And also that your appearance shall be the 14th day of October next coming, in the aforesaid year above written. “And the said Orator did appear at the said day appointed, and did bring with him such evidence; whereof one piece, bearing date from the 10th year of HENRY III., which was in the year of our Lord 1226, from one Hercules Malbie, the third son of Sir Simon Malbie, knt. which married the Lady Dame Beckwith Browse, one of the daughters of Sir William Browse, lord of Uglebarby, and certain lands in Pickering, that the said Hercules should change his name, or else his coat, and his posterity for ever; and so it was that the said Hercules changed his name from Malbie to Beckwith, and did hold his coat ; whereof I, the said Earl Marshal, Peter Mawlam, lord of de Luke, lord chamberlain to our sovereign lord King Edward III. and Henry, Lord Percy, Sir Robert Boynton, knt. and Sir William Acton, did see and allow of it in due proof, and the aforesaid coat to be his own, lineally descended; whereof we have set our hands and seals to the aforesaid teste, the day and year above written, in the presence of many.” This Nicholas Beckwith m. the daughter of Sir John Chaworth, knt. and was s. by his son, HAMox Beckwith, esq. who was seised of the lordship of Clint, bounding of the north side of Nid juxta Hampesthwait, and of Uglebarby, in Whitby-strand, certain lands in Pickering and Roxbie, with the manor of Beckwith and Beckwithshaw, 13th Edward III.

• This Sir William de Bruce appears to have inherited a considerable portion of the lands granted by WilLiam the Conqueror to his ancestor, Sir Robert de Bruce, for we find that his danghter was heiress of Ugglebarby and Roxby, both of which places are mentioned amongst the possessions originally granted to Sir Robert de Bruce. Amongst those possessions are also named lands in “Leverton,” or “Levinton,” which must also have formed

part of the inheritance of Sir William de Bruce which was conveyed by his daughter's marriage to Sir Hercules de Malbie, and is now possessed by the lineal descendant of Sir Hercules, the present Colonel BeckwitH. of Trimdon. This estate is held by a feudal tenure, viz. that the eldest son of the possessor should hold the king’s stirrup whenever his majesty may come into the North Riding of Yorkshire.
