Simon, m. and had three suns, Christopher, Robert, and
Peter (which Peter was father of Anthony Slingsby, created
a Bart, of England by letters patent, bearing date 23 Oct.
IJ.



1628, -which date has been usually given for the Xova
Scotia creation. Sir Anthony was Governor of Zutphen, in
the Low Countries, and U. 1630, when the baronetcy became
extinct. Kimber's conjecture as to the limitation of this
patent to Sir Henry, the 1st Nova Scotia baronet, is wrong,
lor no mention is made in Sir Henry's patent of his being
above the rank of a gentleman, nor is it to be supposed ho
would have had a second patent of baronetcy had he been
already a baronet;, and four daus., Anne, 7u. John Swale, of
Staveley : Marjory, m. Walter Pulleyn, of Scotton ; Isabella,
m. Thomas Lambton, of Harrogate ; and Elizabeth.
The eldest son,

Marmaduke, m. Elizabeth, dau. of Sir William Mallory, of
Studley, -widow of Sir Robert Staplcton.

nail, and was bur. in Knaresborough Church, 6 Feb. 1602.

Dorothy, m. Francis Tancred, of Pannall.

Anne, m. Christopher Meinell, of Holdenby.

Joanna, m. Thomas Norton, of Seacroft.

He d. in 1581, was buried in Knaresborough Church, 26 Sept.
in that year, and was s. by his eldest son,

Francis Slingsby, jji. Mary Percy, only sister of Thomas
and Henry Percy, successively Earls of Northumberland.
This lady d. 1598, aged 66, and he d. 1600, being buried by
his -wife, 4 Aug. m that year, in the Slingsby Chapel, in
Knaresborough Church. They both lie under a fair altar- tomb,
on which are their effigies recumbent, of the size of life. On
one of the folds of her dress appear the quarterings of Percy
and Lucy. It should be noticed that this Francis is commonly
called Sir Francis ; even Mr. Pennant has fallen into the mis-
take, but he is not called Miles, even on his tomb, and the
family evidences abundantly prove that he never was knighted.
The mistake has doubtless arisen from the Knighthood of his
son. Sir Francis. He had issue by his lady, four daus., who
all d. s. p., and

I. Thomas, who was drowned in the Nidd, while endeavour-
ing to save his servant, in 1581, aged 28.
