and co-heir, Grace, married 12 September, 1647, at Kirkby Wharfe, John Ellison, and secondly, William Wordsworth of Wraith House, baptized 7 May, 1615, buried 16 April, 1658, an ancestor of mine, and of the Poet Laureate William Wordsworth. Her third husband, Francis Morton, was married at Penistone 7 January, 1661-2, and she was living in 1697. Her sister Ann was the wife of Nathaniel Johnston, M.D., who died in 1705 (Dugdale's Visitation, 1665; Surtees Society, p. 6). Her sister Martha, wife of Samuel Savile of Mexborough (Dugdale's Visitation, p. 181), was buried 4 January, 1727-8. See Hunter's South Yorkshire, II., p. 270.

88 It is not a little extraordinary that no satisfactory pedigree of Brooke of Gateforth should be in print, considering the status of the families with which it intermarried, and the wealth of those who now represent it. That in Poulson's Holderness, I, p. 240, is simply ridiculous. We should all wish to know the origin of the family Greek-Christian name

"Callisthenes." Francis Hemsworth does not appear in the Visitation of 1612.

90 He was son of Sir John Savile of Howley, created Baron Savile, by Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Edward Carey, Knight, of Hunslet, and Catherine Knevett, and was buried at Thornhill, 16 February, 1623-4.
