IIOLT. The first mentioned of this family
is Thomas Holt, who had the manor of Sale,
in Ashton, Cheshire, given to him and Masere
in two divisions, by Adam Dtitton, one of
Earl Lupus' Barons, in 1180 (temp. Richard
I.), who authorised them to bear the arms
and crest still used by this branch, as lineal
descendants ; perhaps the only instance of
two families, with different names. Holt and
Sale, having the same bearings. There were
many generations of this family, who resided
at Grislehurst, Lancasliire ; some fought in
the Scottish wars, and also in favour of
the royal cause at Edgehill, NeAvberry,
Marston JMoor, &c., and were named in
Charles's projected order of the Royal Oak.
Also may be mentioned Judge Holt, and
James Holt, whose mother was co-heiress
to Sir James de vSutton ; he was killed at
Flodden Field, 1513. Randle Holme, the
Chester Herald, drew out James Holt's coat
of arms, which consisted of Holt, Sutton,
Fitz Hugh, Pole, Vernon, Neville, Latimer,
IMontalt, Umfreville, Marmion, Gourney,
Darcy, and Gamel, and styled him " James
Holt, of Grantliam, Lincolnshire, Elton and
Sutton," Cheshire. He has also mentioned
five of his descendants, successively, and
their marriages, signed by Randle Holme,
August 12th, 1672. The relations of John
Holt, the last of the five above named, have
the original document.

large landed proprietor in the ill-fated island of St. Do-
mingo,

The Chevalier, a distinguished and intrepid ofRcev,
emigrated with the French princes, and served the
whole campaign in the army of the French nohility,
commanded by them (then IMonsieur and the Conite
iJ'Artois, subsequently Louis XYIII. and Charles X.) in
1792. On tills army being disbanded at the retreat of the
Prassians commanded by the Duke of Brunswick, the
Chevalier retired to England, and from thence took refuge
in tlie island of Jamaica, where he remained and bore
with exemplary fortitude the bitter evils of his unfortunate
lot until tlie restoration, when he returned to France,
and was immcthately raised by the king to the full rank
of colonel, and honoured by liim with the decoration of
the Lily, in acknowledgment of his services and devotion
to the cause of the Bourbon d)'nasty ; but he did not long
enjoy these favors, and died at Paris in 1818, on the eve
of being promoted to tlie rank of Major-General. The
Chevalier was descended from tlie branch of the house of
Hlontagnae, settled in Langucdoe, which is itself a shoot
of the main tree, sprung originally at the Castle and
Warquisate of Montagnac in Limousin, anno 9.30, as re-
corded, from a junior scion of the sovereign house of the
Vicomto de Limoges, in the south of France. It bore for
arms sable a saltire, or St. Andrew's Cross, arg. be-
tween four mullets of the last. Supporters, two lions

Motto. Passibus aequis.

Of the ancient family of Onebye, now-
extinct, a full and interesting account is
given in the Appendix to Nicholl's History
of Hinckley. The first of that name there
mentioned is John Oneby, Higli Sheritf oif
Rutland, Henry IT., 11.5G. In 1403 Thomas
Ondeby represented the county of Rutland
in Parliament. In 1423, John Oneby occurs
as Sheriff of Rutland ; and Thomas Ondby,
as Sheriff of Leicester and AVarwick, 17th
Richard II., 1484. From the Hail. MSS. it
appears that eight of the family were ad-
mitted at Gray's Inn, and four were ancients.
Of these, John was one in 1G27, whose only
son (Sir John Oneby, Knt., also an ancient)
dying s.p., his four daughters became co-
heiresses : viz. 1st, Elizabeth, m. to Benj.
King, of Kirby Muccles, co. Leicester ; 2nd,
Dorothy, m. to Ezekiel Wright, whose son.
Sir Nathan, was Lord Keeper of the Great
Seal; 3rd, Emmet, m. to Richard ]\Iason,
M.D., of Leicester ; and 4th, Mary, m. to
Thomas Stavely, Esq., who also left four
daughters, co-heiresses. Anne, the second
daughter, m. the Rev. Leonard Welstead,
father of the poet of that name; Christiana,
the third daughter, m. the Rev. Joshua
Walker, Rector of Great Billing, co. North-
ampton, only son of John Walker, of Hurds-
field, near Macclesfield, Cheshire, by his
second wife; Joshua died in 1705. The

his heir, and only remaining descendant of
that name ; he is also co-heir of the late
Robert Andrew, Esq., of Harlestone Park

Motto. Strike Dakeyne, the Devil's in the hempe.

"The strangest of all northern mottos,
' Stryke Dakeyne, the Devil's in the hempe,'
which is noticed as a curiosity of heraldry
by Mark Antony Lower, is, 1 believe, first
found in the grant of new arms by Flower
in 1563, to Arthur Dakyns, Esq., of Linton
and Hackness, in Holderness. He repre-
sented Scarborougli in Parliament, 7 Edward
VL, and was the younger son of Thomas
Dakyns, Esq., of Chelmorden. co. Derby, a
junior member of the Dakyn family settled
at Biggin Grange (parish of Hartington) in
that county. His only child, Margaret, died
issueless in 1G35, having survived her three
husbands, AValter Devereux, Esq., brother
to the Earl of Essex ; Thomas Sydney, Esq.,
son of Sir Henry Sydney, K.G. ; and Sir
Tliomas Posthumous Hoby, Knt. Her
epitaph in Hackness Church states her to
be burled ' so near unto the Bodies of her
Father and of her Mother, as that all three
will become one heape of Duste.' Arthur
Dakyns was a General in the army, but as
two or three centuries ago generals com-
manded on sea as well as land, I imagine he
had distinguished himself in some gallant
fight, perhaps against the Spaniards, Avherein
all the turning point in victory consisted in
cutting some peculiar portion of a ship's
hempen sails or cordage. It often happens
that mottos are dispersed among branches
to whose history they are wholly inappli-
cable. The elder Dakyns, or Dakyenes, of
Derbyshire,* enchanted with the exploit of
cutting the Devil out of the hemp, assumed
the odd motto in question at the very com-
mencement of the seventeenth century (con-
firmed to them in 1611 by St. George). It
is now worn by all the families of that
name so descended." — " Slogans of the
