Countess of Anglesey

Daughter of Paul Bayning, 1st Viscount Bayning of Sudbury, and Anne Glemham.

Mary was first married to William Villiers, 2nd Viscount Grandison of Limerick, in 1639. The union produced a daughter, Barbara Villiers, who would marry the Earl of Castlemaine in 1659 and become 1st Duchess of Cleveland in her own right.

After the Viscount's death at the Battle of Bristol in 1643, Mary wed his cousin Charles Villiers, 2nd Earl of Anglesey, in 1648. They had no children, and the earl died in 1661.

The widowed Countess lastly married Arthur Gorges, Esquire, with whom she is buried in Chelsea Old Church.

Mary's grandchildren were fathered by Charles II, and included the Countess of Sussex, the Duke of Southampton, the Duke of Grafton, the Countess of Lichfield and the Duke of Northumberland.

Her many descendants include Diana, Princess of Wales, and Sir Anthony Eden, British Prime Minister.
