This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1887 edition. Excerpt: ... Additional Notes. I. On the Pedigree of the Colets of Wendovtr. (Page 3, n.) AMONG the Additional MSS. in the British Museum is one (No. 27984) which formerly belonged to Henry St. George. It is a small quarto volume of ninety-four leaves, filled with genealogical memoranda. On leaf 12 (= 19) is a pedigree of the Colletts of Wendover, with this note attached: "The man that brought me this pedygre toulde me that this descent hath bene proued by very old mens oathes in the guyld Hall in London and remaineth their vpon record, but I did not see any proofe for it, and therfore did not sett my hand vnto it." Henry St. George was Richmond Herald, and was engaged (as Mr. John Watney informs me) about the beginning of the seventeenth century in compiling a book of arms of distinguished members of the Mercers Company. This might help to account for the Colet pedigree being brought to him. Though he cautiously avoided accepting it as proved, there is nothing, so far as I can see, to discredit it. If it be compared with the more fragmentary stem given by Dr. Knight (Introd., p. xx.) on the authority of old family papers, it will be found to fit in not unsatisfactorily. It is here reproduced, with some additions. That the reader may not be misled, I have printed the pedigree as it stands in H. St. George's MS. in common type, with spelling of names unaltered. The links supplied from Knight and other sources are in italics. It will be observed that in the former a blank is left for the name of Robert Collett's third son. The first, second, and fourth are both named and numbered, while Sir Henry Colet is named, but not numbered. The presumption that John was the third, and Sir Henry the fifth, is strengthened by the respective dates of their deaths....
