• This mention of a " kinsman John Hastings, goldsmith," serves to fix tiie testator's
parentage. The pedigree of Hastings in the Visitation of London (1633-1G34) shows a

[These Hunlockes so evidently belonged to the family of that name settled
at Wingerworth, Derbyshire, that it has seemed worth the while to add the fol-
lowing notes of wills relating to that family. H. F. W.]

younger children and payment of his debts. The overplus to be divided

Afterwards he is referred to as Sir Henry Hunlocke, knight and Baronet.
From a Sententia which follows it appears that the name of his widow was
Dame Marina Hunlocke. 30 May 1642. Fairfax, 66.

William Michell of Wingarworth, Darby, Esq. 21 May 1662, proved
23 July 1663. My daughter Marina Michell and such child or children as


my wife hath now conceived. My daughter in law Marina Huulocke. My

[Pedigrees of the Hunlock or Hunlocke familv of "Wingerworth mav be
found in Harl. MSS. 1093, 1153, 1486, 1537 and 21Gl\ Add. MSS. 6670 and 6674
and Egerton MS. 996. They differ so much as to be rather unsatisfactory. The
pedigree given in Harl. MS. 1153 shows that Christopher, brother of the first
Henry (who was buried at Wingerworth 20 October 1612 and whose will I have
noted) had sons Thomas, Philip, Nicholas, Henry, Edward and Christopher.
Of these Thomas married Judith daughter of William Denham of London, aud
had issue John, Denham and Thomas Hunlock. No Francis is given, aud this
statement is confirmed by the will of Henry Hunlocke the elder (just referred
to) who in 1610 speaks of John, Denham and Thomas as the three sons of " my
cousin Thomas Hunlocke." As the Heralds' Visitation was made in 1611, the
year after the date of that will, I would suggest that Francis Huulocke, the
painter stainer of London, though probably a brother of John, Denham and
Thomas, was not born until after that pedigree was entered. H. F. W.]

Rose Beawe widow, late the wife of Richard Beawe of London, gen'
deceased, her will made 30 April 1579, proved 17 June 1579. I give and
bequeath unto the children of my daughter Oliff Bnlkley, now wife unto
Mr. Edward Bulkley, clerk, Doctor of Divinity and Preacher at Odell in
Bedfordshire, fifty pounds of mine now being in the hands and custody of
my brother Dr. Overton, which fifty pounds, with the profits thereof for
two years ended at the Feast of All Saints last j)ast Anno Dni 1578, I will
shall be equally divided by my executor after my death unto the children
of my said daughter Oliff Bulkley. Provision against death of any of
these children before marriage or coming to the age of eighteen years. To
my daughter Pheabe all my goods, household stuff, apparell, linen and bed-
ding which I now have and do occupy at this present about me, which I
will shall be after my death, in convenient time, delivered by my executor
unto my said daughter Pheabe if she be then living and a widow ; and if
she then continue and live with Thomas Kiddall, her husband, I will then
the same goods &c. shall be delivered unto her sister Oliff Bulkley. safely
to keep to the use of her sister Pheabe until she do overlive her said hus-
band, if God will so permit. If she die before her husband then my daugh-
ter Oliff shall keep them to her own use.

I make and ordain my executor my very good and approved friend Mr.
William Le Gris Esq. for whose care, pains pud travail which I am well
assured he will take in the accomplishing of this my present testament and
last will I do give and set over unto him and to his youngest daughter Mis.
Ambrosia Le Gris one bond or statute of three score pounds which was set
over unto me for a good debt by Walter Buckland gen 1 , now living, in part
payment of two hundred pounds which the said Walter gave unto me for
redeeming of my thirds which I then had out of his lands in Somersetshire
and Wiltshire, which he now enjoyeth and hath as next heir unto Richard
Buckland his father deceased, sometime my husband, which statute I now
have in my keeping, the moiety of which, after it be recovered, I will shall
be delivered aud paid unto the said Mrs. Ambrosia Le Gris at the day of


her marriage or at her age of eighteen &c, or if she die &c. then equally to
her sister Mrs. Jane Le Gris, towards the advancement of her marriage,
and her eldest brother Mr. Henry Le Gris, towards the maintenance of
him in his study at Cambridge. Bakon, 25.

[The mention of Bucklands in the foregoing will led me to look up that name
a little. I found (amoug others) the following wills.]

Richard Buckland of Clerkenwell, Middlesex, Esq., 24 August 1558,

my manor of Brickfnstone alias Melstone. My sister Elayn Jones. My
cousiu John Buckland. To brother Walter all my houses at Clarkeuwell.

Chaynay, 4.

[It seems evident that Mrs. Bulkley -was not a daughter of Richard Buckland.
While hunting up the Bucklands I had also looked for the name Overton, on the
assumption that Mrs. Rose Buckland aU Beawe belonged to a family of that
name. Among the wills which I found was the following, which I have no
doubt is the will of Mrs. Bulkley's maternal grandmother and godmother.
There still remains to look up the Erbye or Irby connection. — H. F. W.]
