ADDITIONS TO THE OBITUARY.
Vol. LXXXIX. ii. p. 369.-The will of the Duke of Richmond was administered to in Doctors' Commons on the 13th instant. All his real estate is devised to the present Duke, sole executor, in the most concise terms, the whole contents being in a single page of common paper.

The whole of his real estates are devised to his own male issue; and in default thereof, to his brother, Mark Somerville, and his male issue, with like remainder to his other half-brothers, Kenelm Somerville and William Somerville, and their male issue; after, to the heirs male of the body of the person who first had the title, honour, and peerage of Lord Somerville, to which he, the testator, succeeded by lineal descent; and failing such issue, to the heirs ge

J. O. is referred for the Pedigrees he enquires after, to the Heralds' College.
T. MOLINEUX will find the anecdote of Abp. Usher he enquires after, in vol. LXII. p. 715.
A COUNTRY GENTLEMAN'S Question concerning the Marquis of Stafford's Picture Gallery, is of too delicate a nature for a Public Print. An answer might be had for a shilling at the Prerogative office.
J. BEATSON, in reply to a CONSTANT READER, (p. 290.) adduces the following circumstance: The Rev. T. G. Clare, rector of St. Andrew's, Holborn, who died June 4, 1819," lived at the parsonagehouse, St. Andrew's-court, and his widow remained in the house for more than
three months after, for by law she is given
six months grace to remove."
In farther answer to MENTOR, p. 222, a QUONDAM CHURCH WARDEN says, "In an action upon the case for a disturbance of the enjoyment of a pew; if the plaintiff claims it by prescription, he must state it in the declaration as appurtenant to a messuage in the parish. This prescription may be supported by an enjoyment for 36 years, and perhaps for any time above 20 years. In such an action against the Ordinary, the plaintiff must allege and prove repairs of the pew."
A CORRESPONDENT replies to the Inquiry (p. 2.) respecting the issue of Lucy Knivett, daughter of John Knivett, of Norwich, esq. who married Lucy, daughter and co-heir of Charles Suckling, esq. of Bracondale, Norfolk. By her he had issue 1st. Paston Knivett; 2d. Thomas Knivett; 3d. John Knivett, buried at Trowse, Norfolk, 1685-6; 4th. John or Jonathan Knivett, Captain in the army, buried at Trowse, but has since been removed to Ashwelthorp, Norfolk; 5th. Chas. Knivett; 6th. Henry Knivett; 7th. Elizabeth Knivett, married Henry Wilson, esq.; 8th. Lucy Knivett, married first, John Holt, esq. and 2d, John Field; 9th. Catherine Knivett.
MINIMUS E CLERIS says, "It is one of the questions usually put by the Governors of Queen Anne's Bounty prior to the augmentation of any small living
Is the Living a Chapel of Ease or a Perpetual Curacy? He wishes therefore to ask, 1. "What is the distinction between a Chapel of Ease and a Perpetual Curacy? -2. If there be a distinction, are Chapels of Ease (distinct from Perpetual Curacies) numerous ?-3. Are not those Perpetual Curacies, which are under a Mother Church, likewise Chapels of Ease?"
CLERICUS LANCASTRIENSIS remarks, "In your Magazine for March (page 271), you
inform your Readers that the Gazette of Feb. 22, contains the Proclamation usually issued, at the commencement of each new reign, for the encouragement of piety and virtue, and for the preventing and punishing of vice, profaneness, and immorality.-I wish to ask whether that Proclamation was issued earlier in the reign of our late beloved King than the 27th year, i. e. in the year 1787;-and by what former King it had been issued?"
certain public companies- The Royal M. observes, "a toast is often given in Family-and may they never forget the principles which placed them on the
The sentiment is not sufficiently explanatory, as it does not allude firmed by the Act of Settlement, as being to their rightful claims by descent, con
the next in the Protestant succession after the death of Queen Anne, without issue."
signia of Earl Nelson, Sir Wm. Domville, WHITCHURCH states, that the armorial in&c. are frequently seen with the shield quarterly; in the first quarter, the Arms as augmented and enriched by royal order; the second containing the Arms as used before the augmentation; (the third and fourth a family quartering of ancestry;) is not this to be considered as a redundant method, it making the interesting objects in the augmentation too minute to be well distinguished? also is not the royal augmentation intended to do away the use of the former coat ?
OSCAR asks, "When a man marries an heiress, who afterwards dies in his lifetime, ought he after her death to quarter her coat with his own? Or otherwise, how is it to be known that his wife is not still living, if he wishes to continue bearing her coat, which he may do?"
G. H. W. says, "in p. 188, Mr. Dick is called " heir to the title of Braid." Query, whether any such title ever existed?"-Probably, heir to the Scotch Baronetage of Dick, of Braid, in Mid-Lothian,
In the preface to "HASTED's Kent," 8vo. 1797, the Author, in stating the embarrassments frequently arising from the neglect of pedigrees, and the consequent advertisements for the next of kin, says, "The well-known loss of the Selby Estate to the right heir, is a recent instance what care ought to be taken in this particular."-W. S. is anxious to ascertain what Selby estate is alluded to, or any circumstances connected therewith.
Au OLD CORRESPONDENT is referred for an explanation of an oriel window, to vol. LXIX. p. 191.
A complete List of the New Parliament shall be given in our SUPPLEMENT.
