April 28. Died, aged 64, the Hon. Sir Henry Dymoke, of Scrivelsby
Court, CO. Lincoln, Bart. Hereditary Champion of her Majesty : being the
17th who had held that office, including his ancestors the Marmyons. (See
the History of the Family of Mar my on, by T. S. Banks, 1817, 8vo.) It has
been remarked that two of Sir Henry's ancestors officiated at three corona-
tions. Sir Robert Dymoke at those of Richard III., Henry VII. and
Henry VIII , and his son Sir Edward at those of Edward VI., Mary, and
Elizabeth. Sir Henry Dymoke also might have officiated at three. At
that of George IV. he took the place of his father (who was then living),
the Rev. John Dymoke: at those of William IV. and her present Majesty
he was ready for the service, but this time-honoured ceremonial was dis-
pensed with. By her Majesty's favour he was, however, advanced to the
dignity of a Baronet, by patent dated September, 1841 : the Champions
having heretofore usually received the honour of Knighthood. As the
remainder of the Baronetcy was merely in the usual terms to the issue
tnale of the body of the grantee, and he had no son, the title has become
Extinct with him. The family, however, continues, and is now I'epresented
by Sir Henry's brother, the Hon. and Rev. John Dymoke, Rector of
Scrivelsby and Roughton, who has a son and heir apparent, Henry Lionel
Dymoke, esq. born in 1833.

The inheritance of the office of Champion, however, does not necessarily
descend in the male line, but is dependent on the tenure of the manor of
Scrivelsby, wliich Is held In Grand Serjeantry by the performance of that
service. If that estate has actually passed to the Rev. John Dymoke — and
that such is the fact we find asserted in Burke's Peerage and Baronetage
for the present year, it may be concluded that the office of Champion has
accompanied it. The late Baronet has left an only daughter — Emma-Jane,
married in 1861 to Francis Houlton Hartwell, esq. eldest son of Sir Bro-
drick Hartwell, Bart., and she has three daughters.

he inherited the estates of Buckleys in the island of St. Cbristopher, W.I.
and the Lyth afoi'esaid, to take the name of Buckley before Mathew.

May 19. Died at Easton Lodge, Essex, aged 79, the Right Hon, Henry

nard, sometime secretary to Lord Burghley, having purchased the manor
of Little Easton. His eldest son Henry was created a Baronet at the
foundation of that order in 1611, created an Irish Baron in 1620, and Lord
Maynard of Estaines ad Turrim alias Little Easton in Essex in 1627. His
descendant Charles the sixth Lord was the last of the elder male line of the
family, and on his death in 1775 the dignities above mentioned expired ;
but he had been in 1766 created Baron Maynard of Much Easlon and
Viscount Maynai'd of Easton Lodge, with remainder to his collateral heir
male, the descendant of Charles brother to the first Lord, and whose son Sir
William Maynard had been created a Baronet in 1681. It was Sir Charles
Maynard the fifth Baronet of the second creation who inherited the Vis-
county in 1775 ; and, dying in 1824, was succeeded by his nephew Henry,
now deceased, with whom the titles again become Extinct. (See a memoir
