The people engage to raise one-fourth, which is more than could be expected, considering their humble circumstances, and the severity of the times.
It is, therefore, hoped that the present will not be considered as an improper appeal to the benevo- lence of the religious public, and this case is cor- dially and respectfully recommended to their kind attention by the following mimsters: The sabjoined ballad-lines are worthy of pre- servation in the OhronicU Sorap Book re-prints.

For the under- mentioned genealogical details, I am indebted mainly to a pedigree in an early volume of the Keuj England Cfenealoghal RegUter, now but rarely to be met with.
Of the American Mathers it has been weO said, "The succession of eminent men by the name of Mather through a period of above one hundred years, was enough to make that name conspicuous for several ages or generations after those who gave the impression had passed away.
He was bom at Low- ton in , and after a aoitabla education at Oxford settled as the minister of the Episcopal Church at Toxteth, near LiverpooL Li he was removed from his charge and deposed from the ministry through nonconformity to oertain of the demands of the church.
Shortly afterwards he emigrated to Massachusetts Bay, arriving at Boa- ton, Auguat 17, ; and the next year Augnat 23, , waa appointed pastor of the church of Dorchester, Mass , where he spent the remainder in his life.
Died April 22, 16a9, aged 73 years. His second wife was Sarah, widow of the distinguished Rev. John Cotton - one of the earliest of tlie New England Fathers, and pastor of the first church in Boston.
By hid first wife he had surviving issue— Five sons four of whum entered the ministry , viz. Married a sister of Sir John Stevena, of Dublin, and left issue a daughter.
Settled at Dorohester, Mass. Succeeded his brother Samnel in Dublin, and ultimately died nnmanied in London, July 26, Richard Mather, was bom in Dorchester, Mass.
After spending four yean from home, he returned to New England in , and was invited to preach at the North Church, in Boston, to the pastorate of which he was ordained May 27, , and continued to hold through the remainder of his life, — a period of 62 yean.
The most lamooe incident in the life of Dr. Mather, and one which fully teetified to the esteem in which he waa held hy hia fellow country-men, was his aeleotion by the Oolomata aa the most suitable peraon to lay their grievanoes at the foot of the Throne.
He had aeveral interviews with kings James IL and WH- liam HL in the years 16S8 and , being well re- oeived by both monarohs, and from tha latter ob- tained snhstantial relief for his countrymen.
He died August 28, , in hia 84th year. Oneofhia successors in the ministenal office thus sums up his oharactar. Z Natlumid, bom July 6, , "aperson of uncommon attainments in religion and erudition.
Increase Mather, and who, if possible, excelled his father in learning and literary attainments, was bom Feb.
Four years later he was ordained minister of the Chnrch in Boston as colleague with his father, whom, howcTer, he survived but five yean, dying February 13, , age The acquirement of knowledge seems to have been with him accomplished without effort, and his writings show that they were generally drawn from the storehonsa of his mind, where from reading and obeervation they had been from time to time depo- rted.
His abiHty for acquiring languages has pro- bably been sutpsssed by but very few, and he is said to have been master of more languages than any other person in New England in his time.
Cotton Mather was a still more voluminous writer than his father. By his first wife he had isste seven diildreii, all of whom, with the ex- aeption of one daughter, died before him.

The changes since then have been aa follows: Albans, a third member was added to South Lancashire. The City of Manchester and the Boroughs of Liverpool and Salford had each an additional member given, the two former returning three members and the latter two ; and a new Borough was created at Staleybridge to return one member.
On the other side the ancient Borough of Lancaster waa dis- franchised for bribery and corrupt practices. In the Cities and Boroughs it varied oonsiderably, being governed in part by local usage, in part by Charters establishing exclu- sive privileges in part by various resolutions of the House of Commons in cases of disputed elections.

Prior to "the estates and connexions of the Earl of Derby, together with his personal influence, always enabled him to nom nate one of the mem- bers for the County, the other being selected by the old Tory County families.
And, notwith- standing the great extension of the franchise by the two Reform Acts, the Earl can still invariably ooomiand a seat for a member of his family in the Korthem Division of the County.

Last year I put together a short account of the Rev. Charles Merle, rector of Winwick, the well known Prolocutor of the celebrated Assembly of Divines, based upon a large amount of materials, which for some years I have been cnllectiug from MSS.
I now find from the second edition of a History of Winwicki by Mr. Beamont leads his readers astray, as, e. Beamont is also indebted to the writer of this note for many other documents, Aa, in the present edition which were given up with habitual readiness.
Amongst them were the important List of the Protestors of the parish of Winwick, page 43 , the only paper of high value in the en- tire History ; the notes on the payment of the Bec- torial first fraits, which, with iniormation from k Wood and other sources, reduced to order Mr.

Bea mont on more accurate lines of research, have not been pursued, and that his statements in conse- quence are still at sixes and sevens.
Beamont further stated that he was Edward Gee, D. As far as I was then able I pointed out some of these errors to the Author, explaining inter aiUa that the preacher at Newton which was Newton, near MaTichester, not Newton- le- Willows was Oeorge Gee, whose dates were ; and that there was a Robert Gee, who was pastor at Newchurch, in Winwick parish, about Supplied with these and other hints Mr.
Beamont, in the present second edition, has, unfortunately, still further complicated the mat- ter by making the following statement pp. This very careless statement is transferred, but not quite accurately, from an ill-digested note in Br.
Mary, Devonshire], and became chaphiin to Dr. Before that time hehad probably offici- ated as curate of Winwick. I do not beHeve that Edward Gee had any official standing whatever in Winwick pariah.
Continuing his ao- count of Edward Gee, the writer assigns another yair— still incorrect— to his impriflomnent. Then this explanation intervenes, in reference to the statement of the first edition: The sermons one of which, at least, was preached in the former century aro in the Chetham Library, and will explain them- selves when looked at.

Both died unmarried and were buried in Merton chancel. William de Grey appears to have lived at Merton with his mother, until he had arrived at the age of twenty- two, and then to have married Elizabeth, sister and eventually coheir of Thomas Bedingfield of Darsham, Esq.
By her he had eleven children, of whom five survived him. Both he and his wife died young. William de Grey seems to have inherited the accuracy and business habits of his grandfather Sir William.
His account and note books are of great interest, as showing the habits and mode of life of a country gentleman of good estate two hundred years ago.
We see him residing at his country seat, except when he paid visits to his county neighbours, as to Mr. Wilson of Didlington, or when he was obliged to go to London to fulfil his duties as a Member of Parliament for Thetford, and then going, no doubt, in his coach and four Book No.
We see him in other respects liberal yet careful, giving the Rector his Easter ofiering, yet taking from him the price of the keep of his horse which stood in the Merton stables.
We see him generous upon occasions to his tenants, yet determined that they shall obey. We see him acting as banker to his servants, and paying them interest on the money they deposit in his hands.

Lord Chief Justice Wilmot having this evening resigned his office, I am commanded by His Majesty to inform you that he has pitched upon you for his successor.
You will know better than I do the steps that are proper to take upon this occasion; as Lord Chief Justice Wilmot has actually resigned it will be right to proceed in them with all convenient speed.

He was the eldest son of the Rev. George Crab be, VOL. Crabbe was bom 1st June, , at Pucklechurch in Gloucestershire, of which his father was at that time serving the curacy, and having received his earliest education at Bristol, was removed to the Grammar School at Bury St.
Having been curate for five years to the Hon. He married his first cousin, Emily Louisa, one of the daughters of the Rev. His health having given way about the year , he had recourse to the mild climate of the Riviera, and passed many succeeding winters away from home at Men tone, Bournemouth, and Hastings.
He had at different times, with a view both to health and information, visited Rome, Madrid, and other parts of the continent, and had only recently returned from Northern Italy with his surviving daughter, the constant companion of his later excursionB, when he became seriously unwell, but rallied, and was again occupied about his usual pursuits, when a relapse occurred, which ended fatally.
The foregoing lines contain the bare outline of a life, but a few words must be added, in order to indioate what nmnner of man he was, who led it.
He is sensible, notwithstanding, of a difficulty in doing justice to them, arising out of the simple unaffected naturalness of disposition, by which his late friend was distinguished.
A career, diversified by few striking incidents, offers comparatively little for a biographical notice, and yet it is one over which the memory of survivors frequently lingers with the most affectionate regret.
To have discharged the duties of his calling with unobtrusive fidelity, to have left behind him a blameless reputation, to have been wsrm in his friendships, whilst making many friends and leaving no enemy, would of themselves constitute no unmeet titles to commendation.
Crabbe was more than this. He possessod a cultivated taste, taking pleasure in painting, architecture, and the fine arts generally ; whilst, during the last few years of his life, a now source of interest was opened to him in those archsBological enquiries, which access to the muniment-room at Merton Hall brought within his reach, and the results of which have, in part, appeared in this journal.
The owners, Sir E. Brome Hall and Brome Manor are, it is true, in Suffolk ; there is, however, no mention of Brome in the volume; the local entries chiefly relate to Stuston or Sturston , a neighbouring Suffolk village, and to Scole, which lies in Norfolk, the shire boundary passing along the river Waveney and between these parishes.
Brome Hall was bought by the grandfather of the present owner. Sir Edward Kerrison, Bart, from the Comwallis family, in whose possession it had 1 2 been since early in the fifteenth century.
It is not clear how this book, which chiefly concerns Stuston, came into the Brome muniment-room: Mistress Froxmer was a daughter of the Comwallis family, and Melton, as shown hereafter, was probably steward of the Comwallis property and the adiriser of the family.
He wanted to put down his notes of manorial dues and other matters relating to Stuston leet and court baron law, and finding this volume only half filled with poetry used it for his purpose.
The book is paper, of eighty-one leaves, eight inches long by five-and-a-half wide, with a much-worn parchment cover and flap, stitched to the quires with a piece of cowhide at the back.
The contents are of three classes: The earliest of these accounts is dated from 15th to 19th Henry YII. A selection from each of these classes is given here, together with a list of the whole.
The first three leaves are filled with short pieces or fragments, a prelude to the longer religious poems. The first fac-simile represents the back of the first leaf, con- taining the curious old puzzles printed on pp.
Hence the appropriate design of some of the sacred signs, among which it is unusual to find the heart introduced.
The most interesting of the poems 18 the play of Abrahanis Sacrifice of Isaac, which differs from others yet known, and which will be more fully treated further on.
There is nothing to indicate, unfor- tunately, whether the play was performed in the splendid old manor-hall at Brome, or, may be, in the neighbouring town of Diss, where the two gilds of St.
Nicholas and Corpus Christi may possibly one or both haye undertaken to set it forth for friendly links between Stuston and Diss see after, pp.
Imagination has room to speculate alike on the place and the actual actors in the performance, who probably did not differ greatly in their acquirements from those of contemporary plays in other parts of England, such as at Coventry, Chester, and York A single play, requiring but a small body of players, might be more easily set forth in the rural towns of the country-side of East Anglia than the large collections, which required the combined efforts of the craftsmen in the greater midland cities.
It is, however, a fact that this is the first specimen of a mediaeval religious play from this part of England. Of the second class, the articles of a court leet and court baron are of course well known; the copies of deeds and grants do not appear to be connected with names or places in the neighbourhood, but may be entered as forms or models; whether genuine charters or not they do not offer any special interest.
The names of the Prioress of Flixton, and the town of Diss, point to the first explanation, while, on the other hand, a comparison of the other names with those in the lists for the "Taske" and the "Church Duties" show that they are those of men belonging to Stuston.
The customs of common-right were various, as is well known. I must leave the explanation to those better versed in local usage.
The meaning of the word felson itself is obscure. It seems to be of Danish or Anglo-Saxon origin, from the root feil, German foele, Anglo-Saxon vendible, that which is to be bought; the second syllable being another form of aam or sonie, like as in jetsam, flotsam.
The "duties belonging to the church," probably established by ancient custom, were of three kinds, plow-shot or plough-scot , sometimes called plow-alms Moti.
These sums usually come together for one tenant in some cases only two of the charges are named , and it will he observed that the money paid for a "lock" was a halfpenny farthing, that for a plow-land one penny, and that for a curtilage one halfpenny.
Thus, the holders were assessed to the church on the curtilage or land immediately round the tenement, and the arable land according to measure, each separately.
No dates are given with any of these felson, task, or church lists, which must have been made as memoranda for the guidance of the manorial officers.
Lastly, the accounts of Bobert Melton, to whom this book probably belonged when he wrote them in its blank leaves, are one more contribution to our knowledge of prices in a part of the country whose chief wealth lay in its barley crops.
Melton was, perhaps, a well-to-do farmer. He was evidently a man of some position and property, from the fact that several tenements are mentioned under his name as liable to felson, task, and church dues.
He was evidently also a trusted friend, perhaps the steward of the Comwallis family, for he was co-executor with William and Robert Comwallis to their eldest brother John, who died in , lord of the manors of Brome, Stuston, Okely, and Thranston.
The agreement with Boger Page of Scole p. The food-stuffs bought and sold in the accounts are wheat, barley, mesclin, malt, oats, and pease ; the two latter only occur once.
Mesclin is mixed com, usually wheat and rye: It is still known in the two latter forms as a kind of furmenty or sweet dish made from mixed com, and forty years ago maslin bread was much relished on good Yorkshire tablea The mixed corn appears to have been sown and threshed together: Tramais, Dragge or dredge was another name for mixed com, oats and barley or oats and wheat; perhaps the same also as mesclin.

In the lists of plays performed at Beverley and Newcastle, too, this subject has a place; and there is little doubt that it was a favourite piece, both on account of its human and pathetic interest, and its capabilities of conveying instruction, either of the mystic-typical kind familiar to the early centuries, or of a directly religious and moral nature.
