composer's name is given besides the syllable
' Fre ' (probably a contraction of ' F. Tregian ') ;
and at p. 297 in the margin, the initials ' F.
Tr.' are written against the first line of a jig
by William Byrd; on p. 315 'Mrs. Katherin
Tregian's Pauen' is WTitten in the margin against
a Pavana Chromatica by William Tisdall. These
few clues certainly point to some connection of the
volume with the Tregian family, and it so hap-
pens that the history of at least two individuals
of the name of F. Tregian is known with a con-
siderable degree of certainty. The Tregians
were a very rich and powerful Catholic family,
whose seat was at Golden or Volveden in Corn-
wall, in which county their estates were said to
have been worth £3000 per annum. Towards
the close of the i6th century the head of the
family was named Francis Tregian : his mother
was named Katherine, and was the daughter of
Sir John and Lady Elizabeth Arundell of Lan-
herne.^ In the year 1577 the Tregian family
seem to have become suspected, probably
much on account of their wealth as of their
religion, and (according to one account) a con-
spiracy was planned for their ruin. On June 8
the house at Golden was entered and searched,
and one Cuthbert Mayne, a priest of Douay,
steward to Francis Tregian, was arrested and
imprisoned, with several other of Tregian's ser-
vants, 'all gentlemen .saving one,' says a contem-
porary account, in Launceston Gaol. At the
following assizes, Mayne was convicted of high
treason, and was hanged, drawn, and quartered
at Launceston on Nov. 29 of the same year.
Tregian himself, who had been bound over to
appear at the assizes, was committed a close pri-i
soner to the Mai'shalsea, where he remained fori
ten months. He was then suddenly arraigned at
the King's Bench and sent into Cornwall to be
tried. For some time the jury would tleliver no
verdict, but after they had been repeatedly
threatened by the judges, a conviction was ob-
tained, and Tregian was sentenced to suffer the
penalty of praemunire and to perpetual banish-
ment. On hearing his sentence he exclaimed,
' Pereant bona, quae si uon periis.sent, fortassis
dominum suum perdidissent ! ' Immediately
judgment was given, Tregian was laden with
irons and thrown into the foul common gaol of
the county ; bis goods were seized, his wile and
children were expelled, and his mother was de-
prived of her jointure, so that ' she remained
oppresst with calamity untill her death.'

After being moved from prison to prison, and

ufFering indignities without number, which he
indured with the utmost fortitude, Tregian was
inally removed to the Fleet, where his wife
oined him. He remained in prison for twenty-
our (or, according to some accounts, twenty-
ight) years, during which time he suffered
Quch from illness, but occupied himself by writ-
ng poetry, and about the end of Elizabeth's
eig^ he was released on the petition of his
fiends, though his estates still remained for-
eited. In 1606 he left England on account of
lis ill-health, and went to Madrid. On his way
le visited Douay (July 1606), and at Madrid he
iras kindly received by Philip III., who granted
lim a pension. He retired to Lisbon, and died
here Sept. 25, 1608, aged 60. He was buried
n the church of St. Eoch, and soon came to be
egarded as a saint. His body was said to have
leen found uncorrupted twenty years after his
eath, and it was alleged that miracles had been
r'orked at his grave. Francis Tregian had no
;ss than eighteen children, of whom eleven were
cm in prison. The eldest son, who bore his
ither's name of Francis, on June 29, 1608,
ought back the family estates for £6,500, but
1 the following year he was convicted of recu-
ancy, and part of the lands were again seized.
n 161 1 he is said to have compounded with the
Jrown, to have sold the rest of his property and
one to Spain, where he was made a grandee,
nd became the ancestor of the St. Angelo
imily. He was living in 1620, and probably
id not die until 1630, when an inquisition was
leld of his lands. Another son of Francis Tre-
ian the elder's, Charles by name, was educated
b Rheims, and entered the household of Cardi-
al Allen. After the Cardinal's death (1594),
!harles Tregian wrote a 'Planctus de Morte
lardinalis Alani.' He is said later to have served
nth the Spanish army in the Netherlands, and
i^as living in 1611.^

It will thus be seen that the connection of the
'regian family with the Netherlands was even
loser than Mr. Chappell suspected, but it was
mpossible that the Virginal book .could have
leen written by the elder Francis Tregian, who
according to Oliver) was the author of the son-
let prefixed to Verstegan's work. If the account
if the younger Francis Tregian's settling in
ipain is accurate, it is hardly probable that he
fa,s the transcriber of the MS. But whoever
he actual scribe was, the series of dated pieces
ly Peter Philipps (pp. 134-165), who was an
Cnglish Catholic ecclesiastic settled in the Ne-
herlands, and possibly a connexion of Morgan
^hilipps, one of the first Professors of the Douay
'ollege, the note (p. 284) to the Pavana of Byrd's
who was aU his life a Catholic), the heading of
^^ jig (P- 306), ' Doctor Bull's myselfe ' (Bull
?ent to Holland in 1613), all point to the con-
lusion that the collection was formed by some

' Further information as to the Tregian family may be found in

ellany for June. 18'23 ; also in Add. MSS. 21,203, and in the State

one who was intimate with the Catholic refugees
of the period, while the probable connection of
the book with the Tregian family, the details of
whose misfortunes are more interesting than the
above short sketch can convey, lends to it a
value beyond that of its musical contents.

The earliest account of this collection of Vir-
ginal music occurs in the Life of Dr. John Bull
in Ward's Lives of the Gresham Professors ( 1 740),
in which is printed a list of Bull's compositions
contained in it. Ward states that his informa-
tion was derived from Dr. Pepusch, who com-
municated the contents of the volume to him,
describing it as 'a large folio neatly written,
bound in red Turkey leather, and guilt.' In
this no mention is made of the book having be-
longed to Queen Elizabeth. In 1762 it was
bought for 10 guineas at the sale of Dr. Pe-
pusch's collection by R. Bremner, who gave it to
Lord FitzwiUiam, in whose possession it was in
1783. It is next noticed in Hawkinis's History
(1776), where it is first stated to have been in
Queen Elizabeth's possession. Hawkins also
tells the story (repeated by Burney) of Pepusch's
wife, Margherita de I'Epine, having attempted
to play the music it contained, but although an
excellent harpsichord player, never having been
able to master the first piece. Bull's Variations
on ' Walsingham.' Burney (1789) adds the
well-known account of Elizabeth's playing to Sir
James Melvil, with the remark that if she could
execute any of the pieces in the Virginal Book,
she must have been a very great player, as some
are so difficult that it would be hard to find
a master in Europe who would play them with-
out a month's practice. Burney's acquaintance
with the MS. must have been very slight, as he
describes Peter Philipps's Fantasia on p. 158 as
a regular fugue for the organ. Burney's remark.s
have been repeated by several -writers, amongst
others by Steevens, in his notes to * Winter's
Tale' (1803), but with the exception of Mr.
Chappell's conjecture nothing further has been
discovered with regard to the origin or history
of the book. A MS. index of its contents was
in the possession of Bartleman, and from this a
copy was made in 18 16 by Henry Smith, and
inserted at the end of the original volume. In
Warren's edition of Boyce's * Cathedral Music '
(1849), a list of its contents was printed in the
notes to the Life of Byrd, but this is in many
respects inaccurate. In framing the following
list some attempt has been made to give a
few references to similar collecticms in which
other copies of the compositions indexed may be
found. The compositions mostly consist of airs
and variations, the different sections of which
are numbered consecutively. Thus the first
piece in the book consists of 29 variations on
the air 'Walsingham,' but as in the MS. the air
itself is numbered ' i,' the number of sections is
stated in the index to be thirty. The references
to Mr. Chappell's work are to the edition already
mentioned. The spelling of the MS. is generally
retained, but in a few instances abbreviations
have been omitted.
