This chapter details events that occurred after Oxford's eighteenth birthday on 12 April 1568. These include the death of Countess Margery on 2 December 1568, who was buried at Earls Colne, alongside her first husband. The indenture signed by the 16th Earl before his death, required his son, on his eighteenth birthday, choose for wife either Elizabeth or Mary Hastings. The day came and went with no known interest on either side. Oxford remained at Cecil House, joined by twelve–year–old Edward, Lord Zouch, whose wardship would last until 1577. Some of Oxford's preoccupations in his twentieth year are also revealed in expense accounts certified by John Hart, Chester Herald, over three successive quarters from 1 January to 30 September 1570.
