12 S. X. FEB. 25, 1922.] NOTES AND QUERIES. 157 liis query. This could be much enlarged were a new edition published. Another Jhelpful book is ' Dictionary of Foreign Phrases and Classical Quotations,' by H. P. Jones (1913). R. E. THOMAS. The following two books will be found useful: 'A Hand-Book of Mottoes,' by . N. Elvin, M.A. (Bell and Daldy, 1860) ; ' Morals of Mottoes ' by Samuel B. James, M.A., Vicar of Northampton (Religious 'Tract Society, n.d., but about 1874). J. DE BERNIERE SMITH. 'LA SANTA PARENTELA ' (12 S. x. 107). There are many mutually destructive legends relating to St. Anne ; but according to John Eck (1483-1543), professor in the University of Ingoldstadt, her first marriage was to St. Joachim, by whom she became mother of Our Lady ; her second to Cleophas, by whom she became mother of Mary Cleophae (wife of Alphaeus and mother of the Apostles James the Less, Simon and Jude, and of Joseph the Just) ; and the third to Salomas, to whom she bore Mary Salomae (wife of Zebedee and mother of the Apostles John and James the Greater). Others identify Alphaeus and Cleophas ; I Hegesippus says that Clopas was a ' brother of St. Joseph. Myself, and probably other correspondents to ' N. & Q.,' would be obliged if GENERAL LAMBARDE would give us a fuller account of his miniature and of the two pictures of the Flemish school in the Cologne Museum, of which Baedeker's

  • Rhine ' gives no notice. Baedeker does,

however, cell attention to a triptych by the ' Master of the Holy Relationship.' The various Biblical dictionaries do not help much. Some of the legends relating to St. Anne give the names of her father and mother, and also of St. Joachim's father and mother, but these vary. Probably, however, the grandparents of Our Lord were included La Santa Parentela.' JOHN B. WAESrEWRIGHT. n DERIVATION OF CHINKWELL (12 S. x. 93). Probably this was Chingwell, like Ching- ford, the g being changed to k, forming a better-known word, like " Inkpen," which -was no doubt ' ' Ingpen. ' ' In Domesday Book there are mentioned some 30 " Chings " or " Cings," besides various " Ings." Most of the " Ings " and " Chings," &c., were near Roman roads, and probably tribes or families settled at these places in Roman times. A. M. C. Your correspondent, in suggesting that Chinkwell may be "the same as Chigwell," may have remembered that Chingford is within three or four miles of the latter. And whet about Chignall St. James and Chignall Smealy and Chignal Hall (the variation of spelling is Bartholomew's), six or seven miles north-west, of Chehruford ? My people have a "breeches Bible," with many entries of Chignells (who occasionally spelt themselves with a "w") who were born and married and buried in end ebout Colchester between three and two hundred years ago. They were Huguenots, and my old father in, ists that they came from Chuignolles, a little way south of Bray (but I half suspect he invented this while dili- gently studying the map round about Albert while the war was on !). These similarities may not help to solve the query about Chinkwell, or deserve further discussion in your columns ; but if any of your correspondents can tell me more about any of these names I shall be grateful if I may hear from them. (REV.) A. K. CHIGNELL. Charterhouse, Hull, E. Yorks. SAMUEL HABTLIB (12 S. x. 110). The latest and fullest account is found in Dr. TurnbulTs pamphlet ' Samuel Hartlib ' (Ox- ford, 1920). From this we learn that 1628 was probably the year of Hartlib's arrival in England. A letter dated Sept. 1 of that year is addressed to him at "a merchant neere Dukes place [Aldgate] in London " ; another dated Dec. 13 "at his lodginge in Christchurch lane." He was married at St. Dionis Backchurch on Jan. 20, 1629 (n.s.), and a letter dated May 1 (presumably 1629) is addressed to him " at Dalston neere Kingsland " (pp. 7, 8) : When he left this house is not certain, but it seems that he was settled in a house in Duke's Place, London, as early as June 18th, 1638. The date of his removal to " Charing Cross, over against Angel Court," is also uncertain, but he was already there on May 2nd, 1651. Thence be removed to a house in Axe Yard, Westminster, apparently in 1658, for a letter to Boyle of December 16th of that year mentions his new house, and subsequent letters bear the address " Axe-yard." Here he remained in all probability until his death in 1662 (p. 42). Hartlib died on Monday, March 10, and was buried at the church of St. Martin-in- the-Fields (p. 72). DAVID SALMON. Swansea. MB. LAURANCE M. WULCKO would find a good deal of information about Hartlib in Mr.
