Colonel Charles Churchill.
Colonel Charles Churchill was the natural son of General Churchill, (son of an elder brother of the Great Duke of Marlborough,) by the celebrated actress Mrs. Oldfield. He married Lady Mary Walpole, natural daughter of Sir Robert Walpole, for whom the latter, on his quitting office, procured a patent of precedence as an Earl's daughter. By Lady Mary Walpole, Colonel Churchill was the father of a beautiful family; of whom, Mary married Charles Sloane, first Earl of Cadogan, by whom she was the mother of the present Earl; of Lady Emily married to the Hon. and Rev. Gerard Wellesley ; and of Lady Charlotte married, first, to Sir Henry Wellesley, now Lord Cowley, and secondly, to the present Marquis of Anglesea.

Charles Churchill (c.1720-1812) was the colonel and son of the governor Charles Churchill by Anne Oldfield, Member of Parliament. His grandfather, also Charles Churchill, was a British army officer and brother of the 1st Duke of Marlborough. In 1791, with his encouragement, Nottingham played its first-ever cricket match against Marylebone Cricket Club and was thoroughly dismissed, first by ten wickets and then, with 22 men on the park, by thirteen runs.

Lady Maria Walpole was born illegitimately between 1723 and 1744. She was the daughter of Robert Walpole, 1st Earl of Orford and Maria Skerret. She married Colonel Charles Churchill.

Walpole was created Earl of Orford after he retired from the premiership in 1742, and he used his influence with King George II to have his illegitimate daughter by Lady Walpole, Maria, granted the rank and precedence of an earl’s daughter, so that she became ‘Lady Maria Walpole’. She was born between 1723 and 1734 and later married Colonel Charles Churchill of Chalfont, with whom she had two daughters.
