This chapter focuses on events during Oxford's final year in 1604. It presents a 30 January letter written by Oxford to the King, expressing his gratitude for Waltham Forest and Havering Park, and his anger towards interim keeper, Sir John Gray. On 18 June Oxford ‘granted the custody of the Forest of Essex to his son–in–law, Francis Lord Norris, and to his cousin Sir Francis Vere’. Like his father before him, Oxford was settling his affairs in anticipation of death. Long burdened by infirmity, Oxford died on 24 June, and was buried on 6 July in the churchyard of St John–at–Hackney.

Keywords:   Francis Lord Norris, Waltham Forest, Havering Park, John Gray, death
