ELIOT, LORD ELIOT.

This family flourished for eight or ten generations in Devonshire,
before they transplanted themselves rnto Cornwall, and had
matched into several considerable families in that county; as the
Sigdens, Cotlands, Bonviles, Sumasters, Fitz, Careswells, &c.
Anno 1433, Walter Eliot was returned among the gentry of
Devonshire.

And to this fanoily, as it should seem by the arms, was allied,
Sir IliCHARD Eliot, made by King Hen. VIII. one of the Justices
of the King's Bench, who by his will, dated 1520, bequeathed his
body to be buried in the cathedral of Salisbury,^ of which church
Robert Eliot died Sub-dean, anno 1502,''

The pedigree entered in the visitation of Cornwall, made in
1620,*^ commences with

John Eliot, who by his wife, Jane, daughter of John Bonvile,
of Shute, in com. Devon, was father to

Edward Eliot, of Cutland, in that county, who married Alice,
daughter of Robert Guye, of Kingsbridge, and had issue two
sons;

First, John Eliot, nf St. Germains, in Cornwall, whose first
wife was Grace, daughter of John Fitz, of Tavestock, in Devon-
shire j and his second, Mary, daughter of John Bruin, of Pli-
raouth.

Second, Thomas Eliot, married to Joan, daughter of John
Norbrooke, of Exeter, by whom he had issue four sons; First,
Richard. Second, Hugh. Third, Walter. And, Fourth, Ed-
ward. Also an only daughter, Alice.

He was buried in St. Germain's church, June 24th, 1609, leaving

of Hache, an only son.

Sir John Eliot," Knt. born and baptized at St. Germain's, April
20th, 1500; who became a gentleman commoner of Exeter Col-
lege, Oxford, in 1607, where he continued two or three years,
and then removed to the inns of courtj and May 10th, 16I8, re-
ceived the honour of knighthood from King James I. was elected
representative for the borough of Newport, in Cornwall, to the
last parliament of that reign, and was re-elected to the first par-
liament of King Charles I. which being soon dissolved, he was
chosen for St. Germain's to the ensuing parliament, and in 3 Car. I.
was Knight of the shire for Cornwall,

Sir John being a great opposer of the court, was appointed by
the House of Commons one of the managers of the impeachment
of the Duke of Buckingham, for which he, with .Sir Dudley
Diggcs, the other manager, were committed prisoners to the
Tower, but were soon after releasedj on March 1st, 162S, Sir
John Eliot, and other members of the House of Commons, were
committed close prisoners to the Tower, for refusing to answer
before the Privy Council for what was said or done in the Parlia-
ment j and on May 29th following, an information was exhibited
against them in the Star Chamber, for their undutiful speeches in
the late Parliament j in Michaelmas term following, upon an infor-
mation in the King's Bench, they pleaded to the jurisdiction of the
court, but were over-ruled, and afterwards adjudged to be impri-
soned during the King's pleasure, to give security for their good
behaviour; and Sir John Eliot was also fined two thousand pounds:
they were afterwards offered to be released on their making sub-
mission, which they refused, and Sir John Eliot died in the Tower,
and was buried in the chapel there.

By the inquisition taken after his death, it appears that he died
November 27th, 8 Car. I, 1032, leaving John, his son and heir,
then twenty years and forty days old.^ Sir John married Redi-
gund, daughter and coheir to Richard Gedy, Esq. by whom he
