Mrs. G. was the daughter of that eminent comedian Mr. Hippelley, the predeceffor of Yates and Shuter. She began her career on the stage of Goodman's-fields playhoufe, about the time that Mr. Garrick commenced the profetion of an actor. She was married to Henry Green, efq. who died fome few years fince, purfer of the Namur, a 90gun fhip. After a painfu! @ruggle with Nature for eight weeks, Mrs. G. (having completed her 72d year) was carried off by a mortification in her limbs, which age and imbecillity, occafioned by illness, and a leng courfe of medicine, rendered it out of the power of Art to stop. In private life, Mrs. G. was an affectionate wife, a tender parent, and a steady friend. She has left be ind her two fons, the elder a captain of marine, the younger at prefent unprovided for. As an a Arefs, we have no one performer, on either of our stages, equal to Mrs. Green in the termogants, and few in the pert chambermaids, and various other comic and farcical characters. She was the powerful rival of Clive, in the best days of Kitty's powers; and, as long as the continued on the stage, was defervedly a great favourite with the publick. She quitted Covent garden theatre a few years fince, on a pique, occafioned by fome difference with the manager; and has ever fince refiled in a small house of her own near Jacob's Well, Briftol, which her father built when proprietor of the adjoining

Hereford, Sept. 25. mantion of Burgbope, or Burbope, of which I lately fent you a drawing, is fituated near the road from Hereford to Leominster, feven miles from the former, on an agreeable eminence, a part of Dinmore hill. It was for fome ages in the family of the Moores; and from them came to the antient family of Goodere, which has often enjoyed the honour of knighthood, and been of confiderable note in feveral counties'.
Francis G. of London, who lived in the reign of Henry VIII, purchafed Polefworth nunnery at the Diffolution, and had iffue William and Henry, both knights; Sir Henry an accomplished perfon, and of eminent note in that County, fuffered imprisonment in behalf of the unfortunate Queen of Scots. He left two daughters; Frances married to Sir Henry, his eldest brother's fon and heir 3, whofe iffue were four daughters 4. Henry G. was living at Baginton 10 Eliz.s From this family defcended Edward G. efq. created baronet Dec. 5, 1707, 6 Anne; kaight of the fire for the county of Hereford in the parliament preceding that, and M. P. for Evesham in feveral fince; 80 years old 1727, and died 1739, aged 92, having married Eleanor, only daughter and heir of Sir Edward Dineley, knt. of Charlton, in the county of Worcester, by Frances, daughter of Lewis Watton, Lord Rocking
ham. He was the last of the family who relided here; but the property devolved to his eldest fon, Sir John Dineley Gooders, who allumed the name of Dineley inrefpe&t of the large eftate which he inherited from his mother; but, having lived on b:d terms with his younger brother, Samuel Dineley G. captain of the Ruby man of war, and threatening to difioherit him in favour of his fifter's fon, John Foot, of Truro, in Cornwall, efq. it fo alarmed the Captain, that he formed a refolution of murthering him, which he executed Jan. 17, 1741. A friend at Brifiol, who knew their mortal antipathy, had invited them both to dine, in hopes of reconciling them, and they parted in the evening in feeming friendship; but the Captain placed fome of his men in the fireet, near College-green, to carry off his brother, under pretence of his being difordered in his fenfes, to his fhip, where he caufed him to be ftrangled in the cabin by two of the crew, White and Mahony, himfelf ftanding at the door. Such an atrocous deed could not long be concealed": the Captain and his two .ccomplices were tried at Briftol the 28th of March following, and executed April 15. He had behaved bravely in his profettion on feveral occafions, been at the taking of St. Sebaftin, Feriol, and St. Antonio. His eldett fon, Etward, fucceeded to the title, and dying 1761, fogle, was fucceeded by his brother John, who died at Dublin, 17857. John Foot, nephew to Sir John, and elder brother to the celebrated comedian. became potleifed of the Charly a
