About 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.


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)
