\W\AAV



The family of Leighton was in England
long before the Norman Conquest, and is
styled by Camden in his Britannia, Nobilem,
et Equestrem Familiam.

Sir Titus de Leighton, Knight of the
Sepulchre, son and heir of Cuthbert, and
grandson and heir of Totilus de Leighton,
was a co-founder, upon his return from the
Holy Land, of the Abbey of Buldewas, in
Salop, of which mention is made in some
old manuscripts written by Roger and John
Challingworth. The son of this gallant
knight,

Sir Richard de Leighton, knt. had a
reconveyance of the manor of Leighton from
William Fitz Allan soon after the Conquest,
and out of this manor, which lay close to
the Abbey of Buldewas, Sir Richard gave
lands to that house, as appears by his grant
without date, inserted in Dugdale's Monas-
ticon, prior to that in which King Stephen
confirmed the said abbey. From this Sir
Richard we pass over a long line of distin-
guished individuals to

estates, in North Devon.




Htntaot.



The Carews are one of the few families
now remaining- which can trace their descent
without interruption, from the Anglo-Saxon
period of English history.

Otho, living in the time of Edward the
Confessor, held several lordships in Hamp-
shire, Buckinghamshire, and Middlesex,
and was s. at his decease by his son,

Walter Fitz Otho, who, at the time of
the general survey, appears by Domesday
book to have enjoyed the same lordships
which his father held. The name and fa-
mily of this Walter's wife are in doubt, as
likewise the seniority of his three sons.*
Those sons were

William, from whom derived the Lords
Windsore.

Robert, Lord of Eston.

Gerald.
The third in this list,

Gerald, sometimes styled De Windsore,
and at others Fitz Walter, is called, in the
Duke of Leinster's pedigree, the eldest son,

the youngest. He was appointed castellan

of eminence in the reign of Edward I. who
was summoned to the parliament held at
Lincoln by that monarch. He had also two
military summonses, and was at the cele-
brated siege of Karlavarok. Sir Nicholas
subscrihed the letter to the Pope with his
appendant seal of three lions. His son and
successor,

Sir John Carru, was father of

lant soldier and distinguished statesman, in
the martial and victorious reign of Edward
