SIR ANTHONY FITZHERBERT, KNIGHT.

A sketch of whose life we submit in the present number to the perusal of our readers, was descended of an ancient family resident at Norbury, in Derbyshire, which had for several centuries possessed considerable property in that county, for even so early as in the year 1125, William Fitzherbert, a lineal progenitor of Sir Anthony, was seized of the manor of Norbury,' which he had received from the Prior and Convent of Tulbury. -Sir Antony was the youngest son of Ralph Fitzherbert, Esq. and was taught from his earliest years to look for advancement in the profession of the law. He studied at Oxford, and was afterwards removed to one of the Inns of Court in London: there he obtained considerable reputation, for profound piety, solidity of judgement, and a complete knowledge of the law. On the eighteenth of November, 1511, he was appointed Sargeant at law, and in the course of a few years, namely in 1516, he obtained the honour of knighthood: he was appointed on the twenty fourth of November, 1517, King's Sargeant, which office he held until Easter Term in 1523, when he was nominated one of the Justices of the Court of Common Pleas. "In which place," says Wood "carrying himself with great prudence, justice, and knowledge, he became at length the Oracle of the law, and was admired by all for his profoundity in it." He strongly opposed the ambitious views of Cardinal Wolsey,

B

and endeavoured to the utmost of his power to prevent that haughty favorite from suppressing the forty small convents, for which he had obtained the sanction of the Court of Rome; nevertheless, Wolsey accomplished his object, and it has been remarked by the protestant authors, Stow, Spelman and others, that every one engaged in the destruction of these religious establishments, met with severe temporal misfortunes; nor was the Pope himself exempted from this calamity. Numerous learned works have been attributed to the pen of Sir Anthony, among these are many different elaborate treatises upon the law, which have been honourably quoted by several succeeding judges, and Lord Coke himself speaks of them in strong terms of commendation. There were also some scientific productions; but his work upon husbandry, was at the period of its publication universally admired. He appears always to have enjoyed the character of a profound lawyer, and of a good christian and the author of the Biographia Britanica, relates of him" that when he came to lie upon his death bed, foreseeing mischances that were likely to happen in the church as well as in the state, he pressed his children in very strong terms to promise him solemnly neither to aceept grants, nor to make purchases of abbey lands; which it is said they did, and adhered constantly to that promise, though much to their loss." As during the whole course of his life he had constantly meditated upon his last end, so was his death like to the death of the just, and he piously resigned his soul into the hands of his Redeemer, at a very advanced age, leaving a numerous family to regret his loss. He was interred in the parish church of Norbury, and the following epitaph is still to be seen upon a blue marble slab.
