WINGFIELD OF TICKENCOTE.

WiNGEiELD, John Maurice, Esq. of Tickencote
Hall, CO. Rutland, Lieut. Coldstream Guards, b. 1
Feb. 18G3.

Liineagre. — " Wingfield," saithANSTis, in his Register of
the Order of the Garter, "is a manor with an half ruinated
castle in Suffolk, which, as 3Ir. Camden writes, gave both a
name and a seat to a large family in those parts famous for
their knighthood and ancient nol.iiity; but though, in all
probability, the name might be originally taken from thence,
yet till some further discoveries be made, it p.iay be doubted
whether it was the seat of this family before the time of Sir
John Wingfield, since the patronage and advowson of that
place was in Sir Richard Brews, in 1302, 13'23, and 1329."
There are pedigrees of the Wingfields which give them posses-
sion of the Castle of Wingfield in the time of the Conqueror.
The present head of the house is Viscount Powerscouet. The
6th son of Sir Robert Wingfield, of Letheringham, Suffolk,
M.P., and his wife, Elizabeth Gousell.

CO. Northampton, represented Peterborough in Parliament, I
and 5 Queen Elizabeth. He rn. Margery, dau. of John
Quarles, Esq. of UfTord, d. 4 Feb. 1575-76, and was «. by hi3

from the township of Winstanley, near Wigan, co. Lancaster,
where the family was seated before the time of King John, in
whose reign Roger de Winstanley held certain lands in Win-
stanley which had descended to him from his ancestors. His
descendant, Edmund de Winstanley, married one of the
Standish family, 1370, and was connected in the female line
with the ancient and notable families of Worsley, Waller,
Langton, Faircleugh, and others. Sir James de Winstanley,
another member of this same family, was one of the Knights
attendant upon Edward the Black Prince, during his wars in
Spain. The last representative of the elder branch was one
of the poor knights of Windsor about the time of Charles II,
Younger branches of the family were settled atBlackley Hurst,
Billinge, and elsewhere in co, Lancaster, at Braunston, co,
Leicester, and in the city of London, About the time of
James I., a scion of this ancient stock was seated at Charnoek
Richard, not far from Winstanley, and had issue, by Frances
his wife (who survived him) a son,

Ralph Winstanley, gent, of Charnock Richard, m. and
