Elizabeth SOUTHWELL

Born: 1567

Died: AFT 1602

Notes: was at court as a maid of honor by 1588/9 and in 1591 suffered from lameness in her leg she was pregnant. Thomas Vavasour took the blame for her condition and was imprisoned for misconduct. What happened to Elizabeth is unclear, other than that she gave birth to a boy named Walter (b. 1591 - d.1641) who was given to Lettice, Countess of Essex and Leicester, to be raised at Drayton Bassett. She may have returned to court, but more likely she was simply still referred to as a maid of honor. In May 1595, Queen Elizabeth learned that the father of young Walter was not Thomas Vavasour but rather Robert Devereux, Earl of Essex. The Queen was furious, not only because the child had been fathered by Essex, her on and off again favorite, but because she had been deceived. By 22 Mar 1598, when Sir Barentyne Moleyns (or Molyns, Mullens, Mullins), visited Simon Forman the astrologer, Elizabeth Southwell had agreed to marriage with Moleyns. Moleyns was almost blind, weakened by wounds hed received in service to the Queen, and notorious for his ugliness. Formans records indicate disgusting health problems as well, and yet, in Apr, he was considering abandoning the match with Elizabeth if he could persuade another woman, Mary Hampden, to marry him. Then, in Jun, he had a license to marry Elizabeth Southwell, but she had apparently changed her mind. In notes made later, in 1600, Forman noted that Elizabeth Southwell had three suitors and that she was thirty years old. She was already married to Moleyns by that time, since she attended the christening of Robert Sidneys daughter Barbara in Dec 1599 as Lady Moleyns. In 1602 she gave birth to their only child, a son.

Notes: god-daughter of Queen Elizabeth and became maid of honour in 1599. On 5 Jan 1599, Rowland Whyte wrote to Sir Robert Sidney that the young faire Mrs. Southwell shall this Day be sworn Mayde of Honor.  As the daughter of Elizabeth Howard and the granddaughter of Catherine Carey, she was the third generation to serve in Queen Elizabeth's Privy Chamber. She was still there when Elizabeth died in 1603. On 26 Oct 1604, Elizabeths mother remarried, taking as her second husband John Stewart, Earl of Carrick (d. 1644). Elizabeth Southwell must have had many opportunities to make a good marriage under James I and she is known to have been courted by Sir Clement Heigham, but instead of marrying, she became the mistress of Sir Robert Dudley, a married man who had seven daughters, four of whom lived to adulthood. In 1605, disguised as a page, she eloped with Robert Dudley to the continent. They were married by special Papal dispensation and she spent the rest of her life in exile in Italy. They had thirteen children. She died on the day following her youngest sons birth.
