Staffordshire gentleman


Francis Hanbury, Wolverhampton to William Dugdale, 6 March 1664

'Honoured Sir, In answer to your second summons to appeare here before you this day (although I appeared at Wolverhampton upon your first). These are humbly to acquaint you, that I shall waite upon you; But I humbly conceived it necessary to send this before me, to give you what satisfaction I could as to the Coate of Armes I clayme and my Ancestors tyme out of mind have peaceably enjoyed'. Soon after Dugdale was in Wolverhampton, Mr Pudsey of Seisdon visited him & told him he was satisfied with his claim.

Postscript: 'Sir, be pleased further to understand, that my Uncle Hanbury (who was also summoned) is a Tradesman & cannot leave hi shopp being Market-day with him, but what shall be required on his part as well as my owne, he wished me to satisfie.'
