Robert, A. B. b. 9th February, 1810.

John-Grey-Porter, b. 31st December, 1812.







This gentleman was elected in 1796, a fellow of Caius and Gonville College, Cam-
bridge ; whence removing to Ireland, he obtained the preferment above mentioned.


This family deduces its origin from the
time of the Norman Conquest, at which
period its first founder came over into
England, and is said to have borne the
name of De-la-How. His grandson having
settled in the county of Berks, the surname
originally signifying " Of the Hill," became
corrupted At the Hill, and thence was
shortened into Atthill. From this De-
la-How lineally descended

Richard Att'ehill, of Bareworth, in the
county of Berks, (whose name, &c. are
recorded in the Abbreviatio Rotulo Ori-
ginalium, 31st Edward I.) He m. Maude,
daughter of Sir John Harley, of South
Wales, and had issue,

only daughter and heiress, who espoused
in 1326, her cousin,

the first of his family who settled in the
county of Norfolk, where his descendants
have since continued to reside. He is men-
tioned among the benefactors of the Abbey
of Lewes, and d. leaving issue, one son and

of Geystwick, Norfolk, where a monument
to his memory still remains, in the South

of the county of Norfolk, and had issue',

whom acquired the lands and tenements of
Harewell, in the county of Berks, and d.
without male issue.

Thomas Att'ehill, the elder son, sucr
ceeded his father at Walpole. This gen-
tleman was among the vali;mt followers
of the chivalrous Edward III. and is re-



corded to have displayed on several occa-
sions, proofs of the greatest valour; for
these and other services, Edward granted
him estates to a considerable extent in
Buckinghamshire, of which we find mention
in the Calendariuin Kotuloruni Patentiuin,
l«. 152, in the following words:

Hugo de Montmorencie, a French officer,
and by her, left with three daughters,
Henry, his successor.
He was s. by his elder son,

Henry Att'ehill, who fell in the wars
of the Hoses, leaving an only son, who d. in
infancy. The family estates then devolved
upon his only brother,

dence having become dilapidated, this gen-
tleman settled at Cawston, in the county

KYNNERSLEY-SNEYD, THOMAS, esq. of Loxley Park, in the county of Staf-
ford, b. 6th May, 1774.

This gentleman, whose patronymic is Sneyd, assumed in 1815, by sign manual, in
compliance with the testamentary injunction of his uncle Clement Kynnersley, esq.
the additional surname and arms of that family : when he succeeded to the Kynnersley


According to an old pedigree

" The family of the Kynnersleys is very
ancient, being seated long before the Con-
quest in com. Hereford, in a castle soe called
at present. In Doomesday Booke it is re-
corded, that when the Conqueror was pos-
sessed of his newe kingdome of England,
bee sent his Comiss 1 " 3 throughout y e remote
parts thereof, to know howe every man held
his lands. In which tyme there was an

oidd gentleman that lived and was owner of
Kynnardsley Castle, in com. Hereford : by
name John de Kynnardsley, and by title a
knight (if any knights were before the Con-
quest). This ould gentleman was blind, he
had then liveing with him twelve sonnes,
whom with himself he armed, and stood in
his castle gate, his halberd in his hand, at-
tending the coming of sheriffs and other
comiss rs from y e king, who being arrived,
demanded of him by what tenure he held
his castle and lands ; y e old kn" replyed by
his armes, shewing to them his halberd."

Hugo de Kynnardsleye is mentioned in
several charters, in the time of Henry III.
and was seised of the manor of Newland,
and other estates in the counties of Glouces-
ter and Hereford. This Hugh, a soldier of
the cross, accompanied Prince Edward to
the Holy Land, and received the honor of
knighthood ; upon which occasion he added
the Jerusalem crosses to his arms, which
were before " az. a lion rampant ar."
