Here the ancient family of the Babthorpes flourished for many centuries; and intermarried with the best families in this county. By Kirkby's inquest, here was one caracute of land held by Ralph Babthorpe, of the Bishop of Durham, by Knight's service; where 12 caracutes made a Knight's fee. Sir Wm. Babthorpe, in the reign of James I. sold this estate to Richard Bowes, Esq. -Burton's Monast. A father and a son, both of this family, were slain in the battle of St Albans, fighting for Henry VI. and lie buried there with this epitaph:-


Cum patre Radulpho Babthorpe jacet ecee Radulphus
Filius, hoc duro marmore pressus humo:
Henrici Sexti dapifer, pater armiger ejus;
Mors satis id docuit, tidus uterque fuit.

The two Ralph Babthorps, father and his son,
Together lie interr'd beneath this stone.
One Squire, one Sew'r, to our Sixth Henry was;
Both died i' th' field, both in their master's cause.
Camden.
