John Lister, son of Thomas Lister, es-
poused, in 1312, Isabel, daughter and heiress
of John de Bolton, bowbearer of Bolland,

dale, of the Saxon Earls of Mercia. The
great-grandson of this marriage,

Christopher Lister, of Middop, m. in
the reign of Edward IV. Joan, daughter of
Sir William Calverley, of Calverley, and

1. William, of Middop, whose lineal

Sir William Lister, knt. of Thorn-
ton, marrying Mary, daughter
of Sir Henry Bellasys, bart. of
Newborough, left at his decease,
in 1650, witii other issue,
Sir Martin Lister, knt. the
well-known physician. This
eminent person was born
at Thornton, in Craven, and
educated at Oxford, where
he became fellow of Oriel
College; but, travelling
abroad, he took the degree
of M.D. at Basil, and, in
1605, was incorporated at
Oxford, as the English uni-
versities allowed a more
universal communication of

honors with those on the
continent than is usual at
present. His family and
country recommended him
to Anne, Countess of Pem-
broke, whom he appears
to have served in the
double capacity of agent
and physician. By her re-
commendation he became
physician in ordinary to
Queen Anne of Denmark,
and afterwards to King
Charles I. from whom he
received the honor of knight-
hood in 1636. Having even-
tually attained the highest
professional eminence, he
was appointed president of
the college of physicians.
He d. about 1657, at Bur-
well, in Lincolnshire, aged
ninety-two ; an instance of

Thomas Listek, esq. of Westby, baptized
at Gisburn in 1604. This gentleman, during
the civil wars, espoused the cause of the
parliament, and was one of the commis-
sioners for the trial of King Charles. He
attended, however, only four of their meet-
ings, and never signed the warrant; from
which, it appears evident, that he did not
cordially approve of the course the pro-
ceedings were taking ; and it was probably
in consideration of this circumstance, that
the family estates were exempted from for-
feiture at the restoration. He m. Cathe-
rine, daughter of Sir Richard Fletcher, knt.
of Hutton, in the county of Cumberland,

In Duydalt's Monas: we find Tokaldus
dk Papillon one of the witnesses to a deed
of confirmation, granted by William the
Conqueror to the church of Durham.

In the reign of King John

Ralph Paimllon was elected Abbot of
Westminster. This eminent divine, one of
the most eloquent preachers of his time,
rose to distinction under the protection of
the Abbot Lawrence, by whom, according
to Leland, he was appointed Prior of Hur-
ley, a cell of Westminster. He is said to
have written a volume of sermons, and
another of homilies, on the epistles and gos-
pels, of which Leland speaks in high terms
of encomium. He d. in 1225.

William Papillon, one of King Edward
the First's most devoted servants, was re-
commended by his royal master, in the 31st
year of his reign, to the abbot and convent
of Leicester, for a corrody from that house.
This William Papillon is supposed to have
founded the family of Papillon, of Lubben-
ham, in Leicestershire, being lineal an-
cestor of

Thomas Papillon, who espoused Jane
Viene de la Pierre, and who was succeeded
at his decease, 20th November, 1608, by his
eldest son,

David Papillon, of Lubenham. This
gentleman obtained a license, dated 23rd
May, 1623, from Archbishop Abbot per-
mitting himself and his family to frequent
the church at Merston, in the county of
Northampton, as being nearer than their
own parish church of Lubenham, with a
proviso, however, that they should once at
least in the year (at Easter) attend the latter,
to hear prayers and preaching there, and to
receive the sacrament.

Mr. Papillon published, in 1645, " A
Practical Abstract of the Arts of Fortifica-
tion and Assailing, containing four different
methods of fortification, with approved rules
to set out in the field all manner of super-
fices, intrenchments, and approaches by the
demicircle, or with lines and stakes, written
for the benefit of such as delight in the prac-
tice of these noble arts." He was likewise
the author of another work, entitled " The
Vanity of the Lifes and Passions of Men."
He died in 1659, and was s. by his son,

Thomas Papillon, esq. of Lubenham, b.
6th September, 1623. This gentleman was
an eminent merchant, of London, and re-
presented that city in parliament in the 10th
of William III. He had previously sate
for some years, (temp. Charles II.) for
Dover. He was a strenuous supporter of
the patriotic party, by whom King James
the Second was compelled to abdicate the

pany, of which he was master, " to relieve
any of his family that might at any future
time come to want. He had purchased, in

daughter of Thomas Penrice, esq. of Great Yarmouth, by
whom, who d. in January, 1830, he has issue,









Mr. Fountaine was sheriff of Norfolk in 1828. He suc-
ceeded his father in 1825.


The family of Fountaine was originally
of Salle, in Norfolk, and assumed the sur-
name of De Fonte, or Fontibus, from the
springs or fountains near which they resided.

The first upon record who assumed the

John de Fonte, called also De Fontibus
de Salle, who flourished in the latter end of
the reign of Henry III. was much in favor
with Roger Bigod, Earl of Norfolk. He
died in the beginning of Edward the First's
time, and was s. by his eldest son,

Robert de Fontibus, of Salle, whose
great grandson, '

John Ffunteyn, of Salle, was returned in
1430, as one of the chief gentlemen of the
county. He was a principal benefactor, if
not sole founder of the north aisle and north
transept of the present church of Salle,
wherein he lies buried with his three wives.
H» d. in 1453, and was s. by his eldest son,

Matthew Ffunteyn, of Salle, who consi-
derably increased his patrimony, by mai ry-

liam Walshe, of Colby, by Margaret, daugh-

He espoused Sarah, daughter of Sir Thomas
Chicheley, Master of the Ordnance, and
Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, by
whom he had several children, of which three
survived him, viz.

Andrew, his heir.
The eldest son,

Sir Andrew Fountains, evinced an early
taste for the antiquarian pursuits, in which
he was afterwards so eminently distin-
guished. While at Christ's Church, Oxford,
he drew up a list of Anglo-Saxon and Anglo-
Danish coins, published in 1705, in Hicke's
Thesaurus Septntrionalis. He subse-
quently formed, upon his travels, a fine col-
lection of pictures, medals, and antiquities.
From King William III. he received the
honor of knighthood, and in 1727, upon the
lamented death of Sir Isaac Newton, suc-
ceeded that eminently learned person in the

office of warden of the Mint. He was like-
wise vice-chamberlain to Queen Caroline,
and tutor to Prince William. Sir Andrew
