When I look upon these two counties, it puts me in mind of the epigram in the poet :

Nec cum te possum vivere, nec sine te. " Neither with thee can I well,

Nor without thee can I dwell." For these two shires of Surrey and Sussex generally had distinct sheriffs until the reign of king Edward the Second, when they were united under one. Then again divided in the ninth of queen Elizabeth ; united in the thirteenth ; divided again in the twelfth of king Charles, and so remain at this day. But how long this condition will continue is to me unknown; seeing, neither conjunctim nor divisim, they seem very well satisfied.

The chief of this name was high sheriff of Sussex and Surrey, anno 1066, when William duke of Normandy invaded England, to whom king Harold wrote to assemble the posse comitatuum, to make effectual resistance against that foreigner. The original hereof, an honourable heir-loom (worth as much as the owners thereof would value it at) was lately in the possession of this family; a family wherein the eminency hath equalled the antiquity thereof, having been barons of England in the reign of king Henry the Third.

The last Sir John Ashburnham, of Ashburnham, married Elizabeth Beaumont, daughter of Sir Thomas Beaumont (afterwards by especial grace created Viscountess Crawmount in Scotland); and bare unto him two sons; John, of the bedchamber to king Charles the First and Second; and William,
