The Hoskens have been respectable land-
owners in the county of Cornwall for a
series of years. They were formerly seated
at the Barton of Hoskens, in the parish of
St. Enedor, whence they removed, in the
sixteenth century, to Hendra Green, in the
parish of St. Stephens, near Launceston.

John Hosken, esq. the lineal descendant
and representative of the family, was buried

January, 1742. By his wife, Jane, (daugh-

STANLEY, EDWARD, esq. of Dalegarth and Ponsonby Halls, in the county of Cum-

of William Douglas, esq. one of the judges in the East

Edward, b. September, 1822, d. 1825.
William, b. September 14th, 1829.
George-Edward, b. November 21st, 1831.

Mr. Stanley succeeded to his estates at the decease of his
father, November 17th, 1806.

He is a magistrate and deputy lieutenant of the county
of Cumberland, and was sheriff of that shire in 1823.


The Stanleys rank amongst the most an-
cient and influential families in the king-
dom. They were of consequence, says
Camden, half a century before the conquest,
and they have invariably held an eminent
place in history. The branch, of which we
are more immediately about to treat, has
been located in the north for several cen-
turies, and the most ancient of their estates
in Cumberland have descended through an
unbroken succession of father and son over
a period of not less than five hundred years,
to the present proprietor.

Henry Stanleigh de Stoneley, who
lived forty years before the conquest, line-
ally descended

Sir William de Stanley, who, espous-
ing Joan, eldest daughter and co-heir of Sir
Philip Baumville, Lord of Stourton, became
possessed of the manor and bailywick of
Wyrall Forest, and thereupon assumed the
armorial bearings since used by his des-
cendants, viz. three stags' heads on a bend.
By the heiress of Stourton he had, with
other issue, a son and successor,

John Stanleigh, Lord of Stanley and
Stourton, who m. Mabel, daughter of Sir
James Hawsket, knt. and had issue,

William (Sir), Lord of Stanley and
Stourton, who had three sons,

1. William, who m. Margaret,
daughter and heiress of William
de Hooton, Lord of Hooton, in
Cheshire, and from this alliance
lineally descends the present

Sir Thomas Stanley-Mas-
sey-Stanley, bart. of Hoo-
ton, in the county of Chester.

2. John (Sir), from whom derives

Edward Smith - Stanley,
Earl of Derby (see Burke's
Peerage and Baronetage).

3. Henry.

John, of whom presently.
The second son,

John Stanleigh, purchased lands at
Greswithen, in the county of Cumberland,
and represented the city of Carlisle in par-
liament, 20th Edward III. His son and

John Stanleigh, of Greswithen, living
temp. Edward III. bought lands in Emble-
ton and Brackenthwaite, in the county of
Cumberland, in 1335, and was s. at his de-
cease by his son,

Nicholas Stanleigh, of Greswithen, who
marrying Constance, daughter and heiress
of Thomas de Awsfhwaite, Lord of Awsth-
waite, acquired that manor (now denomi-



nated Dalegarth), as appears by deed dated
anno 1345. The lordship of Awsthwaite
was granted by Arthur Boyvill, in 1102, to
Adam de Awsthwaite, in whose family it
continued for 225 years, until the heiress
married with the Stanleys. In 1388, Ni-
cholas Stanleigh obtained by purchase, the
manor and demesne of Ponsonby. He was
s. by his son,

Thomas Stanleigh, Lord of Awsthwaite,
(in the records, called Stanlaw), living in
the reign of Henry VI. who represented
the city of Carlisle in parliament.

Nicholas Stanleigh, esq. Lord of Awsth-
waite, his son and heir, was s. by his son,

Thomas Stanley, esq. of Dalegarth, who,
espousing Ann, daughter of Sir Richard
Hudleston, knt. acquired lands called Hy-
ton, and was s. by his son,

William Stanley, esq. of Awsthwaite and
Dalegarth, living 17th Henry VII. who m.
Alice, daughter of Sir Richard Ducket, knt.
and had a son,

Thomas Stanley, esq. of Dalegarth, who
m. Margaret, daughter of John Fleming,
esq. and had issue,

John, his successor.
Thomas, who was appointed master of
the mint in 1570, and obtained from
his father the ancient family posses-
sions of Greswithen, Embleton, and
Brackenthwaite. He m. Lady Myt-
ford, relict of Sir James Mytford,
knt. by whom he had an only daugh-
ter and heiress,

Mary, who m. the Honourable Sir
Edward Herbert, afterwards cre-
ated Earl of Powis (see Burke's
Extinct Peerage).
The eldest son,

esq. and was s. by his son,

purchased, in 1577, the manor of Birkby,
in the county of Cumberland, from his cousin-
german, the Countess of Powis. He m. Isa-
bel, daughter of John Leake, esq. of Ed-
monton, and was s. by his son,

m. Ann, daughter and co-heiress of Thomas

Westmoreland, and had a son,

John Stanley, esq. of Dalegarth, his suc-
cessor. This gentleman, an active and zeal-
ous royalist, was heavily fined by parliament ;

but the penalty was subsequently mitigated.*
He obtained a grant from the crown, of the
fair and weekly market of Ravenglass, and
likewise purchased the manor of Birker.
Mr. Stanley espoused, first, Mary, daughter
of Thomas Stanley, esq. of Lee, in the coun-
ty of Sussex ; and secondly, Dorothy, daugh-
ter of Henry Featherstonhaugh, of Feather-
stonhaugh,in the county of Northumberland.

wen, esq. of Sella Park. This gentleman

land at the revolution, and proclaimed King
His son and successor,
