About Juliana Noel, Viscountess

"When Sir Thomas Overbury’s Account of the Campden Wonder mentions William Harrison’s “mistress”, the lady in question was his employer as steward of the Campden estates, Lady Juliana , Countess Campden.

Born in 1586, Juliana Hicks was the eldest daughter of Sir Baptist Hicks and his wife, Elizabeth May. She is sometimes also referred to as “Julian”, which at this time was normally a female forename and is a variant of the modern girl’s name Gillian or Jillian.

On 20th December 1605, Juliana married Edward Noel, son of Sir Andrew Noel of Brooke , Rutlandshire. When her father died, since there was no male heir, his estate was shared between the two surviving daughters Juliana and her younger sister Mary, wife of Sir Charles Morrison, but Sir Baptist’s titles were inherited by Juliana’s husband Sir Edward Noel and subsequently passed down through the Noel family.

After Sir Edward’s death in 1643, Juliana, as Viscountess dowager of Campden, continued to live at Brooke, where she is said to have “maintained great state and dispensed much hospitality“ (Dictionary of National Biography). It is doubtful whether she ever spent any extended period of time in Chipping Campden.

Juliana died at Brooke on 26 Nov. 1680, and was buried in the family tomb in St James ’ Chipping Campden on 12 Jan. 1681." [http://www.campdenwonder.plus.com/People.htm]
