* Bv some of our historians this Ranulph is
styled Earl of Carlisle from residing in that city.
He was Lord of Cumberland and Carlisle by de-
scent from his father, but having enfeoffed his
two brothers, William of Coupland, and Geffery
of Gillesland, in a large portion thereof, he ex-
changed the earldom of Cumberland for that of
Chester, on condition that those whom he had
settled there, should hold their lands of the king

College, in 1583 ; where, after he
had gone through the servile duties
several years, he became a fellow :
whereupon entering into holy orders,
he became a most polite and learned
preacher. Afterwards travelling, he
was introduced to the acquaintance
of Cardinal Bellarmine, who shewing
to him the picture of Mr. Whitaker
of Cambridge, which hung up in his
library, told him, pointing to the pic-
ture, that he was the most learned
heretic that ever he read, or to that
effect. After his return he was made
chaplain in ordinary to Queen Eli-
zabeth, took the degree of D.D. in
1600, was made principal of St. Ed-
mund's Hall the year after, being at
that time rector of Islip, near to, and
in the county of Oxford, and soon
after chaplain in ordinary to King
James I. He was a person well ac-
complished in all kind of learning;
profoundly read in the fathers, and
in select divinity ; an accomplished
linguist ; and of an aquiline acumen ;

tells us."f

This gentleman, whose patronymic was Aspinshaw, as-

sign manual, the surname and arms of Staunton, of
Staunton only. Dr. Staunton is rector of Elton-super-
montem, and of Staunton-cum-Kelvington.


The family of Staunton,* which is of
great antiquity, can be regularly traced from
the time of the Conqueror, and though the
name has not been ennobled, the Staun-
tons have ever maintained the station,
scarcely less enviable, of respected country

Many of the branches have honorably
served the state in parliament, on the bench,
in the church, and in the army.

* There is a kind of rhyming bard-like pedigree
of this family, made by one Robert Cade, who
wrote a similar one for the Skeffingtons. It is of
considerable length, containing nearly 150 stanzas,
and transcribing all the epitaphs from the church.
The commencement is as follows :

Of Staunton's stocke the pryme

And pedegrewe define.

Deisney, in the county of Lincoln, by whom
he left at his demise in 1602, a son and heir,

Anthony Staunton, esq. of Staunton,

The tradition is that " Sir Matthew Palmer,
of Southwell, won him at bowls of Robert
Dallington, servant to Earl Roger, who
gave him to that gentleman in 1604, and
vi hen he, the said Sir Matthew had him, he
married him to his sister Frances. By this
lady (who married for her second husband
Robert Waring, of Wilford), he had a son
and successor,

William Staunton, esq. of Staunton, who
m. Anne, daughter of Edmund Waring, esq.
of Leycroft, in the county of Stafford. This

gentleman joined in 1642, the Royal Stand-
ard, at Nottingham, and thence attending
his Majesty, Charles I. to Shrewsbury and
Edge-Hill, obtained from his ill fated master,
a colonel's commission. He subsequently
raised a regiment of foot, and provided for
it at his own expense. This heavy outlay
with sequestration and composition money,
reduced and eventually quite ruined his
estate, for which he never afterwards ob-
tained any return. Colonel Staunton's second
but eldest surviving son,

Harvey Staunton, esq. of Staunton, in-
herited the remnant of his father's posses-
sions, and was last heir male of this ancient
family, after a continued male succession of
upwards of 500 years. He died s. p. m.
and left his estates to his eldest daughter,

any of the royal family honor Belvoir Cas-
tle with their presence, for the chief of the
Staunton family personally to appear and
present the key of the stronghold of the
castle (called Staunton's Tower,) to the

royal visitors. The ceremony was performed
by the Rev. Dr. Staunton, in virtue of his
tenure of the manor of " Staunton," com-
monly called " Castle Guard," with an ap-
propriate speech to the Prince Regent
(George IV.), when His Royal Highness
honoured the Duke of Rutland with his pre-
sence at the christening of the Marquess of
Granby, January, 1814. Dr. Staunton's son,
the Rev. William Job Charlton Staunton,
in consequence of his father's illness, per-
formed the same ceremony to H. R. H. the
Duke of Gloucester, with an appropriate
oration, when that prince paid a visit to
Belvoir Castle in 1833.
