The Compendium of County History will be resumed in our next volume.
A Correspondent states, in reply to a question in vol. LXXXIX. i. 587, "Mr. Porter was a man of a clear head and good understanding. He was, when a boy, a climbing chimney sweeper; he became a master, and kept a very large number of boys, to whom he was a most kind and benevolent master. At one time he engaged in a brewery in St. Giles's, but soon quitted it, and became a builder in Marylebone, in which he acquired considerable property. He deserves a further memorial."
T. A. in reply to MENTOR, p. 300, thinks it very probable that the family of the Souths he mentions, may be of the same family with the Sir Francis South mentioned in p. 578 of our last Volume; both from the similarity of the arms of the two families, and their having belonged to the same county. T. A. recommends a search to be made at the Heralds' College, and by inspecting the Arms and Pedigree of the Family of Sir F. South, probably some elucidation of the matter may be the result of the enquiry.
C. observes, 66 Long Wool has been for an average of 10 years preceding at 20s. per todd of 28lbs. ; and rents, taxes, and poor-rates, about one half what they are now; therefore, unless by a protecting price against importation, charging the Foreigner much the same increased tax we bear in England, it would be clearly impossible for the Grazier to pay his way; as at 40s. per todd now he will do no better than he did 22 years ago at 20s."
A Correspondent says, that "some of the Knevett family were residents in Cheshire. In the old Church of Malpas is registered, John Knevett of the Ash of Tussingham, gent. buried Sept. 30, 1673. The following names are painted on a board in the Church. Edward Knevett, Alderman of London, left to the use of the poor 10l. per ann. for ever. John Knevett of Tush, gent. left 101. per ann. for ever. There are no dates on the boards. There was also a Mr. Robert Koevett, who possessed a very capital estate at Nantwich, Cheshire. There was a marriage of Sir Hen. Knevett of Horsley, with Anne, daughter of Sir Musgrave, of Hayton Castle, Cumberland, who appears to have been her second husband; her first I suspect was Sir F. Weston. The situation of these families, by tracing the dates, particularly the defective period of the generation of Rich. Standish and Eliz. Leigh his wife, which is rather difficult to
exemplify, renders a probability that, by a strict investigation, the wished-for information may be gained."
G. H.W.remarks,“Spenser dedicates his Prosopopoia' to the Lady Compton and Mountegle ;-query, was this Peeress Elizabeth Spencer, wife of Lord Compton, afterwards Earl of Northampton? if so, how was she entitled to the addition of ' and Montegle ? Spenser in this dedication speaks of the affection and duty' which he is bound' to bear the house from whence Lady Compton sprung; her father, Sir John Spencer, was a rich citizen;-query, whether of the same family as Spencer of Althorp? The Countess of Derby (a Spencer of Althorp) is said to have patronized the Poet, her presumed relation."
H. A-N proposes the following questions:-1. Whether there has been any description of the Temple of Jupiter Ammon in Libya? or has any traveller been to view its ruins (if any does exist) since the time of Alexander.-2. Whether there are any Memoirs of Mrs. Eliz. Draper (the Eliza of Sterne), and whether her husband or herself were natives of England or Bombay? as the Magazine for March, 1805, announces the death of Daniel Draper, in St. James's-street, aged 77, formerly second of the Council at Bombay.-3. Whether General Gunning, the husband of Miss Minafie, the Novelist, was brother of the celebrated Countess of Coventry, and the Duchess of Argyle?
S. Y. requests an account of the two following Books; the former of which was written against Sir J. Browne's Religio Medici, and the latter against his Vulgar Errors: 1. Medicus medicatus, or the Physician's Religio cured by a lenitive or gentle potion,, &c. 12mo. By Alexander Ross, 1645.-2. Eudoxa, sive Questionum quarundam examen probabile, 8vo. By Dr. John Robinson, 1656.
A CONSTANT READER inquires where he may obtain a copy of the old song of St. George and the Dragon ?
VIATOR is referred to p. 495 for the last part of his communication which has come to hand.
