NOTES TO PEDIGREES OF PINCKE OF BIGHTON, ETC. Note 1. It has not been found possible to trace these lines out very satisfactorily. Both were certainly closely related to Pincke of Kempshott, but in each case the precise connecting link is wanting.

Note 2. William Pincke, M.Ă. He was the Author of 'Trial of a Christian's Sincere Love to Christ,' etc. Some particulars of him will be found in Wood's

Ath. Oxon.,' i., 463, and in the ‘Dict. Nat. Biog. A brass to his memory and that of his brother John is still to be seen in North Waltham Church, with the inscription in Latin, of which the following is a translation :-“Here rest two brothers, born from the honorable and ancient family of Pinck, of whom the elder William was Master of Arts, Theological Associate of Magdalen College, Oxford, teacher of Philosophy both of Sciences and Languages. He became illustrious both for his learning and remarkable piety. He died Anno Domini 14 Dec. 1628 in the 27th year of his age. But the younger of them, John, a modest and upright youth, died Anno Domini 1 March 1629 in his 23rd year.”

Note 3. That there should have been four daughters all bearing the same Christian name seems unlikely. It is possible that there may have been two John Pinckes at Bighton, the fathers to these ladies and their brothers, but, if so, the Parish Register does not enable us to distinguish. The burial of none of them is recorded.

Note 4. John Pinck of West Stratton. By his will, dated 14 January 1642, gave £200, and directed that his Executors should purchase either lands or tenements of the clear annual value of £10 10s., or else a rent-charge of that amount, to be given to the poor of the several parishes of Milcheldever, Medstead, Bighton, Bishop Salton, oid Alresford, Overton, New Alresford, St. John-in-the-Soke, St. Peter Cheesehill, and St. Bartholomew Hyde, the last three (all in the City of Winchester) were to receive the sum of £2 annually. This Charity is still paid, being known as “ Pink's Gift."

NOTES TO PEDIGREE OF PINCKE OF SHARSTED. Note 1. For a pedigree of Alured of the Charterhouse, York, vide the Yorkshire Genealogist,' vol. i., pp. 1-11. The Alureds quartered the Arms of Twyer, and were entitled to quarterings from several other Yorkshire families. Portraits of the Regicide and his wife are said to exist at Sharsted Court.

Note 2. The manor of Sharsted or Sahersted in early times was possessed by a family that took their name from it. In the reign of Edward III. it passed from the Sharsteds by marriage to one John de Bourne, in whose posterity it continued until the reign of Charles I., when James Bourne, Esq., sold it to Abraham Delaune of London. On the death of William Delaune, Esq., in 1739, s.p., the manor devolved by an intail in his will upon his nephew Gideon Thornicroft, Esq., who, dying s.p. in 1742, devised it to his mother, and she at her decease in 1744 gave it to her maiden daughters Dorcas and Anne. In 1759 Dorcas Thornicroft devised her moiety to her sister Anne for her life, remainder intail to her nephew Alured Pincke. Anne Thornicroft, becoming thus the sole possessor of the manor, survived until 1791, when the entirety came to Alured Pincke.

Note 3. With the death of Alured Pincke in 1822 the whole of the male descendants of Henry Pincke, who purchased the manor of Kempshott temp. Elizabeth, would seem to have failed. Having survived his own sons and also his nephew Alured H. Shove, Mr. Pincke, it is said, did not know of any near relatives. His next of kin would certainly bave to be sought for among the descendants of his aunts, while for his nearest relations in the male line it would probably have been necessary to go back to the descendants of Robert Pincke of Candover, brother to the first Henry of Kempshott.

Note 4. The Author of Greenwood's History of Kent,' p. 265, mentions with some degree of pride the very polite interview with which he was honoured by this venerable lady when in her 98th year. Upon the death of this aged widow in 1833 the manor of Sharsted passed by bequest to her brother's grandson, the late Edmund Barrell Faunce, Esq. (who died in 1861), and is now held by his son Chapman Delaune Faunce-Delaune, Esq., which last name he assumed in 1864 in compliance with the will of Alured Pincke. (Vide Burke's 'Landed Gentry.')
