He forgave his debtors the amount, provided they paid iOl. We beg warm'y to acknow- ledge our obligations to the Rev. Wigan, the rector, who in the kindest manner searched from to for entries relating to the Manninghams, but without finding anything about them. Vll an utter barrister; whether afterwards advanced to the dignity of being permitted to plead in actual causes in court does not appear. Whilst in the Temple he had for his chamber-fellow Edward Curie, son of William Curie, a retainer of Sir Kobert Cecil, who pro- cured him to be appointed one of the auditors of the Court of Wards.
Several persons of this family are quoted in the Diary, and the close relationship of chamber-fellow ripened not merely into lasting friendship with Edward Curie, and with his brother Walter, who afterwards became Bishop of Winchester, but into affection towards their sister Anne. John Manningham and Anne Curie were married probably about A son was born to them in , who was named Kichard after the gwosi-grandfather at Brad- bourne.
Two other sons were subsequently named John and Wal- ter, and three daughters, Susanna, Anne, and Elizabeth. Where John Manningham lived after he quitted the Temple, whether in London with a view to practice at the Bar, at Hatfield which was the place of residence of the Curies, or at Bradbourne with his "father in love," then a second time a widower, does not appear.
On the 3rd January , the old merchant proved the reality of his assumed fatherhood by executing a deed of gift to John Manningham of the mansion-house of Bradbourne and the lands sur- rounding it in East Mailing, and two years afterwards, on the 21st January, being, as he states, " in tolerable health of body in regard of mine age and infirmities," he made his will.
It confirmed, " if needful," the deed of gift to John Manningham, appointed him sole executor, and with some slight exceptions and the charge of a con- siderable number of legacies, most of them tokens of remem- brance, gave hitn all the residue of his property.
The multitude of the old man's legacies and not less so their character tell of his continuing interest in the connections of his past life. Omitting some of the tautologous ex- pressions it reads thus: — " I charge John Manningham, by all the love and duty which he oweth me, for all my love and liberality which I have always borne [to] him and his heretofore, but chiefly in this my will, that he pay every legacy within six months after my death, those excepted that are appointed to be paid at certain days, and those to be duly paid at their days appointed, as my trust is in him, and as he will answer afore God and me at the latter day!
Amen, good Lord! His will was dated, as we have re- marked, on the 21st January, On the 25th of the following April, 1 Richard Manningham entered into his rest, and John Man- ningham into possession as adopted heir. On the following 1st of May he proved the will of his " father in love" at Doctors' Commons. The few particulars we have been able to gather of the course of this family after the death of Richard Manningham are little more than a brief register of dates.
On the 16th April , William ' The year , given on the monument as that of the death, is contradicted by the date of the will and other circumstances.
It should have been IX Curie the father died. He was interred in Hatheld church, where a monument commemorates his fidelity as a public officer, his good- fortune in his children and friends, and his calm and happy death.
On this occasion John Manningliam registered his arms and pedigree. It is obsjrvable that he did not introduce into it the descent of his cousin Richard Manningham from their common ancestor, nor even his name. If the Visitation may be depended upon we may infer that be- tween the time when the return was made and the 21st January , when John Manningham made his own will, he lost his daughter Anne by death, and his youngest son, to whom he gave the name of his brother-in-law Walter, was born.
Before the same day his other brother-in-law and chamber-fellow Edward Curie had also died. The last trace we have found of him is in In the will of John Manningham to which we have just alluded, and which it will be observed was dated like that of his predecessor on a 21st January, he described himself as of " East Mailing, esquire," and devised Bradbourne and all the lands derived from his " late dear cousin and father in love " Richard Manningham," who for ever," he remarks, " is gratefully to be remembered by me and mine," to his widow for life and after her decease entailed the same on his three sons in succession.
He gave to his daughter Susanna a marriage portion of Z. He named as executors Dr. Walter Curie, who had then ascended upon the ladder of preferment ' " Verdfide Christiand " are the words of the epitaph, which were deemed an authority by the Index-maker for Clutterbuck's Hei'tfordshire, ii. William Roberts of Enfield. The Will was proved on the 4th De- cember, , by Dr.
Curie alone, Dr. Roberts having renounced. Two further facts bring to an end the brief glimmerings we have been able to discover respecting the third generation of the Man- ninghams at Bradbourne. To the boy's mother — " my loving sister Mrs Anne Manningham," the Bishop left " a piece of plate of twenty ounces. Where she was buried does not appear, cer- tainly not at East Mailing. Bradbourne then fell to the second Richard Manningham, who sold it in to Mr.
Justice Twysden, in whose family it still remains. Turn we now from the Diarist and his family to the Diary. It was written by John Manningham whilst a student in the Middle Temple, and runs through the year down to April in Occasionally, as we have remarked in one of our notes, some few of the entries are out of chronological order, either from mistake of the binder or irregularity of the Diarist. In some cases it clearly arose from the habit of the latter of making his entries in any part of the book where there happened to be a vacant space.
The consequences ' See Lansd. XI are of so little moment that we have thought it best in printing to follow the order of the original MS. Chronological sequence is the less important as the book is scarcely what is generally understood by a Diary.
It is rather a note-book in which the writer has jotted down from time to time his impres- sions of whatever he chanced to hear, read, or see, or whatever he desired to preserve in his memory.
The result is a curious patch- work. Anecdotes, witticisms, aphoristic expressions, gossip, rumours, extracts from books, large notes of sermons, occasional memoranda of journeys into Kent and Huntingdonshire, with some little per- sonal matter of the true Diary kind, are all thrown together into a miscellany of odds and.
Our Diarist could not have lived in a better place than in an Inn of Court for the compilation of such a book. The common dinner and the common supper, the less formal gatherings at the buttery- bar and around the hall fire, and in the summer time the exercise taken in the pleasant garden — an indispensable accompaniment of an Inn of Court — brought together multitudes of the "unbaked and doughy youth of the nation," full of life and spirit, most of them under training for legal practice or public business, and sparkling with all the freshness and volatility, the exuberance and glow which distinguish the opening of young wits.
This was the very place to furnish materials for such a note-book as we have described. Among such companions the hon mot of the bar, the scandal of the Court, the tittle-tattle of the town, were the very pabulum of their daily conversation. A witty sarcasm would tell among students not "past the bounds of freakish youth " with infinite effect, and it mattered little — such was the universal freedom of language and manners In those days — how literal the expression, or to what kind of subject it related.
Perhaps even additional zest was given to a pithy speech by its want of reserve in relation to transactions which we have come to regard as better left untalked about. The line of stars which occasionally will be found stretching across our page indicates the occurrence of passages which principally on this ground we have deemed it unadvisable to print. The time in which our Diarist wrote was distinguished by one event of surpassing interest — the death of the great Queen who had ruled the country for more than forty years.
In reference to that event he possessed peculiar opportunities of acquiring information, and what he has told us is essentially of historical authority. His channel of communication with the Court was Dr. Henry Parry, subsequently Bishop of Gloucester and afterwards of Worcester, at that time one of her Majesty's chaplains and on duty in that character at the Queen's death.
On the 23rd March , the rumours respecting her Majesty's health were most alarming. The public were even doubtful whether she was actually alive. In satisfaction of his curiosity our Diarist proceeded to the palace at Rich- mond, where the great business was in progress. He found assem- bled there the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Lord Keeper, and others of the highest official dignitaries. The Queen still lived, and the ordinary daily religious services were still kept up within the sombre palace.
Parry preached before the assembled visitors, and our Diarist was permitted to be one of the audience. The sermon Avas as little connected as could be with the urgent circum- stances which must have drawn off the thoughts of his congrega- tion, but in the preacher's prayers both before and after his discourse he interceded for her Majesty so fervently and pathetically, that few eyes were dry.
Service over, Manningham dined in the privy chamber with Dr. Parry and a select clerical company, who recounted to him the particulars of the Queen's illness ; how for a fortnight she had been overwhelmed with melancholy, sitting for hours with eyes fixed PREFACE.
XUl upon one object, unable to sleep, refusing food and medicine, and until within tbe last two or three days declining even to go to bed. It was the opinion of her physicians that if at an early period she could have been persuaded to use means she would unquestionably have recovered, but she would not, " and princes," our Diarist remarks, " must not be forced.
For two days she had lain " in a manner speechless, very pensive and silent," — dying of her own perverseness. When roused she showed by signs that she still retained her faculties and memory, but the inevitable hour was fast approaching. The day before, at the instance of Dr. Parry, she had testified by gestures her constancy in the Protestantism " which she had caused to be professed," and had hugged the hand of the archbishop when he urged upon her a hopeful consideration of the joys of a future life.
In these particulars our Diarist takes us nearer to the dying bed of the illustrious Queen than any other writer with whom we are acquainted. Parry remained with the Queen to the last. It was amidst his prayers that about three o'clock in the morning which followed Manningham's visit to the palace she ceased to breathe.
For the last few years the public mind had been disturbed by claims put forth on behalf of a multitude of pretenders to the now empty throne. The people had been bewildered and alarmed by the production of no less than fourteen different titles advanced on behalf of a number of separate claimants.
A strong impression pre- vailed that on the Queen's death a struggle was inevitable — that the long peace which the country had owed to the Tudors would come to an end with them. The vacancy had now occurred, and every one was anxious to know in what manner the claimants would prefer their claims, and who would arbitrate amongst their clashing interests?
Above all things, as likely to involve the most important changes, what course would be taken by the Roman Catholics? The statements of our Diarist at this time are of particular interest. The ministers of the late Queen acted with equal promptitude and prudence. Sir Robert Cecil had settled the matter long ago, and all his fellow-ministers now concurred in what he had done.
Not an instant was lost; at the very earliest moment, at day-break, in less than four hours after the Queen had ceased to breathe at Eich. A procla- mation already prepared by Cecil, and settled by the anxious King of Scotland, was produced and signed.
At 10 o'clock the gates of Whitehall were thrown open. Cecil, with a roll of paper in his hand, issued forth at the head of a throng of gentlemen, and with the customary display of tabards and blare of trumpets proclaimed the accession of King James. Opponents were over- awed and silenced when they found that the supporters of the King had as it were stolen a march upon them, and that, although he himself was absent, his friends were in possession of all the powers of government on his behalf The previous agitation subsided almost instantly.
The disturbed sea rocked itself to rest. From this time general anxiety was directed towards the North. XV performed for his prince or country. Such anticipations were like the fire of brushwood. It is painful to think of the disappoint- ment to which they were doomed. Besides these events of an historical character, there are scattered through the Diary a multitude of notices of persons of less social position than Elizabeth and James, but not by any means of less interest.
Living among lawyers, it was of course that many of the young student's notes would relate to them. But many of the lawyers of that day, both those who had earned the honours of their profession and those who still remained in statu pupillari, were men about whom we can never learn too much.

Among the younger men we may notice Sir Benjamin Eudyerd, the future Lord Chief Justice Bramston, and the man who in the coming stormy times was for a period more prominent than them all, the statesman Pym. It will be seen in a note at p. The Middle Temple has clearly the high honour of reckoning him upon their roll. Collier, and have been used by every sub- sequent writer on dramatic subjects. The unfortunate Overbury comes before us several times, such as we should have expected to find him, inconsiderate and impetuous.
Ben Jonson flits across the page. Of Marston there is a disagreeable anecdote which has not been left unnoticed by poetical antiquaries. One peculiarity of this Diary is the very large proportion of it which is given up to notes of sermons.
There is something in this which is characteristic of the time as well as of the writer. It was a sermon-loving age, and that to a degree which it is scarcely possi- ble for us to understand in our degenerate days.
Another thing which is equally at variance with modern notions is that, when reading the original manuscript, we pass at once from passages which we have been obliged to reject as unfit for publication to notes of pulpit addresses which inculcate a high-toned morality based upon those sound principles which apply even to the thoughts and feelings.
It is clear that the incongruity in this contrast which is painful to us was not then perceived. The coarseness of the popular language on the one hand, and the affection for pulpit addresses, even among students of the Inns of Court, on the other, were both parts of what we are accustomed to term the manners of the age, PREFACE. XVU and, like all things universally accepted, their rights and wrongs were never very minutely criticised.
The language we have ob- jected to is of course entirely indefensible. It was the slough of a coarser generation, which our ancestors had not then entirely cast off. Of many of the sermons as represented in these notes we think highly, but we have printed the whole of them in smaller type, so that they may be distinguished at a glance, and if there be any of our readers to whom they are less acceptable, they may be easily passed over.
Among tlie preachers who are here commemorated will be found some of the most celebrated divines of the day; — Dr. Lancelot Andrewes, Dr. John King, Dr. Parry, and Dr. Giles Thompson, afterwards Dean of Windsor ; with two fervid orators, frowned upon by many of their brethren, but most influential with the people, — one of them Mr. Egerton, whose congregation assembled "in a little church or chapel up stairs " in Blackfriars, and the other Mr.
Nor is the book devoid of notices of many other circum- ' So skilfully that one is inclined to suspect that the business of note-taking may have been at that time one of the branches of legal education. A few occasional mistakes of course there are, and when extremely palpable we have sometimes not thought it worth while to notice them. The following are examples. In another place p. Lambert B. Larking, and received in reply one of his customary kindly and suggestive letters.
Since we wrote to him, his earthly career has come, alas! The Camden Council have lost a distinguished member, and many persons a singularly warm-hearted and unselfish friend.
He was indeed one of those attractive characters who carry into old age the fervour and generosity of early life. There never lived a man in whose heart of hearts there dwelt a deeper scorn of everything untruthful, disingenuous, or mean, or who was more distin- guished by a total abandonment of ail selfish interests. Deeply versed in the history of his beloved native county, and possessed of large antiquarian collections derived princi- pally from unpublished materials, the information which he had gathered through a course of many years was at the service of every applicant, and frequently furnished valuable materials for other writers, whilst an over-anxiety to attain an impossible completeness prevented his bringing to an end works which would have established his own right to a high position in the literature of research.
We doubt not that it will justify our estimate of the scholarship and diligence in inquiry of our kind and amiable friend. XIX of the day. It was a time in which ladies' dressing-rooms were nearly allied to apothecaries' shops, and the art of manufacturing female beauty seems to have fallen into the hands of probably a lower and irregular class of medical practitioners.
The poets are full of allusions to this snbject. Massinger sums it up in a passage which we may be excused for quoting: — there are ladies And great ones, that will hardly grant access, On any terms, to their own fathers, as They are themselves, nor willingly be seen Before they have ask'd counsel of their doctor How the ceruse will appear, newly laid-on, When they ask blessing. Such indeed there are That would be still young in despite of time ; That in the wrinkled winter of their age Would force a seeming April of fresh beauty, As if it were within the power of art To frame a second nature.
The anecdotes jotted down by the young Templar speak for them- selves. They of course derive their principal value from the names to which they are attached. Notices of personal peculiarities are so singularly evanescent, they live so entirely in the observation and memory of contemporaries, that it is a biographical gain to have them recorded in any shape. Good things whicli were current in the classical period are here re-invented, or warmed up, for the amusement of the contemporaries of King James.
And the same thing occurs over and over again, from generation to generation. Mots which descended to the times of Manningham reappeared in the pages of Joe Miller, are recorded among the clever sayings of Archbishop Whateley, and in one instance at least may he found among the pulpit witticisms of Eowland Hill. The book is one which would bear a large amount of illustrative annotation. We have endeavoured in most cases to keep down what we had to say to mere citation of the ordinary standard books of reference — the tools with which all literary men work.
It is well for them that our literature can boast of instruments so well suited to their purpose as Dr. Bliss's edition of Wood's Athenae, Mr. Hardy's edition of Le Neve's Fasti, and Mr. Foss's Lives of the Judges — the books to which we have principally referred.
May the number of such works be increased! Finally, we have the grateful task of returning thanks to two gen- tlemen who have specially assisted us in issuing this book. To IVIr. John Forster, the author of the Life of Eliot and of many other valuable historical works, we are indebted for the use of a transcript of part of the Diary here printed ; and to Mr. John Gough Nichols, like the Editors of most of the volumes printed for the Camden Society, we owe the great advantage of many most useful sugges- tions aurmg the progress of the work.
The results of their kind- ness and of the liberality of Mr. Tite will we hope be acceptable to the Society. A puritan is a curious corrector of thinges indifferent.

Rogers was the best example of a pure role model to our four children.
