Edward Bootle Wilbraham, Esq., by the name, style, and title of Baron Skelmers. dale, of Skelmersdale, in the county palatine of Lancaster',

January 22.-Whitehall, January 7.-The King has been pleased to give and grant unto Henry Courtney (a minor), second, but now eldest, surviving son of Thomas Courtney, of Colchester, in the county of Essex, Esq. His royal licence and authority, that he may (in compliance with an injunction contained in the last will and testament of Elizabeth Shillito, formerly Elizabeth Mayhew, late of Colchester aforesaid, widow, deceased), henceforth take, assume, and bear the surname of Mayhew only : also to command, &c.

January 25.- The King has been pleased to direct letters patent to be passed under the Great Seal, granting the dignity of a Baron of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, unto the Right Honourable Thomas Wallace, and the heirs male of his body lawfully begotten, by the name, style, and title of Baron Wallace of Knaresdale, in the county of Northumberland.

to select his title from that city. That he might have intended to take the title of “Darcy” is possible, since he is the represer tative of a younger branch of that ancient family ; but it would be folly to suppose that the circumstance of the Duke of Leeds being the coheir of the barony of Darcy, which was created by writ in the 28 Edw. I. 1299, could have prevented his being created Lord Darcy of Lambton Castle, or of any other place, since there are at least fifty precedents of two, three, or even four titles of the same name being in existence at the same moment ; for example, at the present time “ Delamere of Dunham Massy," and “Delamere of Vale Royal," “ Herbert of Chepstoro, Ragland, and Gower,” “ Herbert of Cherbury," " Herbert of Caerdiff," and “ Herbert of Shurland;" " Howard of Effingham," " Howard of Walden,“Howard of Morpeth," and " Howard of Charleton," &c.

His Lordship is, we believe, Lord of the Manor of Skelmersdale, in Lancashire.
