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

Maria Harriet (née Hesketh), Lady Haldon
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.

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.
