Lineage. — The family of Pott was for long seated at
Pott Hall, in the county of Chester, and Hundred of Maccles-
field, and a pedigree was entered, with the arms, in the Visita-
tion of Cheshire in 1663, and in that of London in 1634. Db.
Ltsons, in his History of Cheshire, describing the township of
Pott-Shrigley, writes, "The hamlet of Pott gave name to a
family of gentry, who had an estate here for many genera-
tions, now (1810) represented by Charles Potts, Esq., of Chester,
Pott Hall, which had belonged to the family of Pott, passed
successively to Edward Swan," &c. From the Visitations of
1634 and 1663, we find that, in the latter year, Edmund Pot, of
Pot, aged 23, was head of the family, being the only son and
heir of Edmund Pot, who d. 1643, by Dulcibell, dau. of John
Price, who was eldest son and heir, by Ann, dau. of Edmund
Jodrell, of Eardsley, of Francis Pot, of Pot (d. 1640), who was
eldest son and heir of Francis or John Pott, of Pott, by Ann,
widow of Mr. Trafford, and dau. of — Dickenson, who was son
and heir of Roger Pott, of Pott, by Anne Sutton, of Rushton, co.
Stafford. The elder line ended in an heiress, but the male de-
scent was carried on by Thomas Pott, Esq. of Pott Hall, who
was father of another Thomas Pott, who to. Maiy, dau. of —
Norbury, Esq. of Norbury Houses, Macclesfield, and had issue,
a son,

Thomas Potts, Esq. of OUerton Hall, near Knutsford, m.

The family of Weardale, Weredale, Wardle or Wardell, as
the name is variously written, is one of considerable antiquity
in CO. Durham. Taking the name from the district of Wear-
dale, branches of it were early established at Brancepeth,
Easington, Chester-le-Street, Fishburn, and elsewhere in the
Palatinate, and in several of these places the name continually
occurs from the beginning of the 14th century. In 1415, we
find one John Wardale, of Brancepeth, in the train of Neville,
Lord of Brancepeth, on his expedition to France shortly before
the battle of Agincourt, and he is presumably identical with
the John Wardell who settled in France in 1417, and to
whose descendant, Ann Wardell, of Caen, in Normandy, a coat
of arms was allowed by Heralds' College in 1584.

Throughout the 15th and ICth centuries, wc find several
members of this family occupying important positions, espe-
cially ecclesiastical otKces under successive Bishops of Durham,
and allying themselves with the Glaxtons, Greys, Davisons,
and other good north-country families. F'rom the first half
of the IGth century, an exact pedigree of the line of which
we treat can be clearly traced.

In the year 1520, William Wardell was holding lands from
the Bishop of Durham in his manor of Auckland.

In 1532 and in 1547, Christopher Wardell wa.s holding
the same with other lands, in the manor of Easington.

In the 2nd year of Elizabeth, William Wardell was
holding lands in Easington, and was collector of the Bishops
rents there. He was s. by

Christopher Wardell, Gent., who was holding lands there
in 13th Elizabeth, and was buried at Easington, 17 March,
1610. Christopher Wardell was s. by his son and heir,

George Wardell, of Easington, Gent., and also of Mains-
forth and Thrislington, co. Durham, where he purchused an
estate in 1614. He nt. Agnes, widow of Thomas Trewhctt of
Easington, Gent., and was buried at Easington, 7 Oct. 1633,
being s. by his eldest son and heir,

George Wardell, of Easington and of Edmondsley, Gent.
He purchased the latter property in 1G32, and in 1635 was in
possession of land in Easington formerly held by his ancestor
WiLUAM Wardell. By his wife. Christian Sloddart (ni. 11
June 1605 : d. July, 1C36), he had issue, with four dans.,
five sons, viz..



I. George, of whom hereafter.

II Christopher, of East Edmondsley, Gent., s. to that pro-
perty under settlement made by his faiher in 1G34. bapt.
14 May, 1608; m. 3 July, 1631, Isabella Paxton, and had
issue. He d. in 1686 (will dated 1 July, 1685), and on the
death of his grandson, George Wardell, Esq. of East
Edmondsley, in 1761, the property passed through an
heiress to the Heed family (vide Surtees's History of Dur-
ham).

III. William, of Easington, Gent., bapt. 9 Feb. 1612; to. 21
Nov. 1637, Alice Fell (d. June, 1652), and on his death in
F^eb. 1662, he was s. by his only son and heir, Richard
Wardell, of Easington, Gent., whose grandson, Richard
Wardell, of Easington, Esq., in. in 1733, Mary, dau. of
Eobert Scurfield, Esq. of Sheraton Grange, co.' Durham,
and dying 1764, was s. by his only son and heir, tiichard
Wardell, Esq. of Easington, who, dying intestate and unm.
in 1775, was s. in his considerable copyhold and leasehold
property in Easington and elsewhere by his cou!-in and
heir-at-law, John Wardell, Esq. of Grossgate, Duiliam, as
below.

IV. Robert, Gent., of West Edmondsley, bapt. 17 Oct. J613.
The West Edmondsley estate remained in his posterity down
to the end of the first half of the present century, when, on
the death of his descendant in the 6th generation, Matthew
Wardell, Esq., of sporting celebrity, ii was sold to the Earl
of Durham.

V. Richard Wardell, bapt. 12 Feb. 1616.
