Marches, they went to a place called Kilham, certainly a name very suggestive of strife far more so than Sterling, though the appellation of the Scottish town means precisely the same.

Mr. John William Storey, late of 19 Summer Hill, Carlisle, descended from John William Storey, of Stockton, remarked that his ancestors formerly owned Chevy Chase and Otterburn, and that Netherby was likewise their property. He said his family were cruelly banished into Northumberland. He was quite correct.

There are the following Stories included in the Muster of Horse on the East Marches, September 30th, 1584 (p. 156):-

    KILLAUM and AUNCHESTER: Christopher Stone. Edward Storie.
    NEWTON: Georg (e) Storye. (See Bishop Wearmouth Stories.)
    LANGTON : John Storey.

From "Notes of Slaughter, Stoulthes and Reapes, 1596," we find that - "Thomas Storie, of Killam, was slain there by night by Sir Robert Kerre and his servants."

In Sir Robert Carey's account to Burghley is this :- "In Hethpoole in daylight by the Davisons, Yonges and Burnes . . . . . . . of 40 kyen and oxen, and hurting Thomas and Peter Storye, &c., in peril of their lives (p. 147, 2.)

Names of the Englishmen hurt and slain by the Scots at Killam, 15th April, 1597:- Reniac Routlidge, Richard Batt, Lowry Brewes, Thomas Henck, Andro Storye, and John Glendennye 'left for dead.' William Ramsey and Richard Storye sore hurt and sundry others hurt.

An untabulated copy of the pedigree. Storeys of Abberwick, is here introduced. Probably Fergus Storey, of Abberwick, was the son of Ralph Storey, grandson of the Ralph who fought at Flodden.

Interesting items have been forwarded at time and time by Mr. Ralph Storey, J. P. of Beanley, and his nephew, Mr. J. Moffat. They will be included and dealt with as appropriately as possible.

Storey of Beanley (Vol. VII. ib, edited by John Crawford Hodgson), begins with- Fergus Storey, who married Helen, the daughter of John Forster, of Newham. (Vol. I. of this work p. 276). Fergus Storey was appointed Bailiff of Beanley, 2nd March, 1634-5 (see Duke of Northumberland MSS.) He purchased the Beanley Tithes from Lord Grey in 1651, and in the same year purchased the tithes of Learchild (see Lambert MSS.) He was a mounted volunteer at the array on Bockensfield Moor in 1660 (see Proceedings of Newcastle Society of Antiquaries, Vol. V., p. 163). Fergus Storey died at Beanley, and was interred on the 7th February, 1669-70. Eglingham Registers.
