To the Editor of the North fJ-alel Gazelle. SIR, In the early part of my life I was well acquainted with the late W. Dimmock, Esqv of Penley, in Flintshire, who has ofren signified to me, that he was descended from the Diinmocks who held the office of the Champion of England. I have' enclosed a Copy of a warrant of Henry VI. to the keeper of the wardrobe, for equipping a horse for Sir Philip Dimmock, Champion, at the ensuing coronation," anno 1430, taken from a MS. in the British Museum. Overton. ANTIQUARJUS. Henry, &c. to our beloved clerk Robert Rolleston, keeper of our great wardrobe, greeting. Whereas our beloved Esquire Phi- lip Dymmock, has certified to us how his an- cestors, within memory, have been accustom ed to perform certain solemnities and services at the coronation of our noble progenitors, kings of England, heretofore that is to say, to be armed on the.day of our coronation, and mounted on a charger, and beside, to do and exercise all that appertains to Ihe said servi- ce?; taking the accustomed fees for each. We therefore, with the advice and assent of our counce!, will and command you, that against the day of our coronation, you prepare trap- pings and all other things in such case usual, and deliver them to the said Philip, in the manner deliveries have bee 'i heretofore made by the keepers of the wardrobe of our said progenitors to his ancestors, and we willlhat these our letters he your warrant, and that due attention he paid to them.
