HE noble Lord whose various transactions in

life are recorded in the following pages, was the eldest son of William Earl of Derby, and the seventh Earl of his family. He married Charlotte daughter of Claud de la Trovers, by Charlotte' his wife, daughter to the renowned Count William of Nassau Prince of Orange, by his wife Charlotte de Bourbon of the royal house of France; by which marriage he stood relied to the Kings of France, and to the Houses of Bourbon, Monpellier, Conde, Dukes of Anjou, Kings of Naples and Sicily, Arch Duke of Austria, Kings of Spain, Earls and Dukes of Savoy, Dukes of Milan, and to most of sovereign Princes in Europe.

He was called to Parliament by writ from King Charles I. in the year 1627, being the third of his reign, by the stile and title of Sir James Stanley, Knight of the Bath, and Chevaliere de Strange, without any local place, and as such fat in the House of Peers several Parliaments, when his father sat there as Earl

of Derby.

Sir William Dugdale says of this noble Peer, that setting aside the great state he lived in, and his wonderful hospitality and beneficence to his neighbours, friends and servants, he was a person highly accomplished with learning, prudence, loyalty, and true

valour';
