of the deceased William Paine.

(Pages 5, 6, 7, and 192.)

There were two Canons, the Rev. John Paine, who died in 1774, and the Rev.
Thomas Payne, who died in 1797, of entirely different families. Inquiries have not
been very satisfactory in completing the pedigree to any extent, but the following
helps to distinguish between them : —

The Rev. Thomas Payne, Vicar of Holme Lacy, co. Hereford =f=
Arms : Sable, a /esse between three leopards' faces or.

Rev. Thomas Payne, M.A. ; " Pastor of St. Cadoc in Breconshire ;" Rector of^Judith, da.
Llangattock, near Orickhowell, and Canon of Wells ; died 9 Jan. 1797, aged 81. of ... .

The following, from an inscribed tablet on the wall of Llanbedr Church,
except the line referring to himself, is from the pen of Canon Payne : —

" Sacred to the memory of Mary the Beloved wife of Henry Thomas Payne,
M.A., Rector of this parish and Canon Residentiary of S* David's.

"In pious hope she departed from this world of trouble on the 21 st of April

1828 aged 58.

" Here sleeps my Mary in her narrow cell,
How soon we all must follow, who can tell I
Christian I Remember that by God's decree
All nature sinks into eternity.

Look round this Hallowed Fane ; the scene displayed ;
Like Life's short landscape, mixed with light and shade,
Like Life itself, uncertain in its day,
For time rolls on and none can bid it stay.
The Hill, the Vale, the Wood, the brawling stream,
All lost in time shall vanish like a dream,
Nay, time shall come when Heav'n and Earth, destroyed,
Shall sink in chaos, and become a void.
All things shall perish, and shall man presume
To think himself exempted from the Doom ?
Presumptuous Mortal ! Soon must come the day
When Thou Thyself, the last great debt shall pay.
How many lie within this Holy ground,
Entranced in Death till the last trump shall sound 1
How many daily pass to Death,
To-day they breathe, to-morrow lose their breath ;
The Rich, the Poor, the Great, the Gay, the Brave,
All, all are hastening to the silent grave.
Then Man, vain Man, prepare to kiss the rod,
To hear thy Judgment and to meet thy God.

H. T. P."

" Also the above Henry Thomas Payne, died April 22 nd 1832, Aged 73."

In the same churchyard is buried the sister of Canon Payne, with a tombstone
bearing the following inscription : —

»}• In memory of Sarah Judith Payne, who died at Crickhowel the 15 th Feb.
1858, Aged 97.

Lord, now letteat Thou Thy servant depart in peace, for mine eyes have seen Thy Salvation. ȣ.

The following pedigree, compiled from the Cathedral MSS., adds some points to
Mr. Ellacombe's pedigree in the ' Herald and Genealogist,' vol. iv., p. 195, esta-
blishing the place in the pedigree of the two Bishops of Bath and Wells of this

Arms of this family of Bytton or Button : Erm., afess gu.



Robert de Button, son of Kobert de Button.
Vide Ped. Fin., 1237.

John de Button, Senior Prebendary of Comb, 1268. Had a Grant, as brother of the Bishop, of
two parts of the Prebend of St. Decuman in 1249. By his will leaves money for the good of
his soul, and the soul of his brother William, Bishop of Bath and Wells. Died before the
Vigil of St. Nicholas, 1273.


Sir Adam de^ William de Richard de Button, Vicar of St. Cuthbert, Wells ; witness to a

Button. Wit- Button, first Confirmation by the Dean and Chapter of a Grant by Bishop

ness to a of the name William, dated Stephen's Day, 1248. On Tuesday after the

Grant of Wil- Bishop of Feast of St. Thomas, 1242, he was one of a deputation to the

liam. Bishop Bath and monks of Bath to act with the Chapter of Wells to elect a

of Bath and Wells; con- Bishop. William, Prior of the Hospital of St. John, Wells,

Wells 1273. secrated promised Richard de Button, Precentor, in return for certain

1248 ; died benefits, a full service yearly for the souls of the said Richard

1264. de Button, of Bishop William de Button, and their ancestors.

Sir John de=^ Philip de Button. Inspeximus by the Dean and Chapter of a Grant by
Button. Bishop William de Button to Philip de Button of a burgage in Wells, etc.,

in 1251. Tn Jan. 1260 leave was granted by the Dean and Chapter for the
celebration of divine service in his Chapel at Melsbury ; John, Vicar of St.
Cuthbert, consents provided all offerings of the said Philip and his family
at the four great feasts, and those he is bound to pay as a parishioner to
the mother Church, saving a penny a day for a chaplain, be paid to said
John. For this he pays two shillings a year.

William de Button, elected Bishop of Bath and Wells 10 Feb.
1267. By deed dated St. Matthew's Day, 1273, grants all the
service due to him from his brother Thomas de Button, Arch-
deacon of Wells, to which Sir Adam de Button and Philip de
Button are witnesses.

Thomas de Button, Archdeacon
of Wells ; elected Dean of
Wells 1284 ; became Bishop of
Exeter, and died in 1307.

(Page 39.)

The exact connection of Bishop John Harewell with the Worcestershire family
is not shewn by the Wells MSS.; he was probably brother of Eoger, who is
mentioned as father of Canon Eoger Harewell, who in 1380 obtained from the
Chapter a confirmation of a lease he had made of part of his canonical buildings.
This Eoger became Archdeacon of Bath, and was admitted to residence by the
Chapter in 1392. Canon Eoger Harewell presented to Compton Dundon in 1409,
and to Mudford 1424. Eichard Harewell was installed a Canon and Prebendary of
Litton 1 Oct. 1361. He makes formal declaration that he desires to become a
Eesidentiary 24 Sept. 1388. Canon Thomas Harewell in 1380 was acting for the
Dean. Another Eichard Harewell was instituted to the living of Trent in 1410,
and to that of St. Cuthbert, Wells, in 1424. John Harewell, Eector of Berkeley,
died in 1459.

William Harewell, who in the Worcestershire Visitation is recorded as having
married Agnes, daughter of Sir Henry Owgan, presented to the living of
Beercrocombe in 1454, 1457, and again in 1489, and to Capland in 1467, but died
in 1504, when Agnes, the relict of William Harewell, presented to Beercrocombe
and to Capland. Nor did this long connection of the family end then, for John,


son and heir of the above William and Agnes Harewell, left five daughters his co-
heirs, one of whom, Elizabeth, married Anthony Rowley of Devonshire, and she
with her husband presented to Oapland in 1519 and again in 1531.

Richard Symonds in his ' Diary ' mentions the following coat as being in coloured
glass at the church of Hinton St. George when he visited the place in 1644 : Arg.,
on a/ess az., betw. in chief three stags' heads caboshed or, and in base as many fleurs-
de-lis sa., a bishop's mitre. The fleurs-de-lis are no doubt a mistake of Symonds
for pheons.

The following pedigree does little more than suggest additions to Mr. Greenfield's,
already quoted, and is wholly compiled from the Cathedral MSS. ; at the same time
it corrects the errors in the Harl. MS., which was partly Mr. Greenfield's authority.

The Cathedral MSS. shew no evidence that Mary de Drokensford brought the
Manor of Shipham to the Clyvedon family, but rather that Clyvedon had it from
Malherb, which is supported by the Hastings quarterings at North Cadbury, among
which are, Or, a lion ramp. az. crowned yu., Clyvedon, and Arg., three nettle-leaves
gu. f Malherb. But no coat of Drokensford.
