THE TEMPESTS OF HOLMSIDE,
CO. DURHAM.

In vol xiii. of The Catholic Record Society's Publications at p. 117 (note 383) I fell into some error about this family. Dodd ('Church History,' ii., 111) seems also to have fallen into a similar confusion. Perhaps I may be allowed to rectify it here.

(a) Robert Tempest, of Holmside, High Sheriff of Durham in 1561, married Margaret, daughter of Thomas Lesthall, of Lachford, Oxfordshire; by whom he had five sons, Michael, George, Robert, William and Thomas. He and his eldest son Michael were attainted in 1569 for having taken part in the Northern Rebellion. He was specially named by Thomas, Earl of Sussex, in a proclamation dated Nov. 19, 1569. On the failure of the Rebellion he crossed the

(b) Robert Tempest, the third son of the above-mentioned Robert took the law as his profession, as his father, and as his brother Michael had done, and going abroad before the Rebellion took the degree of J.U.L. at some foreign university, probably_either Louvain or Paris. He arrived at the English College at Rheims Dec. 24, 1583 and was ordained deacon by Cardinal de Guise (afterwards known as the Cardinal of Lorraine) in the chapel of St Cross in the Cathedral Church of Rheims, Mar. 31, 1584, and left for Rome, being then a priest, Jan. 17, 1585. In 1587 he was living in Paris. He returned to Rheims from Paris

Sept. 18, 1590 but left almost at once for
Paris returning again to Rheims, Nov. 8,
1590, and was appointed procurator to
Dr. Worthington, the head of the College in
