390 NOTES AND QUERIES. [12S. X.MAY 20, 1922. JEARY. My mother was a Miss Emma Lucy Jeary, daughter of John Burroughs Jeary, who in turn was the son of Jeremiah Jeary, all of Castle Acre, Swaffham, Norfolk. It is an unusual name, although fairly frequent in the county. There is, or was until recently, a very old firm of printers in Norwich of the same name, and a Major Jary -I presume a variation of the name was a few years ago High Sheriff for the county. I again ran across the name recently, in the City, in connexion with a large limited company. I shall be much obliged if one of your Norfolk readers could throw some light upon the origin of the name. Is there any connexion between it and that of Geary ? C. GROTH. Jesus^College, Cambridge. Sm SAMUEL MORLAND : TABLET ON PUMP AT HAMMERSMITH. In 1684 Sir Samuel Morland constructed a pump outside his house at Hammersmith, a tablet on the wall recording the act in the following words : Sir Samuel Morland's well, the use of which he freely gives to all persons, hoping that none who shall come after him will adventure to incur God's displeasure by denying a cup of cold water (pro- vided at another's cost and not of their own) to either neighbour, stranger, passenger, or poor thirsty beggar. July 8th, 1685. Sir Samuel Morland's house and garden were on the eastern side of the creek where Stamford Brook entered the River Thames at Hammersmith. In 1 8 1 3 Faulkner records that " the pump has been removed but the stone tablet is preserved in the garden of the house." Can any reader tell jne where the stone tablet now is ? I cannot believe it has been destroyed. WILLIAM BULL. ALLINGHAM FAMILY. Hugh Allingham of Ballyshannon, Co. Donegal, named in a charter of March 23, 1613, and also men- tioned in 1621 in connexion with the inquisi- tion into the disposal of lands escheated from O'Donnell, was apparently the first of the family in Ireland. I should be glad of information regarding his ancestry. LAURANCE M. WULCKO. 142, Kinfauns Road, Goodmayes, Essex. WILLIAM SWAN. In a note on p. 175 of vol. xxxvii. (April, 1922), of The English Historical Review, Mr. W. T. Waugh draws attention to the letter-book of William Swan, an abbre viator of papal letters at the curia, who was often employed as agent by eminent Englishmen notably Archbishop Kemp in the early years of the reign of Henry VI. and says, "The book is preserved in MS. Cott., Cleop., c. iv., fos. 124-229 v<>." Is there anything to connect this William Swan with the Winchester scholar of 1406 ? The entry in Kirby's ' Winchester Scholars,' at p. 34, is : " Swan, William, Hull, Sch. N.C., LL.B., Fell. 1416-24; Beneficed." JOHN B. WAINE WRIGHT. BURIAL OF LORD ZOUCHE, 1625. The ' D.N.B.' states that Lord Zouche died in 1625, and that he was buried in Hackney Church. Lord Zouche owned the Bramshill Estate, in the parish of Eversley, Hants. The Eversley Parish Register distinctly records the burial of Lord Zouche at Eversley in August, 1625. Can any reader explain why the ' D.N.B.' makes' the above (erroneous) statement ? Does the article refer to another Lord Zouche ? J. HAUTENVILLE COPE. Pinchampstead Place, Berks. BREDON HILL. Could any reader tell me of any poems relating to Bredon Hill or its neighbourhood ? B. B. N. NINETEENTH - CENTURY WRITERS ON SPORT. -What were the real names of the following writers, all on sporting topics ? Impecuniosus ; Quis (author of ' Shelton Gorse,' a poem, 1839) ; Senex (author of ' Observations on Horses,' 1851) ; Sexa- genarian (author of ' The Vine Hunt') ; Stringhalt (author of ' Runs with the Lanark Hounds'); Woodman (author of 'A Few Lines on the Hunter,' 1872) ; Wildrath. BURDOCK. AUSTRIAN HUNTING-HORN. I purchased recently at a sale an old Austrian hunting- horn with the inscription : " Franz Mazogato, Waldhorn und Trompeten Macher, in Neulerchenfeld vor Wienn." Perhaps some reader could inform me as to the ap- proximate date of this maker. F. A. HAWLEY. WILLIAM READER. Was William Reader the author of the poem on Shakespeare commencing Sublime, ethereal, pure, divine, Effulgent as the stars that shine, also the author of ' The Ruins of Kenil- worth,' published in 1856 ?
