MILDMAY FANE,

EARL OF WESTMORLAND.

All I can say of this lord, is, that he wrote

A
very

small Book of Poems," which he gave to, and is still preserved in, the library of Emanuel college, Cambridge.

[His lordship succeeded to the title on the death of his father, earl Francis, in 16462, and was made one of the knights of the bath at the coronation of Charles the first. On the breaking out of the rebellion, he took part with that king, and was in his parliament at Oxford; but in 1643, as observed by Whitelock, “ the earl of Westmorland and divers other delinquents came into the parliament, desiring the benefit of the declaration of both kingdoms, for composition: and on April 22, 1645, the earls of Westmorland, Holland, Thanet, Monmouth, and the lord Savile, took the oath appointed by the parliament for such as came in to them, before the commissioners of the great seal 3.” But concurring in the restoration of Charles the second, he was constituted jointly with John, earl of Bridgewater, lord lieutenant of Northamptonshire.
