Notes for ELIZABETH DE PERCY: Mistress of the robes to Queen Anne. Died of Breast Cancer. Countess of Ogle. Was only four when her father Josceline died. She was married as a child, first to Lord Ogle, who died shortly afterwards, and then to Thomas Thynne of Longleat, a man of the worst character, from whom she fled shortly after the marriage to Holland. He was murdered by a Swedish adventurer, Count K6nigsmark, in 1681, and his widow thereupon married, in 1682, Charles Seymour 6th Duke of Somerset, popularly known as 'the Proud Duke'. She was Mistress of the Robes to Queen Anne. The Duke played a considerable part in public affairs, and was one of those largely responsible for the Revolution of 1688 and for the accession of the Hanoverian dynasty in 1714. The Duchess died in 1722 and the Duke in 1748. His son Algernon 7th Duke of Somerset succeeded him. Alnwick Castle had at this period fallen into considerable decay. In 1677 it is described as having "some part of it in repair", and it continued to be the residence of the Baronial officials. In 1691 part of it was a school. Daughter the Lady Elizabeth Percy, who became the loneliest and richest heiress in the country when her father died while in Italy in 1670 at the age of twenty five. As a mere infant of four years she was to carry the heavy burden and responsibilities of the family's vast estates. The Earldom of Northumberland and the Barony of Percy were now it seems wrongly deemed to be extinct, and it looked like the ancient family of Percy would die with her. She was the most eligible heiress in England, and as a result the poor girl was married three times before her sixteenth birthday. To understand how the modern duke of Northumberland can tell himself a Percy when the Percy line apparently became extinct in 1670, one must examine with intrigue the complicated series of accidents, designs and machinations involving the descendants of Lady Elizabeth Percy. Elizabeth nicknamed 'carrots' due to her red hair was pestered by suitors. Charles II wanted her as a wife for one of his bastard sons, but this time he was unlucky. At the age of twelve, she was made to marry the Earl of Ogle, who died six months later. Her second husband was Thomas Thynne of Longleat, who was murdered by hired assassins in Pall Mall at the behest of another jealous suitor, count Koningsmark. Twice a widow at the age of sixteen, she finally married in 1682 that preposterous "Proud" Duke of Somerset. It is not even possible to say that she lived happily ever after, since life, as the Duchess of Somerset, the consort of a mad over bearing tyrant, cannot have been pleasant. She died in 1722, and all her Percy estates aginst the direct wishes of her ancestors somehow became vested in the dukedom of Somerset. Immediately their son Algernon Seymour was created Baron Percy to protect the families’ inheritance.
