A few of the above names, which are evidently of French origin, may have been imported with their owners after the wars of France. Two others are evidently soubriquets, bestowed probably from some circumstance in the owner's personal history. The word Jameson is spelt according to the Scottish pronunciation of the word, as the name of

We find

the neighbouring village of Winwick,' is spelt Qwinwick or Wynqwik; while Whitaker, appears as Qwyteakyr; a mode of spelling which is also Scottish in its character. the family of Torfote frequently occurring in Cheshire Inquisitions, in connexion with the sergeanty of the gaol at Frodsham. Another name, the name of Urlestoles or Hurlstools, may remind the reader of that Scottish incident recorded in Sir Walter Scott's Tales of a Grandfather, (vol. i. p. 200, second series,) when Jenny Geddes aimed her stool at the preacher's head, in the high Church of St. Giles. An antiquary will think the name of Berdisley, which is found in the list, worthy of remark from its connexion with Sir Peter Leycester who tells us, (History of Bucklow Hundred,) that Blanche, the fourth wife of Thomas Leycester, one of his ancestors, circ. 14th Henry VIII. was the rich widow of Oliver Berdisley of Warrington, whose name has occurred several times in the course of this Introduction. In the list of her ancient inhabitants, there is one name which every friend to Warrington will rejoice to find still remaining the name of Patten, -a name, which, as it is one of our oldest local names, is also one of our best. May that name be carried forward into the future for a still longer period than it has already existed in our annals,—and may it ever be, as now, amongst our names of highest honour!

[ocr errors]

1 We have a third spelling of this word in Baines's History of Lancashire, vol. i. p. 277, where we read of Robert le taillour de Wynequick; but each of these instances falls short of the waste of letters committed by Sir Thos. Strickland, temp. Henry VI. who, in spelling Sandwich, uses the word Sandwightith. History of Kendal.
