Genealogical Notes and Queries.
GOUGH. Wanted : The parentage of Thomas Gough, who, leaving in England a son named Francis, is called in the record of his marriage (about 1740) to Sophia Dorsey of Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A., Thomas Gough of London.
A son of this second marriage, Harry Dorsey Gough, called his country home (previously owned by Maccubbins) “ Perry Hall," thus suggesting descent from Sir Henry Gough of Perry Hall, county Stafford, born January 3, 1649 ; knighted by King Charles II. at St. James ; died January 24, 1724.
Sir Henry Gough gave consent to his sister Dorothy's marriage at St. Margaret's, West minster, on February 25, 1673-4. His sons Matthew and John were pages to Queen Anne, and may have left descendants in London.
The names Francis” and “Henry" often appear among the descendants of Sir Richard Gough of Edgbaston, a brother of Sir Henry, but, as said above, the name Perry Hall” points to Sir Henry.
Francis, the elder son of Thomas Gough of London, came to America in 1777 with his wife Rosa Hamlin (?)—possibly Henley. The correct name and parentage of Rosa are also desired. Dubuque, Iowa, U.S.A.

HALFHEIDE. Could any reader of the “ Miscellanea Genealogica” give me information concerning the Halfheide Family, or refer me to any sources from which I could obtain the same. The following notes might give some clue : Benjamin Vaughan married Hannah Halfheide. She was married January 17, 1735, and died November 16, 1787, aged 86, buried at Great Parndon, Essex. Edward Halfheide (father of above) and Sarah his wife also are buried there. Edward Halfheide died September 19, 1732.
According to Burke's • Armoury " the Halfheide arms were granted in 1560, and are “ Argent, two chevrons, conjoined in fesse, sable." Crest : A greyhound, sejant, or, collared azure, garnished and ringed of the first. I should be very grateful for any genealogical data concerning this family, and any connecting link between Edward Halfheide and he who had the above coat of arms.

The Journal of the Ex Libris Society. Vol. VI., October-December 1896. London : A. and C.
Black, Soho Square, W. The above Parts of this Journal still keep up the interest to members and collectors. The
Discipline” plate is given on a toned ground, which is an improvement we have adopted for years. The Blackstone Library plate is an excellent sample of a modern plate by Mr. Hopson of Connecticut, as are likewise three other examples by the same artist, and in the Part for December Mr. Weyer's plate of Major Back's is a masterpiece; there are also two other examples of his work, that of the Rev. W. F. Creeny and Mr. Thomas J. Scott's, both of which are very original, and the latter very effective for an Ex Libris member. This December number ends Vol. VI., and shews an improvement in plates even to the former volumes issued by the Society, and we wish every success for its continuance as an original magazine of the day.
The Complete Angler, by Izaak Walton. 1653. With a Preface by Richard Le Gallienne. Hereward ; the Saxon Patriot. A History of his Life and Character, with a record of his
Ancestors and Descendants, A.D. 445 to A.D. 1896. By Lieutenant-General HARWARD.
London : Elliot Stock, 62 Paternoster Row, E.C. This reprint of Izaak Walton's “Complete Angler" is a wonderful cheap book for 2s. 6d., and is well worthy of a place in every library, for it is a complete copy of the original, including the second page of the “ Angler's Song" being printed upside down, and all the batters on the type and misspelling are still apparent. When we know that the original has realized £310, this edition is worth securing.
The work by Lieutenant-General Harward is a painstaking vindication of the family descended from Hereward, and calls in question that of others who bave claimed a kinship with him. The author illustrates his contention with several pedigrees, and altogether excludes the House of Norfolk from that of direct kinship, thus bringing in Dugdale's authority against that of Burke, and mentions how Henry Howard Earl of Surrey was bebeaded by Henry VIII. for quartering the arms of Edward the Confessor. The author refers us on p. 61 to the Appendix, “Henry Howard, Earl of Surrey," but that heading we cannot trace ; nor is it in the Contents of the Appendix.
The work is written throughout with clearness and with authorities for statements made, and the author makes some severe remarks on Kingsley's “ Hereward the Wake.” He also allies John Harvard, of Harvard University, as in the direct line, and gives his descent from Robert Harvard, of Southwark, and states that be entered Emmanuel College, Cambridge, in 1627, and visited America in 1830, and having afterwards married a Sussex clergyman's daughter, he disposed of his estate in England on tbe death of his mother in 1637, and finally settled as a freeman in Massachusetts, where he died after founding the University.
The work is nicely got up in the “old style" as a small quarto, and reflects credit on all concerned, though we should have liked a fuller index.
