II. Ethel Emily, m. Douglas C. Richmond, Esq., Barrister-

III. Mary Catherine.

Lineage. — The tradition in the family is that when
Philip of Spain came over to England to marry Queen Mart,
he brought with him a favourite follower, a DonEskrino. On
Philip's return to Spain (the account proceeds), this follower
declined accompanying him back, and Philip gave him the
arms of Spain to wear and a grant of land. From this
ancestor the family inherits the original three-sided silver
seal, a reliquary, and a miniature portrait of himself. It is,
however, more probable that the Serines of Warhigh are of
the ancient family of Skerne of co. Durham, which settled
afterwards in Yorkshire, Essex, and Dorset. A branch of the
Skrine family once possessed the estate and rectory of Claver-
ton, Somerset, on the Bath side of the river Avon, opposite
to Warleigh ; this was sold to Mr. Allen, of Prior Park, but
the greater part has been recently again purchased by Mr.
Henry Duncan Skiine. The manor of Warleigh was pur-
chased in 1634 by Henrt Skrine, who had held the same
property as copyhold for many years previously. His grand-
son,

Richard Serine, Esq. of Warleigh, m. Elizabeth, only dau.

ampton, and had issue, a son, Henrt, and two daus., Sarah, vi.
Robert Still, Esq. of Mere, Wilts, and Elizabeth, d. v.nrn.

Henrt Serine, Esq. of Warleigh, who in. 1st, 1787, Mari-
anne, eldest dau. of John Chalie, Esq. of Bedford Square,
