iish him from his brother, King Louis IX e bore these arms until 1277, when, having bought the claims of Mary of Antioch granddaughter of King Amaury II. o^ Jerusalem, he impaled the cross of Jerusalem with his own arms. His predecessors in Naples, the Norman princes, do not seem to have borne arms at least, I have never seen an armorial seal of theirs. Even if the\ had, Charles would have had no claim to these arms, as his possession of Naples and Sicily was based on force and the sanction of the Pope, and not on either inheritance or sale.

Charles's successor, Charles II., King of Naples, gave Anjou to his daughter Mar- garet on her marriage to Charles, Count of Valois, son of Philip III., in 1289. I think MR. BAYLEY is mistaken in saying that Anjou was erected into a Duchy in 1297, the year of Margaret's death. This did not take place until 1360, when Anjou was given to Louis, the son of King John. Louis, Duke of Anjou, bore, also as a member of the Boyal house of France, France ancient with a border gules. When, in 1382, he succeeded to the crown of Naples as heir of Joan I., Queen of Naples, an heiress of the elder branch of Anjou, he bore a tripartite shield, adding his new shield of Anjou to the two coats borne by Charles I. As he had borne the shield with the border while still only Duke of Anjou, and added the shield with the label upon becoming King of Naples, this latter coat was later taken to represent Naples.

Interesting studies on the awakening of the feeling for territorial arms are to be found in the Rev. E. E. Dorling's ' Leopards of England.' D. L. GALBREATH.

OLD IRISH MARCHING TUNES (11 S. x. 447). The inquiry at the above reference having been submitted by me to the editor of The Musical Herald, he has kindly replied as follows in the January issue" of that journal :

" OLD IRISH MARCHING TUNES. " I should like to ask if the music is on sale, or procurable, of the following old Irish marching tunes, which a correspondent of Notes and Queries enumerates in a communication referring to the very limited number of inspiriting airs for recruit- in ^~L The Girl I left behind Me,' ' The Peeler and. the Goat, * Maureen from Gibberland,'*

We '11 give them the Shillelagh,' ' The Plant that Grows in Paddy's Land,' 'Billy O'Rourke,'*

The Fox,' ' Modireen a rhu ra',' ' The Connaught


Man's Rambles,'* ' The Little Home under the Hill,'* ' The Top of Cork Road,'* ' The Rakes of Mallow,'* ' Garry Owen na Glory,'* ' The Young May Moon.' J. L. L.

" ANS. Eight of these tunes to which we have affixed an asterisk have been recently published in ' Irish Airs for the War Pipes,' by Capt. Orpen Palmer, P.O.W., 1st Leinster Regt. (London : G. Butler & Sons, 29, Haymarket, 2.9.), and the other six are in almost every Irish collection, except ' The Plant that Grows in Paddy's Land,' which we have not seen by that title ; but it may be ' The Dear Little Shamrock.' ' Garry Owen ' is the marching tune of the Royal Irish Regiment. ' Mardrin Ruadh ' (or ' Modheree a rua ') is the Irish title translated as ' The Red Fox,' which Moore manufactured (!) into ' Let Erin Remem- ber.' Unfortunately, Capt. Palmer's versions are not pure, but they sound well enough on the Irish war pipes. Probably ' We '11 give them the Shillelagh ' is ' The Sprig of Shilelagh,' which is well known."

ANDERTONS OF LOSTOCK AND HORWICH (US. xi. 21). As long ago as 1878 the Rev. T. E. Gibson found at Crosby Hall a list, in the writing of William Blundell of Crosby (1620-98), of "the workes of my uncle Bog. An[derton] which was sent me by his son C. Anderton A.D. 1647." Ten of the works ascribed by MR. SPARKE to Lawrence Anderton appear in this list, together with twelve others. Mr. Blundell also adds a note showing that Roger Anderton trans- Hted Bellarmin's ' Controversies.' See Local Gleanings relating to Lancashire and Cheshire,' November, 1878, No. 817, also Nos. 604, 613, and 618. It would appear that the list was compiled by the author himself, who was Roger Anderton of Birchley, a younger brother of James of Lostock, and died in 1640. MR. SPARKE writes confidently, and perhaps has evidence to meet this contemporary statement of authorship. R. S. B.

Mr. Gillow's latest biographical sketch of Fr. Lawrence Anderton, S.J., is to be found on pp. 421, 422 of the Catholic Record Society's vol. xvi. (1914).
