John Evelyn's Diary 1684 Dec . 18 Dec 1684 . I went with Lord Cornwallis (28) to see the young gallants do their exercise, Mr. Faubert having newly rail'd in a manage, and fitted it for the academy. There were the Dukes of Norfolk (29) and Northumberland (18) , Lord Newburgh (20) , and a nephew of (Duras) Earle of Feversham (43) . The exercises were, 1. running at the ring ; 2. flinging a javelin at a Moor's head ; 3. discharging a pistol at a mark ; lastly, taking up a gauntlet with the point of a sword ; all these perform'd in full speede. The D. of Northumberland (18) hardly miss'd of succeeding in every one, a dozen times, as I think. The D. of Norfolk (29) did exceeding bravely. Lords Newburgh (20) and Duras seem'd nothing so dextrous. Here I saw the difference of what ye French call "belle homme a cheval," and " bon homme a cheval;" the Duke of Norfolk being the first, that is, rather a fine person on a horse, the Duke of Northumberland being both in perfection, namely, a graceful person and excellent rider. But the Duke of Norfolk told me he had not ben at this exercise these 12 yeares before. There were in the field ye Prince of Denmark, and the Lord Landsdown (23) , sonn of ye Earle of Bath (56) , who had ben made a Count of ye Empire last Summer for his service before Vienna.

In 1685 Henry Howard 7th Duke Norfolk 1655-1701 (29) was appointed 490th Knight Garter: James II .

John Evelyn's Diary 1685 Apr . 08 Apr 1685 . Being now somewhat compos'd after my greate affliction, I went to London to hear Dr. Tenison (48) (it being on a Wednesday in Lent) at Whitehall . I observ'd that tho' the King (51) was not in his seate above in the chapell, the Doctor made his three congees, which they were not us'd to do when the late King was absent, making then one bowing onely. I ask'd the reason; it was sayd he had a special order so to do. The Princesse of Denmark (34) was in the King's Closet, but sat on the left hand of the chaire, the Clearke of the Closet (50) standing by His Ma*s chaire, as If he had ben present. I met the Queene Dowager (46) going now first from Whitehall to dwell at Somerset-house . This day my brother of Wotton and Mr. Onslow were candidates for Surrey against Sr Adam Brown and my cousin Sr Edwd Evelyn, and were circumvented in their election by a trick of the Sheriff's* taking advantage of my brother's party going out of the small village of Leatherhead to seek shelter and lodging, the afternoone being tempestuous, proceeding to the Election when they were gon; they expecting the next morning; whereas before and then they exceeded the other party by many hundreds, as I am assur'd. The Duke of Norfolk (30) led Sr Edw. Evelyn's and Sr Adam Brown's party. For this Parliament, very meane and slight persons (some of them gentlemen's servants, clearkes, and persons neither of reputation nor interest) were set up, but the country would choose my brother whether he would or no, and he miss'd it by the trick above mentioned. Sr Adam Brown was so deafe that he could not heare one word. S1 Edw. Evelyn was an honest gent much in favour with his Majesty.
