CHAPTER IV.

ADDITIONAL ENGLISH DATA.

THE following data lately collected is inserted, as it
contains some early English genealogy of our
family as far back as the year 1070. To be strictly
reliable, however, this data should be confirmed by
wills or other record evidence :

king's thane, and settled at Ripon, in Yorkshire, the
chief magistrate of which town was called the Wake-
man, but whether the family took its name from the
office or the office from the individual, is uncertain.
The great-grandson of the first John was

that reign; he had issue a daughter, Celina, who gave
lands in All Saints, Oxon, to the Priory of Stodley.
