The following pages contain the little which is known concerning a family of no social importance, and will consequently only be interesting to those connected with it. For such they are written, and to such addressed, without any apology for their publication. Beyond this it is solely necessary for me to say, that I have great pleasure in expressing my thanks to J. Fred. Beevor, Esq., of Manchester, for the very valuable assistance he has courteously afforded me in my enquiries.
