Born: 1555

Died: 11 Apr 1618

Notes: a former recusant who spent some time abroad as an "exile for the faith", before succeeding to the barony in 1577. He renounced his hereditary right to the office of Lord Marshal of Ireland in return for the right to print the book about how to instruct children in the oath of allegiance. His son William became fourth Baron Mounteagle through his mother Elizabeth Stanley, as well as eleventh Lord Morley. Of this same family was Matthew Parker, Archbishop of Canterbury.

Mary PARKER

Died: AFT 1606

Notes: Her husband, Thomas Habington, spent the years 1586-92 in the Tower of London for his part in the Babington Conspiracy. In 1606, he again committed treason by hiding the conspirators in the Gunpowder Plot in the eleven secret chambers in his house in Hindlip, near Worcester. It has been suggested that Mary wrote the letter warning Lord Mounteagle, her brother, of the plot, and led to its failure. This idea is strengthened by the fact that Habington was not executed, or imprisoned in the Tower, but only restricted to Worcestershire for the remainder of his life.
