Anne Clifford died in 1676, full of years and honours, ‘the great wise woman’ of Bishop Rainbow’s funeral oration, ‘fitter for a history than a sermon’. The history had to wait 300 years, for Martin Holmes to write this book, but she was not forgotten and indeed, is referred to as if but recently departed in Craven, where she was born; in Kent where she was mistress of Knole; in Wiltshire, where she saw the rebuilding of Wilton under Inigo Jones; and, most of all, in Westmorland where, in her several ancestral castles, she spent her indomitable old age.

Born in 1590, daughter of Queen Elizabeth’s Champion, the Earl of Cumberland, she had been in succession Countess of Dorset and of Pembroke; but, in any age when women were merely their husband’s obident chattels, she remained steadfastly herself and her father’s daughter. She defied King James, she defied Cromwell and survived them and her husbands to leave an indelible mark and memory in the places and among the people who knew her.
