To the King's Most Excellent Majesty.

"The Humble Petition of Robert George William Trefusis Esquire, in respect to his Claim to the Barony of Clinton, as Lineal Descendant and Heir General of the Body of Lady Arabella Clinton, Second Daughter of Theophilus Earl of Lincoln, and Baron of Clinton, and Aunt and Co-heir of Edward Earl of Lincoln, and Baron of Clinton, who died without Issue in 1692.

Sheweth,

"That the Petitioner's Ancestor, the said Theophilus Earl Lincoln, was seised of the said Barony of Clinton, by Descent from his Ancestors who had been severally and successively summoned to Parliament from the Time of King Edward the Third, and died in the Year 1667, having had Issue one Son, Edward, and three Daughters; Lady Catherine, Wife of George Booth, afterwards Lord Delamere; Lady Arabella, Wife of Robert Rolle Esquire; and Lady Margaret, Wife of the Honourable Hugh Boscawen.

"That the said Edward died in the Life-time of his Father, leaving Issue only one Child, Edward, who succeeded his Grandfather as Earl of Lincoln, and Baron of Clinton, and died without Issue in 1692; upon which Event the Earldom of Lincoln passed (according to the Patent) to Sir Francis Fiennes, alias Clinton, Grandson of Sir Edward Fiennes, alias Clinton, Uncle of the said Theophilus, as Heir Male of the Body of the first Earl. But the said Barony of Clinton being a Barony by Writ, fell into Abeyance among the Issue of the said Catharine, Arabella, and Margaret, Daughters of the said Theophilus, and Aunts of the said Edward Earl of Lincoln, and Baron of Clinton, and so continued until the Year 1720, when His Majesty King George the First, was pleased to exercise His Royal Prerogative, and to determine the said Abeyance by summoning Hugh Fortescue, Grandson and Heir of the said Lady Margaret Boscawen, to the Parliament by the Title of Hugh Fortescue de Clinton Chevalier.

That the said Hugh Fortescue, Baron of Clinton, died without Issue in 1751, and Margaret Fortescue, his only surviving Sister and Heir, used and enjoyed the Title of Baroness of Clinton during her Life, and died unmarried in 1760.

That upon the Death of the said Margaret Lady Clinton, all the Issue from the said Lady Margaret Boscawen, third Daughter of the said Theophilus Earl of Lincoln, became extinct.

That the Issue of Lady Catherine Booth, eldest Daughter of the said Theophilus Earl of Lincoln, had also become extinct in 1717, by the Death of her only Child Vere Booth, who died unmarried in that Year, and therefore the said Barony of Clinton did upon the Death of the said Margaret Lady Clinton, devolve on Margaret Countess of Orford deceased, as only Daughter and Heir of Samuel Rolle Esquire, Son and Heir of the said Lady Arabella Rolle.

That the said Margaret Countess of Orford, and Baroness of Clinton, died at Pisa in January 1781, leaving Issue only one Son, George, late Earl of Orford, and Baron of Clinton.

That the said George, late Earl of Orford, and Baron of Clinton, died without Issue in December 1791, and Your Majesty's Petitioner is advised that the said Barony of Clinton is thereby devolved upon him as Heir General of the Body of the said Lady Arabella Rolle, being great Grandson and Heir of Samuel Trefusis, only Son that left Issue of Francis Trefusis, by Bridget his Wife, only Daughter that married of the said Lady Arabella Rolle.

Your Majesty's Petitioner therefore most humbly prays, that Your Majesty will be graciously pleased to admit his Claim to the said Barony, and to Order a Writ to be issued to summon your Petitioner to the Parliament by the Title of Baron of Clinton;

And Your Majesty's Petitioner shall ever pray, &c.

"R. G. W. Trefusis."
