Note on Husband: Francis BACON

On 3 March 1620/21 he was sentenced to pay a fine of 40,000, to be imprisioned in the Tower, to be ejected from Parliament and his other offices, and to not come within 12 miles of the Court, all for supposedly accepting bribes. On 12 June 1621 he was released from the Tower, and the fine was returned by the King to trustees for his own use. In October 1621 he was granted a full pardon, although the restriction of 12 miles within the Court was not lifted until 1622.

On his death, all of his titles became extinct.1
