JAMES ANNESLEY (IV), 3RD EARL OF ANGLESEY AND 4TH VISCOUNT (1670-1702)

Scope and Content

James Annesley (IV) was the eldest son

of James (III), the 3nd Earl of

Anglesey, and inherited his father's

titles in 1690. He married an

illegitimate daughter of James II, but,

as will be seen the marriage broke down

when she left him on account of his

cruelty.

James (IV) only had a daughter, and his

titles therefore passed to his brother

John (II).

The papers in this section concern the

settlement of his Irish property, his

separation from his wife, and his will

and the payment of his legacies.
