IGlO, in the lifetime of his uncle, lord Cob-

WooTTON, in his Baronetage, 1727, says,
there is a tradition that this ancient family
is descended from Wolstan, earl of Ellenden,
(now called Wilton,) who m. the sister of
Egbert, the first English monarch. An-
other asserts, upon a relation of sir Walter
Littleton, chancellor of Lichfield, that one

of the Dixies )n. the da. and h. of Wolstan,

of Wolstai}, CO. Warwick, about "JW years
since; and in confirmation of the same, a
piece of alabaster was, many years ago,
found under a pillar in Wolvey church,
near Wolstan, with this inscription in o'd
characters, viz., WoUfan Dixie, in the year of
our Lord IKX). But Dugdale, in his " War-
wickshire," intimates, that Wohtan was so
called (quasi Wulfricston) from some Saxon
possessor named Wulfric. The first men-
tioned in the Herald's visitations is

Wolstan Dixie, who was seated at Catworth,
CO. Huntingdon, about the reign of Edward


L Sir WOLSTAN, at the breaking out of
the rebellion, 1(>41, appeared early in the de-
fence of the king, and was a great sufferer
for the royal cause. When the gentry of the
CO. of Leicester contributed £55,()42 for his
majesty, sir Wohtan gave himself towards
that Slim, £ 1835 ; for which signal service
he had a warrant for a baronet's patent;
but through the confusion of the times, it
