missionary Priests, 174 1-2, is little more, if 
anything, than an abridgement of the " Sufferings of Catholics," com- 
piled by the Rev. John Knaresborough (Gillow, Biog. Diet., iv, 60-2), 
before his death in 1724. One of the MSS., the very volume in which 
the Ven. Thomas Whitaker 's memoir appeared, was lent to the bishop, 
as inscribed on a fly-leaf of the MS., and in due course returned to its 
owner and the place where it lay till the present writer recently discovered 
and secured it after thirty years of continuous search. Though the 
account of the martyr in the original MS. contains additional matter 
to that printed by the bishop, there is nothing on which to base the 
contention that he was in any way associated with Claughton, and 
hence it remains merely an assumption. 

In the same category must be considered Bishop Gradwell's note that 
a " Rev. Mr. Walmsley " preceded ]Mr. Blackburne as priest at Claugh- 
ton (Pollen and Burton's Kirk's Biographies, p. 271). Mgr. Gradwell 
calls him the " Rev. T. Walmsley," adds that he was at Claughton in 
1665, adopted as his motto Pars mea Dens in aeternum, and appears to 
have said Mass at the hall, whilst extending " his missionary labours 
over Goosnargh, Scorton, and the neighbourhood." The latter state- 
ment suggests confusion with the Rev. Richard Walmesley, of Scorton, of 
a later date. There was no priest of the name of T, Walmsley who 
could have resided at Claughton at this period, but there were several 
lay-Catholics of the name who lived there. 

The Rev. Edward Blackburne, born in 1633, younger son of John 
Blackburne, of Stockenbridge Hall, Esq., went to St. Omer's College 
for three years, and thence on Oct. 11, 1658, was admitted into the English 
College at Rome under the alias of John Carey. There he was ordained 
subdeacon and deacon in March and April, and priest on April 9, 1661. 
He left the college for England in January, 1663 (Foley, Reeords S.J., vi, 
395), and possibly for a time attended to the mission around Stocken- 


bridge, in the townsliip of Tarniker and parish of St. Michael's, near 
Garstang. Afterwards it is ])robable that he was in Lonsdale Hundred, 
])crhaps at Ifcaton Hall, but eventually he is found at Claughton, and 
probably lived at the hall. By will dated Sept. lo, 1686, Richard 
Blackburne, of Scorton Hall, bequeathed his estate to his wife Margaret 
Nelson, of Mawdesley, for life, with remainder to the Rev. John Black- 
burne, of Gorsuch Hall, and Christopher Gradell, of Barbies Moor, whose 
wife was a daughter of Thomas Nelson, of Fairhurst Hall, by his 
second wife, a Hesketh of Maynes (his first being a Molyneux of 
The Wood), in trust to pay one-third of the estate to the secular 
clergymen who shall assist the Catholics in Mawdesley and in the parish 
of Garstang, four Masses to be said monthly for the repose of the souls 
of Richard and Margaret Blackburne, with twenty shillings for the poor 
Catholics in Lower Wj^resdale and Mawdesley respectively ; and further 
to the priests in charge of " Our Blessed Ladies Chapel at Fernihalgh " 
all the remainder of the estate. About this trust the Rev. John Black- 
burne and Christopher Gradell made a Declaration Jan. 15, 1691 
{West Derby Hundred Records, MS., and origitml document directed to the 
Rev. Robert Banister, of Mowbreck Hall). Mr. John Blackburne died at 
Moor Hall, Aughton, the seat of Mrs. Wolfall, April 2, 1728, and was 
buried in the ruined chapel of St. Catherine at Lydiate, whilst Mr. 
Christopher Gradell lived well into the eighteenth century. The latter's 
father, William Gradell, of Barbies Moor, Esq., whose wife was Eliza- 
beth, daughter of Capt. John Butler, of Kirkland Hall, in Garstang, 
by Mary, daughter of Thomas Stanley, of Great Eccleston Hall, Esq., 
was trustee for what was known amongst Catholics as the " Garstang 
Parish Trust " for the support of a priest in those parts, given by some 
member of the Molyneux family, and in 1680 he nominated in his place 
the Rev. Edward Blackburne, the priest at Claughton (Gradwell, Hist, 
of the Mission) . 

About 1700 Mr. Blackburne and his nephew, the Rev. Richard Taylor 
alias Sherburne, who had come to Claughton to assist in the mission, 
purchased from Mr. Charles Butler, eldest son of Henry Butler, of Great 
Eccleston, gent., second son of Henry Butler, of Rawcliffe Hall, Esq., 
the site of the present chapel and presbytery. Mr. Butler's eldest son, 
Lancelot Butler, Esq., who died June 6, 1754, married Alice, daughter 
and heiress of Nicholas Taylor, of Great Eccleston, gent., who died in 
1 712, a near relative of the Rev. Richard Taylor. Lancelot's son, 
Richard Butler, was the purchaser of the manor of Pleasington and the 
hall in 1777. It was upon this site that Mr. Taylor erected a hoiise at 
his sole charge, with the exception of £1 is. given him by his uncle. 
This house, however, was not erected for the benefit of the mission, 
though eventually it became the presbytery attached to the present 
chapel. Mr. Taylor left his wliole interest in the property to his own 
family, though he bequeathed ^70 for anniversary Masses for himself 
and relatives, with directions that they be said at his house in Claughton. 

In 1673, when the Secular Clergy Fund was instituted, Mr. Black- 
burne's name appears in the list of the original members, and it should 
be noted that in 1675 he was Collector for the Hundred of Lonsdale 
(Bolron, Papists' Bloody Oath of Secrecy, 1680). In 1680 he subscribed 
/lo to the Lancashire and Westmorland Clergy Fund, as it was then 
called (Kirk, Biog. Collections). He was also rural dean of Amounder- 
ness Hundred, including the Fylde, Preston, and Garstang. He died 
at Claughton in September, 1709, aged 75, and his will was proved in 
that year at Richmond (Fishwick, Lane. Record Soc, vol. xiii). He 
was succeeded by — 


Rev. Richard Taylor alias Sherburne, son of Richard Taylor, of 
Great Eccleston, gent., and his wife, a daughter of John Blackburne, of 
Stockenbridge Hall, Esq. The Taylors of Great Eccleston were related 
to the Catons, one of whom, Mrs. Joan Caton, widow, resided on her 
own property at Claughton with her sister, Miss Alice Taylor, and both 
were considerable supporters of the missions at Scorton and Claughton. 
They were sisters to the Rev. Richard Taylor. The latter was sent to 
the English College at Lisbon, where he was admitted an alumnus 
Dec. 30, 1682. Having been ordained priest, he left the college for 
England May 19, 1685, and was placed with his uncle, the Rev. Edward 
Blackburne, at Claughton. On the mission he assumed the name of 
Sherburne, possibly through some kinship with the Sherburnes of Wolf 
House in Chipping. Upon the death of his uncle in 1709, he succeeded 
to the sole charge of the mission. During the troubles consequent on 
the Jacobite Rising of 1715, Mr. Taylor had to fly from Claughton, and 
for a time lived in an obscure house in Goosnargh, where he officiated 
in great privacy as frequently as it was considered safe. He was 
sought by the priest-catchers, but always eluded capture. As soon as 
things quietened down, Mr. Taylor returned to Claugliton, and retained 
charge of the mission till his death June 3, 1726. Tlierc are many 
mementoes of him at the rectory- — an oak desk, apparently having be- 
longed to his father, as it is inscribed R.T., with the date 1680 ; some 
valuable works of divinity and ecclesiastical history ; and an interesting 
relic in the shape of a fiat stone, 13x12x1 inches, which possibly had 
been inserted over a fire-place. It bears the representation of a host, 
under which are the initials R.T. on cither side of the Sacred Heart, and 
at foot the date 1714. 

Squire Tyldesiey, in his Diary, records several occasions on which 
he went to Claughton for Mass or otherwise, or met the Brockholes 
family — Sunday, Jan. 3, 1714, "Thence to Esq^e Brookholles ; sate 
with ye younge Esq" an how'' ; pray" [heard Mass] ; and thence to y^ 
ffell-end. Dined with Mr. Walker, Mr. Cawthorne, Mr. Tayl^ one David 
Alex'ir, newly comen ffrom ffiand" ; gave ye boy 6^ ; soe home." — 
May 4, 1 71 4, " Went to pVIyerscough] Lodge a ffishing. Mett 3 Mr. 
Brookholles [Thomas and Roger, priests, and William, sons of John]. 
Gott 6 carpes and 3 tenches ; one of the ffinest has been .seen, most 
whereoff wee tuke to Natby, Dear Jack and Jemmy with us [John 
and James Leyburne, of Nateby Hall]." — Sunday, July 25, 1714, " Went 
[to Mass] with Mrs. and lasses to Antony Lunds [of Midgehalgh]. Mr. 
Rogr Brookhall din^ with us. Went to Natby, Dick Gornall with mee. 
Saw Cos. Gerard and his wife there." — Sunday, September 12, 1714, 
" After dinr went [from The Lodge, Myerscough] with Mrs. to Esq^e 
Brookholles. Over tuke Mr. Kirke. Stayi there betwixt 2 & 3 how" ; 
soe home." The Rev. Francis Kirk was the priest in charge of The 
Hough, HoUowforth in Newsham, the adjoining mission to Claughton, 
of whom some notice is given C.R.S., xv, 317 ; — Sunday, Sept. 19, 1714, 
" Went to Whithill [the seat of Gabriel Hesketh, of Whitehill in Goos- 
nargh, Esq.] ; found son Threlfall and lady there [Cuthbert Threlfall, 
Esq., of The Ashes in Goosnargh] ; stayi alday. Thence call** at Esq'e 
Brookholles ; soe home [Myerscough Lodge] " ; — Tuesday, Sept. 21, 
1 714, " I went a hunting, but call'i att Esq" Brookholles to pray [Mass], 
soe home." 

After the unsuccessful raid of the Chevalier de St. George in 1715, 

George Greene, of Goosnargh, gent., the high-constable of Amounderness 

Hundred, for\varded to his majesty's commissioners for Forfeited Estates 

on Oct. 17, 1 71 6, " True Copies " of the returns of the various constables 



of the townships, and under that of Claughton, dated Oct. 12 {P.R.O., 
Forfeited Estates Papers, L 2), John Goose, constable, reports as traitors : 
" John Brocklioles and Wm. Brockholes (sons of John Brockholes, Esq.), 
James Dockady ; Priests or so reputed is l^oger Brockholes and Richard 
Taylor." The eldest and youngest sons of the squire were Jolin, a 
bachelor, who probably died through the effect of wounds receixed at 
the battle of Preston, Sept. 25, 1717, and William, who married but 
died s.p., when the Brockholes estates passed in succession to the tliree 
sons of his sister ]\Iary, wife of William llcsketli, of Mayncs Hall, E«q. 
James Dockeday (or Dogheda, as he is elsewliere called), tlie other 
traitor returned as of Claughton, was merely described as a Papist 
husbandman possessed of no estate in the township. John Brockholes, 
Esq., and his son William Brockholes, gent., with James Dockeday, 
husbandman, were all convicted of recusancy at the Lancaster Sessions 
on Jan. 15, 1716-7 {P.R.O., Forfeited Estates, 62 P.). The squire's 
other three sons were Thomas and Roger, secidar priests, and Charles, 
a Jesuit (Gillow, Biog. Diet., i, 306-9). Roger assisted various 
missionary stations in the neighbourhood from Claughton Hall, and 
succeeded Mr. Taylor to the charge of the mission in 1726 (Kirk, 
Biographies MSS., and printed version; Gillow, Lisbon Peg., pp. 257-8 ; 
Mgr. Robt. Gradwell, History of Claughton Mission, Liverpool Catholic 
Almanac, 1885, pp. 79-94 and correspondence with the writer ; Old Chapter 
Obit. MSS.). 

Rev. Roger Brockholes, a brief memoir of whom appeared C.R.S., 
^^'. 319. was born at Claughton in 1682, and, after studying some time 
at Ladywell, Fernyhalgh, went abroad and ultimately was admitted 
into the English College at Rome Oct. 17, 1703. He was ordained sub- 
deacon and deacon in March and April, priest June 2, 1708, and left 
the college for Paris April 25, 1710 (Foley, Records S.J. , vi, 454). Thence 
he came to Lancashire, and served \'arious districts around the place 
of his birth, eventually fixing his abode at one of his father's farms, now 
called Priestshome. He served The Hough as well as the chapel at 
Claughton Hall, and thus appears in Bishop Dicconson's list in 1741 
{List of his Clergy, MS.). He died at Priestshome, which was eventually 
settled upon the secular clergy priest serving Claughton, Dec. 30, 1742, 
aged 60. He was succeeded by — 

Rev. Richard Birtvvistle alias Halliwell, a scion of the ancient Catholic 
family of Birtwistle of Huncote, co. Lancaster, which returned a pedigree 
at Dugdale's Visitation in 1664. He probably assumed his alias from 
his mother, a daughter of William Halliwell, of Liverpool, gent., whose 
family was allied to those of Nelson of Fairhurst Hall, Molyneux of 
The Wood, and other county families. He was admitted into the Eng- 
lish College at Lisbon Aug. 17, 1727, on Dr. Thomas Godden's Fund, 
ordained priest Feb. 17, 1737, appointed prefect of studies March 31, 
1738, vice-president Oct. 31, 1739, and left the college for the mission 
Jan. 31, 1741. For a brief period he was stationed at Bunbury, in the 
parish of Spurstow, co. Chester, but came in the same year to succeed 
Mr. Brockholes at Claughton, and appears in Bishop Dicconson's List 
as serving here and at Newhouse. He was probably in ill-health when 
he left Lisbon, and died at Claughton Jan. 26, 1742-3. His successor 
was — 

Rev. James Parkinson alias Cotham, born Jan. 24, 1715-6, son of 
Richard Parkinson, of Broughton, gent., by Anne, daughter of Richard 
Cottam, of Banister Hey in Claughton, gent. He was a relative of the 
Brockholes family, his grandparents being Richard Perkinson (or Par- 
kinson), of Leach Hall, gent., and his wife Anne, daughter of John 


Brocklioles, of Claughton Hall, Esq., by his third wife Dorothy, daughter 
of Robert White, of Cross House, Great Eccleston, Esq. The subject 
of this memoir was sent from Dame Alice's school at Fernyhalgh tu 
Douay College by the Lancashire agent, the Rev. Nicholas Skelton. 
There he arrived with his brother Thomas in September, 1729 (Nic. 
Skelton's Douay Account Book MS.). The elder brother, Thomas, 
assumed the name of Golden, after his aunt, the wife of Thomas Golden, 
of Hardshaw Hall, in the parish of Prescot, gent., and the younger 
James that of Cottam or Cotham, as the name about this time began 
to be spelt, after his mother, tlic two ladies being sisters. The manor of 
Hardshaw subsequently descended to John Penketh-Cotham {C.R.S., 
vi, 106, 179, 182), and latterly to the Walmesley-Cothams. James 
became an alumnus at Douay Jul}' 25, 1734, received the tonsure and 
four minor orders at Cambrai May 29, 1738, the subdiaconate June 9, 
1739, the diaconate April 2, and the priesthood June 11, 1740, was 
appointed to teach grammar, left the college for the mission Sept. 27, 
1 74 1 [Douay Lists MS.), and came to Claughton to assist Mr. Birtwistle. 
Upon the latter's death he succeeded to the charge of Claughton and 

During his pastorate the house built by the Rev. Richard Taylor 
was purchased in 1745 from Mr. Lancelot Butler, whose wife was a 
Taylor, in the names of the bishop of the vicariate, Edward Dicconson, 
the Rev. Thomas Hawarden, and the Rev. John Couban for the benefit 
of the Claughton mission. After Mr. Parkinson was duly installed in 
his new abode, the room subsequently occupied as a library was con- 
verted into a chapel. It was approached from the back by stone steps, 
in the usual style of Catholic chapels at that period, generally described 
as " up-steps." 

Here he pursued the even course of his career until a fever contracted 
whilst attending his flock carried him away on Jan. 26, 1766, aged 50, 
and two days later he was buried at Broughton parish church, and en- 
tered in the register as " Mr. James Parkinson, a Romish Priest of 
Claughton " (Lane. Par. Reg. Soc, xl, 131). It was not until the follow- 
ing July 13 that his successor arrived — 

Rev. John Barrow, born :\Iay 13, 1735, son of Edward Barrow and 
his wife, Ann Hall, of Westby in the Fylde. He was grandnephew of 
Fr. John Barrow, S.J., who serv^ed the mission at Westby Hall in 1717. 
On Feb. 17, 1749, John Barrow was admitted into the English College 
at Rome, and after more than seven years left the college, June 15, 
1756 (Foley, Records S.J., vi, 492), but on arrival at Portsmouth was 
seized by a' press-gang, and compelled to serve for some years in one of 
his majesty's ships. On one occasion he was severely wounded in the 
hand, and tradition states that at length he escaped from his ship 
whilst stationed off Dunkirk by leaping through a porthole into the sea 
and swimming ashore. When retaken and tried by court-martial, he 
got off by pretending to speak no other language than Italian, and when 
told by the suspicious president that he was acquitted and might go, 
he had the presence of mind to appear not to understand, but asked the 
interpreter, " Che dici ? " (what does he say ?) (Gillow, Biog. Diet., i, 
145-8). In November, 1761, he was again in London, acting as escort 
to two young ladies travelling to the continent to embrace a religious 
life. These he conducted to the convent of Poor Clares at Gravelines, 
where one of his sisters was a nun {C.R.S., xiv, 156), and the next day 
he started off for Douay College, there was admitted Dec. 13, 1761 
{Douay Lists. MS.), and was placed in divinity. He became an alumnus 
May 24 {Dotuiy Diaries, p. 73), entered his fourth year's theology 


Oct. I, 1764, was ordained shortly afterwards, and appears as a professor 
at the opening of the following scholastic year, bnt left the college 
June 27, 1766, for the English mission (Douay Lists, MS.), and arrived 
at Clangliton as previously stated. His description of his journey to 
Lancashire is interesting, and displays something of the vigour of his 

During his administration, in June, 1774, Bishop William Walton, 
V.A.-N.D., made his visitation at Claugliton and confirmed 139 persons. 
On Feb. 3, 1783, the Rev. John Chadwick, of Weldbank, Chorley, V.G. 
for Lancashire, wrote to Bishop Mattliew Gibson, V.A.-N.D., at Head- 
lam, near Darlington, giving returns of all the missions in the county, 
Mr. Barrow being at Claughton with a congregation of 300 communi- 
cants {Ushaw Collections, MSS., ii, 491). Twice he effected great 
alterations in his chapel, the second time in 1794, when it was greatly 
enlarged, and to this day it remains substantially what he left it. As 
agent for the Secular Clergy Fund, of which he was appointed Collector 
for the Hundred of Amounderness in 1783, he rendered inestimable 
service in reorganising the investments ; and when Douay College was 
seized by the French Revolutionists in 1793 lie took a prominent part 
in its proposed re-establishment in the north of England, and Ushaw owes 
him a debt of gratitude for liis exertions in this respect. In his declining 
years, for some short time in 1803-5, ^^ had an assistant in the person 
of the Rev. Thomas Irving alias Sherburne {C.R.S., xv, 225), and for 
the last eighteen months of his life the Rev. Robert Gradwell, his eventual 
successor. His death took place at Claughton Feb. 12, 181 1, aged 75, 
and he was buried at the neighbouring mission of Newhouse. 

Rev. Robert Gradwell, born Jan. 26, 1777 {C.R.S., xv, 160), son of 
John Gradwell, of Clifton in the Fylde, yeoman, and liis wife Margaret, 
daughter and heiress of John Gregson, of Green House, Balderston, co. 
Lancaster, gent., was descended from a younger son of the ancient family 
of Gradell of Barbies Moor in Ulnes Walton, and some brief account of 
the family appears in the writer's notice of Bishop Gradwell, Biog. Diet., ii, 
547-57. After making his preliminary studies under the Rev. Robert 
Banister at Mowbreck Hall, young Gradwell was sent to Douay College, 
where he was admitted Sept. 30, 1791, but when the college was seized 
by the Revolutionists in August, 1793, he was confined with the remnant 
of the community in various places till they were liberated and per- 
mitted to return to England and land at Dover on March 2, 1795. 
The youth returned to his parents at Clifton, but eventually accompanied 
the Rev. George Leo Haydock and his brother Thomas to Crook Hall, 
Durham, where most of the Douay refugees had assembled, and was 
admitted Jan. 17, 1796. There he was ordained priest Dec. 4, 1802, 
and was retained by the president as professor of poetry and rhetoric 
until he left to be assistant to Mr. Barrow at Claughton on July 18, 
1809 {Ushaw Diary, MS.; Gillow, Haydock Papers). Upon Mr. Barrow's 
decease he succeeded to the charge of the mission, and retained it till 
1817, when, upon the restoration of the English College at Rome, he 
was appointed rector by the English vicars-apostolic. On Sept. 15 
he left Claughton in charge of his brother Henry, and arrived at Rome 
on the following Nov. 2. He received the degree of D.D. in 1820, On 
May 19, 1828, Propaganda elected liim to be co-adjutor to the vicar- 
apostolic of the London district, and he was consecrated bishop on the 
succeeding June 24th. Thus he resigned the rectorship of the English 
college, and departed for London, where he arrived in August. In his 
new sphere he won universal respect, but his health gave way under the 
strain, and he died of dropsy at Golden Square, London, March 15, 


1833, aged 56 (Brady, Episcop. Succession, iii, 197-9). He was succeeded 
at Claughton by — 

Rev. Henry Odo Gradwell, born at Clifton Nov. 19, 1792 {C.R.S., 
XV, 172), arrived at the college at Crook Hall from Preston, where his 
father had settled, Oct. 3, 1803, was ordained priest at Ushaw, and left 
for Claughton, where he said his first Mass Sept. 14, 1817, and the next day 
was left in charge of the mission by his brother Robert. About 1832 he 
was chosen secretary of the Infirm Clergy Fund, and later became its 
treasurer, an office which he retained till his death. In 1835 he decided 
to enlarge the chapel by adchng a sanctuary, and to improve its appear- 
ance by raising its height, and with the generous assistance of the 
squire, Thomas Fitzherbert-Brockholes, his brother Francis and his 
sister Mary Anne, then living at Leamington, the congregation, and Mr. 
Crradwell himself and his personal friends, the whole cost — about ;^i,400 
— was thus defrayed. Other improvements followed in course of time ; 
the presbytery was greatly enlarged about 1836, and in 1852 the sanctu- 
ary was redecorated, a new organ provided, and requisites procured 
for Benediction, at a total cost of above ^800. Hitherto there had been 
a primitive school conducted by Anthony Cardwell and his wife, Jane 
Penswick {C.R.S., xvi, 560), in the Lower Lane at Claughton, but this 
was found inadequate for the changed condition of the times. Help 
came from an unexpected quarter. Catherine Barton, of a respectable 
family residing in the neighbouring township of her name, liad whilst 
a mere girl entered into the service of the family of the loth Duke of 
Norfolk, who had married the daughter of John Brockholes by his 
.second wife, and eventually became housekeeper at Arundel Castle. 
Upon retiring from that position through increasing age and infirmity, 
she returned to her native parts, and after a time married a Mr. Gill, 
who came to reside in Claughton. Before she died she found the money 
for the purcliase of the little farm from the Corbishleys on which the 
school is now built, and bequeathed a sum sufficient to put the school- 
master's house in thorough repair. She was buried with honour in the 
graveyard at Newhouse. Mr. Gradwell then erected commodious schools, 
which were rapidly completed in 1840, and became an ornament to the 
neighbourhood. He was rural dean of Amounderness for a time, and 
when the Lancashire vicariate was formed in 1840 and his cousin, 
George Brown, was appointed the bishop, Mr. Gradwell was made vicar- 
general for the hundreds of Amounderness and Lonsdale. Upon the 
restoration of the liierarchy in 1850, lie was created canon of the diocese 
of Liverpool, but resigned that dignity in 1854. Two j-ears later he 
obtained the assistance of his nephew, the Rev. Robert Gradwell, who 
eventually succeeded him. Thus he continued till his death May 22, 
i860, aged 68, and, as there was then no cemetery at Claughton, his 
remains were conveyed to Preston for burial in the Gradwell family 
vault at St. Augustine's, at which the writer of these memoirs was present, 
and a brass on the epistle side of the church commemorates his memory 
and that of his nephew, tlie Rev. George Gradwell, ordained at Ushaw 
in 1853, and died in Preston Nov. 23, 1855. 

The Right Rev. Mgr. Robert Gradwell, born at Preston Oct. 27, 
1825, was the third son of Aldemian George Gradwell, of Preston, J. P. 
{C.R.S., XV, 161), and his wife Mary, daughter of Richard Ashhurst, 
steward to Sir Thomas Massey-Stanley, of Puddington Hall and Hooton 
Hall, CO. Chester, Bart., by Mary, daughter of John Blundell, of Preston, 
com merchant. He was sent to Ushaw College, where he arrived 
Aug. 12, 1837, and was ordained priest Dec. 20, 1849. He was retained 
as a professor for nearly a year, but left on account of iU-health Dec. 7, 


1850. From June. 1852, to June 10, 1856, he served at St. Augustine's, 
Preston, and then came to assist his uncle Henry in the mission at 
Claughton, to which he succeeded in i860. 

In i8bg increasing infirmities made an assistant necessary, and the 
Rev. George Dobson was appointed, and remained till 1871, when the 
Rev. Isaac Webster took his place. The latter was admitted into the 
English College at Lisbon March 2^, i860, ordained prie-st Dec. 18, 1869, 
and left June 11, 1870, for the mission. After a few weeks' experience 
at St. Patrick's, Liverpool, he was sent to St. Mary's, Wigan, 
whence he came to Claughton in 1871, and remained here till 1883. 
He was then transferred to St. Josejjh's, Anderton, near Chorley, where 
he continued till his return to St. ISIary's, Wigan, as head priest in 
Febi-uary, 1S99. There he remained till his death, Maj- 10, 1904. 
aged 59 (Giilow, Reg. of Lisbon, p. 268 ; Memoir with portrait, Liverpool 
Cath. Fam. Almanac, 1903, p. 140). 

]\Ir. Webster's place at Claughton was taken by the Rev. William 
Pinnington, another priest educated at Lisbon, wlio was there admitted 
Nov. 20, 1869, ordained Dec. 18, 1880, and retained in the college as 
a superior till he left for the mission Maj' i, 1883 (Giilow, Lisbon Reg., 
p. 241). He was at Claughton from 1883 to 1886, when he was trans- 
ferred to Liverpool, became a canon in 191 1, received the dignity of 
Monsignor in 1913, and was appointed vicar -general of the arch-diocese, 
a position which he .still holds. 

The next assistant at Claughton was the Re\^ James Cross, a native 
of Preston, where he was born May 22, 1859. He was educated at St. 
Edward's College, afterwards, it is said, at the diocesan seminary at 
Upholland, and completed his philosophy and theologj- at the diocesan 
seminary of Leeds. On Aug. 12, 1883, he was ordained priest in St. 
Joseph's, Liverpool, and soon aftenvards was appointed curate at that 
mission. .After three years, in 1886, he came to Claughton, but in 1889, 
after a brief period at Seaforth, he was appointed assistant at Garston, 
near Liverpool, where he remained till 1895. He then left to take charge 
of the mission of the B. Sacrament at Walton-on-the-Hill, but after 
a short stay owing to ill-liealth was obliged to retire from missionary 
duty to Liverpool, where as soon as he seemed better he was appointed 
to the church of the Sacred Heart. Again his health failed him, and 
once more he sought rest in retirement. Finally, he returned to Garston, 
in 1889, where, after two short months, he died Feb. 9, 1900, aged 42 
{Memoir, Liverpool Cath. An., 1901, p. 147). 

Mr. Gradwell added greatly to the beauty of the chapel. Mr. Tliomas 
Fitzherbert-Brockholes co-operated with him in giving the highly- 
finished statues of St. Tliomas the Apostle, the patron of the chapel, 
and St. Robert, ]Mr. Grad well's patron, with the two angels, whilst 
Mr. Brockhoies gave the Lady Altar and Mr. Gradwell that of St. Joseph 
at a cost of more than £1,000 from each. The old squire shortly before 
his death in 1873 conveyed to the mission a plot of land adjacent to the 
chapel for a cemetery, and undertook to lay it out. A baptistry was 
added in 1883, and a belfry was erected in 1897 in memory of Queen 
Victoria's jubilee. 

In 1882, in recognition of liis generosity to the cause of ecclesiastical 
education and of his literary attainments, Leo XIII conferred upon Mr. 
Gradwell the title of Monsignor, and later he was appointed a domestic 
prelate. More than twenty years before his death the Monsignor him- 
self told the present writer, whilst staying with him at Claugliton, that 
it was by mere chance he became aware that he possessed a facile pen, 
jnuch to his surprise, and from that time, though his sight had become 


greatly impaired, he poured forth a continuous stream of hteraturc, 
through the channels of the Preston journals, the Dublin Review, the 
Liverpool Catlwlic Almanac, the Catholic Fireside, the Transactions of 
the Lancashire and Cheshire Antiquarian Society, and other publications. 
They were mostly local historical sketches, or claims connected with 
Catholic interests, such as the John Parkinson Charity. Two of his 
separate publications were: "Christianity in Lancashire in Roman and 
Celtic Times. By the ^'er>• Re\. Mgr. R. Gradwell. Reprinted irom the 
Dublin Review for October, 1S84 " ; and " Succat ; or the Storj- of 
Sixty Years of the Life of St. Patrick." 

Thus he passed the remainder of his quiet and peaceful career till 
his death ^lay 16, 1906, aged 81, and was interred in a vault in his own 
cemetery, which he had prepared some twent}' years before (Hewitson, 
Our Country Churches and Chapels, pp. 286-297 '< Liverpool Cath. 
Annuals, 1885, pp. 79-84, 1907, pp. 118-124 ; Mgr. Cradwell's corre- 
spondence with the ivriter). 

Rev. Henry Holden succeeded as rector of the mission, practically 
ha\ing done all the work after his appointment as curate in 1S89, and 
he is still in charge. 

A mediaeval chalice brought from the chapel at ^laynes Hall is pre- 
served and in use at Claughton. The vestment chest and a small oak 
tabernacle that belonged to the Yen. Thomas Whitaker, brought from 
somewhere in Goosnargh, are also shown at the presbjiiery.

He married Mary, daughter of Sir Thomas Gage, of Hengrave Hall, co. Suffolk, 

ifi Mrs. Maria Anne Fitzherbert, wife of the then Prince of Wales, after- 
wards George IV (vide Gillow, Biog. Diet., ii, 279-283), born July 26, 1756, 
was daughter of Walter Smythe, of Brambridge, co. Hants, Esq., second son 
of Sir John Smythe; of Esh Hall, co. Durham, and Acton Burnell Hall, co . 
Shropshire. Bart. In July, 1775, she married Edward Weld, of Lulworth 
Castle, CO. Dorset, Esq., who died in the course of the same year. She married 
secondly in 1778 Thomas Fitzherbert, of Swynnei'ton Park, who only survived 
the union three years. Four years after Mr. Fitzherbert's death, wliilst resid- 
ing at Richmond Hill, the youthful heir to the throne became enamoured of 
her, and ultimately they were secretly married, a fact which within recent 
years has been absolutely proved by evidence. On this occasion the Prince 
with Mrs. Fitzherbert were at Claughton. They were also said to have visited 
Maynes Hall. She died at Brighton March 29, 1837, aged 80.

5|c I'resumably the second name of Leckonby derived from the Chorley 
family, but no connection or relationship is shown in the Leckonby pedigree. 
Richard Leckonby Chorley, probably brother to Mrs. Ratcliffe, emigrated to

A small book, 7x5 in., with limp leather back. There are 138 
pages in the book proper, and there is a loose sheet of four pages, which

[The Rev. Henry Gradwell started to keep his registers on a sheet of paper 
7x5 inches, making four pages. The right-hand top corner is tattered or 
gone, much is illegible, and no year is given. These were afterwards inserted 
in a book ; but as some discrepancies occur between the two, both are printed, 
different type being used.]
