fight of Worcester. Boscobel was a lodge
of the Giffards, the Pendrels being merely
housekeepers, &c. and the tried loyalty of
that celebrated family ought rather to be
attributed to their attachment to their land-
lords and feudal superiors, than to any ab-
stract sense of duty to the king. For this
zealous devotion to his unhappy sovereign,
the whole of Mr. Giffard's property was
sequestered by the Drury House Commis-
sioners, and at the advanced age of seventy
he was himself obliged to seek a place of
concealment. He lived, however, to witness
happier days, and received (tardily though)
from the restored monarch a royal grant,
reinstating him in the whole of his noble
possessions. A few months after this act
of justice he executed a deed, by which he
surrendered every thing to his son Walter,
reserving only for himself a small farm,
and such maintenance (with two servants)
as, saith the deed, " was becoming to a gen-
tleman of his quality." He did not long,
however, enjoy the calm this arrangement
seemed to promise. He lived but to see
his family replaced in the wealth, influence,
and honour, which were their heritage, and
died, " full of days," the 25th June, 1663.

suffered during the civil wars, and died in

The family of Loftus, or as it was anciently
t, Lofthouse, appears from the archives
of York Minster, to have nourished in York-
shire as early as the reign of Alfred, and
the same records shew that Christopher
Lofthouse was prior of Helagh, in the same
county, anno 1460.

Edward Loftus, of Swineshead, in the
county of York, left two sons,

1. Robert, whose second son,

Adam LOFTUS, an eminent and dis-
tinguished lawyer.was appointed
Lord Chancellor of Ireland.
in 1619, and created in 1622

Viscount Loftus of Ely, a dig-
nity which expired with his Lord-

male issue, when his Monastere-
van estate passed to his only

Lord Moore) Henry, fourth Earl
of Drogheda.
2. Adam.
The second son,

Adam Loftus, D.D. of Trinity College,
Cambridge, was consecrated in 1561, Arch-
bishop of Armagh, and translated in six
years afterwards to the see of Dublin. This
eminent prelate was twice Keeper of the
great Seal of Ireland, and died in the high
office of Lord Chancellor of that Kingdom.
He was four times, (viz. in 1582, 1585, 1597,
and 1599) one of the Lords Justices, and was
Provost of Trinity College, Dublin, which
University he had a principal part in found-
ing, and in which his descendants enjoy
certain privileges during the period they
are students. His grace built the Castle at
Rathfaniham, and died 5th April, 1605,
at the age of seventy-two, having had by
his wife, Jane, daughter of Adam Purdon,
esq. of Lurgan Race, in the county of Louth,
five sons and seven daughters, viz.

Majesty's Privy Council, in 1753,

of Wexford, and advanced to a

tober, 1766, and was s. by
his only son,

who d. unm. in 1769,
when the earldom ex-
pired, but the viscounty
and barony reverted to
his uncle,
The Hon. Henry Lof-
tus, as fourth viscount.
His lordship was cre-
ated Earl of Ely, but
dying s. p. in 1783, the
honors and male line of
this branch of the family
expired, while his lord-
ship's estates devolved
upon (the son of his
sister, the Hon. Eliza-
beth Tottenham) his

tenham, who thereupon
assumed the surname
and arms of Loftus,
and was created in I860,

as 1770. He eminently distinguished him-
self in the American War, taking an active
part in the memorable conflict of Bunker's
