Sir THOMAS-ELMSLEY CROFT, Baronet, F.S.A., horn 2 Sept.
1798, succeeded his father, sir Richard, 13 Feb. 1818; married^ 9 Sept.
1824, Sophia- Jane-I^ateward, only child of Richard-Lateward Lateward,
esq., of Grove House, Ealing, Middlesex, and has, Grace, b. 3 June 1826.

It has been remarked that this family
" presents one of the very few instances in
which property has descended from father
to son for more than seven hundred years",
and that "in almost every generation, from
the commencement of the 14th century, re-
cords exist of the public services of its re-

The name is undoubtedly Saxon ; and in
Doomsday Book, Bernard de Croft is stated
to have held the tenement of Croft in Here-
fordshire, which continued in the possession
of his descendants until the last century. In
1274, Roger de Croft was sub-escheator for
that county. Sir Hugh de Croft, lord of
Croft, was created a knight of the Bath, 33
Edw. I. ; was M.P. for the county of Here-
ford 1315; and in a contemporary roll of
arms he is said to have used the same bear-
ings as have been borne by his descendants,
but his ancestors bore that coat withotit the

His son, Hugh, was a justice of assize
1338, and was succeeded by his son, sir John
de Croft, who was frequently employed in
negotiations in Flanders, between 1402,
when he was captain of Merk Castle, near
Calais, and 1404. By Janet, 3d da. and co-
h. of the renowned Owen Glendower, he
had issue William, whose son, sir Richard,
was one of the most distinguished soldiers
of his times, and a zealous partisan of the
House of York. At the battle of Tewkes-
bury he took the Prince of Wales prisoner,
and'having brought him before Edward-, the
young prince was barbarously murdered,
though without sir Richard's participation
in the deed. He was sheriff co. Hereford in
tlie loih, and knight of the shire for that
county in the 17th Edw. IV. In 1 Hen.

VII. he was treasurer of the king's house-
hold ; and at the battle of Stoke, 1487, was
created a knight banneret : at the death of
Prince Arthur, 1502, sir Richard was steward
of his household; and d. very aged in 1509.

His son, sir Edward, was several times
sheriff of Herefordshire ; and was one of
the counsel to the princess Mary; he d.
1547, and was succeeded by his son, Richard,
the father of sir James Croft, whose name
so frequently occurs in the history of the
reigns of Edward VI., Mary, and Elizabeth,
as governor of Haddington, and lord de-
puty of Ireland, 1551 ; deputy constable of
the Tower, 1552; governor of Berwick,
1559; comptroller of the household, and
privy counsellor, 1570 ; knight of the shire
CO. Hereford 5th, 13th, 28th, 29th, 30th, and
35th Eliz., and a commissioner to treat with
the agents of the king of Spain at Bour-
bourg in 1588, Sir James d. 1591. Ed-
ward, his son, was M.P. for Leominster,
1571 and 1586, d. 1601, leaving a son, sir
Herbert, M.P. co. Hereford, temp. Eliz. and
Jas. I., who had four sons, of whom sir
William, sir James, and Robert were colo-
nels in the service of Charles I., and were
conspicuous for their eminent loyalty. The

son, and eventually h. of sir Herbert, b.

JOHNSON-EDEN, (late EDEN,) of West Auckland, co. Durham.

13 Nov. 1672^

Sir ROBERT JOHNSON-EDEN, Baronet, born 25 Oct. 1774, took
the surname and arms of Johnsok in addition, by royal sign manual,
1811, succeeded his father, sir John, 23 Aug. 1812.

This family was resident co. Durham for
several generations prior to the close of the
14th century ; and there is no reason to
doubt that the name is local, and derived
either from CaMe Eden, or Little Eden, in
the same county. We are unable to trace
the family to an earlier period than 1413,
when, by an inquisition of Thomas Lang-
ley, bishop of Durham, it appears that
Robert de Eden died possessed' of 3 mes-
suages and 10 ox-gangs of land, with their
appurtenances, in Preston-on-Tees, held of
the bishop in capite, by knight's ser%"ice.
He was succeeded by his son William, who
(L seised of the same estate, 1475 ; his son
and heir was Thomas Eden, father of John,
of Belsis, CO. Durham, esq., m. Elizabeth,
da. and co-h. of Perceval Lambton, of Dur-
ham, esq., by whom he had Robert Eden, of
West Auckland, and of Windleston, esq.,
where the family appear to have been resi-
dent from the commencement of the reign
of queen Elizabeth. He was living in 1575,
and 7n. Jane, da. and co-h. of John Hutton,
of Hinmcli, CO. Durham, by whom he had
John Eden, who d. about 1625, leaving issue
