MORE OF LINLEY.

MoEE, EoBEET Jaspeb, Esq. of Linley Hall
and Larderi Hall, co. Salop, J.P., D.L., High Sheriff
1881, B.C.E., and M.A. ; M.P. for Salop 1865-8,



and for Ludlow Division since 1885 ; b. 1836 ; m.
1871, Evaline Frances, dau. of Eev. Canon Carr, of
St. Helen's, co. Lancaster, and has issue,

I. Thomas Jasper Mytton, 6. 1872.

II. Robert Henry, (/. 9 March, 1875.

III. Jasper Frederiik, b. 23 June, 1876.

IV. Richard Edwarc ee, b. 3 Jan. 1879.
I. Mary Dorothea, I. 14 March, 1885.

liineag'e. — This is a family of great antiquity, deriving
its name from the parish of More, near Bishop's Castle.

Richard (or, according to Camden, Thomas) de la More
came from Normandy with Duke William, and lost his life at
the Battle of Hastings, leaving a son.

Sir Thomas de la More, who, to use the words of Camden,
" builte faire houses at Launceston, in Cornwall; Halton, in
Cheshire ; and More, in Shropshire, giving to the latter place
his paternal name. " He m. Constance, dau. of Robert de
Uinfrevil, Lord de Tours, and was ancestor of the Mores of
More, CO. Salop.

The Inquisitions show that the estate of Linley was held by
grand sergeantry, the condition of the tenure being the supply
of 200 men as a body-guard to accompany the King when he
went into AVales. The Inquisition of Henry III. states that
the complement of men had been maintained by " Abavus ,"
the grandfather of the More then holding the tenure. One of
the family was companion of Edward II. in Berkeley Castle,
and wrote his life in Latin. Sir Thomas More, the Chancellor,
the Moores, Earls of Mountcashell, and the Moores of Barne,
derive from collateral branches of this family,

William More, Esq. of Larden, in 1491 (grandson of Richard
More, of More and Larden) m. Elizabeth, dau. of John Berkeley,
and had two sons, Edward, his heir, and Thomas, of Needham,
Suffolk, whose son, Robert, returned into Salop, and was of
Linley ; he was buried at The More, 20 March, 1603-4, leaving a
son, Richard, of whom presently. The elder son,

Edward More, Esq. of Lavden, 8 Henry VIII. , m. Elizabeth,
dau. of Edward Cluade, Esq. of Orleton, and had three sons,
I. Thomas, his heir; ii. John. Clerk of the Exchequer, father
of Sir Edward More, Knt. of Odiham, Hants ; iii. Eustace.
The eldest son,

Thomas More, Esq. who s. his father at Larden, m. and left
at his decease a son and successor,

Jasper More, Esq. of Larden, who d. I6I3, leaving three
daus. only (one of whom Hi. Samuel More, the Parliamentarian),
whereupon More and Larden passed to his cousin,

Richard More, Esq. of Linley, who thus re-united the
ancient estates of the family, being styled of More, Linley,
and Larden. He ra. a sister of Sir Thomas Harris, Bart, of
Boreatton; was High Sheriff, in 1619, and represented the
town of Bishop's Castle, in the Long Parliament of Charles
I. The part he took was decidedly anti-monarchical, and
he appears early among the most active partisans of the
Parliament within the county; but he d. 6 Dec. 1643, before
the triumph of his party, and was s. by his eldest son,

Samuel More, Esq. of More, Linley, and Larden, who took
a leading part in the civil commotions of Salop. He had
scarcely paid the last rites to his father, when he was called
upon to take command of Hoptoii Castle, one of the few
fortresses in Salop which were at that time in the interest
of the Parliament, and he gallantly sustained a month's siege,
with but thirty-one men against five hundred horse and foot.
Subsequently events crowned with success the party espoused
by Col. More, as he is generally called, and he was actively
engaged throughout the Interregnum in the internal regula-
tions of Salop, of which he was returned to be one of four
representatives to the Parliament summoned by Cromweli.
for Sept. 1656. His 1st wife, a dau. of his kinsman, Jasper
More, brought hira three children. By a 2nd marriage he had
three sons and four daus., one of whom, Anne, in. Sir John
Turton, a Puisne Judge of the King's Bench. The sons were,
I. RICHARD, his heir; ii. Thomas, M.D., d. unm. 1697, aged
69 ; III. Robert of Linley, who m. Sarah dau. of John Walcot.
of Walcot, Salop, and had an only son, Robert, successor
to his cousin, Thomas More, of More and Larden. The eldest
son,

Richard More, Esq. of More and Larden, b. 1627, M.P. for
Bishops Castle, from 1688 to his death, ten years after; m.
1659, Anne, dau. of Isaac Pennington, Lord Mayor of London
1043 ; by this lady, from whom he was divorced, he had no
issue. He m. 2ndly, Dorcas Owen, and had, with a younger
son, Richard, slain in battle 1709, another son,

Thomas More, Esq. of More and Larden, at whose decease,
.«. p. 1731, his estates passed to his cousin-german, only son of
Robert More, of Linley, 3rd son of Col. More,
