About Edward Russell, 3rd Earl of Bedford

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Russell,_3rd_Earl_of_Bedford

The above site states "He died in 1627, aged 54 at Moore Park, Hertfordshire, England, without surviving issue."

This is at obvious odds with the history George A Russell left.

The following agrees with the first, leaving any lineage collected from this point back very questionable.

http://www.1911encyclopedia.org/Earls_and_dukes_of_Bedford

Francis Russell, 2nd earl of Bedford:

He was succeeded as 3rd earl by his grandson, Edward (1572-1627), only son of Francis, Lord Russell (c. 1550-1585).

The 3rd earl left no children when he died on the 3rd of May 1627, and was succeeded by his cousin.

Another site giving the biography of Edward's wife states: He was an invalid and she largely led her own life.(see Lucy's bio)
