HtnccW.



The family of PACKB originally was of
the county of Northampton.

Christopher Packe, of Finchley, a mer-
chant of London, espoused Mary, daughter
of — Jones, esq. of the Principality of
Wales, and was father of

Sir Christopher Packe, lord mayor of
London, in 1654—5. This gentleman, a
zealous parliamentarian, received the honor
of knighthood from the Proteetor Crom-
well, and was a memher of the Usurper's
other house of parliament, as Lord Packe.
Upon the restoration of the monarchy, Sir
Christopher's name, at the express recom-
mendation of the House of Lords, was
omitted in the list of persons excepted from
the general pardon, " provided thathe should
never from that time accept any office, ec-
clesiastical, civil, or military, or any other
public employment." He was accordingly,
with six other citizens, who had served the
office of lord mayor in the time of the
Commonwealth, deprived of the aldermanic
gown ; and withdrawing into retirement, he
resided subsequently in great hospitality, at
Cotes, in Leicestershire, where he was living
when the heralds visited that county, in
March, 1G21 - 2, but died on the 17th May
following, about 89 years of age. This
eminent citizen married three wives, but
had issue only by the second, Anne, daugh-
ter of Simon Edmonds, esq. of Howell, in
the county of Lincoln, and niece of Sir
Thomas Edmonds, comptroller to King
James I. namely,

Utncagc.



This family resided originally for many
years in Sussex, and the branch of which
we are about to treat was dwelling at Bos-
den, in the county of Chester, about the year
1377. The inscription upon the gravestone,
in the middle aisle, approaching the pulpit
in Stockport church, bears the names of
" Thomas Cowper, de Bosden, February 13,
1411 — and Thomas Cowper, y e son, Octo-
ber 8, 1471." It is not known, however,
whom these persons married, as no parish
registers were kept there at that early pe-
riod, nor before the year 1538; but from
ancient family registers and documents in



the possession of Thomas Cowper and Wil-
liam Mills, the following information is de-
duced.

W I LLI A M W Y X D H A M . *

* This eminent person was born in Lon-
don, 3rd May, 1750. In his seventh year
he was placed at Eton, and became con-
spicuous amongst his companions for abili-
ties and courage. In 17(50, he went to the
University of Glasgow, and the next year
he entered Oxford as a gentleman com-
moner. At this period of his life, he felt so
little interest in public affairs, that he w as
said never to know who was prime minister.
His debut, as a public speaker, was at a
political meeting in Norwich, and he there
opposed, with great energy, the subscription
then in progress to sustain the American
war. In 1782, he obtained a seat in par-
liament, as representative for Norwich, and
here, as at Eton, he was soon distinguished
by his talents and intrepidity. In 1783,
he was appointed chief secretary to the
lord-lieutenant of Ireland. Upon the dis-
union amongst the whigs, in 1793, Wind-
ham attached himself to Burke, and the
next year he was constituted secretary-at-
war, with the unusual distinction of a seat
in the cabinet. From this time he held
office until the retirement of Mr. Pitt, in
1801, at whose decease in 1806, he resumed
his station of secretary-at-war, joined to
that of colonial secretary, under the Gren-
ville administration. With the whigs he
again retired, and ever afterwards sate upon
the opposition bench. His death, which
took place in 1810, arose from the following
circumstance. While passing, in the pre-
ceding year, by the end of Conduit-street,
(-»n the 8th July,) he saw a house on fire,
and with his characteristic intrepidity, pro-
ceeded towards the spot, in order to afford
all the assistance in bis power. He found
the tlaines rapidly advancing towards the
residence of the Hon. Mr. North, whose

son of Valentine, Lord Adare,
to whom she conveyed Dun-
valuable library he determined, if possible,
to save from destruction. He laboured at
the task which he thus imposed upon him-
self, for no less than four hours, during a
heavy rain, and amidst the playing of seve-
ral engines. He laboured, however, not in
vain, for most of the books were preserved ;
but he sustained a serious injury in the hi]),
by falling under the weight of some heavy
volumes ; of the accident he took little no-
tice, until an indolent encysted tumour had
been formed, when, upon taking surgical
advice, lie found that it was necessary for
him to submit to a painful and dangerous
operation. The tumour was accordingly
operated upon and removed, 17th May, 18IO,
but unfavourable symptoms followed, and
he expired on the 4th of the following June.
"•Windham generally acted," (says a recent
writer,) " as though he cared for no opinion
but his own. He dealt largely in para-
doxes, was often false in his philosophy ,
and occasionally advocated nonsense ; yet
he had the credit of being an enlightened
man, and of always speaking as he thought.
A Quixote against what he deemed the pre-
judices of the great: he frequently startled
the dull ear of some stately associate, by
asserting that it was essential for the sup-
port of our national intrepidity, to encourage
cock-fighting, bull-baiting, and pugilism. 1 1
was his ambition to realize and embody in
himself the popular idea of a thorough Eng-
lishman ; his eloquence was bold and forci-
ble ; his opinions masculine, generous, and
tolerant. He had a most fervid affection for
the pastimes of our ancestors ; and de-
claimed with equal zeal and eloquence to
prove the necessity of their perpetuation.
His popular predilections were so nicely
balanced by his loyalty, that he enjoyed the

raven Castle, &c. and he as-
sumed the additional surname
of Wyndham. His father was
subsequently created Earl of
Dunraven and Mountearl, and
he inherited those lion ours
himself at the decease of that
nobleman, 24th August, 1824.

man Avas called to the degree of
serjeant-at-law 1st June, 1660, con-
stituted one of the barons of the ex-
chequer in 1670, and subsequently
transferred to the bench of the com-
mon-pleas.

9. Wadham (Sir), of whom we are
about to treat.

The youngest son,

Sir Wadham Wyndham, of Norrington,
in the county of Wilts, was one of the
judges of the court of king's bench, in 16G0.
He m. Barbara, daughter of Sir George
Clarke, knt. of Walford, Northamptonshire,
and had, with several other children,

rare felicity, as a public man, of being in
high favour with the people, without render-
ing himself at all odious to the sovereign.
He was much beloved in private life, his
character being amiable, and his conversa-
tion varied, sportive, intelligent, and con-
ciliating. So decidedly high did he rank in
public estimation, that the immediate neigh-
bourhood of his residence was thronged with
carriages during his illness, containing
anxious enquirers as to the state of his
health ; his house was crowded with friends
during the consultations of his medical at-
tendants. All classes exhibited the most
lively sympathy for his sufferings; and the
king himself repeatedly desired to be in-
formed of the progress of his malady; em-
phatically declaring that the expiring senator
was a genuine patriot and a truly honest
