      ...George Huxley, Eldest son and heir, but disinherited, became a merchant in London, and purchased the estate of Wyre Hall, Edmonton,- Middlesex, 1609- 1627. Married Catherine, daughter of John Robinson. After Ptr. Huxley's death she married Robt. Lord Viscount Kilmorey. They had one son.
      of Wyre Hall, died 29 Sept., 1661, aged 64 years, buried at Edmonton, married Elizabeth, daughter of Moses Tryon. Her will proved 16 February, 1684, as of Wyre Hall. They had one son.

      ....while at the end of the sixteenth century, George, the
      disinherited heir of Brindley, became a merchant in London, and purchased Wyre Hall at Edmonton, where his descendants lived for four generations, his grandson being knighted by Charles II in 1663.

      Wyer-hall.
      Wier, or Wyer-hall, an ancient mansion in this parish, took its name, perhaps, from the family of Wyrehalle, who had property in Edmonton in the reign of Edward III. (fn. 69) About the year 1581 it belonged to Jasper Leeke, Esq. who inherited it from his father. From that family it passed to the Huxleys, to whom it still belongs, being the property of Mrs. Sarah Huxley, under whom it is held on lease by Lewis Leitch, Esq. The house was rebuilt in the year 1611 by George Huxley, Esq. as appears both by the date and initials on the pipes, and the arms of Huxley over a chimney-piece in one of the principal rooms. An ancient door-way remains belonging to a former house, of which it is probable that the hall also was a part. It is sitted up with scrolled pannels, among which the rose and pomegranate, the devices of England and Arragon, frequently occur. In this hall are some good family-pictures. In an upper room are the arms of the Merchant-Adventurers, to which company it is most probable Mr. Huxley belonged.

      ...Monuments.
      At the north-east corner of the chancel is an ancient altar-tomb of purbeck marble, richly ornamented with quatrefoils, &c. The arms and brass figures have been torn off (fn. 72). On the north wall is the monument of George Huxley, Esq. (fn.73) of Wyer-hall, who died in 1627, and his wife Katherine,(afterwards married to Robert Viscount Kilmorey,) who died in 1629.
      Arms. Erm. on a bend cottised Gul.3 crescents Or, impaling Vert. on a chev. betw. 3 stags Or, as many tresoils slipped Gules, for Robinson. George Huxley married the daughter of John Robinson.

      The Huxleys and the Tryons were gentry with City connections. Moses Tryon, a Royalist, is recorded in 1638 as one of the wealthiest inhabitants of St Olaves, Old Jewry in London[3]. George Huxley, a haberdasher, bought the medieval Wyer Hall from Sir John Leeke in 1609 and substantially altered it. Daniel Lysons described the house in 1795: ‘The house was rebuilt in the year 1611 by George Huxley, Esq. as appears both by the date and initials on the pipes, and the arms of Huxley over a chimney-piece in one of the principal rooms. An ancient door-way remains belonging to a former house, of which it is probable that the hall also was a part. It is sitted up with scrolled pannels, among which the rose and pomegranate, the devices of England and Aragon, frequently occur. In this hall are some good family-pictures. In an upper room are the arms of the Merchant-Adventurers, to which company it is most probable Mr Huxley belonged’[4].
