At Barnards "Survey" August 1577, Henry Tempest was found


to hold in right of his wife land in Hundsworth and Tong, formerly held by Richard Tong of the Queen, as of the Duchy of Lancaster, and he was on the Jury at Bradford for this Survey (Dodsworth MSS, vol. 34, fols. 16d & 13d). With his wife and son, he levied several fines of land in Tong, 1575, 1577, 1578 (Yorks Feet of Fines, vol. 2, pp.78, 101, 104, 127, & 166).

In 1585, he entered his pedigree at Glover's Visitation of Yorks, his arms allowed as, quarterly. 1st Arg: a bend between 6 martlets sab: Tempest. 2 Ermine, 5 fusils in fess gu: Hebden. 3 Argt a chevron between 3 martlets gu: Waddington. 4 Sab. an escutcheon ermine within an orle of 8 martlets argt.

Early in 1581, he and his son Richard were sued by John Batte, gentle­man to warrant to him the parcel of land called Raikes and the tenement called Rycroft in Tong, which they and Ellen Tem­pest had granted him 26 September 1579 (Comm.

She must have been a babe at that date, as she was declared 28 years old at the Inq: p.m. of her father, Christopher Mir­feld, 9 September 1555 (Chanc. Inq: p.m. 2 & 3 Philip & Mary, No. 4). Disputes arose after Sir Richard Tempest's death as to her dower.

In 1538, Peter and Christopher Mirfeld reciting the settle­ment of 20 March 1526-7, pleaded that, after Sir Richard's death (30 August 1537) Dame Rosamund his executrix had sued execution on all their manors &c. and left them no means of living. They also quote the marriage settlement between Chris­topher Mirfeld and Elizabeth daughter of Arthur Pylkyngton Esqr, which they declare Dame Rosamund detains. By her reply before Commissioners, 30 April 1541, she denied having any of their charters and states that Sir Richard paid "great sommes of money" for the marriage, which had taken place (Early Chanc: Proceed: Bdle 855 Myrfeld v. Tempest). Ellen joined her hus­band in various sales of land in Tong and in settlements (Deeds at Tong Hall).
