Countess of Suffolk

Daughter of George Home, 1st and last Earl of Dunbar, and Elizabeth Gordon. Paternal granddaughter of Sir Alexander Home of Manderston, Berwickshire, by his wife Janet. Maternal granddaughter of Sir Alexander Gordon and Agnes Bethune.

Elizabeth was a great heiress at the time of her marriage in March 1612 to Theophilius Howard. Her father left two daughters upon his death in 1611, and Elizabeth inherited half of his wealth as a result.

She was the mother of nine surviving children.

Her husband survived her by seven years.

The Countess of Suffolk is buried in the Howard Vault. The vault, now completely bricked in, was closed in 1860.
