Excerpt from Fynes Moryson's Itinerary: Being a Survey of the Condition of Europe at the End of the 16th Century; With an Introduction and an Account of Fynes Moryson's Career

Fynes Moryson was born in 1566, two years after the birth of Shakespeare. He was the third son of Thomas Moryson, of Cadeby, Lincolnshire, who held the lucrative office of Clerk of the Pipe, 1 and was M.P. for Great Grimsby in the Parliaments of 1572, 1584, 1586, 1588-9. Thomas Moryson's father was George Moryson, of Waltham, Lincolnshire, who is said, in the Visitation of Lincolnshire, 1592, to be "descended out of Northumberland." The Morysons were not therefore an old Lincolnshire family, but Thomas Moryson's marriage connected them with the oldest and best families of the county. Fynes Moryson's mother was the daughter and one of the co-heirs of Thomas Moyne (or Moigne) by Bridget, daughter of Sir William Hansard, of North Kelsey. This Thomas Moigne, whose family had been among the gentry of Lincolnshire from the 13th century, took an important part in the rising at the time of the Pilgrimage of Grace. He was tried by Sir William Parr, at Lincoln, in 1537, with the Abbot of Kirksted and others, and the Lincoln jury sympathised with the prisoners. Moigne spoke in his own defence for three hours so skilfully that "but for the diligence of the King's serjeant" he and all the rest would have been acquitted. "Ultimately the Crown secured their verdict.
