This chapter describes Edward de Vere's infancy and childhood. Edward was born on Saturday 12 April 1550, probably at Castle Hedingham. Like Oxford heirs before and after, the child was styled Lord Bolbec, derived from Isabel de Bolebec, wife of the 3rd Earl. Lord Bolbec grew up in rural Essex, his nurses and servants supervised by the Countess Margery.

Keywords:   Edward de Vere, Lord Bolbec, infancy, childhood, Countess Margery
