Edward III Descents for Lt-Col. Lawrence Rawstorne (c.1775-1850)

Hutton Hall, Lancashire - torn down in 1961
The Rawstorne family established themselves in Lancashire by the late 15th-century in the parish of Edenfield, with Lumb Hall as their chief seat. That manor passed through an heiress in 1660 to the Bradshaw family seated at Bradshaw Hall, but the Rawstorne male-line survived in an offshoot of the senior branch at Lumb Hall, through the enterprising Lawrence Rawstorne of Windsor (d. aft.1557), who had returned to his home parish and purchased New Hall in 1538, and then acquired from the Crown in 1546 an extensive estate to the south of Preston, in the parish of Hutton, centred around the seat of Hutton Grange. The first member of the family to marry into the Edward I bloodline was Lawrence Rawstorne (d. bef. 1611), the grandson and namesake of the purchaser of New Hall and Hutton Grange, who took to wife Holcroft Hesketh (c.1585-1639), the daughter of Robert Hesketh of Rufford Hall. The marriage produced a daughter but was cut short by Rawstorne's untimely death (Holcroft re-married the Yorkshire antiquarian Roger Dodsworth). New Hall and Hutton Grange were eventually inherited by Lawrence Rawstorne's nephew and namesake Lawrence Rawstorne (1619-1700), whose second and third wives, Mary (née Bold) Atherton (c.1625-1665) and Margery Fleetwood (1633-1722) were both of the Edward I bloodline. Rawstorne's marriage to his third wife was meant to bring peace to the families of Rawstorne, Fleetwood and Farrington, who had been quarrelling over lands in the parish of Hutton since the reign of Elizabeth I (see VCH Lancashire 6 (1911), pp. 67-69). It was Lawrence Rawstorne who first recorded his pedigree with a herald, in September 1664, during Sir William Dugdale's visitation of Lancashire, and it is through Lawrence Rawstorne and his third wife Margery (née Fleetwood), that all of the subsequent Rawstornes of New Hall, Hutton Grange (later Hutton Hall), and Penwortham Priory, descend, including their great-great-grandson.

Lt-Col. LAWRENCE RAWSTORNE of Penwortham Priory, Lancashire, 1st Lancashire Militia, b. c.1775; d. 26 Aug. 1850 Penwortham Priory, bur. 2 Sept. 1850 St Mary Church, Penwortham, son of Lawrence Rawstorne of Hutton Hall (1742-1803, descended from Henry IV - see Generation A14 below) and Elizabeth Goldsmith Atherton Gwillym (1742-1823, descended from Edward III - see Generation B14 below); m. 1st(?) 18 July 1824 St Mary Church, Eccles, Lancashire, ELIZABETH MURRAY[*1]; m. 2nd(?) 16 Nov. 1839 St Michael-in-the-Hamlet Church, Liverpool, Lancashire, as her 1st husband, MARGARET ELIZABETH LEDWARD, bap. 4 June 1817 St Nicholas Church, Liverpool; bur. 12 June 1886 St Michael Church, Aldbourne, Wiltshire, dau. of Edward Ledward of Everton, hat manufacturer (1777-1835) and Margaret Ortt (1787-1857), and had issue, one son and three daughters.

1) ELIZABETH HENRIETTA MARIA RAWSTORNE, b. Penwortham Priory, bap. 28 June 1841 St Mary Church, Penwortham; living 1911, d. unknown[*2]; m. 1st 10 Aug. 1865 St John Church, Paddington, London, as his 2nd wife, WILLIAM HENRY SCUDAMORE WARD of Kingston Hill, Surrey, clerk, b. 20 June 1828 Cookham, Berkshire, bap. 2 Oct. 1828 All Saints Church, East Lockinge, Berkshire; d. 11 Mar. 1879 Heath Cottage, Sydenham Road, Croydon, Surrey, son of William James Ward of Maidenhead, solicitor (1794-1851) and Harriet Maria Leycester (1805-1862), and had issue, two sons; m. 2nd 24 Dec. 1884 St Luke Church, Chelsea, London, FREDERICK ARTHUR GEORGE BULLEY of Hastings, Sussex, private tutor, b. 22 Jan. 1853 Reading, Berkshire; d. 6 Dec. 1917 Kent County Lunatic Asylum, Barming Heath, Kent, son of Dr. Francis Arthur Bulley of Reading, surgeon (1808-1883) and Louisa Nash (d. 1893), and had further issue, two sons (both born before their parents' marriage).

2) LAWRENCE RAWSTORNE of Penwortham Priory, b. 6 Aug. 1842 Penwortham Priory; d. 11 Nov. 1938 Lyncote, Parkstone, Dorset; m. 10 Aug. 1871 St Paul Church, Knightsbridge, London, EDITH ELIZABETH HESKETH, b. Oct. 1851 Rufford Hall, Lancashire, bap. 9 Nov. 1851 St Mary Church, Rufford; d. 27 Dec. 1931 Lyncote, est dau. of Sir Thomas George Fermor-Hesketh, 5th Baronet of Ruffed (1825-1872, descended from Henry IV) and Lady Arabella Fermor (1828-1870, descended from Henry VII), and had issue, two sons and one daughter.

3) MARGARET RAWSTORNE, b. Penwortham Priory, bap. 10 Sept. 1845 St Mary Church, Penwortham; d. unknown; m. 20 Dec. 1866 St Marylebone Parish Church, London, WILLIAM SEATON of Hammersmith, Middlesex, civil engineer, b. c.1831 Leamington, Warwickshire; d. unknown, son of William Seaton, and had issue, one daughter[*3].

4) FANNY MARION RAWSTORNE, b. Penwortham Priory, bap. 27 Oct. 1846 St Mary Church, Penwortham; d. 11 Dec. 1928 Hospital of St John & St Elizabeth, St Johns Wood, Middlesex; m. 1st 13 Dec. 1864 St Peter Church, Medmenham, Buckinghamshire, Dr. WILLIAM ANDERSON of Chatham, Kent, fleet surgeon Royal Navy, b. c.1831 Ireland; d. 15 Mar. 1882 Royal Buildings, Walmer, Kent, son of James Anderson, and had issue, two daughters; m. 2nd 29 Jan. 1884 Holy Trinity Church, Paddington, London, Capt. HENRY BENJAMIN WALMSLEY of Paddington, b. 24 Oct. 1843 Stepney, London, bap. 10 Nov. 1843 St Philip Stepney, London; d. 30 Jan. 1899 Paddington, London, son of Henry Benjamin Walmsley of The Elms, maltster (1805-1869) and Anne Vickers (b. 1812), and had further issue, one daughter (born before her parents' marriage).

[*1] Though Lt-Col. Rawstorne is assigned only one marriage in the article on the family in the Burke's Landed Gentry series, there does not appear to be any other Lawrence Rawstorne for whom the 1824 marriage to Elizabeth Murray could match. Rawstorne was the advanced age of 64 when he married 22-year-old Margaret Ledward in 1839. There certainly is a possibility that he had a previous, childless, marriage.

1911 Census of England entry for Frederick and Elizabeth (née Rawstorne) Bulley and their elder son
[*2] I haven't yet located a death date for Elizabeth Henrietta Maria (Rawstorne) (Ward) Bulley. Per the 1911 Census of England, she was living with her husband and their elder son in Hastings, Sussex, in April 1911. She gave her age as 52, which was eighteen years younger than her actual age. I've ordered the death certificate for her second husband Frederick Bulley, which will hopefully provide further clues. [Update: The death certificate of Frederick Bulley has no mention of his wife. He died in the Kent County Lunatic Asylum (today Oakwood Hospital) in Barming Heath, and its records are kept at The Centre for Kentish Studies. The records are sealed for one hundred years, and Frederick Bulley will be deceased for one hundred years in December of next year. Hopefully information within them can help to establish the date of death for his wife.]

[*3] Margaret (née Rawstorne), with her husband William Seaton, living on "Interest in Investments," and their daughter, appears in the 1871 Census of England on Hopgood Street in Hammersmith. In the 1881 Census, William Seaton "Late of 20th Regt. - Out of Employ" lives with his wife Margaret and their daughter at 54 Godolphin Road in Hammersmith. In the 1861 Census, William Seaton is an unmarried civil engineer living in Paddington, London. In the 1911 Census, their daughter is the elder of two female servants in the household of a barrister-at-law and his wife at  Mount Pleasant in Great Malvern, Worcestershire, which suggests that Margaret and William Seaton were deceased by then. Several possible matches for the couple appear in the England & Wales Death Indexes, and further research is needed. Their only child was Margaret Lilian Seaton, bap. 7 Sept. 1868 St Mary Church, Wimbledon, Surrey; d. unm. 1963 Fulham, Middlesex.
1866 Marriage entry for William Seaton and Margaret Rawstorne

Ruvigny Addition: Henry IV & Essex Descents for Lawrence Rawstorne (1842-1938)

Rawstorne coat of arms
[Per fesse, azure and gules, a castle,
triple-towered, or
]
In August 1863 a celebration took place "of considerable interest to the inhabitants of the neighbouring townships of Penwortham, Howick, Hutton, and Longton...the attainment of his majority by the young squire of Penwortham. In the morning the bells of the ancient church rang merry peals; flags floated from the church tower, from Penwortham Priory, from The Oaks...and at other mansions in the various townships in which the estates of the young gentleman are situated; and there were other tokens of rejoicing in the district...the day was anticipated with much enthusiastic feeling by many in Preston, by all in Penwortham, and by large numbers resident in the adjoining districts. For weeks the 'coming of age of the young squire' was the main topic of conversation amongst many of the villagers" [Preston Chronicle and Lancashire Advertiser, August 8, 1863].

The young squire who came of age was Lawrence Rawstorne, and though his family had been gentry in Lancashire since the reign of Henry VIII, it was only fairly recently that Penwortham Priory had become their chief seat. Lt-Col. Rawstorne, Lawrence's father, was descended from the Fleetwoods, the family who had owned Penwortham for two centuries, from the mid-1500s to the mid-1700s. Though Rawstorne was not the Fleetwood family's senior representative, he did nevertheless own the nearby Hutton Hall, in the same parish, and had the financial means and the respect of the local tenantry, so his purchase of the manor in 1810 was smooth and natural. He embarked on an ambitious re-model of Penwortham Priory, completed in 1832.
Penwortham Priory, Lancashire. It was demolished in 1925.
Eight years after his coming of age celebration, the young squire would make a brilliant match, to Miss Edith Ethel Hesketh, the eldest daughter of Sir Thomas Fermor-Hesketh, 5th Baronet, Preston's Member of Parliament since 1862. Lawrence Rawstorne, the squire of Penwortham Priory who came of age so joyously in 1863, lived to a great age but endured much sorrow. He outlived both his sons, each of whom died as a result of active service - the elder from fever contracted while returning home from South Africa, and the younger killed in action on the front in World War I. Neither left children, and any hope of descendants continuing the Rawstorne line through Lawrence was extinguished. He sold Hutton Hall to his nearest male cousin, an Anglican bishop, and allowed Penwortham Priory to be demolished in 1925 to make way for expanded housing projects. He and his wife spent their last years at Lyncote, a house on Constitution Hill in the Dorset coastal town of Parkstone. It was modest,   respectable, and a far cry from his 1863 coming-of-age celebration at Penwortham. Lawrence outlived his wife nine years, and died in 1938 at age 96, with Lyncote house inherited and inhabited by his only surviving child, his widowed daughter Marjory Marson.
Lawrence and Edith (née Hesketh) Rawstorne & children 
in Ruvigny's 1903 Tudor volume, p. 312

It is due to his marriage to Edith Hesketh that Lawrence Rawstorne, and his three children, appear in Ruvigny's 1903 Tudor volume. Following is an elaboration, and continuation into the next generation, of Ruvigny's account.

LAWRENCE RAWSTORNE of Penwortham Priory, Lancashire, b. 6 Aug. 1842 Penwortham Priory; d. 11 Nov. 1938 Lyncote, Parkstone, Dorset, only son of Lt-Col.

Oct. 1851 Rufford Hall, Lancashire, bap. 9 Nov. 1851 St Mary Church, Rufford; d. 27 Dec. 1931 Lyncote, est dau. of Sir Thomas George Fermor-Hesketh, 5th Baronet of Ruffed (1825-1872, descended from Henry IV) and Lady Arabella Fermor (1828-1870, descended from Henry VII), and had issue, two sons and one daughter.

Lawrence Rawstorne (as well as his father and sisters) should have appeared in Ruvigny's 1908 Essex volume, but the Marquis was apparently unaware of their line of descent from Isabel (née Plantagenet), countess of Essex. It is given below, as is his line from Henry IV's illegitimate granddaughter Antigone, countess of Tancarville.
1st Duke of Gloucester -

An error in Table XI (p. 13) in Ruvigny's Essex volume -
see footnote [*2]
[*1] For the detailed argument as to why Elizabeth Ludlow was without doubt the daughter of the 1st Lord Gray of Powis, see the 2015 post Henry IV Descent for Susan (née Inge) Moore (1804-1836).

[*2] In Table XI (p. 13) of his 1908 Essex volume, Ruvigny mistakenly makes Elizabeth (née Vernon) Cholmondeley the sister of Sir Henry Vernon, 1st Baronet, when in actuality she was his daughter. And Ruvigny corrects his own error in the volume's Appendix: "Elizabeth Vernon, wife of Thomas Cholmondeley, was the da. not sister of Sir Henry Vernon, 1st Bart." (p. 381).

[*3] Nick Kingsley gives a thorough account of the Athertons in his article 'Atherton of Atherton Hall and Bewsey Hall'. He was unable to uncover the death date or burial entry for Elizabeth (née Cholmondeley) Atherton, and I've had no better luck. She was only age 31 at her husband's death, and so was certainly young enough to re-marry, but if she did so, the peerage works make no mention of it.

[*4] Lt-Col. Rawstorne m. 1st 18 July 1824 St Mary Church, Eccles, Lancashire, Elizabeth Murray, whom I've been unable to further identify. He does not appear to have had any issue (or at least surviving issue) by her. His second wife Margaret (Ledward) Rawstorne m. 2nd 9 Oct. 1852 St Mary Church, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, Rev. Frederic William Harris, Vicar of Medmenham 1855-72 (1813-1872), and m. 3rd 16 Oct. 1878 St Matthew Church, Redhill, Surrey, George Lee of Aldbourne, Wiltshire (1807-1891).
Descendants of Elizabeth (née Atherton) Gwillym on p. 152 of Ruvigny's Essex volume
On p. 152 of his Essex volume, Ruvigny details Elizabeth (née Atherton) Gwillym, and lists as her issue two sons only. In actuality, she had four sons and three daughters: 1) Richard Atherton Gwillym, bap. 2 Mar. 1740 St Mary Church, Leigh; bur. there 21 June 1740; 2) Robert Vernon Atherton Gwillym [later Atherton], bap. 28 Aug. 1741 St Mary Church, Leigh; bur. there 9 July 1783; 3) Elizabeth Goldsmith Atherton Gwillym (1742-1823 - see Generation A14 above); 4) Jane Atherton Gwillym, bap. 22 Aug. 1743 St Mary Church, Leigh; bur. 4 Sept. 1757 St Mary Church, Leigh; 5) William Atherton Gwillym of Langstone Court, bap. 1 Jan. 1745 St Mary Church, Leigh; d. unm. 9 July 1783; 6) Alice Charlotte Gwillym, bap. 25 Mar. 1748 St Mary Church, Leigh; bur. there 27 Apr. 1751; 7) Thomas Symonds Atherton Gwillym, bap. 7 Apr. 1753 St Mary Church, Leigh; bur. there 5 June 1758; 8) Frances Atherton Gwillym, bur. 10 Oct. 1757 St Mary Church, Leigh. Of these, only two left issue: Robert Vernon Atherton Gwillym [later Atherton], whose descendants Ruvigny traces, and Elizabeth Goldsmith Atherton (née Gwillym) Rawstorne.
Isabel (née Plantagenet), Countess of
Essex
 - see Generation B5

Following is the line of descent from Edward III thru Isabel, countess of Essex, which merges into the line of descent from Henry IV above.

Edward III had a second surviving son,
B1) Lionel of Antwerp, 1st Duke of Clarence (1338-1368) m. 1) Lady Elizabeth de Burgh (1332-1363, descended from Edward I), and had
B2) Lady Philippa Plantagenet of Clarence (1355-1377) m. Edmund Mortimer, 3rd Earl of March (1352-1381), and had
B3) Roger Mortimer, 4th Earl of March (1374-1398) m. Lady Alianore Holland (1370-1405, descended from Edward I), and had
B4) Lady Anne Mortimer (1388-1411) m. Richard of York, 3rd Earl of Cambridge (1385-1415, descended from Edward III), and had
B5) Lady Isabel Plantagenet (1409-1484) m. 2) Henry Bourchier, 1st Earl of Essex (1404-1483, descended from Edward III), and had
1st Viscount Hereford - see

B6) William, Lord Bourchier (c.1428-1477) m. 2) Lady Anne Woodville (c.1448-1489), and had
B7) Cecily Bourchier (c.1473-1493) m. John Devereux, 2nd Lord Ferrers of Chartley (1464-1501, descended from Edward I), and had
B8) Walter Devereux, 1st Viscount Hereford (c.1491-1558) m. 1) Lady Mary Grey (c.1492-1538, descended from Edward III), and had
B9) Sir Richard Devereux of Lamprey (by 1513-1547) m. Lady Dorothy Hastings (c.1520-1566, descended from Edward III), and had

Ruvigny Elaboration: Henry VII Descent & Issue of Lady Arabella Fermor-Hesketh (1828-1870)

Lady Arabella Fermor-Hesketh(1828-1870)
The Fermor family had been seated at Easton Neston House in Northamptonshire for more than four centuries when George, 5th Earl of Pomfret, died in June 1867, a 42-year-old bachelor and the last male descendant of the family. His heirs were his two sisters, Lady Arabella Hesketh, a 39-year-old baronet's wife with six children, and Lady Henrietta Ogilvy, a 37-year-old officer's wife who was childless. Pomfret's will stipulated that everything be divided evenly between his two sisters, but it must have been obvious to the family that Lady Henrietta would most likely remain childless, so eventually the entire Fermor inheritance would come to Lady Arabella and her issue. Consequently, five months later in November 1867, Lady Arabella's husband Sir Thomas Hesketh, 5th Baronet assumed by royal licence the additional surname of Fermor, as did his eldest son (and the second son when he inherited the baronetcy in 1876). Easton Neston House also came into the possession of the Hesketh family, giving them another large estate in addition to Rufford Hall, their chief seat in Lancashire.

Ruvigny, on p. 312 of his 1903 Tudor volume, lists Lady Arabella Fermor-Hesketh, and her descendants up to that point. The account below elaborates on Lady Arabella's children, as well as her line of descent from Henry VII traced by Ruvigny.
Descendants of Lady Arabella Fermor-Hesketh from Ruvigny's 1903 Tudor volume
LADY (ANNA MARIA) ARABELLA FERMOR, b. 2 Jan. 1828 Westminster, London, bap. 19 Mar. 1828 St George Hanover Square, London; d. 25 Feb. 1870 Rufford Hall, Lancashire, bur. 5 Mar. 1870 St Mary Church, Rufford, er dau. of Thomas William Fermor, 4th Earl of Pomfret (1770-1833, descended from Henry IV) and Amabel Elizabeth Borough (1802-1889, descended from Henry VII - see Generation 12 below); m. 10 Mar. 1846 St George Hanover Square, Sir THOMAS GEORGE HESKETH [later FERMOR-HESKETH], 5th Baronet of Rufford, bap. 11 Jan. 1825 St Peter Church, Liverpool, Lancashire; d. 20 Aug. 1872 Rufford Hall, bur. 23 Aug. 1872 St Mary Church, Rufford, only son of Sir Thomas Henry Hesketh, 4th Baronet of Rufford (1799-1843, descended from Edward III) and Annette Maria Bomford (c.1799-1879, descended from Edward III), and had issue, three sons and three daughters.

5) CONSTANCE MARIA HESKETH, bap. 26 Mar. 1854 St Mary Church, Rufford; d. unm. bef. 1924[*1].

6) AUGUSTA SOPHIA HESKETH, bap. 27 May 1855 St Mary Church, Rufford; d. unm., bur. there 11 June 1875.

[*1] I cannot uncover a date of death for Constance Hesketh. It's clear from the newspaper accounts of the death and funeral of her brother the 7th baronet, that Constance had predeceased him. Ruvigny lists her in the Tudor volume, so presumably she was living when it was published in 1903. The 1924 edition of Burke's Peerage (the earliest 20th-century edition which I have access to here in Vancouver) states only that she died unmarried, with no date.

Edward III Descents for Maria Harriet (née Hesketh), Lady Haldon (1826-1905)

Hesketh of Rufford coat of arms
[Argent, on a bend sable three garbs or]
In this final post on the ancestry of Hon. Annette Maria (née Palk) Baird, her maternal ancestry is once again the focus. Her mother Maria Harriet, Lady Haldon has several lines of descent from Edward III, through each of her parents. The previous post detailed the line which should have been included in Ruvigny's 1911 Mortimer-Percy volume. This post explores five additional lines for Lady Haldon from Edward III, the three through his grandson Cardinal Henry Beaufort, as well as the two through his youngest son Thomas of Woodstock.

Sir THOMAS HENRY HESKETH, 4th Baronet of Rufford, b. 11 Feb. 1799 Rufford Hall, Lancashire, bap. 1 Mar. 1799 St Mary Church, Rufford; d. 10 Feb. 1843 Westminster, London, son of Sir Thomas Dalrymple Heskerth, 3rd Baronet of Ruffed (1777-1842, descended from Edward III - see Generation A17 below) and his 1st wife Sophia Hinde (c.1778-1817); m. 3 Apr. 1724 Cheltenham Minster, Gloucestershire, ANNETTE MARIA BOMFORD, b. c.1799 London; d. 17 Dec. 1879 Torquay, Devon, bur. 24 Dec. 1879 St Mary Church, Rufford, est. dau. of Robert Bomford of Rahinston House, Rathcore, co Meath, Ireland (c.1750-1817, descended from Edward III - see Generation C16 below) and Maria Massy (1769-1848), and had issue, one son and one daughter.

Ruvigny Addition: Mortimer-Percy Descent for Maria Harriet (née Hesketh), Lady Haldon (1826-1905)

Maria Harriet (née Hesketh), Lady Haldon
(1826-1905)
Continuing with the ancestry of Hon. Annette Maria (née Palk) Baird, mother of Muriel Jane (née Baird) Noel, we finally turn to her mother's family, the Heskeths. The family had been seated at Rufford Hall in Lancashire for centuries, when, in the latter half of the reign of Elizabeth I, Robert Hesketh (1560-1620), breaking with his family's recusancy, conformed to the Anglican church, and represented Lancashire in Parliament in 1597. He had been the first of the Heskeths to marry into the Edward I bloodline, taking for his first wife, Mary Stanley (d. 1586), from a junior branch of the family of the earls of Derby which had its seat at Cross Hall, in the parish of Latham. The three subsequent generations of Hesketh squires at Rufford Hall also married ladies descended from Edward I, and it was Thomas Hesketh (1677-1720), great-great-grandson of Robert Hesketh and Mary Stanley, who married Anne Graham (see Generation 13 below), a lady descended from the Percy earls of Northumberland. Had Ruvigny been aware of Anne's descent, he would have included the subsequent generations of Heskeths in his 1911 Mortimer-Percy volume.

MARIA HARRIET HESKETH, b. Rufford Hall, Lancashire, bap. 26 Nov. 1826 St Mary Church, Rufford; d. 18 Dec. 1905 Eastfield House, Whitchurch-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, bur. 21 Dec. 1905 St Andrew Churchyard, Kenn, Devon, only dau. of Sir Thomas Henry Hesketh, 4th Baronet of Rufford (1799-1843, descended from Edward III - see Generation 18 below) and Annette Maria Bomford (c.1799-1879, descended from Edward III); m. 15 Nov. 1845 St Mary Church, Rufford, LAWRENCE PALK, 1st Baron Haldon of Haldon, b. 30 Jan. 1818 Marylebone, London, bap. 26 Feb. 1818 St Marylebone Parish Church; d. 22 Mar. 1883 Haldon House, Kenn, Devon, bur. 29 Mar. 1883 St Andrew Churchyard, Kenn, est. son of Sir Lawrence Vaughan Palk, 3rd Baronet of Haldon (1793-1860, descended from Henry IV) and his 1st wife Anna Eleanora Wrey (1787-1846, descended from Edward III), and had issue, four sons and two daughters.

The nineteen-generation descent of Maria Harriet (née Hesketh), Lady Haldon, from Edward III through his great-granddaughter Lady Elizabeth (née Mortimer) Percy, follows. Generations 12 to 19 are additions to Ruvigny.

Ruvigny's account of Elizabeth Slingsby
on p. 121 of Mortimer-Percy (1911)

[*1] Ruvigny includes Elizabeth Slingsby on p. 121 of the Mortimer-Percy volume, stating she was "aged 8 in 1627." He was apparently unaware of either of her marriages. Following the death of her first husband, Elizabeth (Slingsby) Fortescue m. 2nd 1646, as his 2nd wife, John Villiers, 1st Viscount Purbeck, b. c.1591; d.s.p.l. 18 Feb. 1658 Charlton House, Kent. The elder brother of James I's favourite, the Duke of Buckingham, Elizabeth's second husband brought her a title but no further issue. Her only child was Elizabeth Fortescue (see Generation 12 above).

The next blogpost will look at some other lines from Edward III for Maria Harriet (née Hesketh), Lady Haldon.
