PEERAGE OF ENGLAND.




RUSHOUT, LORD NORTH WICK.



This family is said to be originally of English extraction, but
long since went into France, and there settled) where we find
Thibaut Rouhault, SieuT de Boismenart, from whom this
house derives its descent: he lived in the year 1300, and about
that time married the Lady Jane de la Val, daughter of Guy
Comte de la Val, of Britany, one of the most ancient houses in
France, by whom he had one son, and one daughter, Tristan, and
Jane,

Tristan, Sieur de Boismenart, (a person of great merit) mar-
ried Peronelle de Thouars, daughter of Louis, Viscount de
Thouars, and by her had only one son named John ; Jane was
married to Robert Dreux, Baron, and Seigneur D'Esneval, by
whom she had issue.

John, Sieur de Boismenart, only son of Tristan, was a valiant
knight, served long in the army, and distinguished himself upon
several occasions j he married the Lady Jane de Bellay, daughter
of the Prince D'yvetot, and by her bad two sons, viz. Joachim
and Abel (who was governor of Valogne», and served in the
French army with great reputation, and is much applauded by
Monstrelet), who died issueless.

Joachim, Sieur de Boismenart, de Gameches, and de Chatillon
began to make a considerable figure about the year 1439, being
at that time first master of the horse to the Dauphin of France,
afterwards King Louis XI. and served him in his wars almost
throughout the whole course of his reign, and was by him ad-
vanced to the dignity of a mareschal of France, great master of the



LORD NORTHWICK. 573

horse of France, and assisted in that quality when Louis XL made
his public entry into Paris; he was also governor of Paris, con-
stable of Bordeaux, and the government of Berberac, ofMont-
quion, of Blau, and of Fronsac He rendered his Prince great
service; and is recorded by the French historians in their cata-
logues of illustrious persons, as one of the greatest captains of
those enterprizing times. He married the Lady ranees de Volle-
veire, daughter of the Marquis de Buffet, and by her had three
sons, viz. Aloph, Thibaut, and John.

Alolph, eldest son to the mareschal Gamaches, married Ga-
brillede Montrigny, of the house of Sal vert, and by her had issue
only one son, named Alolph, who married Jaqueline de Soissons,
called Moreul ; from whom was lineally descended, after several
descents, the late Marquis de Gamaches, who resided at Gamaches
in Picardy.

Tkibaut, the second son of the mareschal, was governor of
Hesdin, and was highly signalized for his courage : he married
Jane de Sauveuse, heir of Sauveuse and Cangny, and by her had
only one daughter, married to the Seigneur de Ja Brosse.

John, the youngest son of the mareschal de Gamaches, went
into Flanders, where he settled, and married Jaqueline de Goderie
(as appears by the descent taken out of the herald's office at Brux-
elles, where he is called Jean Rushaut), and by her had a plenti-
ful issue.

From whom, in a direct male line, after several generations,
was descended, ^ 1

John RusHouT, of May lards in Essex, Esq. a merchant in
London, who coming to England was naturalized, 10 Charles I.
He died October 28th, l653, aet. sixty, having had two wives.

First, Anne, daughter of Joas Godschalk, of London, Esq.

Second, Elizabeth, daughter of Sir John Finet, Knight, relict
of John Godschalk, of London, Esq ; by the last he had no issue.

But by the first he had several sons, who all died s, p. except

James, of whom hereafter.

And three daughters ; first, Abigail, married to Sir Abraham
Cullen, of Upton in Warwickshire, Bart. ; second, Catherine,
married, first, to Sir John Maynard, of Tooting in Surrey, and
Iselham in Cambridgeshire, Knight ; secondly, to Francis BuUer,
of Chillingham in Cornwall, Esq. ; and third, Anne, married to
Sir William Adams, of Sprowslon in Norfolk, Bart.

and in the second parliament for King George I. was elected a re-
presentative in parliament for Evesham in Worcestershire, which
corporation he rrprtsented till 1768.

In the reign of King Ge)rge II. he was a lending opponent of
Sir Robert Walpole ; and particularly di^tinguished himsf-lf agaiast
the excise bill. On the fall of that minister, he was made one of
the lords of the treasury; and soon after Treasurer of the
Navy. He lived to a great age, dying February 2d, 1775, ast,
ninety-one. Dr. Na-,h says, " his memory, good-humour, and
politeness, were then in their full bloom ; old age, which in ge-
neral is not to be wished for, seemed in him rather an ornament
than a burden. His mother was a zealous protestant, and by her
apprehensions of popery on the accession of James II. is supposed
to have hastened his birth."

He married, October, I72g, Lady Anne Compton, fourth
daughter of George, Earl of Northampton, and by her, who died
1766, had issue one son, John ;

And two daughters; Elizabeth, married to Richard Myd-
