Description

Excerpt from The Visitation of the County Palatine of Lancaster, Made in the Year 1664-5, by Sir William Dugdale, Knight, Norroy, Afterwards Garter, King of Arms, Vol. 3 James Dugdale of Clitheroe, the grandfather of sir William, is styled by Anthony 21 Wood a gentleman 8 and the grandson, with pardonable vanity, has described him as descended ex antiqua ejusdem cognom. Familia. He is also said to have borne coat armour, but by what right is not named. It was however so similar to the heraldic bearing of a family of the name of Uvedale that Wood, with marvellous puerility, conjectured that Dug dale was a corruption of De Uvedale; and he also states that sir William Dugdale seemed to be of the same Opinion, although he paid little regard to his own family and knew nothing of his ancestors,9 which may be fairly assumed to be a strong proof of their obscurity. He was however wishful to be thought a member of an ancient house, of which, unfortunately, there are no records.
