Boyle, Richard, 3rd Earl of Burlington (1695 -1753)

Richard Boyle, 3rd Earl of Burlington and 4th Earl of Cork, 5th Baron Clifford, was the son of Charles Boyle, 2nd Earl of Burlington and 3rd Earl of Cork. He succeeded to the title and extensive estates in Yorkshire and Ireland at the age of ten. Known as “the Apollo of the Arts'” and "the architect Earl", he never took more than a passing interest in politics despite his position as a Privy councillor and a member of the House of Lords. Working closely with eminent architects, the Earl was instrumental in the revival of Palladian architecture in England, beginning with his own residence, Burlington House, in London. In 1720 he married Dorothy, daughter of William Savile, 2nd Marquess of Halifax and Mary Finch, daughter of Daniel Finch, 2nd Earl of Nottingham. The couple had two children. Burlington's architectural drawings, inherited by his son-in-law the Duke of Devonshire, are preserved at Chatsworth
