times, and lived to witness the restoration
of the monarchy. He left at his decease,

Mr. Calmady succeeded his father, Admiral Calmady, 5th March, 1807.


This ancient family, which was seated at
Calmady, in Cornwall, at a very remote
period, appears to have removed into De-
vonshire about the beginning of the six-
teenth century.

He espoused, secondly, Wylmote daughter
of — A 'ford, by whom he had three sons

and a daughter. His will bears date in
1579, and he was s. by his eldest son,

Josias Calmady, of Langdon, who in-
herited likewise the fortune of his uncle,
Richard Calmady, of Farwood. This gen-
tleman in. Catherine, daughter and heiress

after, as successor to the repre-
sentation and estates of the
branch of Langdon.
Sir Shilston Calmady was killed at the
siege of Ford House during the civil wars.
His widow survived him, and dying in 1663
was buried in Brideston church, where the
following curious epitaph is to be seen upon
her tomb :

" Eight living branches still are springing found,
Though here the root lies dead within the ground.
Two husbands in their tombs divided lie,
Who both did in the bed of honor die ;
But now the king of terrors, oh unjust,
At length has laid their honor in the dust,
Till that which here is in dishonor sown
Be raised in honor to a glorious throne."

ard Buller, knt. by whom he had two daugh-
ters. He espoused secondly, Elizabeth,

in Devon, and had two sons, Josias and
Shilston, who both died young. This gen-
tleman lived to an advanced age, and was
principally occupied in relieving the dis-
tressed. In his last testament he was yet
mindful of their wants, bequeathing twelve
pence per week, in second bread, to the
poor of the parish of Wembury, for ever,
payable out of the rents in Colebrook, now
the property of Earl Morley, to be distri-
buted every Sunday, by the churchwardens.
And leaving £500 to be raised out of the
sheaf of the parish of Wembury, to pur-
chase lands, the income accruing from the
same to be applied to the relief of the parish,
according to the provisions of his will ;
which money has since been expended in
the purchase of an estate, Higher Egcumb,
and Rumsdown, in the parish of Milton
Abbott, in the county of Devon. This be-
nevolent person d. in 1682, and leaving no
male issue, was s. by his nephew,

tion :

Near this place are deposited the remains of

Charles Holmes Calmady, esq.
Admiral of the Blue, who departed this life,
loth March, 1807,
In the 54th year of his age.
In remembrance of his manv virtues, of his grate-
fid regard, and sincere affection to his wife, of
his fatherly affection to his children, of his com-
passionate care of the poor and friendless, and
of his benevolence to all,
This monument is erected, that the good
Maybe reverenced after they are gone hence, and

Are no more seen.
On him, who braves unhurt the battle's roar,
\\ ho wreck'd, still treads again his native shore ;
On him, secure in midnight's peaceful hour,
May rush, Death, thy desolating power.

There, Christian, watch, each hour instruct thine

To seek, to find, to hold that better part ;
So on thy pillow calmly close thine eye,
Nor tremble, though thy last dread foe be nigh,
Nor wake but in the morning of eternity.

Admiral Calmady was s. by his only sur-
viving son, Charles-Biggs Calmady, esq.
of Langdon Hall, the present representative
of this ancient family.

BRACEBRIDGE, CHARLES-HOLTE, esq. of Atherstone Hall, in the county of
Warwick, b. in March, 1799, m. in 1824, Selina, daughter of William Mills, esq. of
Bisterne, in the county of Hants.

Mr. Bracebridge succeeded to the representation of the family at the decease of his
father, 21st August, 1832.


This family derives from Turchill DE
"Warewick, a Saxon, who, at the period of
the Conquest, had the reputation of an
Earl, and its present representative still
retains of the original possessions of this
ancestor a rent pharge in Kingsbury, the
principal seat of the said Turchill. Dug-

dale says, that this noble Saxon, who was
descended from Guy, Earl of Warwick and
King Ethelstan, in imitation of the Norman
and his followers, assuming a surname,
adopted that of Arden, a designation given
to a woodland tract of the county of War-

Turchill de Warewick espoused, first,

, and had a son,

Seward de Arden, living temp. Hen-
ry I. who was father of

Henry de Arden, whose son,
Thomas de Arden, living in
the reign of John, contested
for some years with his kins-
man, John de Bracebridge,
the inheritance of Kingsbury,
but was eventually forced to
abandon his pretensions.
The earl m. secondly, Leverunia, with whom
he acquired the manor of Kingsbury, in the
county of Warwick, and by her had a son,
Osbert de Arden, whose service for the
manor of Kingsbury, Ranuph, Earl of
Chester, granted in the time of Stephen, to



Robert Marmion, of Tamworth Castle, and
his heirs. This Osbert had issue,
Osbert, his successor.
Amicia, of whom presently, as heir to
her nieces.
The son,

Osbert de Arden, Lord of Kingsbury,
had two daughters, his co-heirs, namely,

Adeliza de Arden, wife of Simon de

Amabil de Arden, wife of Robert Fitz

These ladies dyingboth issueless, the lord-
ship of Kingsbury devolved upon their aunt,
Amicia de Arden, wife of
Peter de Bracebridgg, who had as-
sumed his surname from a place so called,
near Lincoln, of which he was Lord. " This
Peter," says Dugdale, "was a militarie
man, for I find that he gave unto William,
the son of Fundus, and his heirs, certain
lands within the precinct of this lordship, to
the intent that the said William should,
upon lawful warning, carry hither to
Kingsbury, such painted lances from Lon-
don or Northampton at the charge of him,
the said Peter, as he might have occasion
to use in any tourneament then, and that
whensoever the said Peter should take a
journey beyond sea, for performance of
such martial exploits, he the said William
should attend to bring back his lances."
Peter Bracebridgg and his wife confirmed a
grant of lands, and the advowson of Kings-
bury Church, made by Osbert de Arden, to
the nuns of Mergate. The validity of this
grant was afterwards, unsuccessfully, con-
tested by Sir Ralph de Bracebridge. Peter
was s. at his decease by his elder son,

John de Bracebridgg, Lord of Kings-
bury, who encountered much difficulty in
defending his inheritance from his cousin,
Thomas de Arden ; but eventually suc-
ceeded. He d. issueless, in the 2nd of Hen-
ry III. and his estates devolved upon his

William de Bracebrigg, Lord of Kings-
bury, who was constituted, in the 19th of
Henry III. a justice of assize at Warwick.
This William confirmed to the monks of
Merevale the grant of a yard land in Holt,
made to them by John, his deceased brother ;
and whatsoever else the said John had given
to that monastery. He was s. at his decease
by his sou,

Sir Ralph de Bracebrigg, knt. Lord of
Kingsbury, who received the honor of knight-
hood in the 33rd of Henry III. He left at
his decease, a daughter, Matilda, m. to Tho-
mas de Clinton, and a son, his successor,

Sir John de Bracebrigg, knt. who in the
40th of Henry III. paid a fine of two marks
in gold to the king, that his knighthood
might be postponed for three years ; during
which dispensation being amerced at a mark

by the Justices Itinerant, in Lincolnshire,
for not being a knight, he obtained a special
mandate to the barons of the Exchequer,
for acquitting him of that penalty. Subse-
quently adhering to the barons, who took
up arms in the 48th of this reign, he was
made prisoner by the royal army, at the sur-
prisal of Northampton, confined at Shrews-
bury, and compelled to surrender his lord-
ship to Roger de Clitfofd. Obtaining his
liberty he fled with the younger Simon de
Montford, to the Isle of Arholme, where he
remained until the total discomfiture of his
party, when submitting, he regained his
lands under the " Dictum de Kenilworth."
He fell afterwards into such pecuniary em-
barrassments, owing to the heavy fines he
had to pay, that he was obliged to make a
lease of nearly his whole lordship, to Robert
de Typetot. He was s. at his decease by
his son.

Sir John de Bracebrigg, knt. who in
the 3rd of Edward II. had a special patent
from the crown, exempting him from serv-
ing upon juries, or executing the offices of
sheriff, escheator, coroner, &c. He d. in
six years afterwards, leaving a son,

Sir John de Bracebrigg, who was s. by
(his supposed uncle),

Sir Ralph de Bracebrigg, knt. who in
the 11th of Edward III. levied a fine of two
parts of the manor of Kingsbury ; and in
the 19th of the same monarch, had a mili-
tary summons to attend the king with horse
and arms into France. In three years
afterwards he had an especial patent of ex-
emption from the offices of sheriff, escheator,
&c. He was s. by his son,

Sir John de Bracebrigg, knt. at whose
decease the estates devolved upou his brother,

Sir Ralph de Bracebrigg, knt. styled in
an inquisition taken in the 1st of Henry IV.
" Frater Johannis de Bracebrigg Militis."
In the 7th of Henry V. Sir Ralph was sum-
moned the first amongst other persons of
note, " Arma portantes, de armis antiquis,"
as expressed in the writ, to attend the king
in person, for the defence of the realm. In
the same year he took a lease of the manor
house, park, &c. at Lutton, of Richard
Beauchamp, then Earl of Warwick, to hold
for life. He was afterwards retained by the
said earl, who was lieutenant-general of
France, to serve him with nine lances and
seventeen archers in defence of Calais.
This Sir Ralph de Bracebrigg, it appears,
(from an old MS. book of Sir Simon Archer,
the antiquarian friend of Dugdale) in 1414,
attended, with eleven other knights of
ancient family, Henry V. to Paris, on the
occasion of the coronation of Charles VI.
of France. His son,

of Lancaster, passed by a deed of sale to
him the inheritance of his manor and do-
mains. He m. first, Johanna, danghter of

father, but having, according to Dug-

debt, he eventually sold the remainder
