NOTES AND QUERIES. [io s. xii. OCT. 23, 1000.

(10 S. xi. 207) and the Baltimore and " Old Mortality" Patersons (10 S. xi. 25). It is entitled ' Carlyle's First Love, Margaret Gordon, Lady Bannerman : an Account of her Life, Ancestry, and Homes ; her Family and Friends, 'and has 21 illustrations, includ- ing one in colour. The author is Mr. R. C. Archibald. It appears that Margaret Gor- don, who was born in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, in 1798, was a daughter of Alexander Gordon, whose home was the estate of Logie referred to in the well-known ballad ' O Logie o' Buchan.' Her mother was a daughter of Governor Walter Patter- son, who is shown to be nearly related to the Pattersons or Patersons of Baltimore. She married, 1824, Mr. (afterwards Sir) Alexander Bannerman, who was Governor of her native island 1851-4. She died at Blackheath, 24 Dec., 1878.

SIB JOHN HABINGTON : SIB HENBY HABBINGTON (10 S. vii. 510 ; viii. 70). Sir Henry Harrington of Bagworth and Elmesthorpe, co. Leicester, second son of Sir John Harington of Exton, Rutland, by Lucy, dau. of Sir William Sidney, was knighted in Christ Church, Dublin, 24 April, 1578, by his uncle, Sir Henry Sidney, K.G., Lord Deputy of Ireland, and four days later was appointed Seneschal of O'Byrne's Country, co. Wicklow, for which county he was M.P. in 1585. He obtained several grants of land from the Crown, among them (26 Nov., 1587) the estate of the dissolved monastery of Baltin- glas, co. Wicklow, which included the lands of Grange Con and Griffinstown. In 1591 he was sworn P.C. Ireland. He d. 24 Dec., 1612 (funeral entry), and was buried at Thornton, co. Leicester, 21 Jan.," 1612-13 (Par. Reg.). He m. 1st in 1577, Cecily, 2nd dau. and co-heir of Francis Agard of Grangegorman, co. Dublin, and Fawston, co. Stafford, M.P. for Kinsale 1559 and P.C. Ireland, and by her (who d. 8 Sept., 1584, and was buried in Christ Church, Dublin) had^two sons, James and John (M.I. Christ Church). James, the elder, was slain at the Blackwater 14 Aug., 1598, unmarried. John, the younger, admitted to the Middle Temple 16 Feb., 1597/8, m. (lie. Lond. 4 Jan., 1602/3), being then " Esqr.," Mary, dau. of William Offeley. He was knighted v.p. (but when ?), and was found to be heir to his father, aged 25, and married (Inq. p.m. at Naas, co. Kildare, 16 Jan., 1625/6). His age at the time of his father's death

must, however, have been at least 28. He is described as "of Elmesthorpe, co. Lester, Knt.," in the Visitation of Surrey (Harleian Soc. xliii. 208) ; and is errone- ously called " Sir James," his elder brother also erroneously " Sir John," in the Visita- tion of Rutland 1618-19 (Harleian Soc. iii. 39). ISTo issue is ascribed to him in either of these Visitations. He d. 22 Dec., 1614, without heirs (male) of his body (Inq. p.m. at Naas, above). Apparently he left two daughters : Anne, who d. unm. 15 Aug., 1623 (Misc. Gen. et Herald., Third Series, i. 17) ; and Sarah, who m. April, 1630, John Frescheville, subsequently created Baron Frescheville.

Sir Henry Harrington m. 2ndly (lie. Lond. 10 July, 1587) Ruth, dau. and heir of James Pilkington, Bishop of Durham, and by her, who remarried (lie. Lond. 5 Aug., 1614) Walter Hildesley, had three sons and seven daughters.

(1) William of Hertingfordbury, Herts, proved his father's will 16 Aug., 1613, succeeded to the Irish estates as heir male of his father on the death of his half-brother Sir John, and was knighted 14 Oct., 1615. He m. (lie. 5 Jan., 1615/6) Anne, dau. of Sir John Wood of Albyns, Essex, and left an only child Lucy, who m. John Dingley. He d. in England 10 March, 1626-7 (Inq. p.m. at Bray, co. Wicklow, 1 June, 1632), having previously disposed of his Irish property, the co. Kildare estate being sold to Sir Paul Davys, and the Baltinglas estate, subject to certain demises made by Sir Henry Harrington, to Sir James Carroll (Inq. p.m. at Wicklow, 28 Oct., 1618, and at " Brea " 18 Sept., 1638), who in 1621 demised it, for terms of 60 and 1,000 years respectively, to Sir Thomas Roper.

(2) Thomas, admitted to Gray's Inn 24 May, 1614, and apparently d.s.p.

(3) Henry, of Grange Con and Griffins- town, of which he was in possession at the breaking out of the Rebellion, 23 Oct., 1641 (Down Survey) ; made his will as " of Griffinstown," 5 March, 1667/8 (proved at Leighlin), leaving his wife Elizabeth, an only son Henry, and three daughters, all married. On the death of Henry Harrington of Grange Con s.p. in 1840, great-great-grandson of the last-mentioned Henry, this line became extinct.

The daughters of Sir Henry Harrington were : (1) Anne, buried at St. John's, Dublin, 10 Jan., 1639/40 (Par. Reg.); m. Sir Thomas Roper, who acquired the Baltinglas estate as mentioned above, and was created Viscount Baltinglas in 1627.
