Empson, Sir Richard
b. , Towcester, Northamptonshire, Eng.
d. Aug. 17, 1510, London
Empson also spelled EMSON, English lawyer and minister of King Henry VII, remembered, with Edmund Dudley, for his unpopular administration of the crown revenues.
Empson studied law in the Middle Temple and from 1475 held posts in Northamptonshire and then in Lancaster. From March 1486 Henry VII began to reward him with grants of stewardships and wardships. In 1491 Empson, one of the members of Parliament for Northamptonshire, was chosen speaker of the House of Commons. From 1494 Empson was sometimes styled " king's councillor " and, after becoming chancellor of the duchy of Lancaster in 1504, was knighted; Henry VII then joined him and Edmund Dudley by act of Parliament to the feoffees responsible for carrying out his will. From that time these men were closely associated in carrying out the king's legal and financial policy, which made them so unpopular. The death of Henry VII left them without a protector, and they were arrested in April 1509, on Henry VIII's accession. Empson was sent to Northampton, where he was tried on a charge of constructive treason and convicted. He was brought back to London and executed.

From the IGI, (1539 - 1663 and 1673 - 1834), there are no Brown baptisms at Kingsbury between 1697 and 1726 although the registers for this period are good. Browns are well represented in the period 1642 - 1827 over all.
The hearth tax returns 1671 a William Browne occupied a cottage at Hurley Common owned by George Allsop of Tamworth it was empty in 1670 and the returns of 1673 and 1674 indicate only that the ownership was that of Allsop.

Great Dalby (Population 376)
Three miles south of Melton Mowbray on the B6047, this farming village was once a 1,375 acre estate. The last landlord was Sir Francis Burdett and the estate was sold in July 1921. St. Swithuns Church dates from the 14th century, but due to the collapse of its steeple much of it was rebuilt in 1658. The Methodist Church was built in 1846 and a schoolroom was added in 1890. The primary school dates back to 1876 but has been added to since. A village hall was built in 1937. The local pub, " The Royal Oak " , has recently been re-thatched. Great Dalby has grown over the years and now supports its own cricket and badminton clubs

I went to find my brother Henry who was very private in London, after having had the misfortune to kill a Sussex gentleman, his neighbour, in a duel and tho' wounded himself yet was so severely prosecuted that he must leave England. I moved my Lord Arlington [the Principal Secretary of State] privately, to get His Majesty's leave, that my brother might go over with me into Holland and I would undertake to place him where he should give his Lordship constant accounts of what passed in those parts worthy of his knowledge, that by his great diligence and industry should merit his Master's Pardon, if not his grace and favour Which being granted to me, I carried my brother, where I placed him very well for His Majesty's service, where he so factually performed that he did not only get His Majesty's Pardon under the Great Seal but did His Majesty such further service that he was rewarded for it.

Ilam Hall & Ilam

A model village one mile from Thorpe. The Gothic cross in the centre of the village was erected in memory of Mrs. Watts-Russell, who formerly lived at Ilam Hall which was presented to the National Trust in 1934 as a Youth Hostel by Sir Robert McDougall The Hall is still an imposing and stately structure though a substantial part of it was demolished when it became a youth hostel. The Church, which stands in the grounds of the Hall, is of Norman origin, but like the Hall was rebuilt during the 19th century Some Norman parts of it remain, and it contains a highly elaborate monument by Chantrey depicting the death-bed scene of David Pike Watts, surrounded by his only daughter and her children. Other memorials include the altar tomb of Robert Meverell (d. 1625) of Throwley Hall (the ruins of which are nearby), whose daughter married Thomas, Lord Cromwell. In the churchyard are the remains of pre Norman shafts and crosses. Also in the grounds of Ilam Hall is the ancient shrine of St. Bertram who is reputed to have lived as a hermit in these parts in Anglo-Saxon times and to have converted the district to Christianity.

Commemorative Information
Cemetery: ROYE NEW BRITISH CEMETERY, Somme, France
Grave Reference/
Panel Number: II. D. 4.

Location: Roye is a commune in the Department of the Somme 40 kilometres south-east of Amiens. From Peronne take the N17 to Roye. On arriving in Roye stay on the N17 and at the second roundabout take the D934 towards Noyon. Roye New British Cemetery will be found about 230 metres on the right along this road.

Historical Information: Roye was in German hands from the 30th August, 1914, until the French retook it on the 17th March, 1917. On the 26th March, 1918, the Germans recaptured it; but on the following 26th August they evacuated the town, which was entered on the 27th by the French First Army. It was very severely damaged. Roye Old British Cemetery was 1.6 kilometres south of the town. It was made in March, 1918, by the 53rd Casualty Clearing Station; and there was little time to mark the graves before the town was captured by the Germans, who extended this cemetery for the burial of their own dead. In 1920 the British graves were removed to Roye New British Cemetery. Roye New British Cemetery made after the Armistice, by the concentration of graves, almost all of 1918, from the battlefields and from other burial grounds. There are now over 600, 1914-18 and nearly 45, 1939-45 war casualties commemorated in this site. Of these, a quarter from the 1914-18 War are unidentified and special memorials are erected to 12 soldiers from the United Kingdom and one from South Africa, known or believed to be buried among them. Other special memorials record the names of 109 United Kingdom soldiers, seven South African and one Canadian, buried in Marchelepot British Cemetery and in three German cemeteries, whose graves could not be found. The New British Cemetery covers an area of 1,578 square metres and is enclosed by a low stone rubble wall. The following (all but one in the Department of the Somme) were among the burials grounds from which graves were removed to the New British Cemetery:- CRESSY CHURCHYARD FRENCH EXTENSION, where 36 United Kingdom soldiers were reburied by the French authorities after the Armistice.

Commemorative Information
Cemetery: ETAPLES MILITARY CEMETERY, Pas de Calais, France
Grave Reference/ Panel Number: XXV. R. 6A.

Location: Etaples is a town about 27 kilometres south of Boulogne. The Military Cemetery is to the north of the town, on the west side of the road to Boulogne.

Historical Information: During the 1914-18 war, the neighbourhood of the Cemetery became the scene of immense concentrations of British reinforcement camps and of British hospitals. It was remote from attack, except from aircraft, and it was accessible by railway from either the northern or the southern battlefields. In 1917, 100,000 troops were camped among the sand dunes, and the hospitals (which included eleven General, one Stationary and four Red Cross Hospitals and a Convalescent Depot) could deal with 22,000 wounded or sick. In September 1919, ten months after the Armistice, three hospitals and the Q.M.A.A.C. Convalescent Depot remained. The earliest burial in the Cemetery dates from May 1915. There are now nearly 11,000, 1914-18 war casualties commemorated in this site and over 100 from the 1939-45 War. The cemetery covers an area of 59,049 square metres. The graves lie below three terraces, the midmost of which carries the War Stone and two pylons, and the highest is dominated by the Cross.

In the 1881 Census both Edward and Ann were working at Goadby Marwood Rectory
Ann's maiden name of Brutnell was that of her Mother in Law's mother (Mary Brutnell)
The Brutnell name is relatively uncommon and they are almost certainly related. A check of the 1851 Census for her fathers place of birth should fix the relationship.

Memorials to two of Edward's grandsons, Edward Bulstrode, who was buried at Upper Deal church in Kent in 1718, and his brother, Whitelocke Bulstrode (not to be confused with cousin Bulstrode Whitelocke), who was buried in the Hounslow Priory chapel in Middlesex in 1724, each record that their grandfather was Edward Bulstrode of Soley End, near Astley in Co. Warwick, also of the Inner Temple, London, Esquire, sometime Chief Justice of North Wales. Soley End or Sole End, as it is now known, was a hamlet mentioned in the Doomsday Book, but is now represented only by the ancient Sole End Farm and a large house nearby, called Cow Lees.
********************************************************************** **** ********
According to Wood's " Atheniae Oxienses " , 1632-95, Edward Bulstrode in the time of the grand rebellion, siding with the Presbyterians, and taking the covenant, was, by the endeavours of his nephew Bulstrode Whitelocke, a leading man in the long parliament, and a favourite of Oliver, made one of the justices of North Wales. Bulstrode Whitelocke records that, on 21st January 1646, I attended this committee and procured them to name my uncle Mr. Edward Bulstrode, a reader in the Inner Temple, to be a judge in Wales for which he was a fit and learned person. Edward was so appointed on 15th June 1649, the year of Charles I's execution.
********************************************************************** **** ********
Edward was the author of: " A Golden Chain: or a Miscellany of Divers Sentences of the Sacred Scriptures, and of other Authors, collected and linked together for the Soul's Comfort " , 1657, and of " Reports of divers Resolutions and Judgments " , in three parts, 1657, 1658, 1659. Thomas Fuller's " History of the Worthies of England " , under " Writers on the Law " , records that:

Edward Bulstrode, Esq., (born in this county [Bucks.] bred in the studies of our municipal laws in the Inner Temple and his Highness's justice in North Wales) hath written a book of divers resolutions and judgments, with the reasons and causes thereof given in the Court of the King's Bench in the reign of King James and King Charles, and is lately deceased.
In 1712, Edward was referred to as a very learned Lawyer as appears by his book of Reports, a Work of great esteem to this Day.

Bulstrode, Edward (I2251)


The trade and industry of north western Europe in the Middle Ages was based on wool. The best wool was produced in the Cistercian abbeys of Yorkshire and in the Cotswolds, in western England. By the 12th century, raw English and Welsh wool was being widely exported, mostly to Flanders. Flanders seems to have been a cloth making area since Roman times. In Bruges (the name means " landing place " ), Ghent, and Leper, the wool was turned into high-quality cloth. It was then resold in the markets of Europe and the Mediterranean. By the I5th century, Bruges was part of the Duchy of Burgundy. Its cloth trade was on the decline.

Once the English kings realised the high value of wool, they decided to make certain towns official centres for the sale of wool and other staple goods, such as hides, lead, and tin. The tax on goods like these became a major source of income. When overseas sales were concentrated in one town, the king could easily organise and collect the tax. In the 14th century, the MERCHANTS OF THE STAPLE " became an official company. Usually, only members of this company could legally sell wool to foreigners. The Staple was variously fixed at several towns: St. Omer, Antwerp, and from 1340 to 1353, Bruges. Political trouble in Flanders, plus the conquest of Calais in 1347, led to the main wool Staple being fixed in CALAIS from 1363 lost Calais in 1558. The Scottish Staple remained in Bruges from1359 to 1498.By taxing wool at its point of export, clamping down on the import of cloth, and taxing its export lightly, the Crown encouraged the growth of the native cloth industry. Rural labour was cheaper and less likely to be organised in guilds, so cloth making moved from the towns into the country areas. Eventually there were at least 14 Staple Towns in England most in East Anglia.

Nottingham, St. Nicholas
The Parish
St. Nicholas' Parish averages about 500 yards in length and 250 in breadth. It is bounded on the west by Brewhouse Yard, the castle wall, Standard Hill, the General infirmary and Park Row; and on the north by Chapel Bar, Angel Row and beastmarket Hill; whence its boundary, including the greater part of Friar Lane, passes in an irregular line behind the Friends' Meeting House and Independent Chapel, across Castle Gate to Greyfriargate, down which it passes to the Leen, which forms the southern limit of the parish.Its principal streets are Castle Gate, Houndsgate, Park Street, Rutland Street, St. James' Street, Mount Street and Park Row. It has its parish church, several chapels and other public buildings, one of which is Bromley House.

The Church
St. Nicholas' Church is a neat, brick edifice ornamented with stone, and like Saint Peter's, shaded by a number of trees. It occupies a pleasant situation on the south side of Castlegate, whence its large burial ground extends to Chesterfield Street and Rosemary Lane. The building was commenced in 1671, and finished in 1678, on the site of an ancient fabric which was destroyed in 1647. when a party of royalists took possession of it, and from the steeple so annoyed the parliamentarians in the castle, that they could not " play the ordnance without the woolsacks before them " , and the bullets from the church " played so thick into the outward castle yard, that they could not pass from one gate to another, nor relieve the guards without very great hazard " . The church, however, was soon set on fire, and the royalist obliged to fly from its falling ruins. The present edifice has a light and airy appearance, and has a tower with one bell, at the west end. It has a spacious nave and two side aisles. the southernmost of which was much enlarged by subscription in 1756; and a similar extension of the north aisle took place in 1733, when £500 was raised for the purpose. It has since been new paved and ornamented with a handsome pulpit and a reading desk, and also with a new gallery on the north side. The organ was erected in 1811. On each side of the communion table are elegant paintings representing the Good Samaritan and the Prodigal Son, and the walls are decorated with many neat monumental tablets, and four hatchments belonging to the families of Newdigate, Smith, Bromley and Cooper. The living is a Rectory, valued in the King's books at £2 1s 8d, now £216. It is, like Saint Peter's, nominally in the patronage of the crown, but virtually in the gift of the Lord Chancellor. The Rev. William Joseph Butler M.A. is the incumbent.

This Lordship has since been enclosed but by whom and at what time I have not been informed...............................CARTE.MS

(this must have been a form of recovery in order that Frances could dispose of her son?s inheritance in his name Samson being a minor)
