Lineage.— The family of Myklethwayt, or Micklethwait,
has been seated on its own lands in the neighbourhood of
Barnsley, W.R., co. York, over six centuries. The name
indicates it to be of Scandinavian origin, and signifies in that
language " much land cleared from the midst of forest," and
may still be found in Norway as " Mykelwhet." Hunter, the
historian of South Yorks, says, from deeds he has seen, he finds
them settled at Micklethwait, in Gunthwait, parish of Peni-
stone, before the reign of King Edward I., and are still
possessed of good estates in the county, and later at Ingbirch-
worth, in the same parish, whence diverged many branches.

Elias, 4th son of John Micklethwait, of Ingbirchworth, was
a merchant in York, M.P. and Lord Mayor for that city in the
reign of James I., recorded his pedigree, and had his arms
confirmed to him at the Visitation of York 1626, by John
Burrough Miles, Norrey Knight at Arms, " as those found to
belong to the ancient family of Micklethwait, and as seen
ascribed to that family among sundry other arms of illustrious
people in these Northern parts " ; see Dugdale's Visit. I'orks.
by tilt Surtees Soc. From him descended the Micklethwaits of
Swyne in Holderness, a member of which attained an Irish
Peerage as Baron Micklethwait of Portarlington, and Viscount;
Micklethwait of Longford, now extinct; their estates passed
to the Micklethwaits of Taverham and Beeston, co. Norfolk.

At the hattle of Marston Moor, Elias, 3rd son of John
Micklethwait, of Ingbirchworth, commanded a troop of horse
under Lord Fairfax, who, in his memorial, speaks of him as
" a stout and honest gentleman," and was one of the principal
officers slain on the Parliamentary side. Of this family also
was the eminent physician. Sir John Micklethwait, M.D.,
President of the College of Physicians, and Physician-in-
ordinary to King Charles II. His father. Rev. Thomas Mickle-
thwait, Rector of Cherry Burton, was one of the Westminster
A.ssenibly of Divines, distinguished for his piety and learning.

In the 17th century a branch removed from Ingbirchworth
(where they held lands until a recent date) to Ardsley, parish
of Darfleld, W.R.Y., where William Micklethwait, of Ingbirch-
worth, TO. the heiress of the Whitleys, of The Manor House,
Ardsley, and became Lord of half that Manor; a century
later, the whole came into possession of this family by pur-
chase from Col. Mawhood, of The Old Hall there. The Mickle-
thwaits of Ardsley and of Pcnhein trace royal descent from
King Edward III., through the Baynes of Knowstrop Hall.
