(Durham Bonkc). Sir John's only dau. Sibella, was given in

the Lord Dignam, in Normandy, and from this union sprang
the old Baronial house of Bertram of Mitford, the head of
which, Sir Roger Bertram, was summoned to pailiainent by
Henry 111. in 1264. From this union are also desjccnded the
Dukes of Portland, who are now in possession of Botha! Castle,
CO. Northumberland, derived from their maternal ancestress,
Sybil Mitford. — Evidences Newminster Abbey Jteyistcr £oo!ce).
Sir John de Mitford was s. by his brother,

Matthew de Mitford, from whom, lOtb in succession,
descended another

Sir John de Mitford, of Mitford, Knight of the Shire for
Northumbeiland, who had, by deed of feoffment, a grant to
himself and his heirs male, from David de Strabolgi, 2nd
Earl of Athol, dated at Newton Hall, 20 May, 1369, of all his
lands and tenements in the ville of Molesdon, to be holden of
the grantor and his descendants by the annual payment of
sixpence. He was commissioned with John Widdrington and

Margaret, m. Thomas Pye, of Newminster.

Isabell, m. Cuthbert Ogle, of Choppington.

He d. 5th Queen Mary, and was s. by his .son,

Robert Mitford, of Mitford. The Harleian MSS. call this
.gentleman "nothus natus," and make "Annie Wallis, of
Akeild." mother of himself and his three sisters, but " this
statement," says Hodgson, in his History of Northamber-
land, "was returned to the Heralds' College by Anthony
Mitford, of Ponteland, and signed only by himself. His objects
were to represent Robert, son of Cuthbert, as illegitiaiate, and
to obtain his estate, in both of which he failed." .Sir Isaac
Heard took much pains to investigate the matter, and dis-
covered that the return was altered in the next visitation, and
that Robert Mitford's legitimacy was not only established by
satisfactory proof, but that his arms were certified without a
difference. Robert Mitford to. Jane, dau. of John ^iitford, of
Seighall or Seghill, and had issue,

I. Cuthbert, his heir, m. Mary, dau. and heir of Christopher
Wharton, of Oflerton, co. Durham. These two (i. both in
