Notes for John PAKINGTON

From the Dictionary of National Biography, volume 43: John Pakington (1600-1624), born in 1600, was created a baronet in June 1620, and sat in parliament for Aylesbury in 1623-4. He married Frances, daughter of Sir John Ferrers of Tamworth, by whom he had one son, John (1620-1680), who succeeded to the title, and is separately noticed, and one daughter (Elizabeth), who married, first, Colonel Henry Washington, and, secondly, Samuel Sandys of Ombersley in Worcestershire. Pakington died in October 1624, and was buried at Aylesbury. His widow married at St. Antholin, Budge Row, London, on 29 Dec, 1626, 'Mr. Robert Leasly, gent.' (Harl. Soc. Publ. Reg. viii. 61). The similarity of name may account for the improbable statement frequently made that she became the second wife of Alex- ander Leslie, first earl of Leven [q. v.]
