This family was seated at Bridgenorth,

this tradition however, though at least 200
years old, (for it is borne out by a pedigree
of the date of 1623,) seems not a very pro-
bable one.

was living 1623, had two sons, who both at-
tained the mitre in Ireland; George, the
eldest, was bishop of Cloyne, and d. 1653,
