{62} Edward III Descents for Elizabeth (née Kaye), Viscountess Lewisham (1707-1745)

Elizabeth (née Kaye), Viscountess Lewisham
(1707-1745)
Another ancestor of Rachel Esme Newton, wife of (Lancelot) Geoffrey Moore, with interesting lines back to Edward III through Northern families, is Elizabeth Kaye, wife of George Legge, Viscount Lewisham, son and heir of the 1st Earl of Dartmouth. The Kayes had come to prominence in the West Riding of Yorkshire in the late 16th century, their rising status being based upon involvement in local clothing and metallurgical industries and the inheritance of property. Marriage with a Finchenden heiress in the 15th-century brought them Woodsome Hall in the parish of Almondbury. The Kayes were said in 1642 to hold estates valued at £1,000 p.a., and at the Restoration the family head was given a baronetcy. As the only child of the 3rd Baronet, Elizabeth inherited Woodsome Hall, bringing it with her into the Legge family, though the baronetcy was inherited by her male first cousin John Lister Kaye of Denby Grange.
