The family of Baker was settled at Cranbrooke, in Kent, so early as the reign of Edward III., and from one of its younger branches descended Thomas BAker, of Rushington, whose daughter and heiress, Margaret, m. to John Selden, was mother of the learned John Selden. Thomas Baker, of Sisinghurst, Cranbrook, Kent, was father of Rich ARD BAKER, living temp. HeNRY VII., whose son, SIR John BA k ER, knt. of Sisinghurst, adopting the legal profession, attained considerable eminence, and when a young man was sent ambassador to Denmark. On his return he became Speaker of the House of Commons, and was soon after appointed attorneygeneral and sworn of the privy council, but gained no further preferment until 1545, when, having recommended himself to the king by his activity in forwarding a loan in London and other imposts, he was made chancellor of the Exchequer. H INR Y VIII. constituted him an assistant trustee for the minor successor, after whose accession his name is scarcely mentioned in history, except in one instance, which ought not to be forgotten : he was the only privy counsellor who steadfastly denied his assent to the last will of that prince, by which Mary and Elizabeth were excluded from inheriting the crown. He was succes

Sir Richard d. in 1558, and was interred at Sisinghurst, where he possessed a fine estate formerly belonging to the family of De Berham, and a noble mansion built by himself, Sisinghurst Castle, which remained for centuries with his descendants, but has since bowed down its battlements to the unfeeling taste of modern times. His eldest son and heir, S1 R Rich ARD BA k ER, knt. of Sisinghurst, entertained Queen Elizabeth in her progress into Kent July, 1573. He m. first, Catherine, daughter and heir of John Tirrell, youngest son of Sir Thomas Tirrell, knt. and had Joh N, his heir. Thomas (Sir), knt. of Whittingham, in Suffolk, m. and had issue.
