She was the daughter of James Harington of Exton and Lucy Sidney. In 1581 at St. Benet Fink, London, she married Edward Sutton, 5th baron Dudley. Their children were Anne (1582-December 8, 1615), Theodosia (b.1584 d.yng.), Mary (October 2, 1586-May 24, 1645), Ferdinando and Margaret (1597-December 13, 1621+). In 1597, Theodosia brought charges against her husband with the Privy Council. They had separated and he'd promised support money but had not honored the agreement. He was ordered to pay Theodosia £66 to cover the period since May 1st (twenty-two weeks) and to pay the bills for boarding and educating his children. In addition, he was told to pay £100 per annum for his wife's maintenance, for life, "unless it shall please God to put their minds to cohabit together." Ferdinand, Mary, and Anne would receive £10 per annum and Margaret, an infant, £10. He was also to repay a loan to Sir John Harington and appear before the council again in November.
