Edward [iv] to the steward of the honour and lordship of 3 Oct. Tykhull and the "feodor and bailly " of the liberties and franchises of the same, notifying that Wm. and John Fitz

Despenser, 2 of John de Ros. We find from this seal Sir Philip used only the arms of the Goushills-barry of six or and azure a canton ermine. He had lands in divers places in Holderness, see Poulson's H. i., 370, but at p. 308 Goxhill in Holderness is confused with the Lincolnshire one.

This deed, though referring to Shelford, Notts, is here given on account of the rare impression of the fine seal of Sir Adam de Everingham, the head of the Yorkshire baronial house. He preferred, however, to style himself of Laxton (Notts); this was done to distinguish himself from his aged cousin, Sir Adam de Everingham of Rockley. He

himself, in 1386, had been a deponent for Scrope, stating that he was 79, and had borne arms 60 years. He died 8 Feb. 1388, and his estates passed to two granddaughters, Joan, wife of Sir William Elys, knt. of the shire, and Katherine, wife of John Etton, but he had two surviving sons, Sir Reginald and George, and several daughters, one Lady Beaumont. The lion on the shield does not appear to be vair as it ought to have been, though a most curious heraldic anomaly, but the stag's neck appears to be vair in the seal. The seal of Sir Adam's father shows the lion distinctly vair, but the helm has only the fan-shaped crest then in fashion.

William have done their homages for the lands which they hold by knight service of the honour of Tykhull.
