Henry Columbell

circa 1450 - after 1503

Father Henry Columbell
Mother unknown
Wife Beatrix Bradburne
Children Roger, Elizabeth

Henry was probably born around 1450 (1) in Darley, the son of Henry (2)(3)(7).

Practically nothing is known about his life, other than he married Beatrix Bradburne (2)(3)(4)(7), and they had at least one son Roger & at least one daughter Elizabeth (2)(3)(7).

He must have been a friend of Roger Vernon of Wirksworth (son of Sir William Vernon of Haddon Hall), as in February 1502, following Roger's adbuction of the wealthy widow Margaret Kebell, he took her to Henry's house where he rested/hid before continuing his escape (5). Its not clear what, if any, further part Henry played in this abduction/kidnap/rape/forced marriage, but the following year he was pardoned, along with a very long list of others, for aiding and abetting Roger Vernon (6).

Nothing more is known of him.

Brief details of his children:


  1. This is a very rough estimate based on his father's estimated birth, sometime before 1424, and his daughter Elizabeth's in the 1470s
  2. Pedigree of the Columbell family of Darley in the visitations of Derbyshire 1569 and 1611 (as published in "The Genealogist (New Series)" Volumes 7 & 8).
  3. Pedigree of the Columbell family of Darley published in Familae Minorium Gemtium, Volume 1 page 237, taken from a variety of sources.
  4. "Notes on the Churches of Derbyshire", by J Charles Cox, 1875, Volume 2, pages 412-413, within the chapter on Hulland church, contains the following:
    The following indenture, dated 1st of April, 1480, that is seventeen years after the foundation of the Bradbourne chantry at Hulland, contains so many particulars relative to it, that we make no excuse for reproducing it in extenso :-
    "Indenture between John Bradburne of Hoghe, Co. Derby, Esq. and Ann, his wife of the one part, and Sir Nicholas Longford, Knt., Henry Vernon, Esq., Nicholas Montgomery, Esq., John Cokayn, Esq., Richard Knyveton, Esq., John Fitzherbert, son and heir apparent of Rauff Fitz Herbert of Norbury, Rauff Okeover, son and heir apparent of Philip Okeover, John Kniveton of Underwoode, Humphrey Okeover, son and heir apparent of the said Rauff Okeover, Robert Bradshawe of Wyndeley, Sir Henry Prynce, parson of the Church of Norbury, and John Northampton, vicar of the Church of Assheburne, feoffees in certain lands &c. to the use of said John and Anne-Witnesseth that John and Anne at the desire &c. of Anne have caused Sir Nicholas &c. to be enfeoffed of a messuage,and 8 oxgangs of land in Lytteel Bradburne and of all other lands &c. which were some time of John de Pole of Hertynton, in the town &c. of Lytteel Bradburne and of [another messuage] and 2 oxgangs of land in Lytteel Bradburne and of certain lands in Kirk Ireton Newbigging and Boylston, Co.

    * Margery was the daughter of Sir John Bagot of Blithefield, Staffordshire
    + Isabel, the second daughter, subsequently married Hugh Willoughby, of Risley. Some pedigrees make out that another daughter, variously termed Isabel and Agnes, married John Okeover; if so he must have been the brother of Ralph Okeover, but we believe that is a confusion with the match of the eldest daughter Anne. There was, undoubtedly, a fourth daughter, Beatrice, not mentioned in this document, who married Henry Columbell, of Darley. See Harl MSS 1537 f4; Add MSS 28113; Pegge's Collections vol vi f114 etc

    2 Sir Henry Vernon was the eldest of seven sons of Sir William Vernon by Margaret Pype of Spernore (' Dict. Nat. Biog.', Vernon, Sir Richard, Treasurer of Calais and Constable of England, d. 1467). See Nichols, ' Hist. Leic' III. ii. 985. The family were perhaps originally Lancastrian in politics, for on Dec. 3, 1461, Sir William obtained a pardon of all offences committed by him before November 4 (Pat. B. Ed. 4, p. 81). He and his son Henry were summoned in 1463 by writ of Privy Seal to answer a complaint that they, at the head of a party of men, had broken open the closes and houses of John Skelley and Kichard Bawekewell, assaulted them, and carried off their goods, rents, corn, beasts and chattels (ib. p. 304). As they failed to obey the Privy Seal, a commission was issued to inquire into the complaint (ib.). Henry Vernon presumably made his peace with the King, for on October 18, 1470, he was nominated on a commission of oyer and terminer for the county of Derby (ib. p. 248) and on a commission of array for the same county on March 7, 1472 (ib. p. 349). He was nominated a commissioner to inquire into certain 'farms for lands granted & divers other sums of money & yearly profits' in Derbyshire on April 18, 1473 (ib. 408), and from 1469 to 1476 he was constantly upon the commission of the peace for the county (ib. 611). He was returned to Parliament as Knight of the Shire for Derby on January 8, 1478 (Members of Parliament, Parl. Pap. 1878, lxii. i. 363). He probably rallied to Henry 7, for, though his name does not appear at Bosworth, he was one of the leaders of the royal army which defeated John de la Pole, Earl of Lincoln, at Stoke on June 6, 1487 ('Henricus Vernonus ex Pek,' Polydore Vergil, xxvi. p. 728, ed. Leyden, 1651). On December 23, 1488, he was nominated a commissioner of musters for the expedition to Brittany (Campbell, 'Mat.' ii. 386). In 1489 he was dubbed a Knight of the Bath (W. C. Metcalfe, 'Book of Knights,' p. 21) on the occasion of the creation of Prince Arthur Prince of Wales. Thenceforth he was attached to the Prince and was a member of the Council of Wales. He was a commissioner to raise a benevolence towards the expenses of the war with France in 1491 (July 7) (Bym. ę Foed.' xii. 446). Polydore Vergil (lib. xxvi. p. 766) mentions him as among the knights who marched under Edward Stafford, Duke of Buckingham, against Perkin Warbeck's army at Taunton in September 1497. He was a signatory of the marriage articles between Prince Arthur and Katharine of Aragon in 1500, and high sheriff of Derbyshire in 1504 (S. Bayner, 'Haddon Hall' [1836], pp. 28, 29). On June 25, 21 Hen. 7 (1505), he was summoned before the Court of Exchequer for forcible entry into the lands of Ralph Pole in Spondon and Chadderden, Derbyshire, the issue of which process does not appear (MS. B. 0., Exch. K. B. Mem. Boll, T. T. 21 Hen. 7, m. xxiii). He was one of the trustees of Henry 7's will (Bot. Pari. vi. 522 a). He died April 3, 1515, and was buried at Tong, the castle of which he rebuilt in brick (J. Leland, 'Bin.' vii. 31, W. Camden, 'Britannia' [ed. B. Gough, 1806], iii. 29). He married the Lady Ann Talbot, daughter of John Talbot, second earl of Shrewsbury. She died May 17, 1494 (Nichols, 'Hist, of Leicestershire,' III. ii. 986*). The pedigree in B. Gough's 'Sepulchral Monuments,' ii. 264, makes Sir Henry Vernon an only son of William Vernon by Margaret daughter of Lord Ferrers, and grandson of Sir William Vernon and Margaret Pype. This the present case shows to be incorrect, and though the writer of the article in the 'Dict. Nat. Biog.' specifies Gough's as one of 'the most correct pedigrees,' it is certainly untrustworthy, for no 'Roger' Vernon occurs in it, and it is to be observed that in his account of the family the writer of the article does not follow it (vide supra). See J. Nichols, 'Hist, of Leicestershire,' III. ii. 985*.
    3 For 'felonous,' a form of felonious. It was felony by 3 Hen. 7, c. 2 (1487), 'An Acte agaynst taking awaye of women agaynst their willes.'
    4 Widow, as appears later, of Thomas Kebell, serjeant at law, who died in 1500. A brief abstract of his will is given in H. Nicolas, 'Testamenta Vetusta,' p. 440, from which it appears that he was twice married. He is described in the Registry of the Prerogative Court of Canterbury as of Humberston, Leicester. The name is there spelt 'Kebell,' but in Nicolas ' Kebill.' He was the son of Walter Kebell, whom W. Burton ('Description of Leicestershire' [1622], p. 139) calls 'that famous sergeant at law in the raigne of King Henry the Seauenth.' His name is first found in the Commission of the Peace for Leicestershire on October 24, 1474 (Pat. Rolls Ed. 4, p. 618), an office which from this time throughout the reigns of Edward 4 and Richard 3 he continuously held (Pat. Rolls, 1476-85, p. 563). A person of his name sat in Parliament for the borough of Lostwithiel in 1478 (Members of Parliament, p. 363). He appears to have been a Yorkist in politics, for on Dec. 10, 1483, after the abortive insurrection organised by Buckingham, he was nominated a commissioner to inquire into 'treasons, insurrections & rebellions' in Leicestershire (Pat. Rolls, Richard 3, p. 393). He was also a commissioner of subsidy for the county in the same year (ib. 396), and a commissioner of array for the county on May 1, 1484 (ib. 400), and on December 8 following, in anticipation of the invasion of Henry Tudor, earl of Richmond. He was put upon a commission to try coinage offences in the western and midland counties, among them Leicestershire, on May 25, 1485 (ib. p. 544). According to Burton, who was a member of the Inner Temple, Thomas Kebell 'was called serjeant on Nov. 20, 1486, and became king's serjeant in 1499 ' (see J. Nichols, 'Hist, of Leicestershire' [1800], III. i. 270). Foss ('Lives of the Judges,' v. 15) gives 1494 as the date of his call as serjeant. None of these dates can be correct, for on Jan. 30, 1487, in the grant of the custody of the lands in Leicestershire of the late John Kebeel during the minority of his son George, he is styled Thomas Kebeel, gentleman (Campbell, 'Mat.' ii. 113), while on Dec. 15, 1487, he is styled Thomas Kebeell, serjeant at law (ib. p. 214). The date of his call as serjeant may therefore have been Nov. 20, 1487. Further, on Nov. 10, 1488, he is styled 'one of the king's Serjeants at law,' being nominated to inquire into certain complaints of the king's officers and tenants of Tutbury, in the duchy of Lancaster, against the abbot of Burton (ib. p. 361). His appointment as King's Serjeant so soon after the accession of Henry 7 suggests that he was among those Yorkists who abandoned the cause of Richard 3. In 1489 he was put upon the commission of the peace by the new king (Campbell, 'Mat.' ii. 480). He was nominated by Henry 7 in 1496, in company with a number of personages of the highest distinction, a feoffee of certain lands to the use of the king's will (Rot. Pari. vi. 510 b). His wives' Christian names, as his will shews, were Ann and Margery. Nichols, who only knows their surnames, gives Bathorp as that of his first, Eyton of his second wife ('Leicestershire,' III. i. 273). He appears to have acquired a large fortune at the bar. Nichols (p. 270) enumerates his lands in Leicestershire, including six manors, from an inventory in the archiepiscopal registry. His widow was, therefore, a wealthy woman.
    5 A son of Sir Henry Vernon, as appears presently, not mentioned in the pedigrees. See n. 2, supra.
    6 Now in N.E. Staffordshire, less than a mile from the borders of Derbyshire. At this time the manor appears to have been held by the family of Bassett or Basset. S. Erdeswick, 'Survey of Staffordshire' (ed. T. Harwood, 1844), p. 486; cf. W. C. Metcalfe, 'Book of Knights,' p. 61, * Sir (? William) Basset of Blowre ' knighted 1529.
    7 Lord of the manor of Darley, about five miles S.E. of Bakewell, Derbyshire, and about twelve miles N.N.E. of Blore. D. and S. Lysons, 'Derbyshire' (1817), pp. cxxiii, 98 ; Harl. Soc. xv. 183; 'Genealogist' (1882), vi. 143.
    8 February 2, 1502.
    9 Sheyll. In 'Domesday' Scella; in 'Testa de Nevill' (1240) Scheles and Scheyl, but in other contemporary documents Sheyle and Seile. Now Seale. The manor of Church Sheyle or Nether Seile was held by the family of Pipe, until it passed into the Vernon family by the marriage of Sir William Vernon, of Haddon, with Margaret Pipe. But the Vernons had held land in the manor of Over Seale since the time of John, and acquired that manor in 1427. In 21 Ed. 4, and again in 2 Richard 3, Henry Vernon acquired other lands in Sheyle (Nichols, 'Leicestershire,' III. ii. 986*). Sir Henry's eldest son, Richard, succeeded to his lands in Sheyle (ib.).
    10 W. V. may be inferred to have been living here as early as 21 Ed. 4, when Henry Vernon, esquire, made him his attorney to take seisin from Thomas Bradshaw of Tyddeswall of lands infra dominicum de Sheyle and Sheyle Hide. Nichols, III. ii. 986*.

    14 Probably the second son of John Alsopp of Alsopp in the Dale, W. Derbyshire, about ten miles S.W. of Haddon. See the pedigree in S. Glover, 'Hist, of Derby' (edited by T. Noble, 1829), ii. 21.
    15 'hys fryndys' struck through.

    17 This is true. The Act 3 Hen. 7, c. 2, lays down 'that such takyng procuryng and abettyng to the same, and also receyvyng wetyngly the same Woman so taken ayenst her Will and knowyng the same, be felonye, and that such mysdoers takers andprocuratourstothe same, and receytours knowyng the said offence, in forme aforseid be hensforth reputed and juged as principall felons.'
