BARONETCY ROMANCE. By a decision in the Law Courts on Monday, I the Rev. John Francis Twiscl-en, of Braclbourue Hall, Mailing, Kent, becomes entitled to ft baronetcy. The point at issue was whether Lieutenant- William Twisden, an ancestor of Mr. Twisden* was lawfully married in 1762 to Marv Kirk. Most of the evidence consisted of old love iettera and other documents, which had bsen carefully preserved for generations, for legal record of the marriage could be discovered. Mr. Justice Bargrave Deane ""t in his letters Lieutenant Twisde i Kirk ao his wife, and she had him as. her husband. Short of a n certificate, there could be no stronger < i.hn': tne two were married than the evidc L i 1 a 1 been produced. He held that the had been established. There was no doubt that the lieutenant's family prided itself on its p~ • and took great umbrage at his connect i' e daugh- ter of a petty officer. Yet t i i wrote' openly and bravely or the i a witn whom h6 had lived fo>* v The new laT.'ex was *cch V d a< Trinity College, Cambridge, and was wrangler in 1848. He was formerly pi of mathe- matics at Sandhurst, and held curacy of Minley, Hampshire, from i to 1:(;8. No property is involved in the decision. L:r.
