first, Mildred, daughter of Nicholas, Wiscount Castleton, by whom he had no issue; and, secondly, on the 18th of November, 1657, the LADY MARY CROM well, daughter of the Protector. Of this nobleman Lord Clarendon gives the following account:-‘‘After Cromwell was declared protector, and in great power, he married his daughter to the Lord Fauconberg, the owner of a very great estate in Yorkshire, and descended of a family eminently loyal. There were many reasons to believe that this young gentleman, being then about three or four-and-twenty years of age, of great vigour and ambition, had many good purposes that he thought that alliance might qualify and enable him to perform. His marriage was celebrated at Whitehall (Wood has given the time at Hampton Court,) with all imaginable pomp and lustre. And it was observed, that, though it was performed in public, according to the rites and ceremonies then in use, they were presently afterwards, in private, married by ministers ordained by bishops, and according to the form in the book of Common Prayer, and this with the privity of Cromwell.” In 1657, his lordship was made one of the council of state, and sent the next year, by his father-in-law, with a complimentary message to the court of Versailles. This was the only employment Lord Fauconberg had under the usurper; for, as the noble author before mentioned relates, “his domestic delights were lessened every day; he plainly discovered that his son Fauconberg's heart was set upon an interest destructive to his, and grew to hate him perfectly.” Of Lady Fauconberg, Burnet writes: —“She was a wise and worthy woman, more likely to have maintained the post (of protector) than either of her brothers; according to a saying that went of her, “that those who wore breeches deserved petticoats better; but if those in petticoats had been in breeches, they would have held faster.’” That his lordship forwarded the restoration, is evident from his being appointed, by the restored monarch, in 1660, lord-lieutenant of the bishopric of Durham, and in the same year, lord-lieutenant and custus rotulorum of the North Riding of Yorkshire. He was soon afterwards accredited ambassador to the state of Venice and the princes of Italy, and constituted captain of the band of gentleman pensioners. In 1679, Lord Fauconberg was sworn of the privy council ; and, again, in 1689, upon the accession of King Willi AM and Queen MARY, when his lordship was created EAR1.
