Notes: Mary Beaumont was created Countess of Buckingham in her own right on 1 Jul 1618. As a young woman, Mary was a waiting gentlewoman in the household of Lady Beaumont of Cole Orton, but by her first marriage, to Sir George Villiers of Brooksby, Leicestershire (d. Jan 1606), she had four successful children: John, Viscount Purbeck (b. ABT 1591 - d. 1657); George, Duke of Buckingham (b. 1592 - d. 1628), King James I's favorite; Christopher, Earl of Anglesey (b. 1593 - d. 1630), and Susan, Countess of Denbigh (b. ABT 1591 - d. 1655). Mary lived at Goadby with her children after Villiers's death but married twice more, first on 19 Jun 1606 to eighty-year-old Sir William Rayner of Orton Longueville, Hertfordshire (d. Nov 1606), and second to Sir Thomas Compton. The last marriage was unhappy, as Sir Thomas was impoverished and rarely sober. The Countess was buried in Westminster Abbey.

Henry COMPTON

Born: ABT 1584, Brambletye, East Grinstead, Sussex, England

Died: ABT 1649

Notes: Educated Christ Church Oxf. 1599; L. Inn 1602. Associate bencher, L. Inn 1604; custos brevium, court of common pleas C.1630; ranger, Ashdown forest; j.p. Suss. dep. lt. by 1624. It was his connexion with the Sackville family that secured Compton his parliamentary seat at East Grinstead, though his own residence was close by. His association with the Sackvilles began in boyhood, when, in 1592, his mother made a second and disastrous marriage to Robert Sackville, second Earl of Dorset, then a widower. His own marriage naturally strengthened the connexion. Compton died in or before Jul 1649, when the committee for compounding ordered that the heirs to his estate should pay the balance of his fine. No will has been found. Have no confirmation as of yet that Henry was indeed son of Henry Compton and Cecily Sackville. History of Parliament simply states that Henry and Cecily had ?3 sons and 3 daughters. It seems highly likely however given the ties to the Sackville family between the Comptons and Bridges families.
