b. in 1775, s. to the estates upon the demise of his father in 1808, and served the office
of high sheriff of Leicestershire, in 1815.




The family of Winstanley is of remote
antiquity in the county of Lancaster, the
name occurring in the records of that shire,
as far back as the reign of Henry III.
Among its early progenitors, Sir Thomas
Winstanley is mentioned by Froissart and
Barnes, as one of the knights attendant upon
the Elacfe $rtiue, in his expedition into
Spain, to place Don Pedro upon the throne.
The successors of this gallant warrior, ally-
ing with the houses of Standish, Worsley,
Waller, Longton, &c. remained seated at
Winstanley, in Lancashire, until the close
of the sixteenth century, when James Win-
stanley, of Winstanley, one of the poor
knights of Windsor, is presumed to have
alienated to the Bankeses, the patrimonial
mansion and estates.

James Winstanley, esq. b. in 1600, a
scion of the Lancashire family, was admitted
of Grav's Inn in 1624, and was appointed
recorder of Leicester in 1653. He had pre-
viously, 25th May, 1650, purchased the
manor of Braunston from the Hastings.
He espoused Catherine, daughter of Clement
Moss, esq. and had issue,

1. Clement, his heir.

2. Susanna, m. first to — Austin, esq.
of Derhams, near Barnet, but had no
issue. She espoused secondly, Sir

Edmund Prideaux, bart. of Netherton,
and had a son,
Sir Edmund Prideaux, bart. who
m. first, Mary, daughter of Sa-
muel Reynardson, esq. of Hil-
lingdon, in Middlesex, by whom
he had an only daughter,

Mary (co-heir), who wedded
James Winstanley, esq. and
had issue.
Sir Edmund espoused secondly,
Anne, daughter of Philip Haw-
kins, esq. of Pennans, in Corn-
wall, by whom he had another

Anne (co-heir), m. to John
Pendarves Basset, esq. of
Tihiddy, and had a son,
John Prideaux Basset,
esq. who d. unmarried
in 1756, when the es-
tates of the Bassets de-
volved upon Francis
Basset, his uncle. The
eldest son of this Fran-
cis was afterwards ele-
vated to the peerage as
Baron de Dunstan-
ville. (See Burhe's
3. Catherine, m. to Colonel Silas Ti-

* This celebrated person was son of Silas Titus,
of Bushey, Herts, gent. He was b. in 1612-13 —
entered a commoner of Christ Church, Oxford, in
1637, and became, about 1640, a member of one
of the inns of court. In the grand Rebellion,
when the Parliament raised an army against the
king, he obtained a captain's commission, but dis-
approving of the course pursued by the Indepen-
dants, abandoned his colours for the royal stan-
dard, and was subsequently of eminent service to
the two Charleses. Colonel Titus was a man of
wit, and author of the celebrated pamphlet, secretly-
published, called " Killing no Murder." In this
satyrical production, several cogent reasons are
offered to the Usurper, why he should put him-
self to death. Cromwell is said to have been
exceedingly terrified, and to have doubted whether

interred at Edmonton, in Middlesex. He was

Francis Willoughby, knt. M.P. for Notts,
and dying in 1672, was s. by his son,

James Winstanley, esq. of Braunston.
This gentleman represented the borough of
Leicester from 1701 until his decease in
1718-19. He in. Frances, daughter and
co-heir of James Holt, esq. of Castleton, in
the county of Lancaster, and had issue,
James, his heir.
Robert, d. unmarried.

man, of the city of London, an emi-
nent brewer there.
Elizabeth, m. to Thomas Herrick, esq.

of Newark, and d. in 1757.
Cassandra, d. unmarried in 1797.
Mr. Winstanley was s. at his decease, in

James Winstanley, esq. of Braunston,

cousin, Mary, daughter and co-heir of Sir

he should not follow the author's advice, to avoid
the pistol of the assassin. Titus, who was not
known to be the author till after the Restoration,
had a colonel's commission given him by King
Charles II, who made him one of the grooms of
his bedchamber. He sometimes, to divert the
king, or sink a declining favorite, practised buf-
fooneries, better suited to Bartholomew Fair than
to the court of a prince, who certainly understood
decorum and politeness. Though Titus had
I .leaded strongly in parliament for the exclusion of
the Duke of York, he was* no less urgent for the
abolition of the test and penal laws, as the surest
bulwark against Popery. In the reign of King
.1 \mes, he was sworn of the privy council. He d.

Clement Winstanley, esq. who served
the office of sheriff for the county of Leices-
ter, in 1774, and the respect evinced towards
him upon that occasion, at the assizes, by
the gentlemen of the shire, is worthy of ob-
servation. They arrayed themselves in blue
coats with crimson collars, and attended him
from his seat at Leicester, in something like
military order. During the shrivalty of
Mr. Winstanley, the great contest for the
county occurred between John Peach Hun-
gerford and William Pochin, esquires, in
the progress of which the sheriff received
the compliments of both parties, for his im-
partiality and integrity. He m. Jane,
eldest daughter of Sir Thomas Parkyns,
bart. of Bunny, and sister of the first Lord
Rancliffe, by whom he had four sons and
