About Bryan Metcalfe, (of Beare Park)

BRYAN METCALFE WAS BORN AFTER 1420 AS SIR JAMES ELDEST SON WAS EDMUND, BORN 1420.

-------------------- The Bryan of Beare, departing from what had been the custom in the past, chose as his pedigree the device of:-

"Upon a helm with wreath of silver, a Satyr with spiked club (or monring star)." This device however was not retained for very long, and about four generations later one sees that a descendant of his, one Matthew Metcalfe, in 1581 was granted another crest.

After the Nappa Hall line became extinct, the senior male line of descent passed to Sir Jame's second son, named Bryan. His name is perpetuated in the curious old English Ballad -"The Felon Sow of Rokeby"
