Liineage. — In old charters the name is variously spelt
Scharp, Scharpe, &c., but not without the "c" till the 18th
century. The earliest charter of the lands of Houstoan, or
Hostaine, or Houstain, bears date about 1560, when it is sup-
posed that Houstoun was acquired by Sir John Scharp, Knt.,
an eminent Lawyer and King's Advocate. Before this, the
family possessed the lands of Ballindoch, Craigie, &c., in oo.
Forfar ; how long this tenure reaches back we have not yet
ascertained. These lands in co. Forfar they continued to
hold till some time in the 17th century, when they parted with
them, and were confined solely to co. Linlithgow. During the
wars of Charles, they took the royal side. Scharp, of Hous-
toun, bore a "mourning standard" at the funeral of Arch-
bishop Sharp, but whether the Archbishop and Houstoun were
related seems uncertain. At the time of the Union, the then
Schairp, of Houstoun, was one of the two knights for the shire
of Linlithgow in the last Scottish Parliament. He spoke and
voted against the Union.

The great-great-grandfather of the present representative of
this ancient family,

Thomas Shairp, Esq. of Houstoun, had, by Janet his wife,
two sons, Thomas, his heir, and Walter (Sir), Consul at St.
Petersfcurgh. The former,

Paeeinson-Shaep, Henry, Esq. of Blindlmrst
and Fairsnape, co. Lancaster, in. 20 July, 1886,
Adelaide Frances, widow of Francis Walker
Hutcbins of Villa Bontau, Nice, and dau. of Rev.
William Henry Williams, holding large estates in

America. Mrs. Parkinson-Sharj), by her first hus-

Parkinson of Blindhurst and Fairsnape, co. Lancaster, a
family of great antiquity and high position in that shire,
descended, originally, from a son of Perkin Featherston-
haugh, of the North, recorded in the Herald's Visitation,
as Perkin-son, and assigned the arms of Fetherstonhaugh.

In 1617, CHRisTOPHEa Parkinson, Esq. was chosen Steward
of the Forest of Bowland or Holland in Yorkshire, which
forest adjoins that of Bleasdale. This Christopher was the
younger son of Ralph Parkinson, Esq. of F'airsnape, by Grace,
his wife, dau. of Robert Shuttleworth, Esq. of Hacking, co.
Lancaster, through which marriage the family became con-
nected with the Hoghtons of Pendleton.

Robert Parkinson, Esq., Christopher's elder brother, m.
1st, in 1606, Mary, dau. of Jerome Assheton, Esq., whose
father was lialph, 4tli son of Sir Richard Assheton, of Middle-
ton, by Ann his wife, dau. of Sir Thomas Strickland, of Si-
zergh; and 2ndly, in 1616, Ann, dau. of Sir George Singleton,

Esq. of Stayning, by Mary, his wife, one of the co-hcircsses of
John Iloghton, Esq. of Pendleton, brotherofSir Richard Hogh-
ton, Bart, of Hoghton Tower.

In 1702, Christopher Parkinson, Esq., the immediate des-
cendant of the first named Christopher, devised, by will dated 8
July, in that year, lands at Hazlehurst, in Bleasdale, to his
kinsman, Richard Parkinson, Esq., and others, in trust, for
the endowment of Admarsh Chapel, and school at Bleasdale,
and for the use of the poor there for ever.

About two centuries ago a considerable portion of the
Bleasdale estates passed to the Cliftons of Lytham, with an
heiress of the Parkinsons. These estates were sold by the
Cliftons in the beginning of the present century, to Thomas
and William Birley, of Kirkham, by whom they were again
alienated by sale to William Garnet, Esq. of Manchester,

The present representative of this ancient race— the Parkin-
sons of Bleasdale — Jane, the wife of William Sharp, Esq. of
Linden Hall, co. Lancaster, and only child of William Taylor,
Esq. of Borwick, by Jane his wife, dau. and co-heir of Henrt
Parkinson, Esq. of Woodycar Hall, who was male heir and
representative of the Parkinson family. By virtue of this
marriage the Fairsnape and Blindhurst estates came to the late
William Sharp, Esq., and have now devolved on his son,
Henry Paekinson-Sharp, Esq.

(ifitmiln of Sljarp.

Among the most ancient of Cumberland families were the
Salkelds. So far back as the year 1336, Sir Richard de Sal-
keld obtained from the Crown a grant of the Manor of Corby,
on the attainder of the Earl of Carlisle. With Sir Richard's
direct male descendants, Corby remained until 1502, when Sir
Richard Salkeld, Governor of Carlisle, died in possession of
the estate (buried in Wetherall Church, at Corby), leaving five
daus., his co-heirs, one of whom m. Salkeld, of Whitehall, a
member of a younger branch of her paternal family, and was
