When Wriothesley refused to wed her in 1591, he was fined £5000. After a period as a maid of honor, she married William Stanley, sixth Earl of Derby, in the presence of Queen Elizabeth. They had waited to be sure his sister-in-law’s posthumous child would be a girl, making his title secure, before they wed. This wedding is sometimes said to have been the occasion for the first performance of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, although there are other contenders. In late 1596 and again in late 1597, Elizabeth was rumored to be having an affair with Robert Devereux, second Earl of Essex.

Buried: 1 Feb 1628/9, Westminster Abbey, London, England

Notes: The Complete Peerage vol.X,p.253,note f. She was brought up by her grandfather, Lord Burghley. At fifteen, she was the subject of a poem by Nathaniel Baxter that lamented her lack of a dowry. She married Phillip Herbert, it was said to be a love match. The nuptials were celebrated with a masque at court and King James gave the newlyweds land worth £10,000 at Shurland, Kent. Herbert was one of the King’s favorites and the honors and gifts continued to roll in. In 1605, he was created, Earl of Montgomery. Susan was at court that year to dance in The Masque of Blackness and both Susan and Phillip danced in Hymenaei the following Jan. They had seven sons and three daughters, three of whom died young. Susan’s niece, Elizabeth Norreys, her sister Bridget’s daughter, was living in the Earl of Montgomery’s house in 1622, giving rise to rumors that she was his mistress, but Elizabeth’s elopement with Edward Wray early that year tends to cast doubt on that allegation. Like her husband, Susan was a patron of the arts.

According to Arthur Wilson, Life of James I (1643), the Earl of Oxford was of no reputation in his youth, being very debauched and riotous, and, having no means, maintained it by sordid and unworthy ways. On 22 Jul 1611 Oxford's mother Elizabeth complained against John Hunt, Henry's second cousin and his "bedmate", who seduces her son into evil courses, leads him to extravagance, and prejudices him against her authority. Earl Henry died of wounds received at the siege of Breda.
