"Little is known of Throckmorton’s parliamentary career save that on 5 Mar. 1589 he was licensed to depart. As knight of the shire he may have attended the subsidy committee, 11 Feb. 1589. His private life was as stormy as the rest of his career, complicated by a wife (refers to 2nd wife) and daughter (refers to 1st wife) ‘obstinately addicted to Popery’. At one point he appears to have turned his wife out of doors, and refused to provide for her until ordered by the Council to do so.4"

"Lady Dale’s father had taken as his second wife, the daughter of another Privy Council member, Sir Edward Rodgers.   Edward Rodgers was involved in the Lady Jane Grey affair and executed along with John Throckmorton of Tortworth who apparently was an uncle of Lady Dale. ..."
