The“ pride of ancestry” will never be disregarded, but by those who find themselves uncntitled to its distinction. The honours of a noble parent wither on the brow of a degenerate son; but the glory of the ancestor is reflected, with increased lustre, if the descendant be himself great. — Sir Philip Broke, whose capture of the Shannon will ever be an object of admiration in the annals of the British Navy, enjoys at once the satisfaction of tracing his descent from an ancient and honourable family, and the still more grateful consciousness of having added to its famc--of having planted a laurel, in the shade of which his posterity may repose.

In composing the memoir of this distinguished officer, the writer has been favoured by references to Journals and Letters in the possession of Sir Philip Broke's relatives and friends. He is also proud to acknowledge the prompt and obhging assistance which he has derived from Sir George Nayler, of the College of Arms. Thus, whatever may be its literary merit, the Momoir evidently bears the first claim to notive--the golden impress of authenticity.

From a Pedigree, now in the possession of the family, it appears, that Sir Philip Bowes Vere Broke is descended from Willielmus de Doyto del Brooke, the son of Adam, Lord of Leighton, in Cheshire, who lived previously to the reign of King Hen. III. The antiquity of the family, and the origin of its patronymic, are thus curiously noticed in Sir Peter LEYCEster's History of Cheshire :

“ This ancient family is descended from the Brookes, of Leighton, iu Nantwich hundred, in Cheshire, of which family I find one Adam Dominas de Leighton, sub Henrico tertio, whose son was stiled William de la Brooke, of Leighton, (probably the William noticed by Camden, as master of Leighton, in 1249, being the 330 year of King Henry 111.) enet his son, Richard, stiled Ricardus de Doito, in an old deed in the 5th year of King Edward I. that is, of the Brook, for Doet, in French, is a Brook in England; and under the said maner-louse', in Leighton, a brook runneih, from whence their posterity assumed the sirzame of Del Brook. Thomas Brooli, of Leighton, geotleman, the last of that family, in thó direct line, died about 1652, very agedl, having issue four daughters: but hic sold away the reversion of his lands to the Lady Mary Cholmoudely, 6 Jacobi, 1608; which afterwards, came to Francis Cholmona dely, third son of Thomas Cholmondely, of Vale Royal, Esq. wlio now enjoyeth the same, 1066."*

I'rom Willielmus de Doyto del Brooke, mentioned above, descended Sir Richard Broke, of London, Kuight, Chief Baron of the Eschequer, in the reign of King llenry VIII, the lineal ancestor of Sir Philip. About this period, or perhaps carlier, the family appears to have been seated at Nacton, in Suffolk.

Sir Philip Bowes Verc Broke, Bart. is the eldest son of the late Philip Bowes
