the Cornish Archers, which was seated near
the Lizard, became extinct in the reign of
Edward IV. when the heiress wedded Le-
veies of St. Burian, in the church whereof
their ensigns are constantly traced in old
carved work amongst the quarterings of
other families. Upon the extinction of this
branch the representation devolved on the
Archers of Trelaske.

John Archer (whose father married —
Swete, of Modbury, in Devon) espoused the
sister and heiress of Samuel Addis, of White-
ford, and left, with other issue, at his de-
cease in 1726,

Swete Nicholas Archer, esq. of Tre-
laske, who served the office of sheriff for

Cornwall in the year 1758. He m. Anne

was sheriff of Cornwall in 1794. This gen-
tleman espoused TheophilaFreno, by whom
(who d. in 1798) he had no issue. Mr. Ar-
cher died at Plymouth, whither he had
gone for the benefit of his health, and was
buried in the family vault at Lewannick.
He was s. at his decease by his brother,

Samuel Archer, esq. who wedded Do-
rothy-Ayre, daughter of the Rev. John
Yonge, of Portlinch, in the county of Devon,
by whom (who d. in 1797) he had issue,

Edward, his heir.

CURWEN, HENRY, esq. of Workington Hall, in the county of Cumberland, b. 5th

December, 1783, m. 11th October, 1804, Jane, daughte-
j^P"^ of Edward Stanley, esq. of Whitehaven, and has issue,

iv'iV i John, his heir.

January, 1833, Frances, dau. of Edward Jesse,
esq. of Hampton Court, in Middlesex.

Henry, of Trinity College, Cambridge.



Isabella, m. to the Rev. John Wordsworth, rector
of Moresby, in Cumberland.



Mr. Curwen s. his father on the 9th December, 1828.
He is in the commission of the peace for Cumberland,
and high sheriff the present year.




" Workington (says Camden) is now the
seat of the ancient knightly family of the
Curwens, descended from Gospatric, Earl
of Northumberland, who took that name by
covenant from Culwen, a family of Gallo-
way, the heir whereof they had married.
They have a stately castle-like seat ; and
from this family (increaseth vanity) I myself
am descended by the mother's side."

Ivo de Talboys, first Lord of Kendal,
brother of Fulk, Earl of Anjou and King of
Jerusalem, espoused Elgiva, daughter of
our Saxon monarch Etheldred, and was
father of

Eldred or Etheldred, second feudal
Lord of Kendal, who m. Adgitha, and was
s. by his son,

Kitel, third Baron of Kendal. This
feudal lord married a lady named Chris-
tiana, as appears by his grant of the Church
of Morland to the Abbey of St. Mary's in
York, to which she was a subscribing wit-
ness. By her he had issue,

I. Gilbert, successor to the barony of
Kendal, whose son,
William, assumed, according to
Dugdale, from being governor
of Lancaster Castle, the surname
of Lancaster. From him de-
John de Lancaster, who was
summoned to parliament as
a baron in 1299. (See
Burkes Extinct Peerage.)
ii. Orme.
hi. William.
The second son,

Orme, wedded Gunilda, sister of Wal-
dieve, first Lord of Allerdale, son of Gos-
patrick, Earl of Dunbar, and acquiring by
grant from the said Waldieve the manor of
Seaton, below Derwent, parcel of the barony
of Allerdale, took up his abode there ; he
had also by the same conveyance the towns
of Camberton, Crayksothen, and Flemingby.
The walls and ruins of the mansion-house of
Seaton, Mr. Denton states to have been
visible in his time. Orme was *. by his

Gospatric, to whom Alan, second Lord
of Allerdale, his cousin german, gave High
Ireby, which remained vested in a younger
branch of the Curwens, which terminated
in female heirs. This Gospatric was the
first of the family who was Lord of Work-
ington, having exchanged with his cousin,
William de Lancaster, the lordship of Mid-
•dleton in Westmorland for the lands of
Lamplugh and Workington in Cumberland.

In this bargain De Lancaster retained to
himself and his heirs an annual rent charge
of 6d. to be paid at the fair of Carlisle, or
a pair of gilt spurs, binding Gospatric and
his heirs to do homage, and to discharge his
foreign service for the same to the barony
or castle of Egremont. Gospatric had, with
four younger sons (Gilbert, Adam, Orme,
and Alexander), his successor,

Thomas, called after the fashion of those
times, son of Gospatric. To this Thomas,
one Rowland, son of Ughtred, son of Fergus,
gave the lordship of Culwen, in Galloway.
He d. 7th December, 1152, having had

Thomas, who m. Joan, daughter of
Robert de Veteripont, but died in the
lifetime of his father, leaving an only
daughter, who wedded Harrington,
of Harrington.

Alan, who acquired by gift of his bro-
ther Patric the lands of Camerton,
and thence deriving their surname,
the Camertons descend from him.
This Thomas, son of Gospatric, granted
Lamplugh to Robert de Lamplugh and his
heirs, to be holden by the yearly present-
ment of a pair of gilt spurs. To his second
son, Patric, he had given, while his eldest
son was living, the lordship of Culwen, in
Galloway, and the said Patric assuming his
surname therefrom, became

Patric de Culwen ; his elder brother
dying subsequently without male issue, he
succeeded to the entire estate, and was
thenceforward designated " Patric de Cul-
wen, of Workington." He was s. by his
eldest son,

Thomas de Culwen, of Workington, who
was s. at his decease by his brother,

Gilbert de Culwen, of Workington, who
left, by his wife Editha, a son and heir,

Gilbert de Culwen, of Workington, who
d. in the third of Edward III. and was s.
by his son,

Sir Gilbert de Culwen, of Workington,
who was returned to parliament by the
county of Cumberland in the 47th, 48th,
and 50th of Edward III. He died in the
seventh of the next reign, and was s. by his

Sir Christopher de Culwen, of Work-
ington. This gentleman, like his father,
represented his native county in several
parliaments. He was sheriff of the same
shire in the second and twelfth of Henry
VI. by the name of Culwen, and in the
sixth of the same reign by that of Curwen,



to which latter cognomen the family has
ever since adhered. Sir Christopher was s.
hy his son,

Sir Thomas Curwen, of Workington,
M.P. for Cumberland, who d. 3rd Edward
IV., and was s. by his son,

Sir Christopher Curwen, of Working-
ton, living temp. Henry VII. who left at his
decease a son and successor,

Sir Thomas Curwen, of Workington.
This gentleman d. in the 34th of Henry
VIII., and in that year, by an inquisition of
knight's fees in Cumberland, it was found
that he held the manor of Workington of
the king by knight's service, as of his castle
of Egremont. He was possessed at the same
time of the manor of Thornthwaite, and of
one third of Bothill, with the manors of Sea-
ton and Camerton, and divers tenements in
Gilerouse, Great Broughton, and Dereham.
He was s. by his son,

Sir Henry Curwen, of Workington, who
had the honor of affording an asylum in his
mansion-house to the Queen of Scotland,
Mary Stuart, when that unhappy princess
sought the protection of England, and had
the good feeling to treat the fallen sovereign
with the deference due to her princely sta-
tion and the kindness claimed by her mis-
fortunes. The queen remained at Working-
ton until removed by Elizabeth, first to
Cockermouth Castle and then to Carlisle.
The apartment in which her majesty slept
bears still the name of the " Queen's Cham-
ber." Sir Henry m. first, Mary, daughter
of Sir Nicholas Fairfax, and had a son
Nicholas, his successor. He wedded, se-
condly, Jane Crosby, and had
George, who d. s. p.
Thomas, who left, with two younger
Darcy, who had

Eldred, who s. his brother, and
subsequently his cousin, Hen-
ry Curwen, esq. of Working-
ton, when he became repre-
sentative of the family.
Sir Henry, who represented Cumberland in
parliament, in the 6th of Edward VI. and
1st Elizabeth, was s. at his decease in the
35th of the latter reign, by his eldest son,

Sir Nicholas Curwen, of Workington,
M.P. for Cumberland, who wedded, first,
Anne, daughter of Sir Simon Musgrave, but
had no issue. He m. secondly, Elizabeth,
daughter of Judge Cams, and dying 2nd of
James I. left a son and successor,

Sir Henry Curwen, of Workington, M.P.
for Cumberland in the 18th of J \ M ES I. This
gentleman espoused first, Catherine, daugh-
ter and co-heir of Sir John Dalston, and had
Vwo sons, Patrick, his heir, and Thomas.
He m. secondly, Miss Margaret Wharton,


and had a third son, Eldred. He d. in the
21st of James I., and was s. by his eldest

Sir Patrick Curwen, of Workington,
M.P. for Cumberland, who was created a
baronet in 1626, but dying issueless, in
1664, the title became extinct, while the es-
tates devolved upon his brother,

Thomas Curwen, esq. of Workington, at
whose decease, unmarried, 25th Charles
II. the estates passed to his half brother,

Eldred Curwen, esq. of Workington,
who died the next year, and was s. by his

Henry Curwen, esq. of Workington.
This gentleman dying without issue, Ins
branch of the family expired, when the
estates and representation reverted to his
cousin, (refer to descendants of Sir Henry
Curwen by his second wife, Jane Crosby,)

Eldred Curwen, esq. who thus became
" of Workington." Mr. Curwen served the
office of sheriff for Cumberland in the 3rd of
George II., and represented Cockermouth
in parliament. He died in the 18th of the
same reign, and was s. by his son,

Henry Curwen, esq. of Workington.
This gentleman who was returned to parlia-
ment by the city of Carlisle, in 1762, stood
for the county of Cumberland at the general
election in 1768, and after an unprecedented
contest was placed at the head* of the poll,
by a considerable majority. Mr. Curwen
espoused the daughter of William Gale, esq.
of Whitehaven, and had an only daughter
and heiress,

Isabella Curwen, who m. John Chris-
tian, esq. of Unerigg Hall, and con-
veying to him the lands of the Cur-
wens, he assumed, in 1790, their
surname and arms, and thus became

John Christian-Curwen, esq. of Work-
ington. Mr. Christian had been married
previously to Miss Taubman, of the Isle of
Man, who left at her decease an only son,
John Christian, esq. of Unerigg Hall, one

cember, 1828. Mr. Curwen acquired dis-

This family, styled by Camden in his
Brittania " the honorable and ancient house
of Tyrwhitts. knts.," has been seated for
several centuries in the north of England.
The first person of the name of whom we
have any certain account is a Sir Herculus,
who is said (on the authority of the Vincent
and Harleian MSS.)to have been knighted
and settled in Northumberland 2nd William
I. Himself, or his son, bearing the same
name, married a daughter of Sir Thomas
Scargill, knt. and was living A.D. 1109, 10th
Henry I. This Sir Hercules is stated to
have thus acquired the surname of Tyr-
whitt. Severely wounded in defending a
bridge, single handed, against numerous as-
sailants, at the moment he had succeeded
in forcing them to retire, he fell exhausted
amongst the flags and rushes of an adjoining
swamp, while the attention of his party, who
in the interim had rallied, was fortunately
directed to the spot where he lay by a flock
of lapwings (or as called in some counties
tyrwhitt) screaming and hovering above, as
is customary with those birds when disturbed
in the vicinity of their nests. Camden, how-
ever, in his Remains derives the name from
the place so called. The son of Sir Her-

Sir Robert Tyrwhitt, was Lord of Tyr-
whitt and Assancke, in Northumberland.
He wedded a daughter of Sir John Wither-
ington, and from this marriage descended,
through a line of progenitors who allied
with the Umfravilles, Lowthers, Harbottles,
Ogles, Vauxes, of Gillesland, Nevilles, &c.
Robert Tyrwhitt, grandson of Sir Oliver,
who was grandson of Sir Hercules. This
gentleman, who is described (Harl. MSS.
810) as " Robertus Tyrwhit arm de Ketilby,
com. Line, ac Tyrwhitt com. Northumbria,"
is mentioned in several of the MSS. some-
times as of Tyrwhitt and at others as of
Ketilbv. He m. Anne, daughter of William
