York and Monmouth, whose names the apartments
they occupied still record. During the civil wars,
it was frequently used as a check upon Corfe
Castle. In 1789, George III. with his queen,
and the three eldest princesses, visited Lulworth
Castle by sea from Weymouth. In 1791, the
same royal party repeated their visit by land. In
the next year, their majesties, with the Prince of
Wales, and five of the princesses, sailed from
Weymouth in the Juno frigate, in order to visit
again the Castle ; the sea, however, running high,
none of the nautical party attempted to land, ex-
cept the Prince of Wales, who effected it at the
expense of a severe drenching. In 1830, Lul-
worth Castle opened its gates to the exiled royal
family of France, where they sojourned until their
departure for Holyrood House.

GIFFARD, THOMAS WILLIAM, esq. of Chillington, in the county of Stafford,
b. 25th March, 1789; inherited the estates at the decease of his father, 1st August,
1823. Mr. Giffard is major of the Staffordshire militia.


Osborne de Bolebec, a noble Norman,
in the time of Robert, father of William
the bastard, had two distinguished sons,

1. Walter (Gualtier of the Norman
Chronicles) Compte de Longueville,
who assumed, for what reason has
not been ascertained, the surname of
Gyffarde. This gallant person ac-
quired great renown in the armies of
William, achieving several signal
victories for Normandy, in the war

between that country and France.
When the duke, upon the accession
of Harold to the English throne, de-
sired to invade this island, many, in-
deed most of the Norman nobles held
cautiously back from profiering aid ;
being wearied and impoverished by
the continued struggles in which
William had been engaged since his
father's death. But a few staunch
friends, amongst the foremost of
whom was this Walter and his bro-
ther, coming nobly forward with offers
of men, ships, &c. the laggards were
thereby warmed to the undertaking,
and the expedition was accordingly
set on foot. In the subsequent suc-
cess of his chief, the Compte de Lon-
gueville largely participated ; he ob-
tained no less than one hundred and
seven lordships in the conquered
country, and was constituted Earl
of the county of Buckingham (for
the line of this nobleman, see Burke's
Extinct and Dormant Peerage).
2. Osborne.

The second son,

Osborne Gyffarde, having likewise aided

in placing England under the yoke of the



Norman, had of course his portion of the
spoil, and the fertile county of Gloucester
was allotted as the locality of his reward.
Here he held the extensive manors of
Brimesfield, Rochemtune, Alderberie, and
Stoche ; upon the first named of which he
settled, and there subsequently a great castle
was built, (temp. Stephen) which continued
to be the residence of the family until it was
destroyed by the army of Edward II in the
Baronial war, anno' 1322. This Osborne
died about the year 1086, and was s. by his

Helias Giffarde, who was s. by his son,

Helias Giffarde, who had two sons,

1. Helias, who carried on the line, and
whose descendant, John Giffard, had
summons to parliament from the 24th
June, 1295, to 10th April, 1299, as
Baron Giffard, of Brimsfield.

2. Gilbert.
The younger son,

Gilbert Giffarde, was father of
Peter Giffarde, who to. in the reign of
Henry II., Alice, sister of Peter Corbuchin,
and thus acquired the manors of Chillington
and Walton, in the county of Stafford. This
