John (Sir). The judge died in 1409, and was interred in Wester Little Markham Church, Notts. His son by his wife.

Sir John Markham, knt. an eminent lawyer,** appointed lord chief justice of the King's Bench, S Henry VI. and his patents renewed on the of Edward IV. Of this learned and eminent the following details are given by Puller:

"John Markham was born at Markham, is N* tinghaxnshire, descended of an ancient and up family. He employed his youth in the studying • the municipal law of this realm, wherein he attune in such eminency, that King Edward IV. knigtnx him, and made him lord chief justice of the Kia: Bench, in the place of Sir John Fortescue, that tearae and upright judge, who fled away with King Hi« VI. Yet Fortescue was not missed, because Msrkhsa weeded him; for though these two judges did sevelly lean to the sides of Lancaster and York, yet th sat upright in matters of judicature. 1 We will instance and insist on one memorable c of our judge, which, though single in itself, was mil in the concern in gB thereof. * King Edward IV. having married into the family the Woodvills (gentlemen of more antiquity than :alth, snd of higher spirits than fortunes) thought fit for his own honour to bestow honour on them: t be could not Bo easily provide them of wealth as lea. For honour he could derive from himself, like bt from a candle, without any diminishing of his n lustre; whereas wealth flowing from bim, as iter from a fountain, made the spring the shallower, lerefore be resolved to cut down some prime sub■ts, and to engraft the queen's kindred into these ates, which otherwise like suckers must feed on t stock of his own exchequer.

"There was at this time, one Sir Thomas Cook, late rd mayor of London and knight of the Bath, one to had well lick'd his fingers under Queen M Arcaret, hose wardroper he was, and customer of Hampton; man of great estate. It was agreed that he should

accused of high treason, and a commission of oyer id terminer granted forth to the Lord Mayor, the uke of Clarence, the Earl of Warwick, the Lord i>erst Sir John Mark ham, Sir John Fogg, to try m in Gaud-Hall: and the king by private instructs totbe judge appeared so farre.that Cook, though - »u not, must be found guilty, and if the law ere too short, the judge must stretch it to the pur>"■- The fault laid to bis charge was, for lending wjsto Queen Margaret, wife to King Henry VI.; •■ proof was the confession of one Hawkins, who mg rack'd in the Tower, had confessed so much. «■ councel for the king hanging as much weight on e Mnallest wire, as it would hold, aggravated each irticular, and by their rhetoricall flashes blew the olt op to a great height. Sir Thomas Cook pleaded r himself, that Hawkins indeed upon a season came

him, and requested him to lend one thousand Ati« upon good security. But he desired first to i»o« for whom the money should be: and underanding it was for Quart Margaret, denied to lend >y turner, though at last the said Hawkins deOM so low, as to require but one hundred pounds, >d departed without any penny lent to him. "Judge Markham, in a grave speech, did recapitut*. «elect, and collate the material points on either >, "hewing that the proof reached not the charge

■ifih treason, and misprision of treason was the Lfibest it oould amount to ; and intimated to the jury, 't* tender in matter of life, and discharge good 'BKvnces. The jury being wise men (whose apprera,WM could make up a whole sentence of every •d of the judge) saw it behoved them to draw up ■*•*» into as narrow a compass as might be, lest it **»* their own case; for they lived in a troublesome "•ris\ wherein the cards were so shuffled, that two ilpwere turn'd up trump at once, which amazed *a how to play their games. Whereupon they acwtt*o the prisoner of high treason, and found him ^rj M the judge directed. Yet it cost Sir Thomas ■*»*. before he could get his liberty, eight hundred **ad* to the queen, and eight thousand pounds to "king: R mm in that age more sounding like the J**"** of a prince, than the fine of a subject. Be*». the Lord Rivers (the queen's father) had, during ■ "Bprtsouinent, despoiled his houses, one in the ^Maother in the country, of plate and furniture, which he never received a penny recompence.

*G«d righted him of the wrongs men did him by *■*■« the remnant of his estate to him, and his r*«*uT, which still flourish at Giddy Hall.

"As for Sir John Markham, the king's displeasure fell so heavy on him, that he was outed of his place, and Sir Thomas Billing put in his room, though the one lost that office with more honour than the other got it; and gloried in this, that though the king could make him no judge, he could not make him no upright judge. He lived privately the rest of his days, having (besides the estate got by his practice) fair lands by Margaret, his wife, daughter and co-heir of Sir John Leke,of Gotham, in Nottinghamshire, whose mother, Joan, was daughter and heir of Sir John Talbot, of Swannington, in Leicestershire."
