Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from The Ancestor, Vol. 12: A Quarterly Review of County and Family History, Heraldry and Antiquities When this twelfth volume shall have come to our reader s hands, the Ancestor will be an ancestor indeed, for as a quarterly review it is about to die and to join upon the bookshelves the magazines which have been before it. Our quarterly has for three years space shown itself fair and perdurable beyond all its kind. Its sale has probably reached a point beyond the sale of any such venture. Its readers, as witness a great file of letters, are satisfied and full of sympathy with the work. Few magazines have received such kindly notice and applause as has the Ancestor from its reviewers, to whom we offer our gratitude in this place, for the Ancestor had no claque and not one of our critics is known to us save in his criticism. The quarterly Ancestor therefore comes to an end whilst still full of blood and life. For two reasons it must needs die. Despite the growing interest in that most human form of archaeology which bids us search out our fathers and make ourselves familiar with the colour and detail of their lives and memorable doings, there has not yet arisen in England a body of antiquaries large enough to sustain amongst them by their pens a quarterly magazine of family history which shall combine with original critical research, matter that has interest for the larger public. Antiquaries as a class are busy men, and we saw the time drawing near when the Ancestor, an unsatisfied daughter of the horseleech, crying four times in the year for substantial articles and notes, would cry to deaf ears. And the hour has come when the editor himself has fewer hours in which he may sit in his editorial chair.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from The Ancestor, Vol. 9: A Quarterly Review of County and Family History, Heraldry and Antiquities The immortal Bob Acres in the Rivals is made to say, Think what it would be to disgrace my ancestors; to which his servant rejoins, Under favour, the surest way of not disgracing them is to keep as long as you can out of their company. Our ancestors are very good kind of folks, but they are the last people I should choose to have a visiting acquaintance with, and in reviewing my ancestors I cannot but heartily endorse the sentiments expressed. The first Sheridan, of whom there is no authentic record save a document preserved in the College of Arms at Dublin, was named Oscar OSeridan of Castle Toger, co. Cavan. His date is given as 1014, and he married a daughter of the O Rourke, Prince of Leitrim; from them were descended a high sounding roll of Princes of Leitrim, of Sligo, and of Cavan, a glorious roll of names unhampered by dates or evidences, in which the arrival of one Jane Atkinson as a bride of the late fourteenth century period, offends by its commonplace probability. After Jane the pedigree halts rather lamely, as though the course of the hitherto pure and undefiled stream of ancestry could not resume its flow of unbroken nonsense after meeting such a rock of middle-class nomenclature. But when facts are encountered, our pedigree may at least be said to begin happily enough with a celebrity. William Sheridan(1635-1711) was the first male about whom anything is known, and he attained a celebrity which no successor has ever attempted to emulate, for he became Bishop of Kilmore, and from an old print (reproduced) seems to have had the cast of countenance described by a descendant as a damned disinheriting one, A Sheridan bishop is not a personage one can contemplate with any gravity, and so we pass on to his son Thomas Sheridan, an Irishman of the most pronounced type.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from The Ancestor, Vol. 3: A Quarterly Review of County and Family History, Heraldry and Antiquities The earliest authentic information of the history of this family which has been associated for between three and four centuries with the counties of Hampshire and Wiltshire, is gathered from an ancient cartulary of 180 folios, bound in vellum and compiled in 1551 during the lifetime of its owner Richard Jerveys, mercer and alderman of London. From the pedigree on the first page we find that he was born in 1500 and that his father was Thomas Jerveys sometyme of Kidderminster. The next memorandum in this cartulary, or, as Richard calls it, his Book of Evidences, is as follows: - Memorandum that I Richard Jerveis of London mercer toke to wyffe Wenefride late the wyffe of William Stathum of London mercer and maried her the thursdaye the xxvj day in Octobre A dni. 1525 whiche was doughter of John Bernerd of London mercer and had isshues by the soveraunce of God these children as hereafter doth folowe by the said Wenefride Jerveis.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from The Ancestor, Vol. 4: A Quarterly Review of County and Family History, Heraldry and Antiquities; January 1903 The little village of Chawton lies some two miles from Alton along the London road. At this end Alton straggles, unlovely with gasworks and a modern church, but ends suddenly without villa outposts, and Chawton, a pretty village with cottages of the old fashion, is well reached by a road bordered with trees. Chawton House is an ancient one lying on the hillside beyond the village, the chief house of a manor, with a little church upon the slope below it. For some seven generations Chawton House was the seat of a Hampshire family of the name of Knight, which came to an end in 1679. Every succeeding owner has borne their name, and the continual failure of heirs and the appearance again and many times again of a new kinsman of the original stock to make his home in Chawton and to carry on the old name and shield is one of the most interesting stories to the genealogist and antiquary. The Knights were possibly men of the Hampshire lands. The name recurs at early dates amongst the witnesses to deeds, but it is frequent in many parts of the country. The arms as borne by the old house of Chawton were a green shield with a golden bend engrailed or bend lozengy as the later heralds came to style it; but the evidence of the shield is of little value, as the same or like arms were assumed by different families of the name after the haphazard fashion of Tudor armory. They were borne by an Edmund Knight who was Norroy King of Arms in the reign of Elizabeth, and they were also credited during the herald s visitation of London in 1634 to a family of Knights in Kent, London and Essex who had come from Calais, together with a crest of a demi-monk or friar with his hood pulled over his head and a lantern in his hand, a crest evidently standing for a figure of Night. Between the family of Norroy, the family from Calais and the family at Chawton no known connection exists.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from The Ancestor, Vol. 1: A Quarterly Review of County and Family History, Heraldry and Antiquities The writer of the following pages feels that a little explanation and a short apology is perhaps needed in presenting an account of his own ancestors to the general reader, and he trusts that the somewhat personal title of this paper may not forbid of its perusal. Two views entirely contradictory to one another are always held respecting any account of a particular family written by one of its members: the first is that the account may be interesting and that, at all events, it is probably well authenticated in every detail, and is therefore worth reading; the second, that the writer, blinded by that personal and egotistic interest which is inseparable from human nature, has inflicted, or has attempted to inflict, upon the public a collection of facts and fictions, truths and lies, all of which are equally uninteresting and equally unimportant to that reading public. In this case however the writer trusts that the former of these two views may be the one adopted, with the following additional qualifications moreover - that it is not here intended to write the history, pure and simple, of a single family, but that a family, which represents to us so much of English life in its past generations, and which through its members has been of some service to the nation in its time, may be the means of reviving for us the memory of men and things long since buried in the dust of ages and hidden in the almost impenetrable gloom that ever hovers o er the path taken by retreating Time.
