This ancient family is descended from that of D'Albini, Earls of Sussex and Barons Dutton, temp. Henry II. The present genealogy ascends to the reign of Edward IV. at which time they had large possessions in Caernarvonshire and Denbighshire, and were connected by marriage with some of the first families in the Principality. In the line of descent they stand thus: Hugh D'Albinl,Humphrey Dalbin, John Dalbin, William Dalben; this last was rector of Stan wick, in Northamptonshire, and nominated bishop of Rochester, but died before consecration. He was first cousin to David Doulben, or Dolben, rector of Hackney, and bishop of Bangor.
John Dolben, archbishop of York, prior to entering into holy orders, was a military officer, and distinguished himself upon active service during the civil wars, under the royal standard, particularly at the defence of York, where he was severely wounded. He was lord high-almoner and clerk of the closet to Charles II. and, during the prohibition of the Liturgy, was accustomed to read it in a house opposite All
Soul*' College, of which a memorial is preserved in a fine painting, by Sir Peter Lily, at Finedon, a ropy of which hangs in the hall of Christ Church, Oxford. He m. Mary, niece of Archbishop Sheldon, and was *. by his son,

Sir English died 27th September, 1837, when the Baronetcy became Extinct. ** This remarkable p*r sonage," says a recent writer in the Gentleman's Va gazine," was much attached to classical literature and antiquities, and like his father, was a zealous supporter of the Established Church, but a sincere friend to toleration. Previously to his final retirement into the country, he lingered with much affection about the haunts of his youthful studies and amusements, being alike remarkable for his venerable department and harmless eccentricity. He was a constant visitor at the commemoration dinners at Christcfaurch, and he frequently joined the juvenile ranks at West* minster School, whom he would accompany to servicr at the Abbey, saying he was die youngest aaaon* them, beginning to count afresh from the age of seventy. He had his cards printed in black letter type, saying that he was himself'1 old English," and that was the most appropriate style for him. He carried so many small volumes about with him in hi* numerous and capacious pockets, that he appeared like a walking library; and his memory, particular!! in classical quotations, was equally richly stereiAbout 1820, he visited Italy, taking with kin Mr. C Tytler, a Scotch artist, who afterwards published a large panoramic view of Edinburgh, and also several lithographic views in Italy, in which the figure of Sir English frequently occurs."
