PAUL'S CHURCH-YARD; AND SOLD BY T. WILSON, C. ETHERINGTON, W. TESSEYMAN, J. TODD AND H. SOTHERAN AND D. PECK, IN YORK, 1768. [PRICE ONE SHILLING].(1768). 16mo. PP. [2], [4], 94, 4.

Interior is clean and bright with no loose leaves, worming or damage. The fine press binding is later and modern with a leather title block with gilt lettering. This is the far rarer second edition of Stephen Tempest's Catholic recusant tract which was written prior to Catholic emancipation in England. As such it was written anonymously at a time when Catholicism was still a punishable offence. The few copies printed were confiscated and destroyed. Worldcat lists no copies of this edition in the USA and only 5 in the UK - 1 in the British Library, 1 at Cambridge, 1 held by York Minster Library, 1 at Glasgow and 1 in the National Library of Scotland. There are none listed for sale online and none have come up for sale at sale in recent years.Stephen Tempest was born on 14 October 1689. He was the son of Sir Stephen Tempest and Elizabeth Fermor, daughter of the 1st Lord Leominster, builder of Easton Neston and owner of the Arundel Marbles. He married Elizabeth Lawson, daughter of Sir Henry Lawson, 2nd Bt. and Elizabeth Knightley, in April 1714. He died on 12 August 1771 at age 81. He wrote the book Religio Laici. He lived at Broughton Hall in Yorkshire. He also had a younger son and four daughters. The Tempest family of Yorkshire and Lancashire could trace its history back to the twelfth-century founder of the priory of Bolton. Sir Piers Tempest (born 1390s), who was knighted at Agincourt, was the founder of two major landowning branches of the family. Sir Richard Tempest (d.1489) fought at Towton and was buried at Giggleswick church with the head of his horse beside him. His grandson fought at Flodden and is reputed to have built Bracewell House. A junior member of the family built Tong Hall which stayed in the family from at least the late sixteenth century. Sir John Tempest (d.1693) was born there as was his younger brother, Pierce Tempest (1653-1712), the printseller and publisher of the Strand. A junior branch of the family established itself at Broughton. Stephen Tempest built the manor house at Broughton in 1597 and was knighted by James I. Another, Sir Stephen Tempest (1654-1742) was lord of the manor for 70 years and was responsible for improving the house and gardens. His son, Stephen Tempest (d.1744), was author of the Religio Laici . The Tempests, both at Broughton and Tong, were longstanding recusants. Stephen Walter Tempest (1719-1784) was succeeded by Stephen Tempest (1756-1824), who inherited not only through his parents, but also the manor of Colby in Lincolnshire through his great grandmother and some of the Lostock estates inherited by his wife, Elizabeth Blundell. His son, Charles Robert Tempest (1794-1865), was High Sheriff of Yorkshire. When he died, the family property passed down through his younger brother Henry Tempest, and his grand-daughter, Ethel Mary Tempest (b.1864), married Miles Stapleton, 10th Lord Beaumont of Carlton Towers, in 1892. Their daughter, Mona Josephine Tempest Stapleton, inherited the Bolton and Carlton Towers estates when less than a year old. She also inherited her father's baronetcy, becoming the 11th Baroness Beaumont in 1896.PLEASE SEE MY OTHER LISTINGS...
