Mr. Meynell s. his father on the 8th June, 1808, and is
in the commission of the peace for the county of Durham.
He is also a magistrate and deputy-lieutenant of the
North Riding of Yorkshire. In 1803, he raised a corps of
volunteers, consisting of three companies of infantry,
which he commanded during the period they were em-
bodied, with the rank of major. In 1825, Major Mey-
nell, being then chairman of the proprietors, laid the first
rail of the Stockton and Darlington railway, the first pub-
lic road of that description constructed in the kingdom.


Sometime in the twelfth century, Walter
de Maimll had a grant from his brother,
Roger de Hilton, of lands, in Snotterdon.
He was s. by his son,

Robert de Maimll, who had two sons,
William, who granted to Hugh, his
brother, the manor of Hiltum, Snot-
terdon, Hisilton, &c. and to these
grants is affixed a seal exhibiting the
same armorial ensigns as now borne
by the family.
The second son,

Hugh de Menell, to whom his brother
granted lands in, and the manors of Hilton,
in Cleveland, Snotterdon, in Durham, Hisil-
ton, &c. was living from 1203 to 1260. He
m. Margaret, and was s. at his decease by
his son,

ship, July 8, 1318.
The second son,

Nicholas de Meinell, of Hilton, by deed,
dated Durham, Tuesday after Pentecost, 15
years subsequent to the consecration of
Lewis.bishop of Durham, entered into agree-

ment with Adam de Meinill to levy a fine
to the said Adam of the manor of Snotter-
don, before the justices at Durham. The
name of this Nicholas de Meinell appears in
several charters from 1339 to 1360. He m.
Cecilia, daughter and heiress of Thomas de
Salcok, and had issue,

John, successor to his father, who
seems to have died without issue,
having entailed the manor of Hilton,
&c. upon his brother Robert.

Hugh, living in 1345.
The second son,

Robert Meinell, of Hilton, appears in
deeds, from the years 1393 until 1444. He
married twice, and left (with a daughter Ja-
netta, who m. first, Watkyn Paycock, and
secondly, Richard Kirkeby) a son and heir,
Thomas Meinell, who m. in July, 1417,*

nom, in the county of Durham, and died in
1447, as appears by bond, dated 33 Henry
VI. wherein Matthew Purton, the guardian

impleaded Richard Coke of Hilton, and
Jane, his wife, for the ahduction of the said
John Meinell, whose wardship had been
granted to him by Sir James Strangwayes
and others, Lords of Whorlton. Thomas
Meinell was s. by his son,

John Mennel, of Hilton, b. in 1432, who
was summoned as a grand juror, with twenty-
two other gentlemen, by Sir Nicholas Con-
stable, sheriff of Yorkshire, to meet the
King's justices at Middleham, Oct. 29, 1479.
He m. Jane, dau. of Richard Hansard, of
Walworth, in the county of Durham, and had
five sons, Robert, his heir, Thomas, Wil-
liam, Nicholas, and Anthony. The eldest

serjeant-at-law, in 1547. Upon the
decease of his younger brother,
Henry, he disputed the sanity of that
gentleman's mind at the time of ma-
king his will. He married Mary,
daughter of Thomas Pudsey, of
Barforth, in the county of York,
and dying in 1563, was found, by in-
quisition, taken at York Castle, the
same year, to have deceased, pos-
sessed of the manors of Hilton, Nor-
manby, Hawnby, &.c. He was s. by

hi. Anthony.
The third and youngest son,

Anthony Meynell, esq. was named joint
tenant, with his brother Henry, of a lease
of a farmhold in Kilvington, under his fa-
ther's will. In 1556, he purchased lands in
Scrooton of Sir Thomas Nevil, having pre-
viously, in conjunction with his brother
Henry, acquired from Wm. and John Sew-
ster, esqrs. all their lands in North Kilving-
ton, formerly belonging to the convent of
St. John of Egglestone, which had been
granted to them by Henry YIII. In 1558,
he bought lands in Thirsk, lately in the
possession of the monastery of Mount Grace.
And, also, in the same year, the manor of
Pickhall, in Yorkshire, of Thomas Nevil,
of Holt, for £950. He m. first, Elizabeth,
daughter of Wm.Greene, esq. of Landwarth,
in the county of York, by whom he had

Roger, his heir.

Richard, upon whom his father settled
a moiety of the manor of Pickhall,
in 1576. This gentleman added
greatly to his inheritance, by pur-
chase, in Thirsk, and elsewhere. He

furthe going of the Skottes, after this last St. Peter
day, called Lammas," was in substance as follows :
He bequeathed to his brother Robert all his lands in
Helsington, also his best horse or mare. He be-
queathed to his brother Anthony, all his other
lands, wheresoever to him and his heirs, with all
his goods moveable and immoveable, and all his
debts. And his said brother Anthony to find one
honest priest to sing three yeare for his soule, and
his father and mother's soule. He willed that his
said brother Anthony see " that Jane Bainton have
a lifting in sickness and in health, within his
house, or without, as he and she agreed, whether
she likes best, for she is a pore critor, and hath
been my servand longe, and she hath nothing to
liffe on ; and if it please God that I die in time of
peace at home," he bequeathed to Thornton-in-
the- Street Church, 6s. 8d. and to Hilton, 4s. to
pray for his father's, his mother's.andhis own soul."
A dispute arose between the brother, Robert
Meynell, the sergeant, and the nephew Roger
Meynell (son and heir of Anthony) relative to the
succession to Henry's estates, which was ulti-
mately decided by a decree of the court of the lord
president of the North, at York, the Earlof Rutland
president, dated June 18, 1562. After reciting that
Henry Meynell, uncle of Roger (the plaintiff)
being seized in fee of six messuages and six
hundred acres of land, in North Kilvington and
Thornaby, did, by his- will, devise the same to his
brother, Anthony Meynell, father of Roger, the
plaintiff, who conveyed them to the said Roger,
his son, and by virtue thereof, the said Roger
became seized in fee, and enjoyed the same until
disturbed by the said Robert Meynell, the ser-
geant, decreed that the said complainant, Roger
Meynell, should quietly enjoy the said premises.

inquisition * to have died without
issue. His daughter Isabella, wife
of James Danby, of Scruton, in the
county of York, fourth son of Sir
Christopher Danby, must have been
dead, probably issueless.

that place.

Anthony Meynell d. in 1576, and was s.
by his eldest son,

Roger Meynell, esq. of North Kilving-
ton, aged forty years and upwards at the
time of his father's decease. This gentle-
man wedded Margaret, daughter and coheir-
ess of Anthony Catterick, esq. of Stanwick,
in the county of York, by Elizabeth, daughter
and co-heiress of Rowland Tempest, esq. of
Holmside, in Durham, and had issue,

Roger Meynell, having joined in 1569,
the insurrection of the Earls of Northumber-
land and Westmoreland, was indicted of

Block- house, at Hull, and in the following
year imprisoned in York Castle. He ob-
tained however in 1604 a general pardon
under the great seal of James the First,
and in 1626 another from King Charles.

* This John Meynell dying intestate, adminis-
tration of his effects was granted to Stephen Kirk,
of Thornton-le-street, yeoman, 16th September,
1690. The account of his funeral expenses,
which is still preserved, states that two hundred
and eighty-eight gallons of ale, and an equally
amazing quantity of cakes and biscuits were con-
sumed. The total cost was paid out of the effects
of the deceased, by his uncle Major John Talbot,
of Wood End, who, upon the demise of his
nephew John Meynell, had taken possession of
his estates in Little Broughton and Dromanby.
About eight years subsequently to this event, in
consequence of rumours being circulated that
John Meynell had been murdered, Roger Mevnell
of North Kilvington, cousin of the deceased,
filed a bill against Major John Talbot, for the
recovery of the estates, which Major Talbot had
taken possession of. From the pleadings in the

Sussex, Lord President of the council in the
North, but obtained a pardon from Queen
Elizabeth, dated 13th of her reign ; not-
withstanding which, part of his lands were
confiscated to the crown. He d. in 1591, and
was s. by his elder son,

ton, b. in 1564. This gentleman, one of
the victims of religious persecution, was

ton : —

♦ According to other accounts, the second wife
of Anthony Meynell was Catharine, daughter of
Mr. Francis Howton, of F]ddlethorpe.

Roman Cathohc Recusant, conveyed his lands to
his two protestant uncles, Roger and John Talbot,
in order to avoid their seizure under the penal
statutes then in severe force on account of the
infamous plot of the perjured Oates ; but with the
implied understanding that his two uncles should
only hold them in trust for him. Nevertheless
upon the demise of John Meynell, Major John
Talbot claimed and took possession of the estates,
for the recovery of which the action was brought
by the heir at law, Roger Meynell, in whose
favour Sir John Trevor pronounced his decree.
From the interrogatories administered to the wit-
nesses, it appears that when suspicions of the
murder arose, Cuthbert Brown, the servant of the
deceased John Meynell, being apprehended and
examined before the magistrates at Ripon, con-
fessed the foul deed, and also declared at whose
suggestions he had committed it. When he was
however arraigned before the judges at York, he
refused to plead to the indictment, and standing
mute, suffered the punishment of the '' Peine
Forte et dure," and actually died under the horri-
ble infliction of pain. The interrogatories tend to
fix the guilt of instigation upon the uncle, Major
John Talbot.

sidered as such by his family, as his grand-
son William Meynell, in a letter dated
Cliffe, 12th December, 1670, addressed to
his nephew Roger Meynell, esq. of North
Kilvington, requesting payment of his
annuity, says, " Being hindered at present
from coming to see you, I have sent the
bearer to give my respects unto you, and to
bring me word, how you all keep your health
this cold wether, and in particular my little
godsonne, to whom I send my harty bless-
ing, wishing that he may live to the age and
goodness of his great-great-grandfather,
and then I believe, he will be both weary of
this world and fit for heaven." Thomas
Meynell died 13th July, 1653, leaving no
further issue, by his second wife Mary
Gale. He was s. by his elder son,
