Alexander, and the district in which he is found is at any rate a neighbour land to the Welsh border. It is, perhaps, a somewhat curious coincidence that we should find a John, son of Richard Midleton, of Manchester, baptized at Rochdale in 1598.

Again, in the Lambeth Wills (Genealogist, vi., 1882) we find the will of a fourteenth century parish priest, Thomas Middleton, Rector of Multon, who might possibly have belonged to the line which took its name from Cecilia, heiress of Philip de Middleton, after her marriage with Ririd ap David ap Flaidd, chief of one of the fifteen noble tribes of North Wales. In Misc. Gen. et Her., Second Ser., ii. 250, we find it noted that Isabel, daughter of David o ap Jevan ap Ririd Middleton, married Owen ap Griffith, and was by him ancestress of the family of Mostyn-Owen, heirs of line of Owen of Woodhouse. This is possibly David, elder son of Robert, son of Ririd ap David and Cecilia de Middleton. In a list of the principal inhabitants of London, 1640, printed in the same volume of Misc. Gen. et Her., but not, so far as we can see, referred to by Mr. Pink, we find the following Middletons: p. 52, Broad Street Ward, William Middleton, a “Silkeman”; p. 69, Castle Baynard Ward, Edward Middleton; p. 109, Lime Street Ward, Richard Middleton, merchant. Of these we do not see any clue to the affiliation of Edward, of Castle Baynard Ward, on the stock, whose history Mr. Pink is tracing. William, the “silkeman,” of Broad Street Ward, cannot be identical with the goldsmith, but might possibly, though we doubt it, be the draper of the New River &jo, or both he and Richard, the merchant of Lime Street Ward, might be the Richard and William, sons of Robert Middleton, merchant and skinner, whose son Richard is stated by Mr. Pink, in his “Miscellaneous Notes,” p. 59, to have been “living in 1623, and then about twenty years of age.” It is doubtful, however, seeing that the William of that family was the ninth son of Robert, Richard being the fifth, whether he could well have been so established in business by 1640 as to be reckoned among the “able men” for the City contributions of that year towards the king's needs. The history of the latest surviving baronetcy in the Middleton family, that conferred upon Sir Hugh, of New River fame, is quite a striking chapter among those vicissitudes of families to which the late Sir Bernard Burke devoted some of his most interesting writing.

Boke off Recorde, or Register of Kirkbiekendall. “E: {{ R. S. Ferguson, LL.M. F.S.A. (Kendal, Wilson; Carlisle, Thurnam). WE have abridged the very long title-page which the Elizabethan compiler of this interesting old manuscript thought it well to frame. There are not many things in which we are more like the men of the earliest days of the printing-press and less like those of the latter part of the sixteenth and of the whole of the seventeenth century than in the way in which we make the titles of our books. The title of a volume issued when rinting was in its infancy, often consists of a single ine only; later authors delighted in making their titles a kind of table of contents. It is well that, with some divergency in arrangement, we have fallen back on the earlier practice. The volume before us seems carefully edited, but we are sorry to find, from Mr. Ferguson's preface, that a part of the text is made from a modernized transcript. The reasons for this are given in the preface, but we cannot regard them as other than unsatisfactory. It is impossible, without occupying far more space than we have at our command, to give an idea of the centents of this remarkable volume. It will be of great

interest to all who wish to realize what the municipal lise of our forefathers was like. It shows, as but few other documents do, how very free, from one point of view, the Kendal townsmen were, and how much shackled from others. They were spared the outside thraldom from which the indwellers of many of the continental towns suffered, while, on the other hand, they were fast bound by their own native authorities. We could not live under such restrictions now; but boroughs such as Kendal were excellent schools for our growing liberty.

Though Kendal can never have been a very populous place, the number of trades of which the town authorities took cognizance was very considerable. Among them were shearmen, whilters, cardmakers, armourers, and several others which we should hardly have expected to find there,

Some of our friends have an idea that the wish to restrict the numbers of places where strong drinks are sold is one of the moral improvements of our own century. The idea had occurred to the authorities of Kendal at least so early as the month of January, 1603. It is not easy to make out how many inns and alehouses were considered needful for the population. The list of them given on p. 75 contains the names of thirty-six proprietors, four of them being women, but it is certain from the dates given in the margin that the whole of these were not keeping open house at the same time. The editor tells his readers, in a note, that All Hallows Eve was here called “nutcrack night,” because it was on that day the custom to crack large quantities of nuts and in some way or other to tell fortunes by them. This piece of folk-lore was noticed long ago by Hone in the “Every Day Book.’

JonATHAN Bouchira.-Volckameria is the generic name of a plant better known as Clerodendron fragrams. It is a shrub native of Japan and China, with large ovate, toothed, sticky leaves, and heads of flowers at the ends of the branches. The flowers are about the size of a minia. ture or fairy rose, white flushed with pink, very double and very fragrant, on which account it is cultivated in hothouses. Volckameria is a commemorative name applied in honour of two German botanists. The better known of the two published a flora of Nuremberg in 1718, and died in 1744. The name Volckameria is not kept up, because it is now considered to be synonymous with Clerodendron.
