About Lady Charlotte


Their eldest brother George, Lord Newport, who later succeeded his father as 3rd Earl of Bradford, married Selina Forester, who was, apart from being a beautiful woman, a very pleasant person and both Lucy and Charlotte both enjoyed her company very much.

Their two other brothers, George, their elder brother, and John, the youngest, both became clergymen. George, later to be Chaplain in Ordinary to Queen Victoria, in 1850 married Emily Bagot, who sadly died in 1850 and which also greaved Charlotte very much. Their younger brother Johnny only married after the death of both Lucy and Charlotte.

Their sister Mary in 1852 married Robert Clive. Their eldest son was created Earl of Plymouth and there was a strong bond between the Windsor-Clives and the Bridgemans.
