Means the Succession of it has been continued
on to this very day.

When Baldwin the 4th. Lord Wake of that Name dyed, He left behind him two Sons: John the Father of Thomas Lord Wake and Margaret his Sister: and Hugh from whome we are now to derive the Continuance of our Family.

To this Hugh his Father gave for his Portion the Lordship of Blyseworth, in the County of Northampton: and both the Family and Estate have, eversince, been drawn down, in a continued Succession of the male Line, from that time, to Sr. William Wake now living; and enjoyed that very Estate, which the Lord Baldwin gave to his Son.

What became of this Hugh, or what he did, I cannot say: All I find of Him, besides what I have already observed, is, that he was with King Edward the 1st. in his second War. A‘! Regn: 34. As he was also with his Son, King Edward the 2d. in the 4th. Year of his Reign.

To this Hugh succeeded his eldest Sou Sr. 81'Thomas Wake. Besides the Mannor of Blyseworth, given to his Father, by Baldwyn Lord \Vake. I find this Sr. Thomas possess’d of some other parts of the 7Estate belonging to this Family, in Depynge, in the County of Lincoln: But how he came possess’d of Them I cannot say. From thenceforth I find but little to observe with reference to those who Succeeded in this Line. and therefore shall content

It was about the latter End of King Henry the sixth time, when these two Brothers Roger and William came especially to be taken notice of. The Elder of them Roger, was among those who stuck to King Richard the 3d. against Henry of Richmond afterwards King Henry the seventh. For this he was attainted by Act of Parliament and sentenc’d to forfeit his Honour and Estate, Yet this latter was again restored to Him, and so descended to his Family.

As for William, the younger Brother, he was first Servant to the famous John Duke of Bedford; and Surveyor to King Henry the sixth: And being made Knight at the holy Grave, was buried in the Church of Allhollows in the Town of Hertford.

which ought not by any means to be pass’d by.

8 Another Son and 2 Daughters.

How the Elder Branch of our Family, still continuing at Blisworth, their ancient Seat in the County of Northampton, descended from John the Eldest of the four Brothers, I shall in a distinct Pursuit of this Line, to the time

of Sr. William Wake now living, plainly shew, ‘

by and by.

From William the second Brother, tho I have not so good a proof of it, as to put it out of doubt, yet such I have, as makes me not at all question, but that we are descended from Him. Certain it is, that either from this William, or from his Uncle of the same Name, we are to derive our Pedegree. And how this descent also lies, shall be distinctly considered in what follows.

In the mean time, neither his own Worth nor

the Fame and Dignity of his Son, Sr. Isaac,

the great Ornament of our Family, in this last Age, will permit me to pass by Arthur, the fourth Brother of this descent, without taking some little Notice of Him.

Being design’d for a Scholar, and accordingly from the beginning, bred up to Learning: He was at a competent Age, sent to the University,
