SENHOUSE, OF NETHER HALL.



Hmtagc.



The family De Sewynhouse, De Seven-
house, or De Senhouse, derives its sur-
name from Hall Sevenhouse, or Senhouse,
a district of Cumberland. The first of its
members upon record,

Walter de Sewynhouse, had a grant of
the fifth part of the township of Bolton, in
the parish of Gosforth, from Alan de Coup-
land, and likewise a grant of other lands in
the same parish from William de Way-
berthwaite. These grants are both without
date, but both are witnessed by Sir Adam
de Lamplugh, knt. who lived in the times
of Kinys Richard I. and John. Walter
was s. by his son,

Walter de Sevenhouse, who was wit-
ness to a deed, also without date, with Sir
Richard le Fleming, knt. who died about
the close of Henry III.'s reign. This Wal-
ter was s. by his son,

Nicholas de Sevenhouse, who was s. by
his son and heir, another

Nicholas de Sevenhouse, who held the
hamlet of Newton, or Seascale, in the parish
of Gosforth, of Thomas de Multon, of Egre-
mont, as appears by the office of escheat
after the death of the said Thomas, bearing
date 15th Edward II. Nicholas de Seven-
house became possessed of the hamlet of
Newton in right of his wife, a daughter and
heiress of De Ponsonby, whose arms quar-
tered with those of De Sevenhouse, en-
graven on stone, are at present to be seen
on the manor hall of Seascale. He was s.
by his son,

Nicholas de Sewynhouse or de Sen-
house, who had a grant of certain lands in
Bolton from James de Wayberthwaite, bear-
ing date 6th Richard II. and grants of cer-
tain other lands within the lordship of Bol-
ton Fell from William de Wayberthwaite,
formerly rector of Wayberthwaite, all dated
in the 14th of the same reign. He married,
as it would seem, a daughter and co-heiress
of Alan de Coupland, of Coupland and Sea-
ton, in the county of Cumberland, and was
*. by his son,

William de Sevenhouse, who m. a daugh-
ter and co-heir of Lucy. Amongst the ar-
chives of the family of Senhouse is still
preserved a deed of conveyance from Alice
de Lucy, daughter and co-heir of Richard
de Lucy, of Egremont, by Ada de Morville,
his wife, to her second son, Sir John de
Lucy, high sheriff of the county of Cumber-
land for two years, 31st Edward I. and
knight of the shire for the same county 34th
of the same reign, from whom, by his wife
Christian, descended the wife of this Wil-



liam Sevenhouse, which William was s. at
his decease by his son,

Thomas de Senhouse, whose name ap-
pears in the return of gentlemen of the
county of Cumberland, made in the 12th
Henry VI. It is related that in a warm
altercation with a monk of Calder Abbey,
relative to his claim of a right to fish in the
river Calder, this Thomas de Sevenhouse
was so highly exasperated that he hurled
the monk over the battlements of the bridge.
For this summary act of extra-judicial pro-
cess he was obliged to compound by a
heavy fine imposed upon his estates. He
m. a daughter of Sir Richard Hudleston, of
Milium Castle, in Cumberland, knight ban-
neret, and was s. by his son,

Thomas Senhouse, who was a party with
Richard Hudleston, esq. of Milium Castle,
in an award made by his brother, Sir Simon
Senhouse,* prior of Carlisle, 16th Henry
VII. He was also, in the next year, a
party with William Stanley, esq. of Dale-
garth, in Cumberland, in another award
made by William Siveger, Lord Bishop of
Carlisle, 17th Henry VII. He m. Eleanor,
daughter of John Lamplugh, esq. of Lamp-
lugh, and had John, his successor, An-
thony, and Margaret, wife of John Stanley,
esq. of Dalegarth. This Thomas, as did his
father, enjoyed the family estates for half a
century. He was s. by his son,

John Senhouse, who m. in 1528, Eliza-
beth, elder sister and co-heir of Richard
Eglesfield,t son of Gawen Eglesfield, of
Alneburgh Hall, high sheriff of the county
of Cumberland in the 9th Henry VIII.
(which Gawen was the descendant in a right
line from John de Eglesfield, the elder bro-
ther of Robert de Eglesfield, the founder
of Queen's College, Oxford.) This John
Senhouse received an ample pardon, by



* Sir Simon Senhouse, prior of Carlisle, second
son of Thomas de Sevenhouse, by the daughter of
Hudleston. This reverend and learned person
caused the principal apartment in the tower of the
priory to be curiously painted with the paternal
crest, motto, and badge, as well as the motto of
his mother's (the Hudleston) family, together
with numerous emblematic devices, and pious
ejaculations in prose and verse. He had likewise
the legends of Saint Anthony, Saint Augustine,
and Saint Cuthbert, painted in the aisles of the
cathedral at Carlisle. He lies buried under a
marble tomb in the north side of the cathedral
church.

sey, ot Bardsey, in Lancashire, and d. s. p.

letters patent, for all such crimes of a trea-
sonable nature as he had previously com-
mitted, and he was appointed, also by let-
ters patent, dated 7th Elizabeth, escheator
of the counties of Cumberland and West-
moreland. He d. in 1568, leaving four sons,
viz.

I. Thomas, who inherited all the patri-
monial estates of the family, and ac-
quired himself, in the 6th of Eliza-
beth, the advowson and right of
patronage of the rectory and parish
church of Gosforth. He m. Dorothy,
daughter of John Vaux, esq. of Cat-
terlen, in Cumberland, and was *. by
his son,
John Senhouse, esq. of Seascale
Hall, who m. Mary, daughter of
William Fleming, esq. of Rydal,
in Westmoreland, and d. in 1636,
leaving issue,

1. John, of Seascale, who m.
Anne, daughter and co-heir
of John Bimpson, esq. of
Shevington, in Lancashire,
by his wife, the sister
and co-heir of Sir Edward
Wrightington, knight, of
Wrightington, in the same
county. This John's name,
under the denomination of
"John Senhouse, esq. of Ec-
cleston/' was inserted, 28th
October, 1652, in the addi-
tional bill for the sale of
lands and estates forfeited
to the commonwealth. His
eldest son, John, d. in the
lifetime of his father with-
out issue. His second son,

Wrightington Senhouse
of Seascale Hall, who
was to have been one of
the Knights of the Royal
Oak, in 1660, was fa-
ther of
John Senhouse, of
Seascale Hall, high
sheriff of Cumber-
land, 3rd of Anne,
who m. Elizabeth,
dau. of John Bel-
lingham, esq. of Le-
vens, in Westmor-
land. This John
sold all the patri-
monial estates, and
his descendants be-
came extinct in
the male line about
the middle of the
last century.

2. Joseph, founder of the Hall
Bolton family, which be-
came extinct in the male



line about a hundred years
ago.

II. Peter, of Ellenborough Hall, who
was admitted to the freedom of the
city of London in 1562. To this Peter,
his aunt, Anne Bardsey, granted one
half of her moiety of the manor of
Alneburgh, otherwise Nether Hall.
He d. unmarried, and bequeathed his
estates to his brother John.

III. John, of whom presently.

iv. Richard, incumbent of Claughton,
in Lancashire.
The third son,

John Senhouse, succeeded his elder bro-
ther Peter, in his half moiety of the manor
of Ellenborough, and inherited from his
mother her moiety of the same. He had
saved that lady's life, at the imminent risk
of his own, from the certainty of being
drowned in the river Derwent. He inhe-
rited, likewise, his aunt Bardsey's half
moiety, and thus became eventually sole
proprietor of Alneburgh, or Ellenborough,
otherwise Netherhall. This John is the
person whom Camden mentions in his Bri-
tannia, as having collected with great indus-
try, numerous Roman stones, altars, lavers,
statues, with inscriptions, which he had
placed with much taste in his houses and
buildings ; and as having entertained, in 1 599,
the celebrated antiquary himself, and Sir
Robert Cotton, of Conington, with great
civility. He was steward of all the lord-
ships, manors, lands, &c. which formerly
belonged to the monastery of Holme-Cutt-
ram, in the county of Cumberland. He m.
Anne, daughter of John Ponsonby, esq. of
Hail Hall, and had, with other issue,

1. Peter, his successor.

2. Simon, who was murdered near Do-
venby, by Skelton, of Armathwaithe.
Skelton and himself are said to have
paid their addresses to the same lady,
who gave the preference to Simon,
and thereby so enraged Skelton, as to
excite him to so base an act of un-
merited vengeance.

3. Richard, in holy orders, D.D. fel-
low of St. John's, Cambridge, after-
wards dean of Gloucester, and conse-
crated in 1624, bishop of Carlisle.
Of this prelate it is related, that
" When he was a scholar at Cam-
bridge, coming into the country to
see his friends, his horse happened to
cast a shoe, and having no money to
to pay the smith withal, — '■Well,
well,' says the smith, ' go your ways,
and when you come to be bishop of
Carlisle, you 11 pay me ;' which he
did in abundance of gratuity ; and
was a religious and honest pastor."
Dr. Senhouse preached the corona-
tion sermon before King Charles I.

get, daughter of Andrew Huddleston, esq. of
Hutton-John, and of her husband, Joseph
Huddleston, esq. of Milium Castle, both
of whom adopted him, being themselves
without issue, in consequence of some need-
ful kindnesses received from Senhouse's
father and mother, during the first years of
their marriage ; an alliance which had taken
place contrary to the wishes of their im-
mediate families, while Joseph Huddleston
was a younger brother and before he in-
