Sir Thomas Blount, Lord of
Belton, who, with his kins-
man, Nicholas, having en-
gaged in the attempt to
restore Richard II. to the
throne, in the year 1400,
suffered a most cruel death,*

* Sir Thomas Blount was hanged ; but the
halter was soon cut, and lie was made to sit on a
*>ench before a great fire, and the executioner
came with a razor in his hand, and knelt before
Sir Thomas, whose hands were tied, begging him
to pardon him his death, as he must do his office.
Sir Thomas asked, "Are you the person appointed
to deliver me from this world 1" — The executioner
answered, " Yes, Sir, I pray you pardon me."
And Sir Thomas kissed him, and pardoned him
his death. The executioner then knelt down, and
opened his belly, and cut out his bowels, and
threw them into the fire. While Sir Thomas was
dying, one Erpyngham, the king's chamberlain,
insulting Blount, said to him, in derision, " Go,
seek a master that can cure you." — Blount only
answered, — " Te Deum laudamus ! Blessed be
the day on which I was born, and blessed be this

Lord Blount espoused secondly,
Elizabeth Fourneaux, and had
other children that d. s. p.
2. Nicholas, father of another Nicholas,
of whom we are about to treat.
The grandson of Sir Thomas le Blount (the
son of his second son),

Nicholas le Blount, having taken an
active part in the insurrection, which proved
so fatal to his cousin Sir Thomas le Blount,
was outlawed and forced to fly the kingdom.
Repairing with other refugees to the cour
of Milan, he entered into the military ser-
vice of the accomplished John Galeazzo
Viscompti, who was then at war with the
emperor, and who eventually, after routing
them at Brescia, drove the imperialists out
of Italy. The Duke acknowledged with
gratitude the merits of the English, and the
splendid rewards whicli he conferred upon
them, were worthy of the magnificent house
of Viscompti. Nicholas le Blount subse-
quently returned to England, but in doing
so adopted the precaution of changing his
name, as did several other of his compa-
nions, amongst whom were John Carring-
ton, who took the name of Smith, the an-
cestor of the extinct Lords Carrington, and
William Fitzwilliams, who assumed that of
English ; Blount chose the cognomen of
Croke.* He m. Agnes, daughter and
heiress of John Heynes by Alicia Athall,
and was s. by his son,
James Croke, alias le Blount, whose son,
Richard Croke, espoused a lady named
Alicia, but of what family is not related.
He was s. by his son,

John Croke, esq. who was appointed in
1522 one of the Six Clerksf of the Court of
Chancery, and in seven years afterwards
obtained a patent for life as Comptroller
and Supervisor of the Hanaper in the same
court. In the reign of Edward VI. he
was constituted a Master in Chancery. In
1529 Master Croke had purchased the
estate and manor of Chilton, in Bucks,
from Lord Zouch, and, in 1539, bought
from the crown the priory of Studley,
with all the possessions thereunto belonging.

day, for I shall die in the service of my sovereign
lord, the noble King Richard." His head was
soon after cut off, and he was quartered.

leian Library, &c. &c.

t As the chancellor had been almost always an
ecclesiastic, these officers were anciently actual
cleri, or in holy orders, and were regularly pro-
moted to livings under the chancellor's patronage.
As clergymen, they were incapable of marrying,
and even when they ceased to be in orders the
ancient custom of celibacy continued, a restraint
which was confirmed by an ordinance in Chan-
cery, 12th of Richard 11. and was observed until
the reisjn of Henry VIII.



He wedded Prudencia, third daughter of
Richard Cave, esq. of Stamford-upon-Avon,
and sister of Sir Ambrose Cave, Chancellor
of the Duchy of Lancaster, a most intimate
friend and near connexion of the Lord
Treasurer Burleigh. He d. in 1554, and
was s. by his son,

Sir John Croke, knt. of Chilton, b. in
1530, returned to parliament for the bo-
rough of Southampton in 1571, and for the
county of Bucks in the following year. He
wedded, in 1533, Elizabeth, daughter of
Sir Alexander Unton,* knt. and had is-

' I. John (Sir), of Chilton and Studley,
an able and eminent lawyer, who
succeeded Sir Edward Coke as Trea-
surer of the Inner Temple in 1598,
and was subsequently appointed Re-
corder of London, and chosen one of
the representatives of that city. In
the last memorable parliament called
by Queen Elizabeth, he was elected
Speaker of the House of Commons,
and the manner of his appointment
has been most curiously related by a
contemporary writer, Sir Simonds
D'Ewes. In the 1st year of James I.
he received the honor of knighthood,
and was made serjeant-at-law. Sir
John was afterwards constituted
king's serjeant, and a Welsh judge ;
and he succeeded Sir John Popham,
as one of the justices of the Court of
King's Bench, in the 5th of the same
reign. The arguments of Sir John
Croke at the bar, and his decisions
from the bench, evinced the pro-
foundest professional knowledge ; in
testimony of which he received from
the Lord Chancellor (Sir Christopher)
Hatton a bowl of silver gilt. He m.

* The family of Unton was one of the most
influential in the county. Sir Hugh Unton, great
grandfather of Lady Croke, married Sybell, dau.
and heiress of William Fettiplace, esq. of Shiftbrd,
by Beatrice, natural daughter of John I. King of
Portugal, and sister of Alphonso, Duke of Bra-

nent lawyers of the period in which
he lived, who after passing through
the minor gradations of office, was
constituted, in 1628, one of the judges
of the Court of King's Bench. In
the unconstitutional proceedings of
the misguided Charles I. previous
to the breaking out of the Civil War,
Sir George Croke did not concur,
and, unterrified by the menaces, and
uninfluenced by the fascinations of
power, followed upon every occasion
the dictates of his conscience, always
raising his voice in favor of the rights
of the people. In the celebrated case
of Hampden, after five of the judges
had delivered their opinions for the
crown, Mr. Justice Croke gave his in
favor of that celebrated patriot. In
1621, Sir George purchased Studley
from Sir John Croke, of Chilton,

Lee, esq. of Hartwell, and hence
