Two other children, Samuel and Peter, are also recorded elsewhere.


The house inhabited by the Saltonstalls at Huntwick is still standing. It appears to have been built about the middle of the 16th century, and though sadly altered, still retains many traces of its original beauty. In one of the rooms, which is panelled throughout in oak, is a handsome carved mantelpiece in the renaissance style, which three grotesque figures divide into two arched panels, with a frieze above. The house has been let as a farnihouse for upwards of a century, though it was formerly occasionally used by members of the Winn family, the present owners. Near the house is a large and handsome pigeon-cote of about the same date, and some of the farm buildings are also ancient.

1608. Ralfe Gargrave did chaunge his life the xvii of September. 1609. Edward Gargrave dyd chaunge his lyfe the xiij day of october. 1609. Mychell Gargrave did chaunge his lyfe the vij day of november. 1609. Richard the son of Thomes Beckwith did chaunge his life the vijth day of ffebruarie.

The above is written with a hand at the side as shewn. In 1643 a Thomas Beckwith left a "Pighell" producing an annual rent of 3s. 4d. for the poor of Wragby. The benefaction has long been lost, the last recorded payment being in 1712.

1610. Isabell the wyfe of Mychell Gargrave did chaunge her lyfe the xj daye of June.

Thus Michael and Isabel Gargrave died within about seven months of each other, having lived together, happily let us hope, for upwards of thirty years. Their marriage in 1578 is thus recorded:

"Mychell Gargrave and Isabell Roodhouse were maryed the xxviij of September."

1610. Anne the dowghter of Thomas Gargrave and Ursalie her mother was Bap: the thyrd day of Marche.

1612. Rosamunde the dowghter of Mr. Richard Salterstall was Bap: the xvi day of Aprill.

1612. Elizabeth the dowghter of Anthonie Gargrave was Bap: the xv daye december.

1612. Nan Beldame did chaunge her lyfe the vij day of november. 1612. Ralfe Cariare and Sybble Gargrave were maryed the xxi dayo of June.

1614. Mr. John Leprevicke Clerke did chaunge his lyfe ye xth day of december.

1616. John the sonne of Tho: Gargrave was Bap: the xxj daie of April.

1616. William Walker and Elyzabeth Gargrave were maryed the xxviijth daye of Julii.

1617. Robert the sonne of Rychard Saltonstall Esquire was Bap: the iij day of Julii.

In 1617 Mr. John Atkinson, who had a laudable habit of signing his name, which other early incumbents of Wragby lacked, signs himself adjoining the registry of burials thus "Johanne Atkinsono clerico."

1619. Gulielmus Ireland de Nostell Esquier Armiger sepultus erat in Ecclesia par Wragbiana primo die Martii postquam Londini ultimum spiritum exhalasset."

The names of godparents are not usually given, but in the following and some few other instances they are recorded. It will be observed that the Richard Saltonstall, Esquire, of 1617 is now, 1619, Sir Richard.

1619. Rosamundi (sic) filia Johannis Atkinson et Edithæ uxoris ejus baptizabatur tertio die Octobris cujus compater erat Thomas Beckwith Commatres autem Rosamundi Heaton Annaque Ffosterd.

1619. Henricus filius Ricardi Saltonstall militis et Gratiæ uxoris ejus Baptizabatur nono die Novembris cujus compatres erant Henricus Smith et Samuell Saltonstall milites, Commater autem erat Catherina Wainworth.

Who was this Samuel Saltonstall, miles? Not Sir Richard's father, for he died in 1612. Was he a son of the Lord Mayor?

1621. Christopherus filius Johannis Atkinsone et Edithæ uxoris ejus baptizab. decimo septimo die Maii cujus compatres erant

Christopherus Hutchinson vicarius de Felkirk et Thomas
Oxley Commater autem Da Nellson de Crofton.

The child died on June 21st of the same year.

3 For a pedigree of the Irelands, see Hunter's South Yorkshire.

1621. Henricus filius Richardi Thompson nuper defuncti in Settele in Parochia de Giglehwicke et Helenæ uxoris ejus in itinere in parochia parturientis baptizab: trigesimo die Julii.

1621. Gratia filia Richardi Saltonstall, militis et Gratiæ uxoris ejus bapt. 26 ffebe.

1622. Anna uxor Domi ffrancisci Ireland militis vitam hanc caducam in immortali mutavit quarto die Augusti.

1624. Johannes filius Domini Richardi Saltonstall militis et Gratia uxoris ejus baptizab: vicessimo octavo die Novembris.

1625. Maria filia Richardi Croft Baptizab. Maii primo 1625.

Thomas Parkinson de Ackworth et Janna Clarkeson de
Ryhil nuptias inibant eodem die viz maii primo anno 1625
Caroli regis Anno primo patre suo defuncto.

1625. Obitus sanctissimæ domina Gratiæ Saltonstall uxoris dmi Richardi Saltonstall militis vicessimo septimo die Junii.

This lady is elsewhere in the registers styled "piissima."

The Register for 1626 begins thus :

Anno dmi 1626 anno regni domi reg(is) Caroli primo Johanne Atkinsono curato.

1626. Elizabetha filia domi ffrancisci Ireland militis nata et baptizata erat tertio die Martii.

1630. The last entry in the book is Franciscus filius Roberti Owrom Baptiz: 10 Martii.

NOTE. Dr. Sykes suggests that the confused entry recorded on p. 313 of Vol. XII. of the Journal means that Blacke, a servant of Thomas Gargrave, was the putative father of Isabel Brathet's child.
