Winterbourn Herring) but it is evident that
they had been established there for two
generations at least before the marriage of
Robert Williams, with the co-heiress of

obtained the representation of the Her-
rings, anciently lords of that manor, and

* " The Sywards, at a very remote period, pos-
sessors of the Hamlet of Herringston, were a family
of great antiquity, and held lands in the county of
Dorset, before the conquest. In the l l 2th Ed-
wwid 111. Walter Harang, or Herring, en-
joyed the hamlet in right of his wife, Alice,
daughter and heir of John Syward, of Clenston."
Hutchins's History of Dorset.

" The ancient and knightly family of Herring,
or Harang, was of considerable note, and had pos-
sessions in this country." (Ibid.) They were
seated at Chaldon-Herring, as early as the reign
of King John. John Heryng, of Chaldon, and
Winterbourn Herring, the last male of the family,
died in the 34th Henry VI. when John Ue la
Lynde, son and heir of John, son of Isabella De

* " The family of De la Lynde," says Coker,
" were men of great note in these parts," of whom
Robert De la Lynde was living temp. Henry II.
They were seated at an early period at Hartley,
in the parish of Great Mentern, acquired in mar-
riage with the heiress o'f a family of that name,
where they continued until the co-heiress of Her-
ring conveyed to them, as stated, Clenston.

" Kings Stagge Bridge," (in the parish of East
Pulham, in the county of Dorset) " got that name
upon this occasion : King Henry III. having
disported himselfe in the forrest of Blackmore,
hee spared one beautifull and goodlie white harte,
which afterwards Sir De la Lynde, a neighbour-
ing gentleman of antient descent and especiall
note, with his companions pursuing killed at this
place ; but hee soone founde howe dangerous it
was to bee twitching a lion by the eares : for the
king tooke soe great indignation against him, that
hee not onlie punished them with imprisonment
and a grievous fine of money, but for this fact hee
taxed their lands ; the owners of which yearlie

ever after gave for their arms white hartes heads

called the forrest of Whiteharte." — Coker's Survey
