About Elizabeth Barry

Lady Elizabeth Savage was the daughter of Richard Savage, 4th Earl Rivers and Penelope Downes.1

She married Lt.-Gen. James Barry, 4th Earl of Barrymore, son of Richard Barry, 2nd Earl of Barrymore and Dorothy Ferrar, in June 1706, unknown to her father.1

Her father, Barrymore’s father-in-law, Lord Rivers (Richard Savage, 4th Earl Rivers), had died in 1712, his will making no mention of his only legitimate daughter, Lady Barrymore, and leaving his estates in Lancashire, Cheshire, Yorkshire and Essex to his cousin, and the inheritor of the title, John Savage, a Roman Catholic priest, and after him to a natural daughter. Barrymore at once challenged the settlement and secured possession of Wardley in Lancashire and consequently control of the Rivers interest at Wigan.
