Camden, in his Britannia, says, “Barrington Hall, (heretofore) the seat of that eminent family of the Barringtons, who in the time of King Stephen were greatly enriched with the estate of the Lord Montfitchet: and in the memory of our fathers a match with the daughter and co-heir of Henry Pole, Lord Montacute, son and heir to Margaret, Countess of Salisbury, rendered them more illustrious, by an alliance with the royal blood.” Le Neve (Norroy king-of-arms) deduces the lineage of the Barringtons from BAR ENTONE, a Saxon, who had the custody of the forest of Hatfield-Regis, temp. William the Conqueror, and whose son, Ecstach its DE BAR EN to NA, servant to King HENRY I., obtained grants of land from that nonarch, with the custody of the forest.

This gentleman was M.P. in 1610, for the borough of Newport, and one of the parliamentary committee for Essex and the Isle of Wight; but when he observed the lengths to which the parliamentarians had determined to proceed, he declined to follow; although it is probable it was expected that he would go to the utmost extremity, as he was one of the members nominated to sit in the mock high court of justice, appointed to try his unhappy sovereign. Sir John, however, refused to attend any of its meetings, and peremptorily declined signing the warrant for King CHA Riles's execution. He lived in retirement after the Restoration. Sir John m.

Immediately after the Norman conquest, arose into power and importance, particularly in the midland counties, the great baronial family of Bassett, which gave a chief justice to England in the reign of HENRY 1. in the person of Ralph Basset; from whom sprung the Lords Basset, of Drayton, the Lords Basset, of Hedendon, &c. &c. About the middle of the twelfth century, the Bassets, of Cornwall, obtained the estate of Tehidy by marriage with the heiress of the great house of De Dunstanville, from which period they appear to have enjoyed considerable wealth and in. fluence until the civil wars. At that momentous cri
sis, there were three brothers of the Bassets, all emi
nently prominent in the royal cause,
Sir Francis Basset, the sheriff, was with the king at Lestwithiel, when Essex's army surrendered ; and his majesty, Sir Francis relates, in a letter to his wife, then said to him, “ l now leave, Mr. Sheriff, the county of Cornwall to your protection.” Owing, however, to the large sums of money disbursed in this unhappy struggle, the family became considerably reduced in circumstances; but its fortunes were at length retrieved by intermarriages with heiresses. The issue and heir of one of those, the heiress of Pendarves,
Joh N-PrNDArves Basset, esq. m. Anne, daughter of Sir Edmund Prideaux, bart. and dying in 1739, was s. by his son,

Willi AM BAst Arn, esq. of Kitley, descended from a very ancient Devonshire family, having during the war with France rendered essential service to government by conducting from Plymouth to Exeter a large number of l’rench prisoners confined in the arsenal of the former place, for the removal of whom no troops could be spared from the garrison, already insufficient for the defence of the place, was created a BARoS or by King Grorge III. The title was gazetted in 1779, but has never been adopted. Had it been assumed by the family, Edmund Pollexfen Bastard, esq. of Kitley, in Devon, late M.P. for that count v, would be the baronet. (See BUR ke's Commoners, vol. i. p. 17.)
1. Sin Thomas BATEMAN, a merchant of London, was created a BA Roxet in 1664, as Sir Thomas Bateman, of How Hall, Norfolk. In 1666 this gentleman and his two brothers, who all appear to have been engaged in commercial pursuits, sustained great loses by the dreadful fire of that year in London: many of their houses were burnt, and their property and papers destroyed. Sir Thomas's house in Coleman Street was so damaged that he left it and went to reside at Isleworth, and soon after at Chelsea, where he rented, in 1670, a house of Mr. Cheney, who married the Duke of Norfolk's daughter. He wedded the only daughter and heiress of Mr. Midletot, hich sheriff of the counties of Cambridge and Huntingdon, but dying s. p. the BARoxercy expired.
