t. Thomas Harris, esq. of Boreatton, in Shropshire, roaster in Chancery, son of Roger Harris, draper, of Shrewsbury, and grandson of William Harris, yeoman, of Wheathill, in the parish of Condover, was created a Baronet in 1622: an elevation which rather shocked the feelings of the age, for, at its first institution the baronetcy was confined to men of descent, and Captain Simon Leeke impleaded Sir Thomas Harris in the court of Chivalry, as unworthy of the distinction. Nevertheless he transmitted the honour to his son and heir,
Ii. Sir Paul Harris, of Boreatton, who succeeded his father in 1620, and served the office of sheriff of Shropshire in 1637. At the breaking out of the civil war, he remained firm in his allegiance, and was an active commissioner of array. "He sent out warrants," says Gough, "requiring and commanding all roen, both householders with their sons and servants, and sojourners and others, within the hundred of Pimhill, that were between the age of sixteen and sixty, to appear, on a certain day, upon Myddle Hill. I was then about eight or nine years old, and went to see this great show; and there 1 saw a multitude of roen; and upon the highest bank of the hill I saw one Robert More standing, with a paper in his hand, and three or four soldiers' pikes stuck upright in the ground by him, and there he made proclamation, that if any person would serve the king as a soldier in the wars, he should have fourteen groats a week for his pay. Sir Paul was a person," adds our rustic historian, '* not well beloved by the ancient gentry of the county, for, being as they termed him, but a buck of the second head; yet being a baronet, and a proud, imperious person, he took place of those of ancient knight's degree: neither was he beloved by the common people." He died in 1644, and was s. by his son,
in. Sir Thomas Harris, of Boreatton, who also devoted himself to the royal cause, and compounded for his estate in the sum of £1542. In the year 1655
he was implicated in the general rising then concerted against the government of Cromwell: the seuun- of Shrewsbury was that branch of the enterprise fir which he undertook, but it was frustrated by Uh indiscretion of one of those engaged, Ralph Kynutta, of Maesbrook. « This gentleman," says Blatewiy, "publickly enlisted troopers on the 7th March, lfiii, and the forces were to have been mustered in Boreatton Park, on the Oth at night: however, on the morning of that day, the governor of ShrersbarF, Humphrey Muck worth, receiving intelligence of tfc design, instantly impressed the beet horses, in the town, marched to Boreatton, and seized the insurgents, with their ammunition, which consisted in pari if bullets made from tbe lead on the roof of that mission. It is difficult to say how Sir Thomas escaped with his life, but he survived to the Restoration." Sir Thomas nt. Mary, daughter of Thomas Hrttoc, esq. of Halston, in Shropshire, but dying s.f. was t by his brother,
■v. Sir Georgr Harris, who c*. issueless, and* s. by his brother,
