The Fall of the Reresbys

 

 

MANORIAL COURT ROLLS AND PAPERS

      Manor of Hooton Roberts - ref. WWM/C/6

         FILE - Various papers - ref.  WWM/C/6/199-end  - date: 1602-1690
            [from Scope and Content] Articles of agreement between Wentworth and Reresby.

As scandals were abundant amongst noble families the Reresby family were not without their fair share and in 1604 there was one concerning Godfrey Reresby who took advantage of a young servant girl named Alice Wildsmith who was a servant to Ralph Reresby of  Ickles, gent . Alice had lived in the Norton locality and was sent home, there she gave birth to twins who apparently died at birth, the twins were baptised and buried at Norton. What happened to poor Alice is not known.

 The Reresbys were Roman catholics and apparently refused to accept the reformed religion at the time. The fact is mentioned on a list  of Principal gentry in the West Riding which was sent to Lord Burliegh by Gargrave  in 1572, in the list Sir Thomas is described as a doubtful or newtor in matters of faith. In 1606 Sir Thomas and his wife are returned as non-communicants, and George Englishman M. D. A Schoolmaster which Teacheth the children of Sir Thomas Reresby was also included and  denounced as a recusant. [ A Roman Catholic who broke the law by refusing to attend Church of England services in England between the 16th and 18th centuries ]
The Reresby family are recorded as being of the Roman Catholic faith during this period by the church of Rome, and that they had an inhouse priest, that priest may well have been George Englishman the teacher above.
There was a declaration known as a protestation  which Thomas and his wife did not sign , the protestation read thus:

I,-------- do, in the presence of Almighty God, promise, vow, and protest to maintain, and defend as farr as lawfully I maye, with my Life, Power and Estate, the true Reformed Protestant religion, expressed in the Doctrine of the Church of England, against all Popery and Popish Innovations, within this Realme, contrary to the same Doctrine, and according to the duty of my Allegiance, His Majesties Royal Person, Honour and Estate, as alsoe the Power and Privileges of Parliament, the lawful Rights and Liberties of the Subjects, and any person that maketh this Protestation, in whatsoever he shall do in the lawful Pursuance of the same; and to my power, and as farr as lawfully I may, I will appose and by all good Ways and Means endeavour to bring to condign Punishment all such as shall, either by Force, Practice, Councels, Plots, Conspiracies, or otherwise, doe any Thing to the contrary of any Thing in this present Protestation contained: and further, that I shall, in all just and honourable ways, endeavour to preserve the Union and Peace betwixt the Three Kingdoms of England, Scotland and Ireland: and neither for Hope, Feare, nor other Respect, shell relinquish this Promise, Vow and Protestation.

Sir Thomas Reresby  died in 1609 and upon his death the Reresby family became involved in a family feud involving the property at Ickles. The furniture in the house being the property of Ralph Reresby who had held a lease which had actually expired. Ralph who had also recently died had applied for a further 30 year lease which had not been agreed upon. However the executors of his will claimed that a definite promise had been made, and therefore refused to give up possession.  A bill of complaint was made out and the resulting proceedings were held in the star chamber  in the month of June 1610. Sir Thomas Reresby of Thrybergh Knight, and George Reresby Esquire his son and heir being the plaintiffs against Leonard Reresby and others defendants The bill of complaint was .

Whereas Sir Thomas Reresby is lawfully seized of the manor, capital messuage or tenement called Ickles, being one of the dwelling houses and ancient habitations of Plaintiff and his ancestors , and of divers lands thereunto belonging, being in the parish of Rotherham Co. York, which he had agreed to convey to the said George Reresby, the plaintiffs had allowed one Ralphe Reresby being sick uncle of Sir Thomas to live in said house at his earnest desire.
Since whose death last November one Leonard Reresby  himself pretending to be one of the Executors, claimed title to the premises, but knowing his supposed title could not prevail in a court of law, he assembled together a number of people, upwards of thirty, of riotous behaviour, who had been trained in committing riots, routs, and unlawful outrages. Arrayed with swords, daggers, bills,pikes, long staves, horsemans staves, and divers other warlike and unlawful weapons, on 28 November last they marched towards the said house in Ickles, upon colour and pretence, only to attend the corpse of the said Ralph Reresby deceased and to attend his funeral.
The rioters returning from the funeral refused to leave the house, and broke open all the locks of the said house[ except of one room. Continuing there for some months after by direction of the said Leonard Reresby they pulled down, broke up and took away, most part of the houses standing on the premises and the fences and hedges, wholly spoilt and defaced the gardens and orchards, burned down the timberwork of the well belonging to said house, and cut down the apple and pear trees and other timber. Finding the plaintiffs servant George Benney, driving cattle, the rioters called him rogue, rascal, villain and other things not fette herein to be remembered, assaulted him with their weapons, wounded him, and would have murdered him but for the timely rescue by some passers by. They also seriously wounded two other servants of the plaintiffs, who occupied one room in the said house at Ickles threatening to murder them if they came to the house again.
The plaintiffs complained to John Mallyverer and Christopher Wraye Esquire two justices of the peace who went to revue the premises and eject the rioters. But the latter refused to open the doors swearing with many terrible and vile oathes that they should not come in without good authority. In the end they yielded and as the Justices entered fled to escape being put in Gaol. But on the second of April 1610, at the instigation of the said Leonard Reresby, they assembled again in arms, and entered at night the said house, whereof they still hold possession.
The plaintiffs asked that writs of subpoena may be directed to Leonard Reresby gentleman, Thomas Johnson clerk, Alexandra Rashforth, Thomas Wilson & c, & c.


In reply to this bill Sir Leonard and four others entered a plea and Demurrer, on the grounds that before it was exhibited one Robert Vicars recovering by an action of debt against the said Thomas Reresby in the court of common pleas Westminster the sum of 133 6s 4d with 6 13s 4d costs, had thereupon sued forth process of Law and had outlawed the said Sir Thomas at the city of York on 26 March 1610. The said outlawry  was undischarged and because of it Sir Thomas had inserted in his bill the name of George Reresby who was no party nor grieved by the supposed offences. The defendants therefore demurred in law upon the said bill of Complaint, demanding judgement whether they should be compelled to make further answer, and prayed to be dismissed with their costs.

Furthermore, Leonard Reresby and Arnold his brother brought a cross suit in the Star Chamber against Sir Thomas and others, the interrogatories and dispositions to decide on the question whether a lease had been promised or not.



  The central block of the Manor at Ickles existing house was apparently rebuilt about the year 1580., it is thought that Sir Thomas Reresby of Thrybergh whose will is dated in 1586 and who died in 29 Elizabeth, that is to say within the year ending 16th November 1587, erected the present house, either in preparation for the marriage of his eldest son, Sir Thomas which marriage took place in 1587-8 or as a residence for his widow
In 1587 the house was leased to Ralph who was a younger son of Sir Thomas by Lady Reresby as she did not wish to live in what would have been her Dower house Reresby a younger son,
Sir George married Elizabeth Tamworth, of Sherville Court, Southampton, and they had a son named John, this John was to have a son who was to become the most famous of all the Reresby's, ironically toward the end of the family fortune. Sir George Rersby and his wife took over the residence which was an estate of around 300 acres and many outbuildings, including the estate at Brinsford in 1609-10, they had fifteen children whose names and arms are emblazoned upon the family pedigree. Now Sir George was keen to breed horses and fortunately there was a sufficient amount of stabling at Ickles

 

There must also have been abundant stabling, for he had a considerable number of horses. However despite the fact he was a great manager of his other interest the horses he bred were not well received and considered a poor buy thus resulting in a loss taking into account the amount of land at Ickles and Thrybergh set aside for his stock


He was also like many nobles a lover of Hawks as a pastime.


This tall handsome man was reputedly a great lover of expensive clothes and travel with the misfortune of a not to popular Mother in the Lady Reresby one Mary Monson. This lady had kept her son from his right to reside in Thrybergh hall the family seat upon the death of her husband in 1619. George was able to gain his rightful residence and this occurred when he decided to pay his Mother a visit and found her not in residence, George wisely secured the door and kept possession until he died in 1628. George became sick and was lying in his bed when two bailiffs arrived to arrest him. Unbelievably they had been sent by his Mother who had heard that George was sick. Mary Monson was to marry twice more and ruined the lives of both these husbands, she also outlived them all.

incl. 1612 sale of manor of Ashover
RERESBY  Sir T. 6689 ff.94-144
Grant to Sir T. RERESBY from E. PESHALL, of lands in of Ashover, 8 James I.

In 1613 Sir Thomas Reresby became Sheriff of Derbyshire a position he lost by striking Sir William of Wentworth. This event was recorded in court at the Rotherham sessions. The fight and argument began with the pulling down of fences in Horton township. The words used in this argument were abusive and today would seem somewhat childish, an example being 'Turd in thy teeth, turd in thy teeth' Thomas married a Mary Monson, of South Charlton and this marriage was to start the crumbling of the Reresby dynasty. The marriage was also to lead Thomas Reresby to an early grave, Mary made his life so miserable he became seriously ill and died in 1619.
 

1. DEEDS OF TITLE, LEASE, ETC

         Derbyshire: SCARSDALE HUNDRED

            Parish of Ashover

               FILE - Counterpart of trust deed - ref.  Bag C/2389  - date: 26 Apr 1619
                  [from Scope and Content] Sir Thomas Reresbye of Thribergh (co. York), knight, to Sir ffrancis Wortley of Wortley, knight and baronet, Sir Robert Mounson of Horbury (co. York), knight, Anthony Mounson of Carlston (co. Lincs) and Thomas Lewes of Marr (co. York). Manor or capital messuage in Ashover and the advowson, for raising portions for Reresby's daughters.

The widow of Sir George Elizabeth Tamworth after the marriage of her eldest son about 1632 removed to the Ickles which was her jointure [ law an estate or property settled by a husband on his wife at the time of their marriage, to take effect in the event of his death ] where she continued to live for many years. It is believed that Elizabeth made an addition to the house at Ickles around 1632 on the western wing of the house which was on the side of the garden windows. Elizabeth was like her late husband tall, and she was described as being a very comely for her age. She possessed a quick mind and very sound in her judgement whilst farming the property. She is recorded in 1638 as farming.

 

She was also a Roman catholic and retained her own confessor and priest who was a constant advisor. In the year 1641 she is recorded appearing at the Rotherham sessions in July of that year along with her 15 year old daughters Dianna and Dorothy as Recussants who had failed to attend their parish church during the month of April For some reason Elizabeth was recorded as Mary .
Sir John Reresby tells us that his grandmother towards the latter end of the wars went to London, and continued there till she died, about the 10th April 1666 aged seventy years and more. Her move may have been in 1653 as Nicholas Hurt mentions in his will of 1653 his lease of Ickles from Ladie Reresby and Lady Reresbys chamber in the house bequeathing to his son-in-law Nicholas Stafford.
