414 NOTES AND QUERIES. [12 S.X.MAY 27, 1922. The Salopian origin of the family is based on a note in the Wotton pedigree ; By tradition the family of Avelyn or Evelyn came to Harrow, Co. Middlesex, from Evelyn near Tower Castle, in the hundred of South Bradford, Salop, 1410. Camden also refers to the tradition, but Miss Evelyn has not been able to make out the connexion, although she has discovered a family called Ivelith in the thirteenth century, and a place called Ivelynton in a tenure roll of 1287. H> MAYNABD SMITH. 8, College Green, Gloucester. RHYMED HISTORY OF ENGLAND (12 S. x. 249, 297, 352, 376, 397). The author of the lines given at ante, p. 376, was John Collins, not Collings, and they will be found on p. 9 of the collection of his poems entitled ' Scripscrapologia ; or, Collins's Doggerel Dish Of All Sorts,' which he published in Bir- mingham in 1804.

Marriage of Etherege's daughter to William Canning. This mar- riage is also recorded in 'Marriage Licences granted by the Bishop of London ' (Harl. Soc.

At ante, p. 364. The paragraph, end of col. 1, beginning " ' The Colonial Records,' " should be corrected to read : " The ' Colonial Records ' (vol. v., A.D. 1622-76, p. 2) give the deed of transfer of the two shares of land known as ' Incognita ' in Paget's Tribe lying ' between the Shares of land of George Etheridge, Vintner, and Sir Wm. Wade and his Assigns,' from William Burgis to Michael Evans on May 3, 1643. The deed next entered records "the conveyance of the two shares, ' Incognita,' from Michael Evans to Laurence Underwood on Sept. 15, 1645. The position of the land is here similarly described (' Colonial Re- cords,' Office of the Colonial Secretary, Hamilton, Bermuda). "- 3. Ante, p. 364, third line from end of col. 2, for " 1656 " read 1651. In the second line from the bottom insert after " died," by 1656 (his unsatisfactory and midutiful son John, &c.). 4. The following entry (P.C.C., ' Admini- stration Act Book,' folio 168) refers to the decease of Capt. Etherege : November, 1651. George Etheridge.

Inventory exted 22H 16s 2d [marginal note]. D. FOSTER. Mount Holyoake College, South Hadley, Mass., U.S.A. ROCHE SANADOIRE (12 S. x. 329). The statement in Baedeker's ' Southern France ' (p. 235) that "the summit of the Roche Sanadoire was once the hold of a body of English adventurers, dislodged in 1386," seems to be inaccurate as regards the date, and I am obliged to C. S. C. for drawing attention to the passage. The reference to Froissart in Louis Brehier's ' L'Auvergne ' (Paris, 1912, p. 52) is likewise a mistake. A detailed account of the affair will be found in the ' Chronique du bon due Loys de Bourbon,' written about 1429 by Jehan Cabaret d'Orville. According to this chronicle, which was republished by A. M. Chazaud (Paris, Librairie Renouard, 1876), the English adventurers were dislodged from the Roche Sanadoire in 1375 (not 1385 or 1386). An account of the siege will be found in chapters xxiii.-xxv. (p. 96 seq.). H. A. PIEHLEB, English Editor, Baedeker's Guide Books. M. Paul Bourgeb, in his novel, ' Un Drame dans le Monde,' p. 152, puts into the mouth of one of his characters a short account of the taking of this stronghold in 1386. The authority he quotes is ' La Ghronique du bon due Loys,' composee par son secretaire Jehan d'Oronville, dit Cabaret." The alias Cabaret would not in those days connote an ale-house story, and I assume M. Bourget refers to a real and existing chronicle, though I have not verified it, and even distinguished novelists have been known to create their authorities as well as their personages. He gives the names of the English commander and his lieutenants as Robert Chennel, and Nolimbarbe and Richard Credo, " fils du lord-maire de Londres," which gives pedigree-makers a chance.
