Mary HENEAGE

Notes: her third husband, Robert Lane derived his wealth and position principally from his father's marriage, and it was his mother who, after her husband's death in 1540, acquired for 40 the wardship of the 13 year-old heir and an annuity of 10. Lane was licensed to enter upon his lands on 26 Apr 1548 but as his mother continued to live at Horton he took up residence at the house which he had inherited at Hogshaw in Buckinghamshire: he was living there when he sued out his pardon at the accession of Mary. As a grandson of William, 1st Baron Parr of Horton and a cousin of Henry VIII's last Queen, Lane must early have gone to court, where one of his mentors is likely to have been his kinsman Sir Nicholas Throckmorton; Lane's senior by some dozen years, Throckmorton served successively in the households of Baron Parr, Queen Catherine Parr and Edward VI. When in 1549 Throckmorton forwent his allegiance to the Protector Somerset in favour of the Duke of Northumberland, Lane probably followed his lead, and Northumberland must have thought well enough of him to pair him with Throckmorton as the Council's nominees for Northamptonshire in the second Edwardian Parliament. (It is possible that, like Throckmorton, Lane had sat in its forerunner: he could have replaced Henry Williams for the last session of Jan to Apr 1552). Of Lane's part in the brief but significant Parliament of Mar 1553 nothing is known. His role in the succession crisis which followed is likewise to be inferred only from the knighthood which he received at Mary's coronation: if this was for loyalty during the previous summer Lane had probably declared for the Queen in Northamptonshire, where the issue was momentarily disputed. Yet Lane was to play only a minimal part in public affairs during the reign: this may have been due to his association with Throckmorton, in whose plotting against the government Lane appears nevertheless to have had no share, or with his brother-in-law Thomas Copley during that wayward figure's Protestant phase. In 1564, however, Lane was himself to be adjudged an ‘earnest furtherer of religion’ and as such he gave many years of service to the Elizabethan regime. The date of his death is unknown but it took place about 1588.

Elizabeth HENEAGE (C. Winchelsea)

Born: 9 Jul 1556, Copt Hall, Epping, Essex, England

Died: 13 Mar 1632/3, Eastwell, Kent, England

Notes: At her father’s death, she made a settlement on her stepmother, Mary Browne, dowager Countess of Southampton, in return for the Countess’s agreement to pay all of Heneage’s debts. Elizabeth was at the courts of Elizabeth I and James I, and was in the Queen’s funeral procession in 1603. After Sir Moyle's death Elizabeth and her sons made considerable efforts to have the family's status elevated. On 8 Jul 1623 Elizabeth was created a peeress as Viscountess Maidstone, supposedly in remembrance of the good services of her father. In fact, she transferred the family seat, Copt Hall, Essex, to the Lord Treasurer, Sir Lionel Cranfield, to secure the honor. She was further elevated to Countess of Winchelsea on 12 Jul 1628; the titles devolving upon her male heirs.
