Footnotes

  • A portrait of Henry Rich, the future 2nd Lord Kensington (1642-1659) as a young man, which was painted circa 1658, is at Berkeley Castle. Since the present portrait shows the sitter as an infant in 1656, when Henry would have been fourteen years old, it would appear that the later inscription is incorrect.
