The British Nobility thread 2: Sep 2022 -


If you have answers, please help by responding to the unanswered posts.
I came across this letter by Elizabeth Compton (born Spencer; daughter of Sir John Spencer, Lord Mayor of London) to her husband, then Baron Compton, later Earl of Northampton, read out by Olivia Coleman. She has quite some expectations... For context: this letter was written in 1610 after her father had died and his large fortune ended up in the hands of his son-in-law; as the husband of his only daughter Elizabeth. So, she was claiming her father's inheritance (to make things even more complicated: her father disapproved of her marriage - and they only got married after her future husband used his influence at court to have her father thrown in prison and had Elizabeth escape by a baker's basket from Canonbury Tower).

I’ve often seen references to Rose Hanbury, Marchioness of Cholmondeley, being a best-dressed guest at 2011’s royal wedding. But I’ve never seen a photo of her at the event ~ can someone kindly provide one?
