Rev Richard Frankland

(1 November 1630 - 1 October 1698)
     Rev Richard Frankland was born on 1 November 1630 in Rathmell, Giggleswick, Yorkshire. He was the son of John Frankland and Jane Unknown (Browne) (Frankland).
     Richard was educated from from 1640 to 1648 at Giggleswick Grammar School, Yorkshire.
     Richard matriculated at Christ's College, Cambridge University, from 1648 to 1655. Admitted minor pensionary (aged 17) at Christs College, Cambridge 18 May 1648. The tone of the college was cultured puritanism. He was a hard student and took his degree with distinction. B.A. 1651/2, M.A. 1655. Richard was a clergyman from 1653 to 1662. The Dictionary of National Biography states: After graduating he preached for short periods at Hesham, Northumberland; Houghton le Spring and Lanchester, Durham. At Lanchester he received Presbyterian ordination on 14 September 1653. 'Discouragements' led him to remove to a chaplaincy at Ellenthorpe Hall, near Boroughbridge, West Riding of Yorkshire, in the family of John Brook who was a strong Presbyterian. He left Ellenthorp to become curate to Lupthorn, rector of Sedgefield, Durham. Sir Arthur Haslerig put him into the rich vicarage of Bishop Auckland some time before August 1659. [Vicar of St Andrews, Auckland from 14 September 1653 according to Peile]. Some post was designed for him in the college at Durham. At Bishop Auckland where two of his children were born, he confined himself to his parochial duties. After the restoration he was one of the first to be attacked for nonconformity leading to his ejectment in 1662. He retired to his patrimony in Rathmell where he lived some years in privacy. In March 1670 he began receiving students at Rathmell, totalling 304. The academy had six migrations - moving to Natland near Kendal in Westmorland in 1674, in 1683 the five mile act compelled him to move to Calton Hall, the seat of the Lamberts in the parish of Kirkby Malham, West Riding and in 1684 to Dawson Fold in Westmorland just outside the five mile radius from Kendal. In 1685 he retired to Hart Barrow, just inside the Lancashire border, convenient for escaping a writ from either county. From 1686 to 1689 he was at Attercliffe, a suburb of Sheffield. He left Attercliffe at the end of July 1689 on the death of his favourite son and returned to Rathmell.
     Rev Richard Frankland married Elizabeth Sanderson on 11 October 1658 in Brancepeth, Durham.      
Rev Richard Frankland paid the tax on 2 hearths in 1665/66 in Rathmell, Giggleswick Yorkshire.
     Rev Richard Frankland was mentioned in the 1672 hearth tax list in Rathmell, Giggleswick, with 3 hearths. A Richard Frankland had 1 hearth at Giggleswick and a Richard had 3 hearths at Rathmell. A Stephen Frankland had 5 hearths and "more per a schoolehouse" 1 hearth at Giggleswick.
     Rev Richard Frankland was mentioned in the 1675 hearth tax list in Natland, Kendal, Westmorland, 6 hearths. He resided there till the Spring of 1683 conducting a school.
     Rev Richard Frankland lived at Dawson Fold, Kirkby Malham, Yorkshire, from 1683 to 1684.
     Rev Richard Frankland lived at Attercliffe, Sheffield, Yorkshire, from 1686.
     On October 8 1689 the Toleration Act listed houses of Mr Richard Ffrankland of Rathmell and others.
     A Puritan divine who took in his sister Margaret Banks. His portrait is in Dr Willliam's Library. He established Attercliffe Theological Academy circa 1686, after three years he was succeeded by Rev Timothie Jolly, who renamed the Academy "Christ's College" who lasted for 23 years [F Bradbury, in "Transactions of the Hunter Archaeolgical Society v.5 p.18, 1943].
     In the Northowram register he had an indulgence for a Protestant / Presbyterian meeting house at Rusholme.
     His 'northern academy' was transferred to Manchester by John Chorlton and continues as the Manchester New College., removed in 1889 from London to Oxford..
     Rev Richard Frankland made a will dated 27 September 1698 in Rathmell, Giggleswick . For his will see The Older nonconformists in Kendall p.191-3. According to Richard Frankland's will (dated 27 Sep 1698) Margaret Banks had eaten at his table for 7 or 8 years, and no payment had been made for her maintenance. In a passage that breathes of justice rather than affection Frankland released his brother-in-law Robert Banks and Margaret his wife for all claims for "tabling" her for such a period. In another passage he discharged his nephew Joseph Banks of Sheffield for all claims for the "tabling" provided he released to him all such goods as had lately belonged to Robert, and had been granted by Robert to Joseph for Margaret's maintenance. This having been done, he bequeathed 20 shillings to Robert, £4 to Margaret, and 5 shillings each to Joseph, his wife, and their two children. Robert's elder son Robert, then of Hull, and his children were to have 10 shillings each.
     Richard died on 1 October 1698 in Rathmell, Giggleswick Yorkshire, aged 67. He 'died in the midst of his scholars'. He was buried on 5 October 1698 in Giggleswick. His daughters placed an ornate mural tablet to his memory - the inscription states "of the Franklands of Thirkleby".
     Frankland, Richard (1630-1698), nonconformist tutor, was born on 1 November 1630, at Rathmell, Giggleswick, Yorkshire, the son of John Frankland (d. before 1650). Between 1642 and 1648 he was educated at Giggleswick grammar school, before being admitted on 18 May 1648 at Christ's College, Cambridge. He took his BA in 1652 and proceeded MA in 1655. Meanwhile, he had begun to preach at Hexham in Northumberland, and then at Houghton-le-Spring and Lanchester. He was ordained by presbyters at St Nicholas's, Durham, on 14 September 1653. About 1655 he left Lanchester and became chaplain to John Brook at Ellenthorp Hall, near Boroughbridge in Yorkshire. He then became curate at Sedgefield in co. Durham. Oliver Cromwell's plans for a college in Durham included a post for Frankland, but the patent for establishing the college, issued in May 1657, was never put into effect.

On 11 October 1658 Frankland married Elizabeth (1627–1706), daughter of Samuel Sanderson of Hedley Hope, co. Durham, and his wife, Barbara Liddell. They had three sons and four daughters. At some point before August 1659 Frankland was presented to the living of St Andrew's, Bishop Auckland, by its patron Sir Arthur Hesilrige. Following the Restoration a local attorney named Bowster demanded of him ‘publicly before the congregation’ (DNB) whether he intended to conform. Frankland responded that he would take this decision when the terms of conformity were settled and that meanwhile the king had dispensed with conformity in his declaration of 25 October 1660. Bowster and a neighbouring clergyman then obtained the keys to the church and locked Frankland out. Frankland turned to the law for redress, having the perpetrators indicted for riot at the quarter sessions. The defendants had the case moved up to the assizes where it was dismissed on a technicality, there being a flaw in the indictment. Bishop Cosin offered to institute him at Bishop Auckland if he would receive episcopal ordination, but Frankland was unwilling to renounce his ordination by presbyters or to receive an episcopal ordination in private.

Following his ejection Frankland returned to Rathmell, where his daughter Barbara was buried in August 1662 and other children were baptized in 1664, 1666, and 1668. He lived modestly, his house being rated for two hearths in the 1665–6 hearth tax returns. By 1672–3 it had increased to three hearths. It may be from this period that the story dates of Frankland's going to London and using his contacts with the old presbyterian lord chamberlain, the earl of Manchester (d. 1671), to meet and chastise the king ‘to reform your life, your family, your kingdom, and the church’, to which a somewhat startled monarch replied ‘I will do what I can’, before saying ‘I thank you sir’, and retreating into the council chamber (BL, Add. MS 4460, fol. 49).

Frankland opened his first dissenting academy at Rathmell on 8 March 1670. It taught ‘logic, metaphysics, somatology, pneumatology, natural philosophy, divinity and chronology’ (DNB). Morning prayers were at seven, lectures finished by noon, private study continued until prayers at six. Under the declaration of indulgence he was licensed to preach at Rathmell on 22 July 1672. Between February and May 1674 he moved to Natland, near Kendal, where he continued to teach until the middle of 1683. During this time Frankland assisted at the first nonconformist ordination in Yorkshire on 10 July 1678. The increasing persecution of nonconformists brought problems and in March 1681 Oliver Heywood recorded that Frankland had been excommunicated in the ecclesiastical court, although he later received absolution. Natland's proximity to Kendal made Frankland's academy vulnerable under the Five Mile Act, and by 20 June 1683 he had moved his school to Calton Hall in Kirkby Malham, the seat of the Lambert family, 7 miles from Skipton. Late in 1683 he moved again, to Dawson Fold, Crosthwaite, near Kendal, which he left in September 1684 for Hartborough, near Cartmel in Lancashire. Hartborough had the advantage of being on the Lancashire–Cumberland border and hence it was easier to avoid a writ issued in either county by simply crossing into the other.

By 8 November 1686 Frankland had moved to Attercliffe, near Sheffield, taking advantage of James II's religious policy of toleration and obtaining a dispensation at a cost of 50s. Following the revolution of 1688 Frankland registered Rathmell as a meeting-house on 8 October 1689. However, while the Toleration Act protected him as a minister, it did not prevent attacks upon his dissenting academy. The authorities were particularly agitated by his continued training of students for the ministry, for which he received grants from the Presbyterian Fund from 1690. On 2 February 1691 Frankland was excommunicated for not appearing before the chancellor of the archbishop's court in York in answer to a citation of May 1690. With the support of Philip, Baron Wharton, and Sir Thomas Rokeby, a judge in the court of common pleas, who approached the secretary of state, Viscount Sydney, Frankland was able to get the sentence reversed. The absolution was publicly read in Giggleswick church. Frankland was one of the Yorkshire nonconformist clergymen who met at Wakefield on 2 September 1691 to consider the ‘heads of agreement’ sent from London to promote union between presbyterians and Independents. Attempts to suppress the academy by the clergy in Craven in 1692 through a petition to the new archbishop of York, John Sharp, were unsuccessful. Sharp asked Archbishop Tillotson for guidance but in the end seems not to have made use of his advice not to mention nonconformity but instead explain the objections to licensing the academy on the grounds that there was already a school in the parish and that Frankland was breaking his university oath by teaching outside the universities. A meeting between Sharp and Frankland followed at which Frankland was shown the petition against him, but Sharp did not greatly pursue it and seemed more interested in the deficiencies of the local clergy, which Frankland was only too happy to discuss. Frankland also faced prosecution in London, but this was quashed on 14 February 1695.

In 1697 Frankland published his only work, Reflections on a letter writ by a nameless author to the reverend clergy of both universities. Frankland was increasingly subject to ill health, writing on 25 October 1697 that he was ‘afflicted with gravel and wind’ (Nicholson and Axon, 188–9). He died ‘of the stranguary, or a universal decay’ (ibid., 189) on 1 October 1698, and was buried on the 5th in Giggleswick church. He was survived by his wife and three of his daughters. His will of 27 September 1698 gave his wife £30 per annum and made his three daughters his executors, with four ‘yeomen’ as overseers. One of his daughters died in 1700, followed by his wife in 1706. The other daughters, Elizabeth (1664–1739) and Margaret (1672–1718) married one Hill and Samuel Smith, respectively.
