Family Tree of Oswald Wrangham


Whose first wife was buried at Chester-le-Street on December 29th 1609.
P.R.O., London, CP 25/(2) 382/17 PFF 2658 and CP 25/(2) 379/9 PFF 2659. See 'Yorkshire Feet of Fines for the Stuart Period'; The Yorkshire Archaeological Society, Record Series volumes LIII, 1915, and LVIII, 1917.
P.R.O., London, case nr. 05579, consisting of three documents, the largest of which is the complaint of Thomas Nandyke against William Denton, the incumbent of Langton. Thomas Nandyke claimed that William Denton owed him and his late brother #700. Armed with a writ, he seized hay, part of the tithes due to William Denton at Langton. The latter's supporters, including Richard Wrangham, whose name has been added between the lines, broke open locked yards and rescued the hay. Nandyke also tried to seize barley at Kirby Moorside and Richard Wrangham was one of the rioters, routers and disorderly persons who resisted the seizure. The other two documents are the replies of William Denton and William Denton the Younger to this complaint. See 'Index to the Court of Star Chamber; James I', P.R.O.
P.R.O., London, WARD 7/89/121 PFF 2659. See 'Calendar of Inquisitions Post Mortem for the County of York in the P.R.O. London'; The Yorkshire Archaeological and Topographical Association, Record Series volume I, 1885.

Burke's 'Genealogical and Heraldic History of the Commoners of Great Britain and Ireland' (vol. II, pages 311-313; London, 1835; the forerunner to Burke's Landed Gentry) mistakenly states that Robert Wrangham was the son of Robert Wrangham of Langton on the Wolds, buried April 17th 1668. According to the pedigree recorded in this work 'the family is traditionally descended from the MR. WRAYNHAM, or WRANGHAM, of the State-Trials, the talented, upright, and undaunted victim of the "meanness" of Lord Bacon, or rather that of his servants; and it is recorded in the very first year (1653) of the registers of Langton on the Wolds, near Malton, where some pieces of ground, still bearing the name of "Wrangham's closes", attest its ancient respectability. That property, however, through the subdivision rendered necessary by the populousness of one or two generations, or by the imprudence or improvidence of some of its possessors, has gradually melted away.' Later generations of the family appear in the 1937 and 1952 editions of Burke's Landed Gentry.

His mother's name appears as Amy (i.e. Naomi) in the register.
Note: the Margaret Wrangham, bapt. Feb. 24, 1711/12 was, no doubt, identical with the Margaret Wrangham, the 'intended wife', mentioned as such in the will of Borlace Pike, dated at St. Helena, 24 November, 1733; proved 22nd January, 1733/34, at 'The Castle'.

'He was appointed to Lucknow in 1782, the year of his marriage, but soon came back to Calcutta, perhaps at his wife's wish. He was thirty-two when he married and was able to settle forty thousand pounds on Emma; he was a member of the Board of Trade by the time he was thirty-eight. She continued to be the talk of the town and in the interval of presenting him with 'four lovely children' was a brilliant success as an amateur actress.'

John Bristow also had a number of illegitimate children, as recounted in William Hickey's memoirs (vol. IV, page 101, in reference to the year 1793): 'We received in Calcutta the unpleasant intelligence of the total loss of the Winterton, East Indiaman, outward bound, which ship was wrecked upon the Island of Madagascar, several of the passengers and crew being drowned. Amongst those who luckily escaped were six young ladies, two of them being daughters by a native woman of Mr. John Bristow, of whom I have already spoken as having married that celebrated St. Helena belle, Miss Emma Wrangham'. Among the baptisms recorded in the Bengal Presidency are to be found the following: John, son of Mr John Bristow, May 20th 1774; Charlotte, daughter of John Bristow, Esq., Senior Merchant in the H.C.'s service, born March 1776 and baptised August 4th 1780; Mary, daughter of Mr John Bristow, of the H.C.'s service, September 1777; William, son of John Bristow, Esq., Senior Merchant in the H.C.'s service, born July 1778 and baptised August 4th 1780.
