From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Aubrey de Vere, 20th Earl of Oxford, KG, PC, (28 February 1627 – 12 March 1703) was the son of Robert de Vere, 19th Earl of Oxford and his wife Beatrix van Hemmend.
Aubrey was a Royalist during the English Civil War, and for this he was imprisoned in the Tower of London. He was richly rewarded for his loyalty by Charles II after the Restoration in 1660. He later took the side of William of Orange against James II in the Glorious Revolution.
On 12 April 1647, he married Anne Bayning, a daughter of Paul Bayning, 2nd Viscount Bayning. Anne died in 1659 and Aubrey married Diana Kirke. They had five children:
Charles, died young
Charlotte, died young
Lady Diana de Vere, who married King Charles II's illegitimate son, Charles Beauclerk, Duke of St Albans.
Mary, died unmarried
Henrietta, died unmarried
Since he had no surviving sons, he became the last de Vere Earl of Oxford, one of the longest-lived peerages in the country. The first de Vere earl had received his title from the Empress Matilda in 1141.
