This chapter presents a January 1602 letter by Oxford for Cecil expressing his increasing frustration over Sir Charles Danvers' estates. Oxford claimed that he was promised Danvers' lands in Wiltshire and Gloucestershire; he still hopes to get them, with Cecil's help. However, the Danvers lands were to be restored to Charles' brother, Henry, following the accession of James in 1603. Oxford was also once again passed over for the Order of the Garter without garnering a single vote.

Keywords:   Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Charles Danvers, lands, Order of the Garter
