Residence, Lattendales, Penrith. The Rich's were originally of Hampshire. In 1284, John le Rich, of Rich Place, Hants, flourished ; his great-grandson, Richard Rich, an opulent mercer of London, was sheriff of that city, 1441 ; his great- grandson, Sir Richard Rich, Solicitor-Gen, to Henry VIII., was, upon the accession of Edward VI., created in Feb. 1547 Baron Rich, of Leeze, co. Essex and in Nov. of that year was constituted Lord High Chancellor of England, and in 1564 founded a Grammar School at Felstead in Ea>oc ; his great- frandson, Robert Rich, P.C., 2nd Earl of Warwick, a very distinguished personage during the Civil Var, was Lord High Admiral of England, and Lord Lieut, of Norfolk and Essex : the Long Parliament conferred upon him the exceptional honour of voting that he should be created a Duke, and he would have been promoted to that dignity had the treaty between Charles I. and the Parliament been com- pleted. The Earl's younger brother, Sir Henry, K.G. (owner of Holland House, Kensington), the most accomplished courtier of his time, having in 1622 been created Baron Kensington, was successively employed to negotiate a marriage between Prince Charles (afterwards Charles I.) and the Spanish Infanta, and to sound the French Court regarding a consort for the Prince : in 1624, he was advanced to the dignity of Earl of Holland ; he subsequently took up arms for the Royal Cause, for which in 1649 he suffered decapitation before the gates of Westminster Hall. The Earldoms of Warwick and Holland became united in 1673, and in 1759 they expired. Charles, 4th son of Sir Edward Rich, 3rd son of the 2nd Baron Rich, was created a baronet in 1675, which title passed by special limitation to his son-in-law, Robert Rich, a Lord of the Admiralty, and M.P. for Dunwich, temp. William III. ; his 2nd son. Field Marshal Sir Robert, the 4th baronet, was successively M.P. for Dunwich, Beeralston, and St. Ives ; Col. 4th Dragoons, and Governor of Chelsea Hospital ; he died 1768, and was succeeded by his son, Sir Robert, 5th baronet, at whose death in 1785 the baronetcy expired, and the estates devolved upon his only daughter Mary Frances, wife of the Rev. Charles Bostock, LL.D. (descended from Sir Osmer de Bostock, temp., William I.), of Shirley House, Hants, who in 1790 assumed, by royal license, the surname and arms of Rich, and was in 1791 created a baronet.
