C. inquires, " Can any of your readers inform me whether the clown in the pantomimes or at the Circus during the early part of the reign of Geo. III. was named Buc Khorse ? or was Buckhorse a character in one of the plays acted about that time? The name occurs more than once in the Letters of Junius, and the following extract from that writer seems to imply that Buckhorse was the Grimaldi of that period, and well-known as a comic actor. It was asserted that Lord Hillsborough was appointed Secretary of State for the Colonies in 1768, to correct the blunders of Mr. Pitt's administration. "This," says Junius, "puts me in mind of the consulship which Caligula intended for his horse, and of a project which Buckhorse once entertained of obliging the learned world with a correct edition of the classics."
The Rev. H. Hasted, Rector of Horningsherth, in Suffolk, kindly writes to us in allusion to the question respecting the date of Bishop Bedell's institution to that rectory, pointed out in our Magazine for November 1850, p. 479, as follows :— '' I referred to the parish register, and I find it there stated in a list of rectors to have been in 1615 ; and that this is correct is proved by the register in his own nice handwriting, the first entry of which is in February 1615, and the last in May 1628. There is also in the church chest a deed with his signature and his seal, mentioned in Mr. Tymms's History of St. Mary's Church, Bury St. Edmund's, page 124, and engraved in the "Proceedings " of the Bury and West Suffolk Archaeological Institute."
Ancestors Of Queen Elizabeth.— Sir W. Hankford. The writer of the article under this head in our number for November 1849, desires to correct the assertion (p. 492), that the " monumental effigies in incised brass of himself (Sir W. H.) and Sir Richard, his grandson, still exist." This is not the case. In Gough's Sepulchral Monuments there is direct and particular evidence that in 1786 not a vestige of these brasses, effigies, or inscriptions remained. The statement that the effigies still exist was made on the authority of" Manning's List of Monumental Brasses remaining in England, 1846," and the inference to that effect in Lysons's Devon, vol. ii.
T. inquires whether the Arms of a family were ever considered to be ap
pendant as it were to the possession or Their Chief Manor, So that they passed therewith to a purchaser. He mentions two instances which seem to lead towards that conclusion. One of Jenkyn Smith, the great benefactor of the town of Bury St. Edmund's, the arms attributed to whom are those borne by the Bretts of Hepworth, whose manor of Brett in Hepworth he purchased. The other is that of the Druries, whose tau he thinks was derived from their purchasing the manor of Talmaches or jTaumaches in Hawsted, in Suffolk, formerly in the possession of the Beckenhams and Talmaches.
In the memoir of Sir W. W. Dixie, Bart, given in our Magazine for Oct. 1850, p. 434, several corrections are required. He was the 8th, not the 7th Baronet, was born on the 16th Oct. 1816, and was consequently in the 34M year of his age. He was the elder son of Sir WiIloug/tby-Wo\stan-Y)ixie, (his father was not named William) by Belle-.Kom, younger daughter of the Rev. Thomas Aduutl (not Allnutt), Rector of Croft, Leicestershire. He succeeded his father Oct. 23rd, 1827. He has left and had issue I/tree (not two) daughters; 1. AliciaFrances-Anna j S.Louisa-Julia-Mary; 3. limma-Georgiana. His only brother the Rev. Beaumont Dixie, M.A. of Emmanuel College, Cambridge, and Rector of Market Bosworth (born Nov. 6, 1817) having died unmarried Nov. 1, 1846, the title is inherited by his uncle Capt. Sir Alexander Dixie, R.N. now 9th Bart, who married in 1818 Rosamund-Mary, daughter of the Rev. Joseph Dixie Churchill, Rector of Cadeby, Leicestershire, by whom, who died in 1831, he has surviving issue three sons: 1. Alexander-BeaumontChurchill Dixie, M.D. who is married and has issue four daughters; 2. Richard Dixie, also married, and has issue one son; 3. Wolstan- Fleetwood- Dixie; and two daughters. Sir Alexander Dixie married Sndly Rebecca, daughter of the Rev. Mr. Barnjuin, but has no more issue.
