Sir Thomas Preston, the third baronet, had
been a Roman Catholic priest until his bro-
ther's death ; but on that event he married
as stated in the text ; after his lady's death,
however, he resumed his sacerdotal charac-
ter and returned to its duties ; when he
settled the Westmoreland estates upon his
two daughters, and went beyond the seas,
(to Flanders, where he died circa 1710),
having previously settled the Lancaster
estate, the manor and abbey of Furness,
upon the Jesuits. The legality of this grant
was subsequently litigated, and the estate,
by the issue of a trial, adjudged to be for-
feited to the crown, which seized upon it in
consequence, and granted leases, and even-
tually the fee simple, to the Prestons of
Holker, who had been mainly instrumental
in bringing to light the illegal settlement
made by Sir Thomas Preston. But it must
be remembered that the Prestons of Holker
were not the right heirs of Sir Thomas, nor
could they ever have been while a male
descendant of the Prestons of Cockerham
was in existence.

(It may as well be stated here, that there
is in West's Furness an extremely in-
correct and imperfect pedigree of the
Prestons of the manor of Holker,
which entirely omits the Cockerham



branch ; whose existence is distinctly
proved by a pedigree in the Harl.
MSS. 1549, fol. 146, as well as by a
pedigree in the Herald's office.)

Anderton of Euxton.

The following extract from the Mer-
curius Politicus of August the 16th,
a republican paper, describing a visit
of King Charles II. to the Andertons
of Euxton. shows the violent spirit
of the times.

" August 14, 1650. This day Charles
Stuart lodged at Euxtonburgh, six miles on
this syde of Preston, being Sir Hugh An-
derton's house, who was prisoner at Lan-
caster, but sett at liberty by the Scotts.
This Anderton is a bloody papist, and one
that, when Prince Rupert was at Bolton,
boasted much of being in blood to the elbows
on that cruell massacre. The next night
tlieyr king lodged at Brine, six miles from
\\ arrington, being Sir William Gerard's
house, who is a subtile jesuited papist. This
dissembling Scott trusts none so well in
Lancashire for his hostes as the papists."

Mr. Coke has represented the county of Norfolk for several years in parliament. He
succeeded to the estates at the decease of his father in 1776.


The family of Coke, from which Mr. Coke
derives through female descent, and which
he now represents, is deduced by Camden,

William Coke, of Doddington, in the
county of Norfolk, mentioned in a deed, anno
1206, who was father, by his wife Felice, of

Geoffrey Coke, of Doddington, from
whom descended

Sir Edward Coke, the celebrated lawyer.
This eminent person, the son of Robert Coke,
esq. of Mileham, in the county of Norfolk,
and Winifred, his wife, daughter, and one of

the heirs of William Knightley, of Morgrave-
Knightley, in the same shire, was born at
the seat of his father, and at ten years of
age sent to the grammar-school at Norwich,
whence he removed to Trinity College, Cam-
bridge, where he studied for four years, and
was in some years afterwards chosen high-
steward of that university. From Cambridge
he removed to Clifl'ord's-Inn, and, the year
after, he was entered a student in the Inner-
Temple, whence he was called to the bar,
and being chosen reader in Lyon's-Inn, ac-
quired so much celebrity, that he very soon


attained considerable practice. About tbis
period lie married Bridget, daughter and co-
beir of John Paston, esq. of Hunting-field
Hall, in the county of Suffolk, third son of
Sir William Paston, of Paston, with whom
be acquired a fortune of thirty thousand
pounds. An alliance, too, that brought him
honours and preferments as well as wealth.
The cities of Coventry and Norwich soon
after elected him their recorder. The county
of Norfolk returned him to parliament, and
the House of Commons placed him in the
speaker's chair. In the 35th of Elizabeth
(1392), Mr. Coke was appointed Solicitor,
and the next year Attorney-general. In 1603
he received the honour of knighthood from
King James I. at Greenwich, and in three
years afterwards was elevated to the bench
as chief of the court of Common Pleas, from
which he was advanced, in 1613, to the dig-
nity of Chief Justice of England (being
the last person who bore that title), and
sworn of the privy council. His lordship
incurred subsequently, however, the displea-
sure of the court ; and while in disgrace,
bearing that a noble lord had solicited from
the crown a portion of the lands belonging
to the church at Norwich, which he had re-
covered, and settled thereon, he cautioned
the peer to desist, or that he would resume
bis gown and cap, and come into Westmin-
ster Hall once again, to plead the cause of
the church. Between bis paternal property,
the great marriage portion he had with his
wife, and his valuable offices and lucrative
practice at the bar, Sir Edward Coke realized
an estate so ample, that each of his sons pos-
sessed a fortune equal to that of an elder
brother. Camden, in his Britannia, says,
" that be was a person of admirable parts,
than whom, as none ever applied himself
closer to the study of the law, so never did
any one understand it better. Of which he
fully convinced England, by bis excellent
administration for many years together,
whilst attorney-general, and by executing
the office of Lord Chief Justice of the Com-
mon Pleas with the greatest wisdom and pru-
dence ; nor did he give less proof of his
abilities in his excellent Reports, and Com-
mentaries upon our Laws, whereby he has
highly obliged both his own age and poste-
rity." His lordship d. 3rd September, 1633,
at the advanced age of eighty-three. A no-
ble monument was erected to his memory at
Tittlesball church, Norfolk, with his effigies
habited in judge's robes, lying at full length,

under a canopy supported by two marble
pillars, on the top of which are four large
figures, and between the pillars two marble
tables, with these inscriptions: —

Marmore Perennius

Ipse sibi sua
