MoRRiTT, Robert Alexander, Esq. of Rolvcbr
Park, CO. York, b. 12 May 1878 ; s. his father 1890.

Lineag-e.— The dela Morrette family came originally fronj
Normandy, at the beginning of the 16th century. Monstrelet
mentions one of the family as Gentleman to Francis I. in
1514, and Sully mentions another in the household of Henry IV.
The old spelling of the name occurs in Selby Church on the-
tomb of Edward Morrette, who d. 1622. Eobert Morritt took
his degree in 1660, the year of the Restoration, and was son of
Morritt, of Brayton, near Selby, where the original family
property was situated, and sold to the Hon. Mr. Petre 1820.
In 16G1, Robert Morritt was Rector of Ryther; the estate
belonged to him, and he wa,s Lord of the Manor. The Ryther
estate still belongs to the family, but the manorial rights were-
sold to Sir William Milner. In the Rebellion of 1745, Mr.
Morritt, of Brayton, was put into possession of the estates-
belonging to many of the Roman Catholic gentlemen of the
East Riding, which he held until their troubles were over, and.
then restored to their owners, a trust of considerable moment,
for the honest performance of which his name is still held.
in veneration and gratitude by the Roman Catholic families.
The estate of Rokeby, co. Y'ork, which gave name to thfr
historic and chiv.alrous family of Rokeby, was purchased from
them by the Robinsons, who eventually, 1769, disposed of the
property to

John Sawret Morritt, Esq., eldest son of Bacon Morritt,
Esq. of Cawood, by his wife, Anne Sawrey, of Plimpton-in-
Furness. He m. Annie, dau. of Henry Peirse, Esq. of Bedalc
.and by her (who d. 6 April, 1809) left at his decease, 3 Aug.
1791, aged 53, a son and successor,

John Bacon Sawrey Morritt, Esq. of Rokeby Park, b. 1771,
B.A. St. John's Coll. Camb. 1794, M.A. 1798. He was one-
of the earliest and most extensive Greek travellers of his
generation, and after two years spent in the East, he returned
with his mind replete with classical information, and a taste -
for every liberal art. His two dissertations on the controversy
as to the site of Troy are familiar to every classical scholar.
He published also translations from the minor Greek poets,
and was author of articles in the Quarterly Review and of
various pamphlets. He sat in Parliament as member succes-
sively forBeverley,Northampton,and Shaftesbury. Mr. Morritt
was the chosen friend of Wilberforce, Sir Walter Scott, Sir-
Humphrey Davy, Sir William Gell, .Southey, Lockhart, W.
Stewart Rose, Payne Knight, and Henry, 3rd Earl of Hare-
wood. His friendship with Sir Walter Scott commenced in
1S08, from the introduction of Sir W. S. Rose and Lady Louisa
Stuart, and with a visit of Mr. and Mrs. Morritt to "Edinburgh,
some account of which was furnished by Mr. Morritt to Mr..
Lockhart, and is published in the life of the poet. The same
work contains more than thirty letters of Scott to Mr. Morritt,
and several of Mr. Morritt to Scott. He in. 1803, Catherine^
