TYRWHITT, OF NANTYR.



Justiciamis Angliae," but of Sir William's
being invested with the chief-justiceship we
have no other authority. He to. the daugh-
ter and heiress of John Grovale, esq. of
Harp^well, in Lincolnshire, and had (with
a daughter, Cecilia, who wedded Sir William
Newport, knt. and became, after her hus-
band's death, abbess of Ipswich) a son and
successor,

Sir Robert Tyrwhitt, knt. of Ketilbjs
who was one of the judges of the court of
King's Bench, in the reigns of Henry IV.,
V., and VI. ; his patents, four in number,
are dated 8th Henry IV., 1st Henry V.,
1st Henry VI., and may be found in
Calendarium Patentium, Turri L&ndinensi.
He is named among the " Tireurs des Peti-
cions" to parliament either for England or
Gascony and Aquitaine, for every parliament
between 9th Henry IV. and 7th Henry VI.
That the boldness of the feudal chief, how-
ever, strongly predominated in the character
of this learned functionary over the meek-
ness of the Christian judge, appears too evi-
dent by the following curious extract from
Cotton's Records. " 13 Henry IV., Wil-
liam Lord Rosse, of Famlake, complayneth
against Robert Tirwhitt, one of the justices
of the King's Bench, for withholding from
him the manor of Molton Rosse, in Lin-
colnshire, and laying wait for the sayd Lord
Rosse with the number of 500 men. Sir
Robert Tirwhitt before the kynge confesseth
his fault and craveth pardon, and offeringe
to stand to by order of two lords of the
kindred of the sayd Lord Rosse as they
should choose, whereunto the kynge agreed,
and the sayd Lord Rosse chose the Arch-
bishop of Canterbury and the Lord Grey,
chamberlaine to the kynge, who made alonge
award leaving the right of common of pas-
ture in Wragby in com. Line, to the deter-
mination of Sir William Gascoigne, chief-
justice, and it was enjoigned to the said Sir
Robert Tirwhitt that at a day certaine he
shod repair at Molton Rosse 2 tunnes of
Gascoigne wyne, 2 fatt oxen, and 12 fatt
sheepes, and offer reparation. And that he
should bring together all knights, esquires,
and yeomen, that were of his own, and that
they shod all confess their fault and crave
pardon, and further offer to the sayd Lord
Rosse 500 markes in money, and that the
sayde Lorde Rosse should refuse the money,
graunt him pardon, and take his dinner
only." The whole of the proceedings in
this matter, from their commencement by
the petition of William Lord Roos to the
award of the arbitrators above mentioned,
are recorded at great length in the rolls of
parliament 13 Henry IV. The details are
very curious and throw much light on the
manners of that day. The award is an ob-
ject of particular interest to the philological
antiquarian, as being almost the earliest



specimen, on record, of English as a written
language.

This feud between the families of Rosse
(or Roos) and Tyrwhitt continued up to the
time of James I. who on the occasion of
several lives being lost on both sides in a
casual rencontre during a hunting party,
caused a gallows to be erected at Molton
Rosse, near Belvoir, declaring that he
would hang the first like offender on it.
This gallows is said to be renewed from
time to time, up to the present day, when-
ever it falls iuto decay.* Sir Robert had
issue,

William (Sir), his heir.
John, of Harpswell, who m. the daugh-
ter and heiress of Sir — Rolleston,
knt. and had four daughters, of
whom Elizabeth, espoused John
Whichcote, of Whichcote, in Shrop-
shire.
Katherine, m. to Sir John Griffith, knt.
Maud, to. to Sir William de Montresor.
The elder son,

Sir William Tyrwhitt, knt. of Ketilby,
shared in the glories of Agincourt,f and
received by royal grant, 8th Henry V. the
Bailiwick of three towns in France ; in this
grant he is styled " toutissimo dilecto militi
meo Willb Tyrwhit." Sir William, who
was likewise appointed in the 1st Henry
VI. Seneschal, of certain castles and parks
in the county of Lincoln, founded the hos-
pitals of Wranby and Glanford Brigg, in
that shire, and the Chauntry and Chapelry
of Higham, in Essex ; was sheriff for York-
shire, 14th Henry VI. and one of the
Knights of the Body to that monarch. He
was s. at his demise, 29th Henry VI. by
his son,

Adam Tyrwhitt, esq. of Ketilby, some-
times styled Sir Adam, knt. This gentle-
man wedded, first, a dau. of John, second
Lord Lumley, and secondly, a dau. of Sir
William Newport, knt. by Cecilia, daughter
of Sir William Tyrwhitt. His son and
successor,

Sir Robert Tyrwhitt, knt. of Ketilby,

VI. for all offences he might have com-
mitted, and died 36th Henry VI. possessed
of three manors in the county of York, and

second son of Brian Tyrwhitt, of TyTwhitt, and in
the- fourth degree from Sir Hercules, became Ex-
tinct, the great part of their possessions in the
counties of York and Lincoln devolving on the
Tyrwhitts of Ketilby. A William Tyrwhitt,
of this branch, afterwards Sir William, who mar-
ried a daughter of John Lord Lumley, was at
Agincourt, with three archers ; he was son of
Robert Tyrwhitt, of Beverley, who died 6th Jan-
uary, 1427, two years before his contemporary,
Sir Robert Tyrwhitt, of Ketilby. It appears too
that soon after the first Sir William Tyrwhite
described as " Primarius Justicianus Angliae,"
settled at Ketilby, that the lordship of Tyrwhitt,
in Northumberland, was usurped by a prior of the
order of Knights Hospitallers of St. John, of
Jerusalem ; it shortly after came into the posses-
sion of the Ogles, who were connected with the
Tyrwhitts.

of that period on the continent. In
1631, having the king's commission
for that purpose, he raised 1500 men
for the service of Gustavus Adolphus,
and in 1632, when upon the retire-
ment of the marquis of Hamilton
from the command of Gustavus'
English and Scottish forces, his suc-
cessor, the duke of Saxe Weimar,
had reformed the 6000 British into
two regiments, Lieutenant Colonel
Francis Tyrwhitt, was by Gustavus'
desire appointed to the command of
the first. In November, of the same
year, a few days before the battle of
Lutzen, he was taken prisoner by
the imperialists whilst on a recon-
noitering party with Gustavus, and
was thus debarred from sharing the
honours of that fatal day. He es-
caped after the action. In 1642 he
joined King Charles, at York, with
155 men, and in the same year was
appointed to a principal command in
the wars in Ireland, where he died
