    EARLDOM OF RIVERS (IV, 1)

    BARONY OF DARCY OF CHICHE (III)

    THOMAS (DARCY), BARON DARCY OF CHICHE, son and heir, born about 1565. He was summoned to Parliament 15 September 1586. His only son and heir apparent, Thomas Darcy, having died s.p. in his lifetime, his son-in-law, Sir Thomas SAVAGE, husband of his 1st daughter, Elizabeth, obtained, 8 October 1613, a "grant of the reversion of the dignity (of Baron Darcy of Chiche] from the death of Thomas, the present Baron without heirs male of his body," with remainder to the heirs male of his own body by the said Elizabeth, his wife. On 5 July 1621, he, under the style of "Thomas, Lord Darcy, Baron of Chiche," was created "VISCOUNT COLCHESTER, co. Essex, for life [sic], with reversion to [the said] Thomas Savage, Knt. and Bart., one of the Gentlemen of the Chamber, husband of Elizabeth, da. of Thomas, Lord Darcy, and to the heirs male of his body by the said Elizabcth," and finally he was created, 4 November 1626, EARL RIVERS, with remainder "to the heirs male of his body, with rem. to Thomas Savage Knt. and Bart. and the heirs male of his body," the said Thomas Savage being himself created, at the same date, Viscount Savage.

    He married, shortly before 20 April 1583 (articles dated 16 April), Mary, daughter and heir of Sir Thomas KITSON, of Hengrave, Suffolk, by Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Thomas CORNWALLIS. He died s.p.m.s., 21 February 1639/40, in London, aged about 74, and was buried at St. Osyth's. At his death the Barony of Darcy of Chiche [1551] became extinct. His widow died between 7 May and 28 June 1644, and was buried in Trinity Church, Colchester.

    Note.-The reversion of the Barony of Darcy of Chiche, granted 8 October 1613, as above mentioned, with a special remainder in favour of Thomas Savage, &c., was not inherited by the said Thomas, in consequence of his death, 20 Nov. 1635, in the lifetime of (Earl Rivers) the then Lord, but devolved (together with that Earldom, &c.) to daughter Elizabeth.
