      "A pretty red-headed wench; her portion is 7,000; the youth at first refused her, but Lord Cavendish [his father] told him Kinloss was well favoured by the Queen, and if he refused it he would make him the worse by 100,000. The King made up her portion to 10.000." (Lodge's Illustr., vol. iii, p. 351). She was a zealous royalist, and patroness of men of letters, being noted for her hospitality and good management of her son's affairs. Evelyn calls her "that excellent worthy person." Waller, the poet, dedicated his Epistles to her. There is a life of her written by Pomfret.
