  • A portrait at Rensham, Oxfordshire, represents Lady Caesar Adelmare at the time when the Queen came to visit her husband. She shortly afterwards had a child, who, so says that babbling Dame Tradition, was wrapped in a chemise of the virgin Queen, left behind for that purpose, which garment, alas ! was lost within the memory of man by the Chester family. This Lady Caesar was a divorced wife, daughter of Mr. Christopher Grant, and widow of a Mr. Dent of London. Sir Julius had first married Mrs. Dorcas Martin, who died 1595. The child above-mentioned was John Caesar, who died 1647. Sir Julius married, thirdly, Mrs. Anne Hungate, widow, daughter of Sir Henry Woodhouse or Wodehouse, of Waxham, Norfolk. I do not know when she died. She was niece to Sir Francis Bacon, Lord Verulam, her mother, Lady Wodehouse, having been the daughter of Sir Nicholas Bacon, Master of the Rolls, and the great Bacon died in the arms of Sir Julius Caesar, who was sent for to the bedside of his wife's uncle at the house of Lord Arundel, at Highgate, 1626. See Life of Lord Bacon, by Lord Campbell, pp. 425-6. Ed. London, 1846. F. E. C.-D.

  • This family of the Woodhouses is a distinct family from that of Kimberley, and bore, for their arms, quarterly, azure, and ermin, in the first quarter a leopard's head, or; which arms belong to the family of Power, and I find these Woodhouses to be formerly styled Woodhouse, alias Power.
