confirmed by Richard I. Sir Walter left a son.

Sir William de Lucy, the first of the Charlecotes who bore

and distinguished family of Lucy, so prominent in the records
and annals of England.

the reign of Henry VII., commanded a division of the royal
army at the battle of Stoke. His great grandson.

Sir Thomas Lucy, of Charlecote, M.P. for co. Warwick,
who rebuilt, 1 Queen Elizabeth, the Manor House with brick.
as it now stands, was knighted a few j'cars afterwards, and is
commemorated as the prosecutor of William Shakespeare for
deer stealing in his park at Charlecote. The Poet has satirized
the Knight under the character of Justice Shallozo. Sir

ment, which is still in Charlecote Church), dau. and heir

Lineag'e. — Lumsden of Pitcaple is a branch of Lumsden
of Cushnie. The founder gf this family Thomas de Lumsden,
a cadet of Lumsden of that ilk, in co. Berwick, received from
Duncan. Earl of Fife, a grant of the lands of Drum and
Gouland, in co. Fife, and of Easter and Wester Medlar co.
Aberdeen. The precise date of this transaction is unknown,
the charter having been lost (Robertson's Index, p. 58); but
it must have been previous to 1353, in which year the Earl
died. Thomas de Lumsden was Vice-Comes of co. Fife, and
his name appears frequently in charters and other documents
connected with co. Aberdeen in the middle of the 14th century.
A safe conduct was granted to him by Edward III., dated
Woodstock, 29 May, 1349 (Rotuli Scotiae 1729), probably to
negotiate the ransom of the Earl of Fife, who was taken
prisoner at the battle of Durham, 1346, and returned to Scot-
land 1350. The lands he acquired were inherited by his de-
scendant,

Tho.mas Lumsden, of Couland and Medlar, who had two
sons, I. James, who s. to Couland; and ii. Robert, of Medlar,
d. 1480, leaving two sons,
Thomas, m. Marjory Gordon, and d. 1495, leaving one dau.,
Margaret, to. 1st, William Johnstone, of that ilk, and 2ndly,
William Forbes, of Corsindae.
Robert, to. Isobel, dau. of John Forbes, of Terpersie, andt?.
1546, leaving nineteen children. Of these, the eldest son
was Thomas, who was killed at the battle of Flodden, leav-
ing two sons, James, d. 1550, and John, who eventually s.
to the property. This
John Lumsden, of Cushnie, who d. 1588, had by a 2nd mar-
riage, with Elizabeth Menzies, three sons and one dau.,
John, his heir, m. Janet, dau. of John Mortimer, of Craigie-
var. and had a son, Robert, who d. s. p.

ing a son, Robert, of whom presently.
