William Dugdale Correspondence

William Jackson

Staffordshire gentleman


William Jackson, Stanhope to William Dugdale, 22 January 1665

'My father should have waited you at Cheadle your first visitation and not being in a Capacity hee sent my Brother to pleade his excuse and your satisfaction which was not then allowed. Since wee have made our addresses to Mr Ashmole to the same purpose. Really Sir my Ancestors have signed with the seale wee use since time out of minde but by what primitive right am uncertaine'.

Endorsed: 'No sufficient proofe made for this Armes he pretends to'.
