RIDDELLS OF NEWCASTLE AND GATESHEAD.

The Riddells of Northumberland and Durham trace their lineage back
to the same Norman ancestor as do the families of that surname in Scot-
land ; indeed, they were originally one clan dwelling along the borders
between England and Scotland, the boundary in early times between the
two countries not being very well defined. From Primside, where Ger-
\ ase Ridel, who was head of the Roxburgh family, settled, it is only three
miles down the vale of Beaumont to the present English border, and dur-
ing the time of the first generations of this family they probably could
have lived on either side of the line without being questioned about their
allegiance. It has not been clearly ascertained at what date the ancestors
of this branch of the Ridel family established themselves in England, but
thev were in early times situated at Norham* and T\vizel-on-the-Tweed,
some cadets having the custody of the ancient castle at the former place.
Surtees, in his "History and Antiquities of Durham," mentions three of

* Norham Castle was originally built by Ralph Flambard, in 1121. It was a
hone of contention between the English and Scotch for centuries, and was nearly
destroyed by David, King of Scots, in 1138. Cambden describes the castle as
having ''an outer wall of great compass, with many little towers in the angle next
the river, and within, another circular wall much stronger, in the centre whereof
rises a loftier tower." Part of the ruins have been undermined by the river, and
little remains except the great keep-tower, seventy feet high, and the double gate-
way, which led to the bridge over the ancient moat. A view of this old castle,
where the Riddells held custody, recalls the opening lines of Marmion : —
" Day set on Norham's castle steep,
And Tweed's fair river, broad and deep,

And Cheviot's mountains lone ;
The battled towers, the donjon keep,
The loop-hole grates, where captives weep.
The flanking walls that round it sweep,

In yellow lustre shone.
The warriors on the turrets high,
Moving athwart the evening sky,

Seemed forms of giant hight :
Their armour, as it caught the rays,
Flashed back again the western blaze
In hues of dazzling light."

In an old history of Scotland the following relative to Norham Castle was found :
" The provisions are three great vats of salt eels, forty-four kine, three hogsheads
of salted salmon, forty quarters of grain, besides many cows, and four hundred
sheep, lying uuder the castle-wall nightly ; but a number of the arrows wanted
feathers, and a good Fletcher (arrow-maker) was required."

the successive heads of this family, Dukentinus de Ridel, Patricius de Ri-
del, and Walter de Ridel, who appear to have held the lordship of the
villa and manor of Whickham, in the county palitine, during the thir-
teenth century. The documentary records relating to the early genera-
tion are somewhat obscure and disconnected, and the printed pedigrees
do not agree as to the head of the family.

FIRST GENERATION.

Sir Jordan (le Ridel 1 (1), was a son of Auskittel 1 (1), of the main
line of the family denominated " Rid dells of Riddell," of Roxburghshire,
Scotland, whose pedigree see in this work. His mother was evidently a
sister of Jordanus le Flemming, and hence the name "Jordan" in the
Ridel family. This man was a witness to a document in Scotland as early
as 1165, and he was probably born as soon as 1140. He was a prominent
man in his day, and called to various responsible offices. He was a knight
and sheriff of Northumberland; acquired large estates at Tilmouth, in
Durham, and held the moiety (lordship) of that manor during the reign
of King Edward I. He married and had issue, but his wife's name does
not appear.

SECOND GENERATION.

"Walter de Ridel" (1), son of Jordan 1 (1), succeeded to the lordship of
the villa and manor Whickham. He was Sheriff of Northumberland, — a
very important office at that time, — and many times employed by his sov-
ereign on responsible commissions in the thirteenth century. He married
and had issue ; wife's name not known.

THIRD GENERATION.

Sir William de Ridel 3 (1), son of Walter 2 (1), was a knight. He
was appointed Sheriff of Northumberland in 1314 (seventh and eighth
years of King Edward II), by patent from Bishop Kellaw, Constable of
Norham Castle, and with others of his kinsman held the custody of that
fortress. He was likewise employed in many public services by the king.
We are also told that William was in possession of the whole manor and
villa of Tillmouth,* of the manor and villa of Twizel,t of the hamlets of

* Gurdex Kiddell owned Tillmouth House in 1272; whether he was a brother
or uncle of Sir William we do not know.

t Twizel Castle, situated on a wooded height above the east bank of the river
Till, is now a gaunt ruin eighty yards in front, with gaping windows, and round
towers at the angles. It was more than forty years in building; the castle-gallery
measures ninety feet by twenty-two. In the hollow below the castle is an ancient
bridge, a most picturesque and lofty semi-circular arch over the Till, more than
ninety feet in span and forty-two in height. A little below the bridge, and under
a rock twenty feet high, is St. If' leu's Well, a petrifying spring; and a little north-
west of Twizel, is Tillmouth. This <rlen. where the ancient Ridells owned exten-
sive lands, and defended themselves, with their retainers, in the strongholds of
Norham and Twizel. is romantic and delightful, with steep banks on each side, cov-
ered with copse, particularly with hawthorn. The scenery, and fountain from
which the Ridells slaked their thirst, are beautifully mentioned by Scott, in " Mar-
mion," as follows : —

" From Flodden ridge

The Scots beheld the English host

Leave Barmore-wood, their evening post,

And heedful watched them as they crossed
The Till by Twizel Bridge.

High sight it is. and haughty, while

They dive into the deep defile :

Dudhoe and Old Grindon, and two parts of the manor of Upsettlington,
on the north bank of the river Tweed, about a mile south-west of Nor-
ham. These estates, held of the Bishop of Durham by an annual rent and
suit at court of Norham, were inherited by his three granddaughters, of
whom hereafter, and other heirs.

FOURTH GENERATION.

William de Ridel 4 (2),* eldest son of William 3 (1), acquired his
father's estates and holdings, served in capacities of trust, and died dur-
ing the reign of King Edward III, leaving his three daughters co-heirs.
Wife's name unknown.

Hugh de Ridel 4 (1), second son of William 3 (1), was living in the
fourth year of King Edward III (1329), and became the representative

head of this family.

FIFTH GENERATION.

Isabell de Ridel 5 (1), eldest daughter of William 4 (2), was one of
her father's co-heiresses, and became the wife of Allan Claveringe.

Constailtilie de Ridel 5 (1), second daughter of William 4 (2), was
co-heir with her sisters to her father's estate. She was married to Sir
John Kynges (or Kingston), a knight, and member of one of the oldest
and most respectable families.

Beneath the caverned cliff they fall,

Beneath the castle's airy wall.

By rock, by oak, by hawthorn tree,

Troop after troop are disappearing ;

Troop after troop their banners rearing,
Upon the eastern bank you see
Still pouring down the rocky den

Where flows the sullen Till,
And rising from the dim-wood glen,
Standards on standards, men on men,

In slow succession still,
And, sweeping o'er the Gothic arch,
And, pressing on, in ceaseless march,

To gain the opposing hill.
That morn, to many a trumpet clang,
Twizell, thy rock's deep echo rang;
And many a chief of birth and rank,
Saint Helen, at thy fountain drank.
The hawthorn-glade, which now we see
In spring-time bloom so lavishly,
Had then from many an axe its doom,
To give the marching columns room."

* This Sir William Riddell was Constable of Norham Castle, being constituted
such by Richard Kellow, Bishop of Durham, as well as bailiff of all his lands be-
longing to it ; but the year is not given. In 1312. the first year of his being bishop,
that prelate, as appears by a charter in the College of Arms, granted him several
indigencies with respect to Norham. He freed him from paying suit at court, and
all castle-rent that should be due to him during his life. At the same time he agreed
to render him the sum of ten pounds yearly, as one of his knights. When Bishop
Kellow surrendered Norham Castle to Edward II, for the term of three years, in
order that it might be the means of better defending the Marches, that prince en-
trusted the important charge of it to Sir William Riddell, as the bishop had done.
In the year 1315, Sir William was appointed High Sheriff' of Northumberland. To
this office was also annexed the governorship of Newcastle. In the year 1321,
King Edward II, who seems to have held him in high esteem, addresses him as
constable of this castle, and at the same time Andrew de Harcla, and some others,
as sheriffs and commanders in the northern parts, to be ready to co-operate with all

Joan de Ridel 6 (1), third daughter of William 4 (2), was co-heir with
her sisters of her father ; married Gerrard Widdrington, a member of the
same family as the Widdringtons who have since formed alliances with
the Riddells, whom see.

Thomas de Ridel 5 (1), a son of Hugh 4 (1), succeeded to his father's
possessions and the representation of this family; married and had
issue, wife's name unknown ; made his will in the year 1358.

SIXTH GENERATION.

Thomas de Ridel 6 (2), only known son of Thomas 5 (1), was his
father's heir; married and had issue a son, of whom hereafter. His Avife's
name does not appear.

SEVENTH GENERATION.

Thomas Ridell 7 (3), a son of Thomas 6 (2) succeeded to the paternal
estates, and the representation of this family. He married the daughter
and heiress of a knight named Harbottle or Harbotal, of Northumber-
land, and had issue, of whom hereafter. His name is spelt with the
double letters and the omission of the intermediate "de."

EIGHTH GENERATION.

John Ridell 8 (1), a son of Thomas 7 (3), succeeded as his father's heir;
married and had issue, of whom hereafter. He was Sheriff of Newcas-
tle-on-Tyne, in 1478.

NINTH GENERATION,

Thomas Ridell 9 (4), eldest son of John 8 (1), was his father's successor;
married Eleanor, daughter of Ralph Claxton, and sister of William Clax-
ton, Esq., of Wyneyard (she was afterward married to Edward Swinburn,
of the family of Swinburn, subsequently allied by marriage with the
Riddells), and by her had issue, of whom hereafter. He was mayor of
Newcastle-on-Tyne in 1510, 1521, and 1526, and " won, by his prudence
and conscientious attention to public duties, the esteem of his constitu-
ency."

Peter Ridell 9 (1), second son of John 8 (1), probably died young.



the forces they could muster against the insurgents. The great service performed
by them, and their steady attachment, it is well known, enabled Edward to com-
pletely crush the insurrection headed by the Earl of Lancaster, his own kinsman,
and abetted by many powerful nobleman.

Sir William was employed on several important occasions by King Edward. In
1318, he was joined in commission with two others, to cause forty . . to be distrib-
uted to the knights who had sustained losses in Northumberland by reason of the
incursion of the Scots. In 1320, his majesty, by a writ directed to Sir William,
delegated to him the power of admitting to the peace any of the Scotch who should
be willing to return to their allegiance ; provided they gave proper security for their
flood conduct in future. The following year, Sir William and others were empow-
ered to grant letters-patent for a safe conduct to John de Pilinor, who was expected
to come to treat on the part of the Scotch king.

When King Edward III mounted the throne, he placed no less confidence in Sir
William, whose fidelity to his father had been so conspicuous. In the very first
year of his reign he commanded Sir William with others to cause the terms of truce
with Scotland to be faithfully observed, and to see that the offenders were pun-
ished. He did not, however,' live long to enjoy the favor of his sovereign, for he
died in 1328, leaving three daughters, his heiresses. A part of Sir William's lands
were held during life, by Hugh Ridell, a kinsman of Sir William.
