256 NOTES AND QUERIES. [ 12 s.x. APRIL 1,1922. the last reference. The other is entitled ' The Water of Weary 's Well,' and was preserved in Buchan's collection. Copies could be sent if needed. H. UNIDENTIFIED PORTRAIT ON WOOD PANEL (12 S. x. 150). The " Elisabet D. C. Dyciss Biaba " painting is probably a portrait of an Italian lady of the later part of the- sixteenth century, and the wife or relative of the Count Biaba of the period. The noble family of Biaba appears to have flourished in Parma until the middle of the nineteenth century. There was a Count Biaba among the members of the suite of Marie Louise, second wife of Napoleon, when after the fall of the first French Empire she obtained, by treaty with the Allied Powers, the Duchies of Parma and Placentia in Italy. ANDREW DE TERNANT. 36, Somerleyton Road, Brixton, S.W. A GUNPOWDER PLOT IN 1615 (12 S. x. 208). Reference is made to a statement that under James I. certain " traitors were broken on the wheel, limb by limb." May I inquire whether this awful punish- ment (well known abroad) was ever really inflicted in England ? I do not seem to remember any record of it. SURREY. BRITISH SETTLERS IN AMERICA (12 S. ix. 462,517, 521; x. 57, 114,178, 198). Son Nathaniel Hughes in Philadelphia, mentioned in the will of Sarah Hughes of London, widow, 1805. (P.C.C., 23 Nelson.) James Frost of Boston in New England, had freehold at Chelmsford, Essex, men- tioned in ' Freeholders in Essex,' by T. Clark, 1775. Parker Quince of North Carolina, America, only son of Richard Quince, who was son of Jane Quince of Ramsagte, Isle of Thanet. Will of Jane Quince mentions son John, daughter Mary Baker, son Richard Quince, 1799. (C. Proc., 1758-1800, Goodwin v. Quince, 690.) William Longmore of Jamaica, son of brother William Longmore, deceased. Nephew George Longmore of Quebec in Canada, mentioned in the will of Alexander Longmore of Great Baddow, Essex, 1792. (P.C.C., 28 Fountain.) Daughter Grace Williams, now at South River in Maryland, mentioned in the will of John White, Citizen and Girdler of London. (P.C.C., 81 Auber.) Thomas Dickason the nephew, now in parts beyond the seas, mentioned in admon. of Robert Skinner of Whitechapel, April, 1744. (P.C.C.) Henry Walter, settler in South Carolina, mentioned in the will of John Walter of Woking, Surrey, Esq.; 1736. (P.C.C., 142 Derby.) Son Robert White (if living) in parts beyond the seas, mentioned in the will of Mary White of London, widow, 1731. (P.C.C.) GERALD FOTHERGILL. 11, Brussels Road, St. John's Hill, S.W. 11. KNAVES ACRE, LAMBETH (12 S. x. 190). Is not this a misdescription, or inaccurate identification, of Pedlar's Acre. There is such a considerable literature on this subject, and almost every work on London refers to it or the memorial window in the Parish Church, that a fuller account of it is superfluous. It was a bequest to this and other parishes. Probably mis- management or neglect of the consequent trust estate gave occasion to the " Knaves- Acre Association." The mis-titling may have been an intentional reflection. ALECK ABRAHAMS. DESCENDANTS OF RICHARD PENDERELL (12 S. x. 169). Alan Fea's book, 'The Flight of the King,' second edition, contains a long series of Penderel pedigrees. Also see ' The Boscobel Tracts,' by John Hughes, and Archceologia Cambrensis (3 S. v. 114, 299). I understand that the correct spelling of the name is " Penderel." It is so spelled in Blount's ' Boscobel,' of which the first edition appeared in 1660, the year of the Restoration. ALFRED SYDNEY LEWIS. Library, Constitutional Club, W.O. The report of the case Robinson v. Giffard in the Law Reports (first vol. of Chancery Reports of 1903, p. 865) contains some particulars of the Pendrell family. The case related to certain annuities granted by Charles II. to the Pendrells, who helped him to escape after the battle of Worcester. AGATHOCLEA. ' OTHELLO' (12 S. x. 189). The fol- lowing list of the passages omitted in the First Quarto is compiled from the critical apparatus in H. C. Hart's edition of the play (' Arden Shakespeare,' 1905). The numbering of the lines is that of the Globe edition.
