About Richard Herbert Orpen

The story about Orpen being a Royalist and falling at Naseby is either another family or a fairy story. It has got linked to the Orpens of Killowen in error and compounded by Burke.

Robert Orpen, father of Robert that married Lucy Chichester, died of the plague in October 1645 in Shaftesbury, along with his wife and daughters. Robert and Lucy's son Richard Orpen who was sponsored by the iron magnate, Sir William Petty, probably rewrote his family history with lots of gloss.
