stock of Wcntworth Woodhouse, co. York, a family which has
been routed there from the earliest period to which the gene-

lands of Wcntworth Woodhouse coutinued to be the seat of
the Chiefs, and descended from sire to son, in an unbroken
series, till the succession of male heirs failed with William,

founded in several instances houses of rank and influence, the
Wentworths of Woolky, of Korth and South Elmsal, of
Bretton, of Weniworth Castle, of Netllested, &c. From the
North Elmsal branch descended D'Arcy Wentwobth, of
Argreagh, co. Meath, ancestor of tlie Wentworths of Fyans-
town, CO. Meath, and of the Wentworths settled at Vaucluse,
near Sydney, New South Wales.

Michael Wentworth, Esq., who purchased Woolley and
other lands in co. Yoik, 1599, from Francis W^oodrufTe, Esq.,
was son of Thomas Wentworth, Esq. of Mendhain Priory,
Suffolk, and grandson of Michael Wentworth, Cofferer to King
Henry Vlll., who was 2nd son of Thomas W'entworth, of
W^entworth Woodhouse, by Beatrix his wife, dau. of Sir
