liineag'e. — The family of Sanford is one of considerable
antiquity in the cos. of Somerset and Devon. The present pos-
sessor of Xynehead represents, through the marriage of Henry
Sanford, Esq. of Xynehead (who d. 1044_), with Mary, dau. of
Henry Ayshford, Esq. of Ayshford, Devon, the Ayshfords of
Ayshford, derived in lineal descent from Stephanusde Eisforde,
of Eisforde, in the reign of William the Conqueror. The
oldest Ayshford deed in possession of Mr. Sanford bears date
anno 43 Henry III., and relates to a final award of a piece
of land (still in Mr. Sanford's possession) between Perrel de
Sanford and Thomas de Ayshford. The existing chapel of
Ayshford is of the 14th century, but on repairing it, there was
found carving of the 11th and 12th centuries embedded in the
wall, showing the existence of an earlier building. The estate
of Ayshford appears never to have been sold. The oldest
Sanford deed in possession of the family bears date anno
1 Hexrt IV. The estates were at that time in the neighbour-
hood of Dulverton. The manor of Brook Sanford formed part
of the parishes of Exton and Winsford, in Somerset, but
about 1600 the family became possessed of the manor of
Kynehead, upon which they have ever since resided. The
name and arms are seen on a tomb in the Temple Church,
London, as those of Gilbert Sanford, who appears to have
given his land to the Knights Templar in the reign of Henrv
II. His son, Gilbert Sanford, in the reign of King John,
seems to have been connected with the Knights Templar,
tiiough not one of them. A record in the Heralds' College,
liOndon, shows that this Gilbert, who was feudal Baron of
Sanford tenvp. Henry III., was Chamberlain in fee to Eleanor,
Queen of Henry III. His son, Gilbert Sanford, inherited
the manor of Ilormade Magna, co. Hertford, and held it by
serjeanlcy of service in the Queen's Chamber. His dau. and
heir, Alice, ni. Robert de Vere, 5th Earl of Oxford, and 6th
Hereditary Lord Great Chamberlain of England, and conveyed
the manor to her husband, whose descendants sold it temp.
Queen Elizabeth to Anthony Gage, citizen of London. His
representative, Daniel Gage, at the ?oronation of James I.,
claimed the office of Chamberlain to the Qneen, but failed to
substantiate his claim. Laurence, a brother of Gilbert, the
first Chamberlain, appears to have left the east of England,
and to have become connected by marriage with the Bassetts,
in Wales. The arms on the tomb of Martin Sanford, the first
of Xynehead, are identical with those on a deed made between
one of the Bassett family and Xicholas Sanford, respecting the
manor of Lequid in Wales, which are the same as those of
Baron Sanford. His son, Laurence, exchanged this manor for
that of Whitford, in Devon, with his son's wife, Alicia Bassett,
as evidenced by the Hundred Roll of Devon, temp. Edward I.

John Sanford, Lord of Brook Sanford, in Winsford and
Exton, Somerset, was po.=sessed of that manor in the reign of
EicHARD II., and held other lands in that co. and co. Devon.
His son and successor,

HcGo Sanford, of Brook Sanford, had, by Matilda his wife
