only son 
eighth Baron of 
his family, by Mary, a natural daughter to Sir Edward Poynings, Knight of 
the Garter. He was born in 1512, and, at the death of his father, Within 
live years after, fell in Wardship to the crown. Educated in the court, his 
youth was passed in those magnificent and romantic amusements which dis- 
tinguished the beginning of Henryls reign, nor was it till 1544 that he appeared 
as a public character: ,In that year he attended the Earl of Hertford, and 
Dudley, Lord Lisle, in their expedition to Scotland, and is said to have then
