Camden, in his Britannia, says, “Barrington Hall, (heretofore) the seat of that eminent family of the Barringtons, who in the time of King STEPHEN were greatly enriched with the estate of the Lord Montfitchet; and in the memory of our fathers a match with the daughter and co-heir of Henry Pole, Lord Montacute, son and heir to Margaret, Countess of Salisbury, rendered them more illustrious, by an alliance with the royal blood.” Le Neve (Norroy king-of-arms) deduces the lineage of the Barringtons from BARENToNE, a Saxon, who had the custody of the forest of Hatfield-Regis, temp. Willian the Conqueror, and whose son, Ersrachius DE BARENToNA, servant to King HENRY 1. obtained grants of land from that monarch, with the custody of the forest.

Sir John, however, refused to attend any of its meetings, and peremptorily declined signing the warrant for King CHARLEs's execution. He lived in retirement after the Restoration. Sir John m.
