About the painting used as profile picture for Sir Thomas from My Volunteering :

​On Tuesday 25 March, National Trust staff and volunteers hosted a Press Launch Day in the main entrance hall at Melford Hall. They revealed a fascinating story about the recent discovery and acquisition of a portrait of Sir Thomas Savage. Sir Thomas, 1st Viscount Savage, inherited ownership of Melford Hall in 1602. He was an influential man and held the important post of Chancellor to Queen Henrietta Maria, the wife of King Charles I, from the mid-1620s until his death in 1635.


A portrait of Elizabeth, Countess Rivers - Sir Thomas’ wife - has been exhibited at Melford Hall for many years but no portrait of Sir Thomas had previously been traced.

However, three knowledgeable and enthusiastic volunteers at Melford - John Grey, Trudi Jeffs and Barbara Nessling – were determined to find a painting of Sir Thomas to include in the new Melford Hall story book that they had written.


Volunteers John Grey, Trudi Jeffs and Barbara Nessling


In 2012, whilst searching the internet for references to Elizabeth’s ancestors, John Grey found that a portrait of Lord D’Arcy, Elizabeth’s grandfather, was hanging at Allerton Castle in Yorkshire. The website made reference to a portrait of Sir Thomas Savage hanging next to this picture. In 2012 John visited the Castle to view these paintings. He shared his findings with Dr Lyn Boothman, an archivist working with the tenant of Melford Hall, Sir Richard Hyde Parker. After much research, Lyn discovered how the two portraits had found their way to Allerton Castle. But - apart from confirming that the portrait was of Sir Thomas Savage - there the trail ended.


Nevertheless, this success prompted fresh enthusiasm for the search. In April 2013, Luke Potter, General Manager of Melford Hall, discovered by chance that an imminent auction at Christie’s in London included a painting of Sir Thomas Savage. This painting – originally listed as John Williams, a 17th century Archbishop of York – caused some interest because it showed him sitting with a little red purse bearing the cipher ‘HMR’ (Henrietta Maria Regina). John Williams had never been the Queen’s Chancellor and research by Christie’s revealed that it wasn’t Williams in the picture after all – but Sir Thomas Savage. Comparison with the painting in Yorkshire strongly suggested this was the same man.


With the help of Wendy Monkhouse – the Curator for Melford Hall – Luke ensured that the Trust were able to purchase this painting at auction. Subsequent conservation work has revealed the artist’s signature - Cornelius Johnson – and a date of 1632 which corresponds with the time that Sir Thomas Savage was Chancellor to the Queen.


Thanks to the significant contributions of NT volunteers and staff, a portrait of Sir Thomas Savage can, at last, be displayed at Melford Hall alongside that of his wife Elizabeth – reunited at last.


Thomas Savage, 1st Viscount Savage (circa 1586 – 20 November 1635), known as Sir Thomas Savage, 2nd Baronet from 1615 to 1626, was an English peer and courtier in the court of Charles I.

Savage was the son and heir of Sir John Savage, 1st Baronet and his wife Mary Alington. He succeeded to his father's title shortly before 14 July 1615.[1] In 1616 he served as Deputy Lieutenant of Cheshire and he was knighted in 1617. From 1624 to 1625 he was Steward of the borough of Congleton and in 1626 served as First Commissioner of Trade. On 4 November 1626 he was raised to the peerage as Viscount Savage, of Rocksavage in the Peerage of England.[2] In 1628 he became Chancellor to Queen Henrietta Maria and remained as her councillor until 1634. He was also Ranger of Delamere Forest.

He married Elizabeth Darcy, Countess Rivers, daughter of Thomas Darcy, 1st Earl Rivers and Mary Kitson, on 14 May 1602. By special remainder, Savage was made heir to his father-in-law's titles, but he died before he could inherit them. Savage was succeeded in his titles by his son, John, who later became second Earl Rivers.[3] References

Viscount Savage From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Viscount Savage was a title in the Peerage of England. It was created in 1626 for Sir Thomas Savage, 2nd Baronet, husband of Elizabeth Savage (whom he married in 1602) and heir-apparent by special remainder to his father-in-law's titles of Baron Darcy of Chiche (1613), Viscount Colchester (1621) and Earl Rivers (1626).

He died in 1635 before inheriting these titles, so on the death of Thomas Darcy, 1st Earl Rivers in 1640 the titles went instead to Savage's son John, 2nd Viscount Savage, who became 2nd Earl Rivers. Thomas' widow Elizabeth was created Countess Rivers in her own right in 1641.

The Savage daughters, Dorothy and Elizabeth, were great beauties, painted by Van Dyck. Dorothy married Charles Howard, 2nd Earl of Berkshire, and Elizabeth married Sir John Thimbleby of Irnham.

The Savage viscountcy and baronetcy became extinct along with the Rivers titles in 1737.

John Savage was created baronet, of Rocksavage, Cheshire, on 29 June 1611.[1] Savage Baronets, of Rocksavage (1611)
