Personal life

The advantageous union had been arranged since childhood and was happy. The marriage helped him rise politically. They had four children: William, Dorothy, Richard, and George.

These estates include Burlington House, Piccadilly, London (now the Royal Academy of Arts); Chiswick House, London W4; Londesborough Hall, Yorkshire; Bolton Abbey, Yorkshire; Lismore Castle, County Waterford, Ireland.
