Ada-Perpetua.

This gentleman filled for many years the most influential
civil offices in the colony of Honduras, and was appointed,
in 1817, one of the royal commissioners for holding the
high criminal courts there. He was advocate for the
crown on several important occasions, and enjoyed the
rank of major in the militia. Having succeeded to the
estates of his ancestors, upon the demise of his cousin,
Thomas Westby, esq. of Rawcliffe, in 1829, he re-
signed soon after into the hands of his majesty's secretary
of state for the Colonies the civil appointments he then
held of Clerk of the Supreme and Lower Courts, and
keeper of the records in Honduras.




Ufncage,



The family of Westbye, or Westbie,
now written Westby, is one of those
ancient catholic houses still numerous in
Lancashire, which, through good and bad
repute, adhered to the faith of their fore-
fathers.

The Westbys were originally from York-
shire, but had a settlement in Lancashire
prior to the conquest, and are of Saxon
descent.

In the general survey, the township and
lands of Westby are distinctly set forth, as
then existing in the hundred of Amounder-
ness, in the north western part of Lanca-
shire. All these lands were once held under
the great Saxon chief, Tosti, the brother of
Harold, afterwards by Roger de Poictou
the Norman, and are now in the possession
of J. Clifton, esq. of Lytham.

The Westbys have, at various periods,
held lands at Mowbreck, near Kirkham.
Bourn, in Poulton, Much Urswick, in
Furness, in Alston, Balderston Thorton,
Thornton Stanoe, and Great and Little Ec-
cleston, in the county of Lancaster, and at
Westby, mar Gisbourn, in Yorkshire, but
they have been deprived of the greater por-



tion of these broad and fertile domains, by
religious persecutions, and for their active
zeal in support of the ill fated house of Stcart.

In 1233,

Gilbert Westbye was sheriff of Lanca-
shire : from him descended

William Westbie, esq. of Westbie, in
the county of York, living temp. Henry
VII. who was father of

William Westbie, esq. of Westbie, who
in 1553, when a muster of soldiers was made
in the county palatine of Lancaster, and
when the hundred of Amounderness fur-
nished three hundred men to her majesty,
was appointed one of the commanders. He
m. a daughter of Regmaiden of Wideacre,
and was s. by his son,

John Westbye, of Westbye, who was
granted, in the 2nd of Elizabeth, a crest by
a curious patent, which sets forth at some
length, the origin of armorial bearings,
heralds and officers of arms, and states that
John Westbye had long been " in noble-
ness bearing arms." This gentleman seems
to have been a bold and stirring man, for
when Elizabeth found that the reforma-
tion had rather retrograded than advanced in



WESTBY, OF MOWBRECK AND RAWCLIFFE.



Lancashire, and that her commissioners, with
the bishop of the diocese at their head, made
but small progress in the work, her majesty,
in 1567, issued a royal reproof to the bishop
in her usual style of decision, reminding him
of his duty, and requiring his vigilant per-
formance inforcing a conformity to common
prayer, &c. It appears by his lordship's
reply, that the mandate of the haughty
queen, when applied to this John Westbye,
was treated with scorn and contempt, in-
stead of the submission and thanks with
which it had been received by many, and
his name was sent up to the council as one
not unlikely to promote resistance, and who
would willingly lose blood in those matters.
Nevertheless, a few years after, when the
nation's strength was called out for the
general welfare, this John appears to have
arrayed himself and furnished the queen
with his quota of light horse, coate plate, pyke ,
long bowes, shaffs of arrows, steel caps, and
other armour- (Subsequently to this period,
a further patent or certificate was granted by
the college of arms, temp. James II., setting
forth that " this family were gentlemen of
blood and coat armour, and linpally de-
scended from the principal male branch of
the ancient family of Westbye, of Westbye,
in Yorkshire, and that since their coming
into Lancashire, they had matched with
some of the chiefest families of the county,
and their pedigree and arms are registered
in the visitation of Yorkshire in 1584, and
three several visitations of Lancashire made
in 1613 and 1665.") This John Westby es-
poused Ellyn, daughter of Kirby, of Raw-
cliffe, in the county of Lancaster, and had
one son and two daughters, viz.
Thomas, his heir.

Mary, m. to Thomas Hesketh, son and
heir of Hugh Hesketh, esq. of the
Maynes.
Ellyn, m. to Robert Molyneux, esq.
of the Wood.
The only son and heir,

Thomas Westby, esq. styled in the pedi-
gree " of Mouldbury, or Mowbreck," alien-
ated in 1610, all the Westby lands in Much
Urswick within Furness, by granting leases
for 1000 years, on the compliance of most
eccentric observances and dues, which are
still paid, and at something like pepper corn
rents. He to. twice, first, Perpetua, daugh-
ter of Edward Norris, esq. of Speke, in
Lancashire, and secondly, Elizabeth, daugh-
ter of Thomas Preston, "esq. of Holkar. By
the first he had, with three daughters, five
sons, viz.

John, who to. in 1619, Dorothy, dau.
of Richard Brathway te, esq. of Burn-
side, in the county of Westmoreland,
but dying s. p. settled, by deed dated
10th July, 1662, the estates of Mow-

phew, Thomas, with remainder to his
half-brothers, George and Robert.

He d. about the year 1649, leav-

but the Yorkshire property
never having been diverted
by any deed from that pre-
scribed by lineal descent in
the heirs male, consequently
passed to the then existing
eldest male descendant of
George Westby, of Raw-
cliffe, eldest son of Thomas
Westby, of Mowbreck, by
his second marriage.
By his second wife, Elizabeth, daughter of
Thomas Preston, esq. of Holkar, lie had five
sons and a daughter,

branch of which we are about to
treat.

Elizabeth.
Thomas Westby, (the elder) of Mowbreck,
having purchased, temp. Charles I., Raw-
cliffe (now White) Hall, from the Kirby
family, settled that estate on his eldest son
by his second marriage,

George Westby, esq. of Rawcliffe, who
attained the rank of major in the army.
The family had taken, with the Kirbys and
others, too active a part in the misfortunes
of their unhappy sovereign not to feel the
pressure of his enemies, and their estates of
Rawcliffe were seized by the parliament,
and in September, 1653, were sold by the
commissioners, as being forfeited for trea-
son to the state. They were repurchased
by friends, but as the Westbys were catho-
lics and labouring under the then tyrannical
disabilities regarding the tenure of land, the
titles were taken in the name of Protestants,
and by repeated transfers thus secured. It
was not until many years after that Major
Westby was known to be the real owner of
these estates. He wedded, first, about the
year 1650, Margaret, daughter of Thomas
Hesketh, esq. of Mayne, in Lancashire, and
had one son,

John, his heir.
He m. secondly, a lady named Rosomond,
by whom he had issue,

Ireland, and hence sprang, it is pre-
sumed, a large and highly respectable
family, seated in the county of Tip-

Kjntage.




The family of Trye is of French extrac-
tion, deriving its name from a town in Nor-
mandy ; but it has been eminent in Glou-
cestershire for many generations. In the
13th and 14th centuries the Tryes ranked



among the highest orders of French nobility,
and filled the most important offices in
church and state. We find temp. Edward
II. Matthew de Try, marshal of France,
rendering homage to that monarch for lands
in Ponthien, and in the 3rd Henry IV.
Sir James de Try taken prisoner and brought
to England.
