The Window Family.--On the north wall of the chancel of the Church of S. Nicholas, Gloucester, is a mural monument in memory of William Window, who died in the year 1669. I should be glad if any of your correspondents were able to tell me anything more of him or of his progenitors.

Window Family. Vol. V. p. 51.- Mr. Bushell will find a pedigree of this family in the Visitation of Gloucestershire 1682-3, edited by Messrs. Fenwick and Metcalfe, with additions by the late Sir Thomas Phillips. The additions bring the pedigree down to modern times. It begins with the William Window he mentions, to whom Sir Edward Walker granted arms 20 August, 1660. His third son, Henry Window, of Gloucester, married Sarah d. and coh. of Thomas Freame of North Lippiat, and had by her several children. The eldest son Freame Window married about 1705 Grace Hoskyns widow. I should be glad to know whether he had any children.

I have the following notes about persons of this name.

St. Michaels, Gloucester.
1602. Thomas Wyndowe and Ales Nowell married 13 Dec.

1677. Grace d. of Henry Window, gent. bap. 27 Feb.
1679. Freame s. of Henry Window, esquire, bap. 5 June.

Little Deane.
1716. Mr. George White, rector of Rendcombe and Dorcas Windoe, of Gloucester, married 15 March, by licence.

     There was a family of White connected with Little Deane about which I should like to know more. In the deed conveying the Manor of Little Deane to Maynard Colchester of Westbury, esquire, dated 1700, is mentioned "all the manor house wherein Mr. White lately dwelt." I think Mr. White was the parson. Perhaps Mr. Bushell may be able to give me some information?
