fIR FRANCIS BARNHAM AND A PROPOSED ACADEMY OF LITERATURE UNDER JAMES I.: THE FAMILY OF LADY BACON. I In the meagre notice of Sir Francis B.ungiven in Rose's Biographical Dictionary

13 stated that he and his father-in-law Sampson Lennard were, about 1620, nominated Bembers of a proposed academy of literature, to fce railed the Academy Royal, and to be attached B the Order of the Garter. Of the scheme

■ this academy something more thin Rose ■fli as may be learnt from two volumes among few Harleian MSS. (G103 and 6143), where its piginal projectors explain their intentions at fe^tb, but its history has never been written and

■ very obscure. The object was to establish a ■wntherhood under royal favour to foster learning Ltod to direct the labours of all "writers in femanitie." Between 1617 and 1620 tin project ttuined much influential support, and Bucking-■'ii and the king freely assented to it. In 1622 lames I. bade l'rmce Charles take the necessary teps for putting it in practice (Cal. State Papers, fine 25, 1622), but James died before anything 1*3 done, and Charles I. was solicited in vain by Utnund Bolton—who had taken an active part in flanging the preliminary details, and has been edited with the authorship of the Harleian MSS.

on the subject—to proceed in the matter soon after his accession (Cal. State Papers, Dec. 30,1625). Nothing further is heard of the scheme. Mr. Thompson Cooper has given a brief account of it in his notice of Edmund Bolton in his little Biographical Dictionary, and some reference to it is made in the first volume of the Archccologia (p. zv), but I have been unable to meet with any list of the members who were to form the proposed academy. I imagine from Rose's account that such must exist, and I shall be grateful if any readers of " N. & Q." can help me to find it.

Assuming the trustworthiness of Rose's statements, I cannot comprehend the claims of Sir Francis Barnham to admission to a literary academy. According to Rose, he was the author of an unprinted history of his family, of which I have been unable to find other mention. A letter from him to Mr. Griffith, the Lord Privy Seal's secretary (July 3,1613), in Lansdowne MS. 255, No. 155, and some account of his connexion with Boughton Monchelsea (Monchensey), co. Kent, in Harleian MS. 6019, represent all that I have been able to learn of him from the MSS. of the British Museum, and no printed catalogue of MSS. at the Bodleian or in the Cambridge University Library refers to him. I have noted, as Rose, with his customary perfunctoriness, has failed to do, several facts of interest concerning his family, but of his personal history or literary fame I have ascertained little. I should be grateful for farther information.

Sir Francis was the eldest son of Martin Barnham, of London and Hollingbourne, co. Kent, by his second wife, Judith, daughter of Sir Martin Calthorpe, Knight, of London, and grandson of Francis Barnham, merchant, who was elected Alderman of Farriogdon Without on December 14, 1568, and Sheriff of London in 1570. Martin Barnham was Sheriff of London in 1598, was knighted on July 23, 1603 (Nichols's Progresses of James I., i. 214), and dying on December 12, 1610, at the age of sixty-three, was buried in St. Clement's, Eastcheap (Stow's London, ed. Strype, bk. ii. p. 183). Of the three younger brothers of Martin Barnham, Benedict (the most important member of the family) was educated at St. Alban's Hall, Oxford (Wood's^Hd'juiiiM.ed. Gutch,p.659), was a liveryman of the Drapers' Company, became Alderman of Bread Street Ward on October 14, 1591, and servtd the office of sherifT in the same year. He joined the Society of Antiquaries, originally formed by Archbishop Parker in 1572, of which Aubrey, Camden, and Spelman, among a number of smaller antiquaries, were conspicuous member?, the dissolution of which about 1612 had originally suggested the formation of a literary academy (Archceologia, i. xx). Benedict died on April 3, 1598, at the age of thirty-nine, and an elaborate monument was erected above his grave in St. Clement's, Eastcheap (Stow, ut supra).
