berty, when he knew it was impoflible for them, as being difarm'd,
to make the leaft Efforts againft the Proteftants. — Whilft the
Prince was triumphing, thro' his increafing Numbers, the King's
Affairs were in a declining Condition : 'Twas too late to make A-
mends for the Breaches he had made with his People. In his go-
ing to meet the Prince, to engage him, his Nofe, of a fudden, bled
to fuch a degree, that proved very difadvantageous by prolonging
the Time: Lord Churchill (afterwards Duke of Marlborough) left
him ; whom he had advane'd to greateft Honours. Prince Geofge
of Denmark, follow'd: The Princefs (afterwards Queen A wig
was oblig'd to live with her Husband, and defert her Father: His
Queen fore'd to fly beyond Sea; and he himfelf to fail from his King-
dom, andfeek Protection in France, under the King of that Country.
Thus a mighty Prince, who would grant a Toleration in Religion,
to every Body, was fore'd away from his Crown and Dignity, for his
own Faith ; becaufehe would eftablish Cf)<U, which was contrary to
the Conftitution of his Kingdom ; and mult have proved, in the End,
deftructive to thofe, for whofe Sake he feemed to plead for fuch Li-
bertyof Confcience: A Liberty, which would foon have been deny'd,
if the Counfel of Father Petre, and other Catholicks, had prevail'd,
in what they fo ardently fought for, to the Ruin of their Prince.

[r] The Kirft of January, King James arriv'd at Amb/c/eufe,
in France. — Sir John Hotham was made Governour, on the Se-
cond, tho' in his old Age, being a Perfon of whom the Prince well
approved; more fortunate than his Predeceffors : But he died the
26thof March following. — King William, having heard of the gal-
lant Behaviour of Captain Copley, made him Lieutenant-Gover-
nour; and, perhaps a Colonel, as I find him call'd by fevcral Wri-
t ers> — The Tenth of January, William Gee, and John Ram/den
Efqrs.appear'd at the Convention. — The Twenty Third, Mr. George

\k~\ The abovefaid Mayor was made one of the Privy-Coun-
cil. The Sheriff, dying in his Office, Mr. William Tfwmfon was
elected for the Time. On Tuefday, Feb. 1. this Year, was a vio-
lent Storm, which blew down Pinacles from St. Mary's Church.
The Day after, Mr. Maijler was chofen Member of Parliament, a-
long with Sir William St. Quintin. — A raging Fire happen'd oh
Monday, the i ith of July, which held for above a Day and Night,
upon which Account fome Houfes were blown up : The Lofs, fuf-
tain'd hereby, was reckon'd to exceed 20000 Pounds. — The 3d of
December, the Rev. Mr. Charles Mace was chofen Vicar of Holy
Trinity Church. This Gentleman's* Father dy'd in the Pulpit : For
as he was preaching in F^rX-Caltletothecondemn'd Prifoners, (who
were to be executed the Day following) one of them was fo har-
' den'd, as openly to interrupt, and even defy him, in that Part of the
Difcourfe, that hinted at his + Crime: Which unparalell'd Auda-
city fo deeply piere'd the tender Minifter to the Heart, (whofe melt-
ing Oratory was pathetically employ'd in moving the unhappy
Wretches to repent of their crying Sins, whereby to obtain Divine
Mercy) that he inftantly fainted away, dropt down, and departed this
Life, to the great Sorrow of all thofe Perfons, who were Witneffes
of his Holy Life, and innocent Converfation.

[ /] Mr. Mai/Zerdied,and M.r. Rogers was elected Parliament Man.

\_m] A violent Storm happen'd on the 14th of February, which
blew down two Pinacles of Holy Trinity Church. — In this Mayor's
Time, the North-Bridge was built.

* It was about the Year 1711, when the Rev. Mr. Charles Mace, >*\\, thus de-
parted this Life.

t The Criminal had barbarously murdered a Clergyman, who was hi> Wife's Uncle;
and bury'd him in a Field, where he was found by the Scratching of his own Dog : Yet
the Wretch received the Sacrament as a Token of his Innocency ; faid that .Mr. Mace's
Death was a Judgment upon him for fuppofing him guilty ; and did not confess till the
Moment he was going to be turn'd off the Ladder.

[;/] In this Mayoralty ( [72J) the Town-Dyke was dreffed.

[0] On the ;th of April, Sir William St. Quintin, Bart, and
Mr. Rogers, were chofen Parliament-Men. — The Mayor, above-
mention'd, ( William Wilberforce,ox Wilberfofs, Efq;) was elected
Alderman on Wednefday the 25th of April, in Mr. Perrots Mayoral-
ty; on which Day, Mr. William Mafon was chofen Vicar of Holy
Trinity Church. — The Sheriff dy'd in his Office, and was fuc-
ceeded by Mr. William Williatnfon.

[/>] On Jan. the 23d, Mr. rowle was elefled Member of

Parliament, in th< Room of Sir William St. Quintin, deceafed.

[</] The Friendly Society was begun in Augufi this Year.

having been hung up but a little while before.— The [8th of

a great Scarcity this Year: Even Beans were fold, in the Weft-Ri-
ding, at 4.0s. a Quarter ; and Corn would have been miferably
dear, had not his Majefty, in Commiferation to his poorer Subjects,
been fo gracious, as to take off the Duty of foreign Grain : Here-
upon, in our Diftrcfs, we were fupply'd with Ship-Loads, from Ita-
ly, Flanders, Poland, and other diftant Parts, to the unfpeakable
Comfort of many Houfe-Keepcrs, who might have been undone,
without the King's kind Condcfcenfion, thus to relieve them in
Time of their great Neeeffities.

[/"] Myton-Gate Bridge was entirely built this Year.

[/] In this Mayoralty, Beverley- Gate was entirely finifhed. —
On the 17th of July, Baron Hall, and Juftice Page came to J Lull ;
before whom one Partrick was condemn'd for ftcaling fcveral Pie-
ces of Plate, which belong'd to Mr. Mowld; But he made his Ef-
cape : Since that Time, (about the Year 1732.) a mo ft mifcrablc
Wretch was executed, for ftabbing his tender Wife in the Breaft
with a fliarp Knife, of which Wound flic foon after died.

[ // ] The Sailors Society was held, I think, about this Time.

[w] The RELIGIOUS SOCIETY, being begun, it occafion'd
fome Difputes, about their often receiving the Holy Sacrament :
But the Controverfy foon ended in a peaceable Manner, thro' the
Endeavours,as was said, of a Gentleman, who went under the Name
of Philanthropos. This Society is eminent for its Religious Zeal ;
and efpecially, its well-order'd Charity, in refpect to poor Peoples
Children, for whofe Education they take particular Care. — The
Wall at the South End was erected this Year.

[.i'] The above Worfhipful Mayor departed this Life the 20th of
September, the Year following : Alderman John Collings was there-
fore fworn to ferve the few remaining Days 'till the next Election ;
(the Day after Miclunluias,\\\\(i\\ Sheriffs, Chamberlains, err. are ac-
cuftom'd to be chofen, tho' not fworn 'till the Festival of St. Luke, the
1 8th of Oclober) by which Means, that Gentleman became a third
time Mayor of Hull, to his great Honour and Reputation.

As we are now in this Mayoralty, the following Account of what
was found about March 24, 173', (by a young Damfel, Daughter
to a Smith, near the Roman Wall in Northumberland, hard by a
little purling Stream) will, I hope, not be unacceptable, as it is a
valuable Relique of Antiquity. The Defcription is thus. // is
a Piece of Silver, now the Property of Mr. COOK, Goldfmith in
Newcaftle-on-Tyne, who bought, a ml highly cjlccms it) fashioned like
a Tea-Board, 20 inches long, and 15 broad, weighing about 148
Ounces. ' Tis hollow* d about the Depth of an Inch ; the Brim fat,
an Inch and Quarter in Breadth; flower' d with a J 'ine full of Grapes,
and other Curious Devices. The Figure of A\io\\o is on the right Side
of the Plate: A Bow in his Left Hand, and a Phyfical Herb in his
Right, under a Canopy, borne by 2 Pillars of the Corinthian Order:
Near his left Leg a Tyre, or Girdle ; under that an Heliotrope, being
an Herb, which is f aid to turn round, or follow theCourfe of the Sun;
at his Feet a Python : This la pi. was a mou herons Serpent produced by
the Farth after Deucalion's Flood, which Apollo slew with his . 1 r-
rows, and was thereupon called Pythius, in Honour of which the Py-
thian Games were inftituted. Near the Right Hand Pillar, is ano-
ther : but made after a different Manner, with a Sun for its Capital.
Again/? this, a Priejlefs, looking at Apollo, fits upon a Tripod, or
Three-footed Stool : Beneath her Feet is an Altar, near to which a
Stag lies upon his Hack. Xigh the Priejlefs. is a beautiful Woman,
with her Head unveil 'd, having a Wand, with a Ball on the 'Top, in
her left I fund. .War her. is the Figure of the Goddcfs Minerva,
with a Helmet upon her Head ; in her left Ha ml a Spear, pointing
with Iter Right to a fufpos'd lluutfman, on the other Side of a large
Thi Figure of the Headof Medufa, one of the < rorgons, {who
is fa id to have turned the People near the Tritonian Lake into
Stones, for which lecollated by Perfeus, Son of Jupiter and

Danae) was on the Breafl of the Goddefs; under whofe Feet was an

Altar, and near it a Wolf looking up to a Man, who has an . I

in his Right Hand, with a Bow in his Left. In a c orner, beneath

him, is the Figure of a Rock, with an I T rn in the Middle, which f cents

to flow with Waters. All thefe Similitudes are rats' d large, with a

jujl Symmetry of ( 'all- Work t without any Sim of l. 1 I ven :

I98 Memorable Perfons bom in KlNGSTON-UPON-HULL.

On the Back indeed feem a few Scratches of a Punchy or Chijfel :
The Three firfl are, 1. 1*. X; but the reft are unintelligible. Under
the Middle of it (before the Smith broke il off ) was a low Frame,
which had been all of a Piece, about 7 Incites long, 4 broad, 1 and \
deep: All which may exereife the Curiofity of the moft occult Per-
fons, who are well learned in the Roman Antiquities.

But, to return to Kingflon-upon-Hull — As to memorable Per-
fons born therein, (tho 1 Scarborough claims too the Honour of his

Nativity) one was Sir J< IHN L.\\\s< >\ ; who, from mean Parentage,
and a poor Sea-Lad, was advane'd to be an Admiral, and obtain'd
the Honour of Knighthood, lie gloriously fignaliz'd himfelfat
Sea, againft the Dutch, about the Middle of the laft Century. I
have the Copy of his Letter, written in a very religious Style, from
on Board a large Ship, called, The GEORGE, to the Honourable
LUKE ROBINSON, Efq; Member of Parliament, whofe Seat was
at Pickering-Lyth, Yorkshire. This valiant Admiral was ever
faithful to his Truft ; contributed to the Reftoration, when it was
in his Power lawfully to do it; and fore'd the Algerines to make
an honourable Peace with the Chriftians: But at length he was
slain, in the Year 1665, by a Shot in the Leg from a Dutch Man of
War. — Another Perfon of Note, born here, was Dr. Thomas
JOHNSON, a great Phyfician, slain at Bajinghoufe, fighting for King
Charles the Firfl, on whom this Epitaph was written.

Hie JoriNSONE, y"rtYr.r : fed fi Mors cedcret Herb is
Arte fngata tua eederet ilia tuis.

This Paraphras'd.

JOHNSON ! (O learned Dodor !) here Thou'rt laid

In Death's cold Arms, to whom all muft fubmit ;
But if that Death had Phyfick's Art obey'd,

Thou would'ft efcape, by overcoming it.
The King of Terrors muft have fall'n to Thee,

Who now has plac'd thy Soul in happy State,
Where Thou fhalt live (when lie no more shall be)

A glorious Saint, beyond the Power of Fate.

Several other eminent Perfons have been born in this Town :
Which has given the Title of Earl to ROBERT PlERPOINT, of
Holme, (whole valiant Family came in with the Conqueror) Yif-
count Newark, created fuch the 25th of July, 1628. King Charles
the Firft us'd to call him, The good liar! of KINGSTON. He is
faid to have been taken Prifoncr at Gainsborough ; and slain by
fome of his own Friends, upon the Ifnmber, who thought to refcuc

Succeffor, Henry, was made Marquefs of Dorchcflcr, Anno 1645,
which Title dy'd with him, in 1680, as having no Heirs : But the
Earldom went to Robert PlERPOlNT, Son of Robert, Son of William
of Thoiccrsbv, fecond Son of Earl Robert ; who departing this Life
unmarried, was fucceeded by his Brother William, A. D. 1690.
And he dying without Iffue, the Succeffion pafs'd to Evelin, his
