In 1174,

John de Vallibus was one of the hos-
tages to the English, for the ransom of the
Scots' King, William. He was s. by his
nephew or cousin,

John de Vallibus, designed son of Robert
of Ellebottl. The son and heir of this John,
John de Vallibus, is called John the
younger, Dominus de Dirleton, when grant-
ing five marks yearly out of his Fair of St.
James's in Roxburgshire, as a composition
regarding his disputed patronage of Wilton.
This John in 1244, is mentioned as one of
the Magnates of Scotland, in the Pope's ra-
tification of the peace between England and
Scotland. In 1255 he was one of the Barons
who counselled, or rather forced, King
Alexander III. to change his ministers. His

John de Vaux, appears" to have been the

second husband of Dervorgill,* (the dau.
of Allan, Lord of Galloway, by Margaret,
eldest daughter of David, Earl of Hunt-
ingdon, third son of King David I. of
Scotland,) the widow of Sir John Baliol,
and mother of John Baliol, who claimed
and obtained the Crown of Scotland. He
sate in the parliament of Brigham, in 1290,
and the next year swore fealty at Berwick
to Edward I. In 1298 he defended the
Castle of Dirleton against the famous An-
thony Beke, Bishop of Durham. In 1304
he was a principal party to the agreement
between Edward of England, and John
Comyn, and according to Ryley's Placeta,
John Comyn, Edmund Comyn, John de
Graham, and John de Vaux, sealed this
agreement at Strathord, the 9th February,
33 Edward I. The sincerity of this sub-
mission seems to have been more than doubt-
ful, for in 1306, mention is made of him as
a friend of Robert Bruce. To this John

Thomas de Vaux, who is mentioned by
Guthrie, and Brady as being one of the sixty-
five Earls and Lords who led the Scotch
army at the battle of Halidon Hill, 19th
July, 1333. He was slain in 1346 at Nevil's
Cross, where also his successor,

William Vaux, was taken prisoner. After
being detained for some time in England, in
captivity, he returned to Scotland, and his
name appears in many of the transactions <
that period, especially as a party to ii:
ransom of King David II. He died in
1364, and was s. by his eldest surviving son,
William Vaux, who d. in 1392, and was
succeeded by two co-heiresses ; but whether
they were his own daughters or those of
his elder brother, Thomas, who had been
killed at the siege of Berwick, in 1355, is
uncertain. The elder wedded Sir John
Halyburton,f and the second, Sir Patrick
Hepburn, younger, of Hailes, ancestor to

* This second marriage of the grandaughter
of the Earl of Huntingdon, is not mentioned by
Wvntoun or others, but the evidence of it is to be
found in the Dryburgh Chart, (Nos. 126, 127, 1 28,
129 ) where is given a Charter by Alexander de
Baliol of the wood of Gleddiswood, " qui quon-
dam fuitcum Domni. Johannis de Wallibus, et

came (jure uxoris) Lord of Dirleton, ended, after
a few descents, in three sisters, viz.

the well known Earl of Bothwell, husband
to Queen Mary.

In his account of the Dirleton family,
Chalmers, (Caledonia, vol. ii. p. 436.) omits
several generations, and in vol. iii. page
396, talking of Wigtonshire, he makes a
curious mistake, for he considers the Barn-
barroch, and the Sheuchan families as dis-
tinct, whereas they are the same. On the
same page however he justly observes, " the
name has been changed from Vaus to
Vans, a change peculiar to this shire," and
although he does not dispute the Barnbar-
roch branch being descended from a younger
son of the Dirleton family, he thinks Alex.
Vaux, Bishop of Galloway in 1426, was
the first of his name in Wigtonshire.

Nisbet, vol. ii.App. p. 250, says positively,
that the Barnbarroch branch are the oniy
remaining heirs male of the Dirleton family,
that they descend from a younger son, and
although they have no charter older than
1451, yet "that the Vanses of this house
have subsisted long before that," Nisbet also
says, that, " now since they represent the
principal family, by the rules and maxims,
that are laid down in Herauldry, they may
strike out the mollet, the brotherly differ-
ence, and wear and carry the Bend Si?)iple,
as they have done for some centuries."
Tradition says the same, and that the first
Vaux in Wigtonshire married an heiress
there ; it is said a de Morville.

In " 1' Histoire des Malheures de la France
sous le Roi Jean," public a Paris chez
Barde, 1611, vol.ii. p. 103, it is stated, talk-
ing of the battle of Poictiers, (A.D. 1356.)
and of the Scots of note who fell there, " et
Andre Vaus de Gallovay, le frere d'armes du
Seigneur Archimbald." — Douglas. Barnes,
Hollingshed, Abercrombie, and others, men-
tion Sir Andrew Vaux to have been killed
at the battle of Poictiers ; and this Andrew
is believed to have been the younger brother
of Willielmus of Dirleton, to have settled
in Galloway, and to have been succeeded
by another Sir Andrew whose name ap-
pears in the settlement of the Scot's Crown,
made at Scone, 4th April, 1373, although in
Robertson's records the name is erroneously
given, Andreas de Valonius. His younger
son was Alexander, Bishop of Galloway from
1426 to 1451, and he was s. by his eldest,
John Vans, who was sent, in 1437, toge-
ther with Alexander Do nus de Gordon,
Alexander Do nus de Montgomery, and Jo-
hannis Methven, clericus, as ambassadors
from James II. of Scotland, to Henry VI.
of England ; and along with these persons
concluded a truce the following year. He
espoused E. Kennedy, and had issue,

Robert, his heir.

Ninian, who is believed to have been
Bishop of Galloway.

Martin, who was almoner and conf:ssor

to James III. and ambassador to
Denmark, in 1468.

John, of Lochslin,* in Rosshire.
The eldest son,

Robert Vans, acquired from the Earl
of Douglas, a charter of the lands of
Barnbarroch, dated 26th January, 1451,
which was ratified by the crown, 13th Au-
gust of the same year. This gentleman
wedded the Lady Euphemia Graham, of the
house of Menteth, who long survived him,
and became the third wife of Sir William
Stewart, ancestor of the Earl of Galloway.
By this lady he had issue,

Blaize, his heir.

Thomas, ambassador to England in
1457, dean of Glasgow, secretary to
the king, and keeper of the privy seal.

George, Bishop of Galloway.

III. by whom he left at his decease, in 1528,
a son and successor,

M'Culloch, of Myretoun, by Marion, daju. of

Battle of Pinkie, in 1547, was s. by his sou,

The very ancient family of Samwell was
originally of Cornwall, and seated at Res

that county.

this Cornish house, was grandfather of

* This gentleman, one of the most eminent po-
litical writers of the seventeenth century, received
his education at Trinity College, Oxford, under
the care of the celebrated Chilling-worth. Upon
first entering- into political life, though a zealous
republican in principle, he formed a strong perso-
nal attachment to King Charles I. and after ser-
ving for years, with the most constant fidelity,
attended, at length, his ill-fated monarch to the
scaffold, where he received, it is reported, a token
of his Majesty's affection. Retiring into private
life, during the protectorate, he devoted his leisure
to the production of his celebrated work, " The
Commonwealth of Oceana," which, by the order
of Cromwell was seized in the press, but restored
ao-nin through the medium of Mrs. Claypole, the
Usurper's favorite child, at whose suggestion it
was dedicated to her father, on its publication in

he declared that " the gentleman had wrote it very
well, but must not think to cheat him out of his
power and authority : for that which he had won
by the sword, he would not suffer himself to be
scribbled out of.''

The Oceana is a species of political allegory,
exhibiting in a fictitious land, the form of govern-
ment most conducive, in its author's opinion, to
public liberty.

In order still further to propagate his theories,
he instituted a nightlv meeting of several able and
ingenious men, in the New Palace Yard, West-
minster, which bore the name of " The Rota." —
This assemby terminated at the Restoration. The
discussions were warm and spirited, and the voices
of the members were taken by ballot, a mode
of voting first invented bv the society. Shortly
after the Restoration, Harrington was arrested for
a supposed plot against the government, and suf-
fered, in consequence, much hardship and seve-
rity. He eventually, however, procured his re-
lease, and espoused Katherine, daughter of Sir
Murmaduke Darrell. Hed. in 1677. Beside the
