Ludlow

Death of Edward IV

The History of King Richard the Third. As soon as the King was departed, that noble Prince his son drew toward London, who at the time of his father’s death kept household at Ludlow in Wales. Such country, being far off from the law and recourse to justice, was begun to be far out of good will and had grown up wild with robbers and thieves walking at liberty uncorrected. And for this reason the Prince was, in the life of his father, sent thither, to the end that the authority of his presence should restrain evilly disposed persons from the boldness of their former outrages. To the governance and ordering of this young Prince, at his sending thither, was there appointed Sir Anthony Woodville, Lord Rivers and brother unto the Queen, a right honorable man, as valiant of hand as politic in counsel. Adjoined were there unto him others of the same party, and, in effect, every one as he was nearest of kin unto the Queen was so planted next about the Prince.

Willey

Willey Park Willey

My Recollections by Adeline Horsey Countess Cardigan 1824 1915 Chapter V: Country House Visits. From Badminton we went on a visit to Lord Forester at Willey Park, Shropshire, where I met Lady Jersey (72) and her daughter, Lady Clementina Villiers (34).
Lady Jersey was the greatest grande dame in London Society, and her house in Berkeley Square was the centre of the Tory party. She knew all the artistic and literary celebrities of the day, and her popularity was most remarkable. Lady Clementina Villiers (34) was a beautiful and accomplished girl, and everybody loved her. Once when some one said to her father (84) that " no one was perfect," Lord Jersey (84) replied : " There is one who is perfect — there is Clementina (34)." Many suitors proposed for her, a most persistent one being the Duke d'Ossuna, a grandee of Spain, and an immensely rich man. He must have been deeply in love with the beautiful English girl, for he used to keep many drawings and portraits of Lady Clementina in his palace at Madrid.
"Those whom the gods love die young," and so it was with Clementina Villiers ; she was taken ill during a visit to Germany with her mother and only returned to England to die..
Her portraits were in all the " Books of Beauty " of the day, but although they faithfully portray her perfect features, they cannot convey the beauty of colour and changing expression that were her greatest charms.
