The Beckwiths

Transcriber’s Notes:

Posting this copy of “The Beckwiths”, a genealogical book from 1891 by Paul Beckwith. The book documents a detailed genealogical record of descendants of the Beckwith (originally “de Malebisse”) male lineage from England to America.

I would note that like any large genealogical projects there is the high likelihood of inaccuracies in some parts of the book. However, after carefully reviewing the content, it is my belief that Paul’s intention was sincere and the book is an accurate document of what he believed to be true.

The main doubt I have is with respect to the assertion that the progenitor of the lineage, Hugh de Malebisse, who was alive at the time of the Domesday book in the year 1066. While it seems likely this person existing and was indeed the likely progenitor, the author implies that de Malebisse granted lands as part of the invasion of England by William the Conqueror. To date, I have found no evidence of that, so I would tend to believe that its possible de Malebisse was simply a land owner in York for any number of possible reasons.

Additionally I have personally found no evidence of de Malebisse / Malbis / Maltby (or similar) in the archive of the Domesday Book itself, however this could be due to my lack of ability to read ancient English text 🙂 I have however seen reference to the de Malebisse lineage an several other books on English lineages.

The text below is transcribed from the online Yale archive of the book. Originally converted via OCR and scrubbed for OCR errors and formatting by me. This book, being published over 96 years ago, is public domain, meaning the material is free to copy and use with out restriction.

Note: the text below is incomplete – I am still working on the Appendix section which includes the “Roll of Honor”, passages from source material and an Index. Once complete I plan to make this available in e-reader format for kindle etc, for easier consumption.

Title Pages







There are but two biographers who can tell the story of a man’s life. One, the person himself, the other, the Recording Angel. The autobiographer cannot be trusted to tell all the truth, though he may tell nothing but the truth, and the Recording Angel never allows his book to leave his own hands.








In thanking those who have so kindly responded to my letters of inquiry, I would say that I shall continue the “History of the American Beckwiths,” and to that end request that I may be informed of all genealogical events that may take place in your families. Also I request biographical sketches of yourselves, your parents, grandparents, etc.

The Beckwiths.




“Sir Hugh de Malebisse, held lands, time of William the Conqueror,” is all that Domesday Book tells us of this valiant old Norman knight, for valiant he must have been, or few broad acres would he have possessed in those days, when men encased themselves in iron shells, and struck hard with sword, lance and club. When arms and armor hung conveniently near, for outside one’s own castle gate there generally was a chance for blows; and if we would know the men of those days we must look for them under helmet and shield, founders of a feudalism felt even unto our day. Their lands, acquired at the sword’s point, were held only as a price of valor in the service of their sovereign.

At the time of the invasion England, the Normans had lost all traces in language and manners of their northern or Danish origin, and though but little love existed between them and their French neighbors, still it was in Normandy that the French language had acquired its greatest polish and elegance. As the more essential attributes of body and mind are not so easily shaken off as language and conventional manners, the Normans were distinguished from the other natives of France by their stature, fair complexion, abstemiousness and moral qualities; we can, therefore, well imagine Sir Hugh, tall of stature and fair of complexion, a type that distinguishes so many of his descendants even unto our day, as he stood in 1066 upon the shores of England, eight hundred and twenty-four years ago, and with his warrior companions, vowed by the aid of Madame St. Mary (the patroness of Norman chivalry) to carve with his good sword an Earldom or a narrow resting place, which even England could not refuse her valiant invaders.

Toward the end of the eleventh century, wild times as they were, a glimpse of an approaching civilization was seen in the erection by the nobles of frowning castles and costly abbeys. William the Conqueror, who with a single frown made England tremble, rebuilt at his own expense, the superb Abbey of Jumieges, where the Cleric found learning and the poor man bread, on condition that the church should be under the invocation of the Mother of God. He assisted in person, with the Duchess Matilda, all his great Norman Barons and their retinues, at the dedication July 1st, 1068, and who knows but that Sir Hugh may have been a spectator, and may have accompanied the Conquer some years later when he crossed the Sea to Normandy, in order to be present at the dedication of the Church of “Our Lady of Bayeau.” It was at this time, probably, that the Duchess Matilda paid homage to Saint Mary of Bayeau, by presenting that celebrated tapestry in which her patient needle had invoked the great epoch of the conquest of England. This drapery, ”embroidered with figures and inscription,” was hung the whole length “of the nave of the church,” says an inventory of the treasures of our Lady of Bayeau, drawn up in 1476. The tapestry of Bayeau enables us to see in battle and in camp these rough and rugged warriors, pioneers of a dawning civilization.

The work, even of the needle, was rude in those days, still we can see there the men who fought at Hastings, and here we find Sir Hugh, in a “leather coat of tough Bull hide,” covered with metal rings, sewn upon it, touching at their circumference, not interlaced, as in chain mail, for chain mail was as yet unknown. The coat and breeches one piece with a flap at the breast to admit the wearer, a casque of steel, gilded and painted, shoes and gloves of leather, legs protected by sheepskins fastened with leather straps, armed with an embossed shield bound with iron and covered with leather, upon which the arms were painted, a long spear and broad-bladed sword, and so appeared Sir Hugh, and his warrior companions.

Sir Hugh de Malebisse had three sons. Richard, the eldest, was witness to the charter of Albert de Rainville. Galfred, the youngest, willed all his lands to God, Madame St. Mary and the Monastery of Newbo, in 1142, and became the first Prior. Sir Hugh, the second son, married twice; through his second marriage he became Lord of Kynveton; his first wife, Emma, daughter of William de Percy, one of the great and powerful Norman barons (ancestor of Harry Hotspur). Sir Hugh lived in the reign of King Stephen, 1138, and had issue, four sons and one daughter, as follows: Hugo, Richard, Sir William, Sir Simon and Matilda. Hugo, the eldest, was Chief Justice of County York, and married twice; his second wife was Lady Beatrice, Lady of the Manor of Wykes, County Cambridge; she founded the Priory of Spinney, during the reign of Henry the Third, and died without issue, his lands passing to his brother, Richard de Malebisse, Lord of Ancaster, Knyveton and other estates. He lived during the time of Richard, the Lion Hearted, and possibly accompanied him to the Holy Land. He was Chief Forester of Galles, Derwent and Wonerdale; Chief Justice of County York during the fourth year of the reign of King John. In the second year of the reign of Richard the First, he paid 20 pounds to be Forester, as he had been in the time of King Henry. He paid, first year of King John, 5 pounds for the farm of Gueltres, and founded in 1198 the Monastery of Newbo, in Lincolnshire, of the Order of Praemonstatensis, and “gave to God, Madame St. Mary and the Abbey of Newbo,” of which his uncle Galfred was Prior, all his lands in the village of Newbo, with the Churches of Ancaster and Knyveton, and, also, other lands. He had three sons. Robertus, the eldest, whose line became extinct in the second generation; Richard, Lord of Beningworth, the youngest, died without issue; John, the second son, confirmed the grants his father, Richard, had received from Morton Grange to the Abbey of Newbo in the fourteenth year of the reign of King John.

John de Malebisse founded the de Malebisse branch of our family, which became extinct in the eleventh generation, on the marriage of Elizabeth de Malebisse to Adam Beckwith, Lord of Clint, in 1379.

The de Malebisse family, if we are to judge from munificent gifts to abbeys and monasteries, were wealthy and prominent, connected by marriage with many of the noble families of England. Many were High Sheriffs and Chief Justices, in those days offices of high importance, filled only by the more prominent nobles of the county. They were Lords of several manors or estates.

Sir Walter de Malebisse mortgaged his Manor of Scalton Castle to William Fairfax, on going to the Holy Land, on a pilgrimage to the Holy Sepulchre, as was the habit of the nobles of those days, in fulfillment of certain vows; he made Richard Fairfax, son of William, his heir in case he did not return; this Richard Fairfax, son of William, married the daughter of Sir Thomas de Malebisse, brother of Sir Walter, and, as Richard Fairfax afterward appeared on the records of Yorkshire as seized of the lands and Castle of Scalton, it is to be presumed that Sir Walter never returned from his pious pilgrimage.

Sir Simon de Malebisse, Lord of Cowton in Craven, fourth son of Sir Hugo de Malebisse, married the daughter of John Lord de Methly. It was his son, Sir Hercules de Malebisse, who, in 1226, married Lady Dame Beckwdth Bruce, daughter of Sir William Bruce, Lord of Uglebarby, which lordship and other lands he had inherited from his ancestor, Sir Robert Bruce, of Skelton Castle, the progenitor of the Royal Bruces of Scotland. It is from this marriage that we derive our name. Lady Beckwith Bruce possessed, by inheritance, an estate or manor of land called “Beckwith,” in the old Anglo-Saxon “Beckworth,” from ”Beck” a brook and “Worth” an estate. With a view, evidently, to the perpetuation of the name, required her husband, by a marriage contract dated 1226, to assume the name of Beckwith.

Sir Hercules de Malebisse was Lord of Cowton in Craven, inherited from his great-grandfather, Sir Hugh the Norman, Lord of Clint, and by his marriage with Lady Beckwith Bruce, Lord of Uglebarby, and of the Manors of Beckwith and Beckwithshaw. He was succeeded by his son, Sir Hercules de Beckwith de Clint, who married the daughter of Sir John Ferrars, of Tamworth Castle, who by marriage into the House of Marmion inherited by tenure of the Castle of Tamworth the high office of Champion of England.

Hamon Beckwith, grandson of Sir Hercules, was seized of the Lordships of Clint and Uglebarby, and the Manors of Beckwith and Beckwithshaw, took upon himself the coat of arms of John Lord de Malebisse, in 1339, in proof of descent, presented to the Earl Marshall of England the marriage contract of his great-grandfather, Sir Hercules de Malebisse to the Lady Beckwith Bruce. The decision of the Earl Marshall, dated 1339, is still to be seen (1868) in the Herald’s Office. The marriage contract reads as follows:

“Be it known to all Nobles, where this present writing shall come, be seen, or heard; whereas Hamon Beckwith, son and heir of Nicholas Beckwith, was named by the Earl Marshall of England, by a process that was datied from the aforesaid Marshals Manor of Reayssing Castle, in the Connty of Norfolk, Jan. 18th, in the tenth year of our Sovereign Lord, the King, in the year of our Lord, 1339. That the said Hamon Beckwith, should usurp and take unto him a coat of arms, which was appertaining unto John Lord de Malebisse, for which better use by virtue of this process, we charge you, that you will appear at the new Mansion House of Saymore, before us and bring with you all such evidence and records of arms, that we may allow, grant, and set our hands to your teste and posterity forever, and also that your appearence will be the 14th day of October, next coming, in the aforesaid year above written. And the said Orator did appear at the said day appointed, and did bring with him such evidence, whereof one piece dated from the 10th year of Henry the 3rd., which was in the year of our Lord 1226, from one Hercules de Malbie, the son of Simon de Malbie, Knight, who married the Lady Dame Beckwith Bruce, one of the daughters of Sir William Bruce, Lord of Uglebarby, and certain other lands in Pickering, that the said Hercules de Malbie, should change his name, or else his coat, and his posterity forever; and so it was what the said Hercules de Malbie changed his name from de Malbie to Beckwith, and did hold his coat, whereof I the said Earl Marshall Peter Mawlam, Lord od de Luke, Lord Chamberlain to our Sovereing Lord, King Edward 3rd, and Henry Lord Percy, Sir Robert Boynton, Knt., and Sir William Acton, did see and allow it in proof, and the said coat to be his own lineally descended, whereof we have our hands and seals, to the aforesaid teste, the day and year above written, in the presence of many.”

Sir Hamon Beckwith had numerous issue, three sons and four daughters. William, his heir, was seized of the Manors of Beckwith and Beckwithshaw, in the 38th year of the reign of King Edward the 3d, and married the daughter of Sir Girard Urfleet, Knight of Wighill, in Co. York, who commanded a Knight’s retinue at the battle of Agincourt in France. Of Thomas, the second son, nothing is now known; probably he died young. John, the fourth son of Hamon, purchased lands in Scough; his line became extinct in the next generation, on the marriage of his daughter Ann to George Rowdon, Esq., of Rowdon and other fair possessions. John Beckwith was a stout man-at-arms, and was with King Henry in his French wars; he was at the siege of Harfleur and at the battle of Agincourt, his name with those of other gentlemen, in the list of men-at-arms under Sir Girard Urfleet, at the battle of Agincourt. From the following document, this worthy scion of our family received 24 cents a day for his military services: “The awards to be made by King Henry, to those who are to accompany him into France, to serve one year, and that they should receive, every Duke 13sh. 4d., every Earl 6sh., 8d.; every Baron 4sh.; every Knight 3sh, a day if the voyage extended into France, every Esquire and man-at-arms (gentlemen who served under the orders of a Knight), was to receive for his wages, 12 pence (24 cents), and every archer 6 pence a day, and for every thirty men-at-arms, a reward of one hundred marks a quarter, and if the voyage extended to Guienne, each Duke, Earl and Baron, and Knight, was to receive as above, every man-at-arms forty marks, every archer twenty marks.” Doubtless this doughty warrior fought noble, and with the rest of the English army, before the battle of Agincourt, kneeling, asked the blessing of the Almighty on their arms, and stooping placed in their mouths a morsel of earth, in remembrance, it is conjectured, of their mortality, as a contemporary has it.

William Beckwith was succeeded by his son Thomas of Clint, in the fourth year of the reign of Richard the Second; he held the Manors of Magna Otringer and Huxley near Thursk, and married the daughter of John Sawley of Saxton. Thomas Beckwith was succeeded by his son Adam Beckwith of Clint, who married Elizabeth de Malebisse, and thus reunited the two branches of the Malebisse family, after a separation of over three hundred years. Sir William, the eldest son of Adam Beckwith, married a daughter of Sir John Baskerville, and was succeeded by his son Thomas Beckwith of Clint, who by marriage with the daughter and co-heiress of Wm. Haslerton, became Lord of the Manors of Filey, Muston and Thorp, which his wife had inherited from Havisia, the daughter and co-heiress of Ralph de Neville. Thomas Beckwith of Clint had five sons; Thomas, the eldest, and Adam, the fourth, died without issue. Sir William, Knight, of Clint, the second son, married twice; by his first wife, daughter of Sir William Plumpton of Plumpton, had issue, but his line became extinct in the next generation. Robert Beckwith, the fifth son. married the daughter of Lowenthorp of Lowenthorp, and was the founder of the greater portion of the Beckwith family in England. Many of his descendants have filled important public offices, and whose names figure prominently in the military, judicial and civil history of England; space will not allow a more extended reference to these branches of our family, other than to refer to the body of this work.

John Beckwith, third son of Thomas of Clint, married the daughter of Thomas Radcliff of Mulgrave, and was succeeded by his only son, Robert Beckwith of Broxholme, in the 8th year of the reign of Edward 4th. He, in his turn, was succeeded by an only son, John, who inherited the Manors of Clint and Thorp, and lived in the 8th year of the reign of King Edward the 4th; he left an only son, Robert Beckwith of Clint and Thorp, whose will was dated Oct. 16th, 1536. and proved Mch. 24th, 1537; he married Jennet and had issue. Robert, the eldest son, died young; Marmaduke of Dacre and Clint, the second son, sold the Manor of Clint that had been in the family since 1226, and bought the Manors of Featherstone and Acton, Yorkshire; he married twice; by his first wife, Ann, daughter of Dynley of Bramhope, had eleven children; Thomas, the eldest, inherited Acton and married Frances, daughter and heiress of William Frost of Acton; he had three sons, Thomas, the eldest, of Acton, to whom we will presently return; William, the second son, was baptized at Featherstone Castle in 1571, emigrated to America in 1607, landing at Jamestown, Va., with Captain John Smith from the ship “Phœnix;” he married in 1616, and had but the one son (and a daughter), Henry who was born about 1619, and who settled in Dorchester Co., Maryland, there founded a family, many of whose members have been prominent in the political, civil and military history of that county, and whose descendants are still living on the old homestead.

To return to Thomas Beckwith of Acton (son of Thomas), he married Barbara, daughter of John Millburn of Hinderskelf, Co. York; he had numerous issue; of Thomas his eldest son, his line became extinct in the second generation; of the next five children nothing is now known; his seventh son, George Beckwith, was baptized at Featherstone Mch. 29th, 1610, and emigrated to Maryland in the year 1648, in company with Secretary John Hatton and others. He landed at St. Marys. George Beckwith represented in the line of primogeniture the Beckwith family, as far as known, and the author of this work, in the line of primogeniture, is his last male descendent.

We must now return to Marmaduke Beckwith of Clint and Dacre, and find mention of Mathew Beckwith, who is possibly the Mathew Beckwith who is first recorded at Saybrook Point, Conn., in 1635, and the ancestor of by far the largest, numerically, of the American Beckwiths and whose descendants are to be found in every State of the Union, Canada and the Sandwich Islands.

We will return once more to Marmaduke Beckwith of Clint and Dacre, whose third son, Roger Beckwith of Northcot and Aldborough, married twice; by his second wife, Susannah, daughter of Brackenbury of Tellahay, he was succeeded by his son, Author Beckwith of Aldborough, a captain in the Parliamentary Army, killed 1642 in battle; his eldest son, Roger Beckwith, was knighted and created a Baronet of England by Charles the 2d in 1681. He married twice, and died in 1700; by his second wife Elizabeth, the daughter of Edward Jennings, he had two sons; the second son, Marmaduke, emigrated to Virginia about the time of his father’s death, and eventually succeeded to the title; he was then living in Virginia.
