| John Billingham, of Crook Hall, in the suburbs of Durham, married first. Alice, daughter of Ralph Claxton, of Wynyard, Esq., and secondly, Elizabeth, daughter of Roger Swinburne, of Edlingham, Esq, and widow of John Hall, of Conset. The Billinghams of Crook Hall, were descended from John the Cow. hird, of Billingham, who had the luck to marry a sister of Richard Kellaw, Bishop of Durham, in the time of Edward II. From this period the family assumed the local name of Billingham, and settled at Crook Hall, where, until the year 1657, they resided, and ranked among the principal gentry of the county.

1 The Hall exists in its original extent, but its tables and dressers and carpet clothes and cushions and green hangings, and its spear, staff, and black bill are matters of history. It is used as a wash-house and lumber-room. Its roof and windows prove it to be not later than the reign of Edward III. The shape of the latter has given to it the name of the Chapel, by which alone it is now designated.

This Inventory is particularly valuable for the light which it throws upon the domestic economy of a person of this rank at the period. The deceased farmed a portion of his own land. He grew his own corn, and he heckled, or combed, and then spun his own flax and wool; he killed his own beef, and there are numerous other curious inferences to be drawn from this document.
