Smith's Son Of Snake
This horse was not identified as Easby Snake until the 1891 edition of the General Stud Book, and the identification is probably incorrect [GSB 1/5:1]. Easby Snake may well have been Ellerker's Snake.

THIS is to give Notice, that Mr John Ellerker of Hart near Hartlepoole, in the County of Durham, has a Chesnut ston'd Horse, rising 7 Years old, that he leaps this Spring at a Guinea a Mare, full 14 Hands, three Inches high, very strong, and justly proportion'd in all his Shapes, perfectly sound, without any natural Blemish, he was bred by Mr Robinson of Easby, got by Snake, Snake by Lister's Turk, his Dam by the Duke of Rutland's Gray Turk, her Dam by Hautboy, the Grand Dam by Busler. NB This Horse won the 6 Year old 40 Plate at York last Year [Newcastle Courant, Saturday, March 9. 1727-8. Numb. 150].

To be LEAP'D this SEASON, at Thirsk, At Fifteen Shillings a Mare, A Beautiful Chesnut Horse, called CHILDERS, rising six Years old, free from Blemish, 14 hands three Inches high, goes very justly in all his Exercise, and is thought to be as well Bred, as any Horse in Yorkshire: He was got by Childers, and out of Molly of the Moss, which is own Sister to Squirrel; she was got by Old Snake, her Dam, a Royal Mare of Lord D`Arcy`s, got by Ancaster Turk [Newcastle Courant, Saturday, February 10, 1738-9. Numb. 720].

Simon. Leapd at Cathrick, 5 years old, 1738. Was gott by [Bartlet`s] Childers, his dam was own sistr to Mr Williams` Squirrell, gott by old Snake, his grand-dam by Acastr Turk, his great grand dam was a mare of Ld D`arcy`s, and got by Layton Gray Barb [Pulleine's Arabian Colt], the dam of which was a Royall mare [ER:37]. Simon was bred by Cuthbert Routh and sold to Mr Cuit of Thirsk for 30 guineas in December of 1738. Five more guineas were due Mr Routh in the event that Simon got mares and one free cover a year if Mr Routh so wished. Simon later covered at Catterick [ER:35,37,60].
