JOLLIFFE, JOHN-TWYFORD, esq. of Ammerdown Park, in the county of
Somerset, inherited the estates at the decease of his father, in 1824.


The family of Jolliffe, originally Jolli,
is of considerable antiquity in the counties
of Stafford and Worcester, and the pedigree,
in possession of the senior members, com-
prises intermarriages with many eminent
and noble houses. One branch established
in the north, enjoyed, it appears from au-
thentic records, power and affluence, even
before the institution in Europe of heredi-
tary honors.

John Jolli, living about the middle of
the 16th century, was father of

Thomas Jolli, of Leek, in the county of
Stafford, and of Buglawton, in Cheshire,
who m. Margaret, daughter of Laurence
Swettenham, of Somerford, and was s. by

(who died 6th January, 1647), he left sur-
viving issue,

Benjamin, his heir.

Anne, m. to Alexander Fitton, esq. of

Gauseworth, in Cheshire.
— , m. to Tilston Brayne, esq. of Staple-
He wedded secondly, Mary, daughter of
Sir Gabriel Low r e, knt. of Newark, and by
that lady (who died in 1663) had another
son, William, who died unmarried in 1680.
Mr. Jolliffe died in 1694, and was s. by his

who espoused Mary, daughter of John Jol-
liffe, esq. of London, and sister of Sir Wil-

ham Pytches, knt. of Streatham,
and was s. at his decease by his
eldest son, the present Sir Wil-
liam George Hylton Jolliffe,

ii. Thomas-Samuel, of whom presently.

The following lines by Savage, entitled
the " Portraiture of a Gentleman," are
known to have been intended for Mr. Jol-
liffe :

A graceful mien, engaging in address ;
Looks which at once each winning charm express ;
A life, where love, by wisdom polish'd, shines,
Where wisdom's self again, by love, refines;
Where we to chance for friendship never trust,
Nor ever dread from sudden whim disgust ;
To social manners, and the heart humane ;
A nature ever great, and never vain ;
A wit that no licentious coarseness knows :
The sense, that unassuming candour shows :
Reason, by narrow principles uncheck'd,
Slave to no party, Bigot to no sect ;
Knowledge of various life, of learning too ;
Thence taste, thence truth, which will from taste

ensue ;
Unwilling censure, though a judgment clear ;
A smile indulgent, and that smile sincere !
An humble, though an elevated mind ;
A pride, its pleasure but to serve mankind :
If these esteem and admiration raise,
Give true delight and gain unflatt'ring praise ;
In one bright view the accomplished man we

see ; —
These graces all were thine, and thou wert he.

Mr. Jolliffe was succeeded, at his decease,
in 1771, by his son,

Thomas-Samuel Jolliffe, esq. M.P. for
Petersfield, who wedded, in 1778, Mary-

Anne, daughter and heiress of — Twyford,
esq. of Kilmersdon, in the county of So-
merset, by whom he had issue,

John-Twyford, his heir.
Thomas-Robert, in holy orders.
Charles, an officer in the army, who

fell at Waterloo.

Mr. Jolliffe died on the 6th June, 1824, at
the close of the seventy-eighth year of his
age. The following particulars of this ex-
cellent country gentleman appeared in the
Bath Herald of that period.

" Descended from an ancient family,
which dates its origin from the incursion of
the Norman Conqueror, and collaterally
allied to some of the chief nobles of the
Kingdom, Mr. Jolliffe filled an elevated
station in society with distinguished ability
and credit. Of late years he resided almost
entirely in the country ; but he formerly
mingled in the brilliant circles of the Me-
tropolis, and sate in several parliaments,
during the government of Lord North, and
the first poriod of Mr. Pitt's administration.
In the House of Commons, as in every other
situation, he sustained the character of a
high minded and scrupulously honorable
gentleman. Of the disinterested and upright
principle which universally governed his
conduct, he early in life gave an eminent
proof, by resisting a very flattering over-
ture, which embraced high hereditary rank,
as well as pecuniary emolument, rather than
desert those connexions whose political
views he had conscientiously adopted. Mr.
Jolliffe had considerable property in various
parts of England ; but his chief estates were
in Somersetshire, for which county he was
several years since, appointed high-sheriff,
and served the office with a degree of splen-
dour, which has seldom been equalled ; the
whole of his retinue on that occasion being
selected from his principal tenantry. As a
magistrate, he was acute, active, humane, up-
right, intrepid, and intelligent ; his opinions
were received with the sincerest deference,
and his decisions heard with respectful
acquiescence. On the institution of the
Fencible Dragoons, at an important crisis
of the late war, he was appointed to the
rank of Lieutenant Colonel ; a situation for
which he was peculiarly qualified by his
habits of activity, his address in the manage-
ment of his horse, and his personal accom-
plishments. Since the reduction of the
regiment, he has resided almost exclusively
on his extensive domain ; where in the
calm scenes of domestic retirement, he be-
came the centre of a grateful and admiring

In the 17th Henry VIII. we find Sir Ste-

(anno 1537) he received his majesty's par-
don. Rebelling* a second time with the
Lord Darcy, and his brother-in-law, Sir
Francis de Bigod, he was taken prisoner,
conveyed to London, and executed and
attainted. The estates of this unfortunate
gentleman falling under the attainder, Hel-
lifield Peel remained vested in the crown,

the name of " the manor of Hellifield, with

Sir Arthur Darcy, knt. and by him, in the
next reign, transferred to John Redman,

ried the granddaughter of the attainted Sir
Stephen Hamerton. In the 3rd of Eliza-
beth, this John Redman passed the manor
to the nephew, and next male heir of the said
