William was born in Leicester, removed to London in 1574 to reside with his brother Nicholas, then an eminent banker in Cheapside. He attached himself to the court and was known as a man of great abilitis and remarkably handsome. He was high in the confidence of Queen Elizabeth, as well as of King James, and by honorable service to both, acquired large properties. He was a member of Parliament between 1601 and 1630, knighted in 1605. Beau Manor Park was purchased by Sir William and has been in the possession of his descendants for over 275 years. It is the "headquarters" for the Herrick race. (Wikipedia)
William's picture at Beau Manor exhibits him with a picked beard, a large ruff, and in a white satin doublet, which he used on Christmas day, attending Queen Elizabeth. He wears a sword and over his dress hangs loosely a large black cloak. In one hand are his gloves, the other, elevated to his breast, holds the stump and tassells of his ruff. Under the photo is His motto "Sola supereminet virtus" Anno Dom. 1628, Aetatis suae 66.
