Lineage. This family, which derived its surname from “a fair lordship,” situated upon the river Eden, is of great antiquity in the north of England. One of its members espoused in the reign of King EDWARD I. the daughter and heiress of Hastings, and thereby acquiring the lands of Croglin, in Cumberland (which remained in the family until the demise of Philip, Duke of Wharton, in 1731), assumed her arms; ensigns which still continue with their descendant, the present Robert Wharton Myddleton, esq.

resisted an incursion of the Scots, put them to the rout, and made prisoners of the Earls of Cassilis and Glencairn, with several other personages of note. In two years afterwards he marched into Scotland with the Lord Dacre, and was at the taking of Dumfries; forwhich, and other eminent services, he was summoned to parliament as BARON WHARTON, 30th January, 1545. The lineal descendant and representative of this eminent nobleman, Philip WHARTON, sixth Lord and
second Marquis of Wharton, was created Duke OF WHARTON 20th January, 1718. Of this, the eccentric, witty, and gifted Lord Wharton, Walpole thus speaks, “ With attachment to no party, though with talents to govern any, this lively man changed the free air of Westminster for the escurial; the prospect of King George's Garter for the Pretender's; and, with indifference to all religion, the frolic lord, who had written the ballad on the Archbishop of Canterbury, died in the habit of a capuchin.
