This iuiclcnt family of Beresford hath flourished for many cen-
turies in the counties of Stafford, Warwick and Leicester, and in
former limes wrote their name Bereford j being originally of
'' Beresford in the parish of Alstonfield in the first mentioned
county, whence spreading into those of Derby, Nottingham, Kent,
Lincoln, and city of London, a branch of the Kentish line re-
moved into Ireland, and was advanced to the honourable degree
of Baronet of that kingdom, in the person of Sir Tristram Bercs-
' ford, and to those of Baron, Viscount, and Earl, in his great
grandson Sir Marcus Beresford, Earl of Tyrone.

His Lordship's descent was directly derived from John de Beres-
ford, who was seized of the manor of Beresford (in old deeds

103/ (I Will. Rufus) and therein was succeeded by his son,

Hugh, who had issue
