[The Council has decided to reserve a small space in each Number for notices of Finds and other discoveries; and it is hoped that Members will assist in making this a record of all matters of archeological interest which from time to time may be brought to light in this large county.]
YORKSHIRE PECULIAR WILLS.
In response to a further memorial from the Society, presented to the President of the Probate Division, the Richmond registers from Somerset House, London, and the documents of the West Riding Peculiars from Wakefield, have been deposited in the District Probate Registry at York.
These are small and in poor condition, most of them being fragments only of the originals. They are marked as follows:A considerable portion of this register remains. Section I is marked 1474-1485; Section II, 1503; and Section III, 1529-1551 (?). One leaf is headed, Book of Wills in the time of William Knyg[ht], archdeacon of Richmond, proved by Mr. William Cleyton, vicar-general, from Dec. 6, 1529, to the end of . . . There are several other
A. Of this only a single leaf appears to have survived (1564). B. This is very imperfect. The wills in it appear to have been proved before the dean of the deanery of Boroughbridge (1564-1573).
C. Appears to be almost perfect. It is marked on the cover, 1544-1553, and contains an index, which includes references to wills proved down to 1564.
D. Also seems fairly perfect. It is described as containing wills proved at Richmond before Mr. Edmund Parkinson, LL.B., commissary, from the Annunciation of the B.V.M., 1573, to Jan. II, 1579.
F. A fragment (1576–1585). All the wills seem to have been proved before Percival Brodbent, clerk, dean of Boroughbridge.

"Extinct and Dormant Peerages of the Northern Counties of England," by J. W. Clay, F.S.A. It would doubtless be a very desirable thing if the attention of members could be systematically called in the Journal to all publications of historical and archæological interest as regards Yorkshire. Mr. Clay has done much for Yorkshire genealogy, but even his monumental work, Dugdale's Visitation, with Additions," may be of lesser value to the advanced student than the present volume. The pedigrees of some 88 families are given, and they include the counties of Durham, Northumberland, Cumberland, Westmorland, and Lancashire, as well as Yorkshire. But almost all are families which the Yorkshire genealogist has constant need to refer to, and it is good to have a last word on the subject. The Nevilles, the Lacys, the Fitzhughs, the Marmions, and the Dacres are only a few of the important Yorkshire families whose genealogy is here given. The scions of these were "summoned to Parliament" in very early times; but even comparatively recent creations are not omitted, and Mr. Clay does not begin with the peerage, but gives the antecedent genealogy. Thus Lord Wandesford's creation dates from 1707 only, and became extinct in 1784; but we have the family pedigree since 1345. The work is a most valuable one to the genealogist interested in the northern counties.
