12 ax. j.. ai, 1922.] NOTES AND QUERIES. J. M. W. TURNER AND HADDON HALL. Did Turner paint Haddon Hall from the west bank of the River Wye or is there any engraving of same known, by Turner ? If so, where might either be seen ? H. S. KING FAMILY BOOK-PLATES. I possess two book-plates of the King family, namely, Thomas King and Captain William King, R.N. Arms : Gules a lion statant gardant argent, between three ducal coronets, two and one, or. Crest : On a wreath of the colours, a talbot's head erased, collared and ringed or. Also a book-plate of Mrs. William Heath (nee King), a lozenge with the same arms impaling Heath. To what family of King did they belong and where can a pedi- gree be seen ? Are the arms and crest regi- stered at the College of Arms ? Any informa- tion respecting the families of King and Heath would be much appreciated, LEONARD C. PRICE. Essex Lodge, Ewell. ' THE RUNNING HORSE,' PICCADILLY. The Observer of the 1st inst. states that, in excavating for the new club for the R.A.F. in Piccadilly, pewter tankards of the eighteenth century bearing the inscription ' The Run- ning Horse ' were dug up. No such inn is named by Mr. de Castro in his list of eighteenth-century inns and taverns. Perhaps he will enlighten us. It may be ' The Running Horse ' was not a place of public entertainment, though that seems unlikely. W. R. DAVIES. GEORGE HENRY HARLOW, the artist, was born in St. James Street, London, on June 10, 1787, and is described in the ' D.N.B.,' xxiv. 408, as the " posthumous son of a China merchant." I should be glad to learn fuller particulars of his parentage. G. F. R. B. SIR ROBERT HESILRIGGE, BART. Suc- ceeded as eighth baronet, April 23, 1763. He is said to have been disinherited by his i father and to have emigrated to America, j I should be glad to ascertain the date and j place of his death, as well as the date of his marriage with Sarah, daughter of Nathaniel Waller of Roxburgh, New England. G. F. R. B. DALSTONS OF ACORNBANK, Temple Sowerby, Westmorland. This family re- ceived from Henry VIII. a grant of this estate formerly belonging to the Knights Templars. In 1601 or thereabouts some of the family emigrated to Ireland. Is a pedigree of the family in existence showing the names of the family which went to Ireland, and whether they changed their name on settling there, a? the name Dalston does not appear to be known there ? STEMMA.

J. LANDFEAR LTJCAS. 101, Piccadilly. AUTHORS WANTED. 1. Can any reader name the author of the following lines ? " When Spring's voice is heard In that minor third Which none but the cuckoo knows." A. G, 2. * Margaret's Tomb.' I have in my possession an engraving called ' Margaret's Tomb,' by Bartolozzi after Bunbury. At the bottom of the engraving are some lines of which I enclose a copy. Can anyone tell me where the lines come from ? I have searched through a good many poets and have shown them to a good many friends without success. MARGARET'S TOMB. Her bloom was like the springy flower That sips the silver dew ; The rose was budded on her cheek Just opening to the view. But love had like a canker worm Consumed her early pride ; The rose grew pale and left her cheek ; Before her time she died.
