9*8. XL MAY 2, 1903.] NOTES AND QUERIES.


his fellowship before 1535, as he is not in the list of the fellows in ' Valor Eccles.,' ii. 4 The prebendary, having a dispensation from residence at Chichester, was living at Heading in 1532 ('Cal. of Letters and Papers,' vol. v No. 771), and he was hanged for denying the king's supremacy in November, 153J (Stow's 'Chronicle,' ed. 1631, p. 577) the date is misprinted in Gillow, v. 452. That this recusant was identical with the pre- bendary is clear from the 'Cal. of Letters and Papers,' vol. xiv. pt. 2, Nos. 256, 613 As he has been beatified, the following ex- tracts from the Winchester College records will probably be of some interest.

a. From the * Register of Scholars,' in the list for 1488 :

"Johes Rugge de Tiverton [?] filius tenentis de Down ton ['.e., probably Downton, Wilts, where the college still has property], xij annorum in ad vincula sti petri pterit. [Marginal note] Socius Winton."

b. From the ' Vetus Registrum,' which con- tains a list of the wardens and fellows down to 1712, the last entry stating that Thomas Brathwaite, LL.D., was admitted as warden on 24 March, 1711 (1711/2) :

"Johes Rugge de Teverton in comitatu Devonie, Exon. dioc., in artibus magister, socius admissus et juratus quinto die Martij anno Domini millmo quingentesinio vicesimo, anno regis Henrici Octavi xij. [With the unsympathetic addition by a later hand :] pependit apud Redyng."

As to the authorship of the marginal notes, the late Mackenzie E. C. Walcott (' D.N.B.,' lix. 11), in his ' William of Wykeham and his Colleges,' p. 349, says of Robert Pink C D.N.B.,' xlv. 308), Warden of New College, Oxford, 1617-47, that "his valuable anti- quarian and biographical notes are added at the side of the registers of both the St. Mary Wiiiton Colleges."

DREW FAMILY (9 th S. xi. 248). In answer to the query of C. W. R. concerning the descendants of my grandfather, the late Admiral Andrew Drew, I beg to state that there are many of us living in England, and two or three in South Africa. His living descendants include one daughter, two sons, eighteen grandchildren, and about a dozen great-grandchildren. The daughter is the wife of Admiral de Horsey, of Cowes, and the eldest surviving son probably the best- known member of the family, and father of the present writer is the Rev. Andrew A. W. Drew, M.A., vicar of St. Antholin's, Nunhead, and for many years a prominent member of the London School Board, who was born a fortnight before Queen Victoria came to the throne somewhere in the wilds of West

Canada whilst his father, then Capt. Drew, upon whose head a heavy price was put by the rebels, was engaged in some of the hazard- ous undertakings referred to by C. W. R. The admiral's eldest son, the late Phillimore Drew, died a few years back at Capetown. Three other sons, John, Randolph, and Aubrey, have been dead many years. The

gnmgest is Mr. Thomas Adolphus Stilwell rew, of Rye Hill Park, Peckham Rye. One of the grandsons, Lieut. Spencer de Horsey, served with the Naval Brigade in the late South African war, where he was wounded. Admiral Drew was born in 1792, and died in 1878, and was buried at Forest Hill cemetery. Some of the admiral's exploits were utilized for fictional purposes by a writer in 'Beeton's Boy's Annual' about twenty years ago. I may state that I offered to supply biographical materials of my grandfather's career to Mr. Sidney Lee for the Supplement to the ' Dic- tionary of National Biography,' but my letter was vouchsafed no reply. No " life " of the admiral has been written.


SIR NATHANIEL RICH (9 th S. v. 249, 461). At the first reference I asked for information as to the burial-place of Sir Nathaniel Rich, who died in 1636, and who in his will desires, if it shall be found convenient, to be buried at Stondon, in Essex, where he resides. Since then I have been in communication with Sir Charles H. S. Rich, of Shirley, who informs me that Sir Nathaniel was buried at Dalham, in Suffolk (recently made famous by its con- nexion with the late Mr. Cecil Rhodes). The rector of the parish writes that no monument remains, and that he can find no other trace of the family save the date of this burial, 24 November, 1636. The inference is that Sir Nathaniel was on a visit to the Stuteville family of Dalham Hall when his summons came. E. H. L. REEVE.

THE OLD WIFE (9 th S. xi. 188, 310). A sen- tence in my communication has been dis- placed. In p. 311, col. 1, " The reason seems

o be," &c., should come next after "It is

remarkable that all these stories relate to Saturday afternoon, rather than to Sunday tself." " J. T. F.

KEATS: "SLOTH" (9 th S. xi. 187, 232, 277, 294). The name glutton for Gulo luscus is as common as that of wolverine. The regular name in French for wolverine is glouton.
