Residence, Wootton Hall, Henley-in Arden. The family of Tichborne, which was of great importance in Hampshire before the Conquest, derives its name from the river Itchen, at the head of which it had estates ; hence it was called De Itchenborne, since corrupted into Tichborne. Sir John de Tichborne, Knt., Sheriff of Southampton, on hearing of the death of Queen Elizabeth, immediately repaired to Winchester, and there proclaimed King James VI. (of Scotland) as King of England. In 1621 he was created a baronet, the honor of knight- hood having been previously conferred upon three of his sons, while his fourth son, Henry, was subsequently knighted. Sir Henry, the 3rd baronet, hazarded his life in defence of Charles I. in several enterprises, and his estates were sequestered by the Parliamentarians. After the Restoration he was successively Lieut, of the New Forest and Lieut, of Ordnance. The gth baronet assumed the additional surname of Doughty. In 1869 the title and estates of the i2th baronet were claimed by a person who asserted himself to be Roger, eldest son of Sir James, loth baronet. The family, believing that Roger had been lost at sea, refused to acknowledge the claimant, who thereupon became plaintiff in the celebrated cause of Tichborne . Lushin^ton. After a trial, in i872 ; which lasted several months, the claimant elected to be nonsuited, and the presiding judge committed him to prison for perjury. For this offence he was indicted : and at the memorable trial at bar, which lasted from May 1873 till Feb. 1874, he was found to be Arthur Orton, and not Roger Tichborne, and sentenced to fourteen years' penal servitude.
