This chapter details events following the execution of Mary of Scotland on 8 February 1587. Oxford along with others petitioned the English Queen for lands forfeited by Edward Jones, one of the Scottish Queen's attainted partisans. On 13 May Walsingham wrote to Burghley to report success in obtaining the Queen's consent to Oxford's petition for Jones's lands. However, the Queen proposed that the attainted lands should be inheritable by none but Oxford's issue by Anne. Oxford successfully objected that the restriction would inhibit any future sale of the land — evidence of his intention to liquidate the grant. On 1 July Oxford finally received the grant of the attainted lands.
