  • Elizabeth Talbot, Countess of Shrewsbury (c. 1521[1] – 13 February 1608[2][self-published source?]), known as Bess of Hardwick, was the daughter of John Hardwick, of Hardwick Hall in Derbyshire and Elizabeth Leeke, daughter of Thomas Leeke and Margaret Fox.[1] She was married four times, firstly to Robert Barlow, who died in his teens; secondly to the courtier Sir William Cavendish; .....
  • She remained single until 20 August 1547, when she married the twice-widowed Sir William Cavendish, Treasurer of the King's Chamber,[3] who had two daughters and was more than twice her age, and became Lady Cavendish. The wedding took place at two in the morning, at the home of the Grey family, who became friends of the Cavendish duo. Sir William's fortune had been made by the dissolution of monasteries, since he was an official of the Court of Augmentations he selected choice properties. Probably acting on her advice, Sir William sold his lands in the south of England and bought the Chatsworth estates in her home Derbyshire.
  • Eight children were born of the marriage, two of whom died in infancy. Of the six who survived, three were sons ('Henry 1550-1616', William 1551-1626 and Charles 1553-1617) and three daughters (Frances b.1548, Elizabeth 1555-1582 and Mary 1556-1632). William was the forebear of the Dukes of Devonshire and Charles of the Dukes of Newcastle.[5] Queen Elizabeth I was godmother to their first son, Henry, and Queen Mary I of England was godmother to their third son, Charles.[3] Sir William Cavendish died on 25 October 1557, leaving Bess widowed a second time.
  • With the approval of Queen Elizabeth, who was not by habit a matchmaker, Bess was married in 1568 for the fourth time to George Talbot, 6th Earl of Shrewsbury, one of the premier aristocrats of the realm, with seven children from his first marriage, and became Countess of Shrewsbury. Two of his children married two of hers in a double ceremony in February 1568 : Bess's daughter Mary Cavendish, aged 12, married Shrewsbury's eldest son Gilbert, aged 16; Bess's son 'Sir Henry Cavendish, aged 18, married Shrewsbury's daughter Lady Grace Talbot, aged 8.'
