Maria.

Mr. Delafield is the second son of the late John Dela-
field, esq. but his elder brother. Count Delafield, haying
established himself abroad, he is now the representntiye
of the family in England. The Count appears to be the on-
doubted heir to the ancient Barony of Fits Warivb» ,
which has been suspended for more than four centuries.



'Slncagf.



This family derives it* descent from the
Counts db la Fbld, the once powerfol pro-
prietors of the demesnes and castle near
Colmar, of which the latter still bears their
name. These Lords had large possessions
in Alsace and Loraine, and are frequently
mentioned in the wars of those countries.
The Croix d'or of La Feld, their ancient
badge, is still the coat armour of the house
immediately before us.

It is probable that Hubbrtus db la Fbld
was the first of his race that emigrated to
England ; and that he came over amongst
the crowd of foreigners who attended me
conqueror hither, his name appearing en-
rolled as the owner of lands in the ooun^of
Lancaster, in the third of Wiluam I. The
name of John db la Fbld occurs in the 12th
of Henry I. as a proprietor in the counties
of Lancaster and Bucks ; of Robert db la
Fbld, without a date, and of John db la
Fbld, in the 38th and 43rd of Henry III.
The last mentioned person,

John db la Fbld, witnessed two deeds
in the same years on the marriages of his
son and daughter, viz.

John, of whom presently.
