    Harriet Rushout was one of the celebrated society beauties known as 'The Three Graces' who were born to John Rushout, Baron Northwick of Northwick Park (1738-1800) and his wife, Rebecca (see the preceeding lot). Harriet married Sir Charles Cockerell, 1st Bt. on 13 February 1808 and the couple had a son, Charles Cockerell Rushout, 2nd Bt. (1809-1869) and a daughter, Harriet Anne (b.1812). The Cockerell (later Rushout) Baronetcy, of Sezincote in Gloucester, was created on 25 September 1809 for Sir Charles. The title became extinct upon the death of the Cockerells' great-grandson, Sir Charles Hamilton Rushout, 4th Bt. (1868-1931).
