This gentleman, whose patronymic was Thornton, assumed, by sign manual, in
1807, the surname and arms of Astell. Mr. Astell is colonel of the Royal East
India Volunteers, a director of the East India Company, and has frequently filled
the chair of the court of Directors.


The family of Thornton, whence Mr.
Astell derives paternally, was settled at a
remote period in the county of York.

The Rev. Robert Thornton, M.A.
rector of Birkin, in that shire, was eminently
distinguished during the civil conflicts of the
reign of Charles I. for his loyalty to his
king and attachment to the church of En-
gland. His great and manifold privations
in those distressing times are fully related
in " Walker's Suilerings of the Clergy."
Mr. Thornton, who was removed from his
rectory during the Protectorate, but rein-
stated at the Restoration, died in 1665, and
lies interred in the church of Birkin, where
a monument is erected to his memory. His

nine children, buried her 3rd December,
1696, aged 65 years, and himself was laid

year of his age." Mr. Thornton had issue,

DELAFIELD, JOSEPH, esq. of Camden Hill, in the county of Middlesex, b 14th

May, 1749, m. 4th January, 1790, Frances, second
daughter of the late Hervey Christian Comhe, esq. of
Cohham Part, in Surrey, one of the members of parlia-
ment, for many years, for the city of London, by whom
he has had issue,


Edward-Hervey, who d. unmarried.

John, in holy orders, m. Lady Cecil-Jane Pery, daugh-
ter of the Earl of Limerick.


Frances-Henrietta, m. to the Rev. Thomas Rennell,
one of the prebendaries of Salisbury, eldest son of
the Very Rev. the Dean of Winchester.


Mr. Delafield is the second son of the late John Dela-
field, esq. but his elder brother, Count Delafield, having
established himself abroad, he is now the representative
of the family in England. The Count appears to be the un-
doubted heir to the ancient Barony of Fitz Warine,
which has been suspended for more than four centuries.


This family derives its descent from the
Counts de la Feld, the once powerful pro-
prietors of the demesnes and castle near
Colmar, of which the latter still bears their
name. These Lords had large possessions
in Alsace and Loraine, and are frequently
mentioned in the wars of those countries.
The Croix d'or of La Feld, their ancient
badge, is still the coat armour of the house
immediately before us.

It is probable that Hubertus de la Feld
was the first of his race that emigrated to
England ; and that he came over amongst
the crowd of foreigners who attended the
conqueror hither, his name appearing en-
rolled as the owner of lands in the county of
Lancaster, in the third of William I. The
name of John de la Feld occurs in the 12th
of Henry I. as a proprietor in the counties
of Lancaster and Bucks ; of Robert de la
Feld, without a date, and of John de la
Feld, in the 38th and 43rd of Henry III.
The last mentioned person,

John de la Feld, witnessed two deeds
in the same years on the marriages of his
son and daughter, viz.

John, of whom presently.
Elizabeth, who m. (43d Henry III.)

Norman D'Arcy, of Nocton, in the
county of Lincoln, and had issue,

Philip D'Arcy, who was summoned
to parliament as Lord D'Arcy,
in 1299.

John (Sir), D'Arcy, a very distin-
guished personage in the reigns
Edward I., Edward II., and Ed-
ward III. In the two latter he
was Justice of Ireland, and was
summoned to parliament as a
Baron in 1332. He m. first,
Emeline, dau. and co-heir of
Walter Heron, of Hedleston, in
Northumberland, and secondly,
Joane, daughter of Richard de
Burgh, Earl of Ulster, and widow
of Thomas Earl of Kildare. By
the first, he had three sons, and
by the second, a son William,
and a daughter Elizabeth, m. to
James, Earl of Ormonde, sur-
named the noble Earl.

Robert D'Arcy, of Starlingburgh,
in the county of Lincoln.
The son,

John de la Feld, espoused in the 38th of
Henry III. Elizabeth Fitzwarine, (whose



father was Lord Warden of the Marches in
the North,) and had three sons, John, Ro-
bert or Hubert, and Nicholas, of whom, the

John de la Feld, married in the 15th of
Edward I. Maude, daughter and heir of
Montaeute, by whom he had two sons,
Robert, or Hubert,
John. Canon of the abbey church, at
The elder

Robert (or Hubert) de la Feld, wed-
ded in the 11th of Edward II. his cousin,
the daughter and heir of Fulke Fitzwarine,
and was s. by his son,

John de la Feld, who espoused in the
23d of Edward III. Margaret de Tyring-
ham, and had three sons, Thomas, Robert,
and Nicholas. The eldest,

Thomas de la Feld, wedded in the 45th
Edward III. Elizabeth, his kinswoman,
daughter of Thomas Butler, second son of
Thomas, Earl of Ormonde, and great-great-
granddaughter of Elizabeth De la Feld,
wife of Norman D'Arcy. He fell soon after
his marriage in the French wars, and leaving
no issue, was s. by his brother,

Robert de la Feld, who to. in the 51st
of Edward III. Elinor Butler, sister of his
brother's wife, and co-heir with her of their
father the Hon Thomas Butler. By this
lady lie had, with a daughter Anne, abbess
of a convent at Lancaster, a son and suc-

Robert de la Feld, who wedded 12th of
Henry IV. Alice, daughter and heiress of
Sir Reginald de Grey, and was s. by his

self of Ailesbury in England, and of the
Lordships of Fieldston and Culduffe, in the
county of Kildare, in Ireland. This gentle-
man to. in the 16th Henry VI. Katherine,
only daughter of Sir Thomas de Rochfort,*

* Bv Elizabeth, only daughter and heirof John
D'Arcy, by Joane, only, or as some assert eldest
daughter and co-heir of John Fitzwarine, son and
heir of William Fitzwarine, summoned to parlia-
ment 16th Edward III. as Lord Fitz Warine. In
Burke's Extinct and Dormant Peernge there is an
evident mistake regarding this Lord Fitz Warine
and his descendants, who are confounded with
those- of Robert, Lord Fitzpayne. Lord Fitz-
warine left an only son, Ivo or John Fitzwarine,
who was with the Earl of Buckingham at the
6iege of Nantz, and after that, in 9th Ric. II. with
the Duke of Lancaster in his naval expedition for
the recovery of the inheritance of Constance, his
wife, heir to the kingdom of Castile. His daugh-
ter, Joane, m. John D'Arcy, by whom she had
an only child, the above-mentioned Elizabeth
D'Arcy, who wedded Sir Thomas de Rochfort.

by whom (who wedded secondly, Thomas
Luttrell, esq. of Luttrelstown, ancestor of
the Earls of Carhampton) he had a son,

Sir John Delafeld, who wedded, in the
35th of Henry VI. Elizabeth Hankford,
sister of Sir Richard Hankford,f and had

Thomas, his heir.

Gerald, who to. an heiress and assumed
her surname and armorial ensigns,
though his son resumed the family
name, but retained his mother's coat
armour, viz. or, a lion gu. and arg.
Catherine, to. in the 18th of Edward
IV. Sir Richard Barnewall, and con-
veyed to her husband the lordship
of Fieldston. Their descendant in
the fifth degree, Nicholas Barne-
wall, ofTurvey, was created in 1646,
Baron Turvey, and Viscount Barne-
wall, of Kingsland.
The elder son,

Sir Thomas Dei afield, to. in the 21st of
Edward IV. Margaret, daughter and heir
of Ralph Howard (descended from the
Howards of Fersfield), and had a son, John,
and a daughter, Isabel ; which John having
removed with the court, to Calais in 1500,
on account of a great pestilence then raging
in England, and not returning for several
years, it was supposed by his family that
he had perished ; and Isabel, his only sis-
ter, being married to Gerald Fitzgerald, of
Alloone (descended from Maurice, first
Knight of Kerry, and son of John, fourth
Lord of Offaley), took the lordship of Cul-
duffe into that family, for which the Fitz-
geralds of Alloone quartered the arms of
Delafield. She had issue, Bartholomew
Fitzgerald, married to Anne Aylmer ; and
Alison Fitzgerald, to. to Gerald Aylmer,
ancestor to the Lords Aylmer. In some
years afterwards,

John Delafield returned, after a long
absence, to the great joy of his family, and
married Thomasine, the " faire daughter"
of Sir Thomas Dillon, ancestor of the Earls
of Roscommon. He had two sons, Gerald,
the younger, married Elinor Plunket, of the
Killeen family, and the elder,

t Sir Richard Hankford's only daughter and
heiress, Anne Hankford (niece of Lady Dela-
feld ), espoused Thomas Butler, Earl of Ormonde,
and had two daughters, namely,

Anne Butler, m. to Sir James St. Leger.
Margaret Butler, m. to Sir William Bo-
leyne, K.B. their son,

Sir Thomas Boleyne, was created Vis-
count Rochford, and Earl of Wilt-
shire and Ormonde. He was father

consort of Henry VI 11.

cessor. This gentleman espoused Margaret
Fleming, grandaughter of the Lord Slane,
and was s. by his son,

Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas Cusack, esq.
of Gerardstown, and his wife, the Hon. Anne
