[blocks in formation]

(a) This William was William Hieworth, bishop of Coventry and Lichfield, of whom hereafter.*

(b) Sir John Talbot, (though here only additioned Knight) was the Lord Talbot, and eight years after created earl of Shrewsbury, of whom before.†

(c) Richard Laken, the same family with Lacon, whose seat was at Willily in this county, augmented both in blood and estate by the matches with the heirs of, 1. Harley; 2. Peshal; 3. Passilew; 4. Blunt of Kinlet.

My hopes are according to my desires, that this ancient family is still extant in this county, though I suspect shrewdly

shattered in estate.

The commissioners of this shire were neither altogether idle, nor very industrious; having made but a short and slender return, only of 45 principal persons therein.
