I. OwsLEt ViVCENT FtDEI-L, 6. 10 Scpt. 18S5.

II. George Richard Francis, b. 1 Feb. 1889.

Mr. Rowley, who s. to the family estates on the
death of his grandmother, 31 Jan. 1886, is a Justice
of the Peane for Huntingdonshire and Lincolnshire,
and is a Magistrate and Deputy Lieutenant for
Rutland.

Liineag'e. — The family of Rowley of Rowley recorcled in
the Herald's Visitations of Salop, has a common origin with
the Rowleys of • endring Hall, Suffolk, deriving its surname
(in the old spelling Rouloice or Rowlaw) from Rowley in the
parish of Worfield, Salop — which was for many centuries its
ancient seat. Few familesevcn in a county so rich in geneal-
ogies as Shropshire, have been so fully illustrated as that of
Rowley of Rowley, in all its branches. Mr. Hardwick, the
Shropshire genealogist, having bestowed upon the elucidation
of its pedigree, even more than his usual critical research.
The origin of the name is discussed in Notes and Queries III.,
S., Vol. 34, where it is shown that Rowlowe does not mean the
"King's Mount " as surmised by Mr. Hardwick, but that '•'■Raw
is a Saxon word meaning ' rest ' (the modern German ruhe and
the Danish ro), and /ow meaning a mount; Rowlow is there-
fore the ' rest mount' — the Cemetery, and a beautiful and poetic
word it is" — a definition which the physical aspect of this
immemorial dwelling place of an ancient line seems to confirm.
Mr. James in his history of Worfield says " the original name
of this ancient family was Roulowe, and it dates probably from
Saxon times retaining for 500 years the lands of Rowley. . . ."
Roger de Roulowe, with his companion Guido di Baliol carry-
ing the standard of Simon di Montford's army, was slain at the
battle of Evesham (seeCronaca di Melrose, andBLAW's Sarons'
)i'ars}, and another Rowley fought at Agincourt.

William de Rodlowe, who, in 1252, was on the roll of Guild
Merchants of Salop — which conferred certain pi-ivileges in
Shrewsbury upon the owners of estates in the county — was
father of

William de Roclowe (living 4 Edwabd III., 1330) who m.
Rose, widow of Robert deAsterhuU— a township near Rowley —
and had a son,

John de Rodlowe or Rowley, who was living 24 Edward
III., m. Matilda who was living as his widow 50 Edward III.
Her eldestson Nicholas de Rowley, who rf. before Michaelmas
3 Heni > VI., 1424, m. Margery, dau. of Robert de Hounde-
slowe (Onslow)— and from this marriage descended the m;iin
line of Rowley of Rowley, until the estate was carried to the
family of Shallcross of Shallcross, in the High Peak — by the
marriage in 1656 of Anne, dau. and heir of Roger Rowley,
Esq. of Rowley and Shrewsbury, Bariister-at-Law of Gray's
Inn, with Ricliard, eldest son of John Shallcross of Shallcross —
from whose descendants Rowley passed into the hands of

1723 by Henry Davenport, Esq., in which family it still re-
mains. Tlie 2nd son of John de Rowlowe, and Matilda his
