    • Note: 'A few months after the marriage, Pepys, under date 20 Jan. 1661/2, says, "I was told the occasion of my Lord Chesterfield's going and taking his lady (my Lord Ormond's daughter) from court. It seems he hath been long jealous of the Duke of York, but ... the lady by all opinions is a most good virtuous woman." His father-in-law, the Duke of Ormonde, writes 17 Jan. 1662/3, "Lord Chesterfield's extravagant proceedings must deprive him of the esteem and opinion of all sober men. I do not know how to govern myself to redeem my daughter from the afflicting life that seems to be prepared for her and my Lord C. (for whose person and disease I have kindness and compassion) from that scandalous state he has brought himself to." Of the lady herself there is an account in the Memoirs of Count Gramont, cap.vii; "This was one of the most agreeable women in the world: she had a most exquisite shape, though she was not very tall; her complexion was extremely fair with all the expressive charms of a brunette; her manners were engaging; her wit lively and amusing; but her heart ever open to tender sentiments, was neither scrupulous in point of constancy, nor nice in point of sincerity." Her husband, who was exceedingly jealous, is said to have had her poisoned in the wine administered for the sacrament.' 1 2
