Radcliffe, James Bartholomew, 4th Earl of Newburgh (1725 -1787)

James Bartholomew Radcliffe was born in France, 23 August 1725, the eldest son of Charles Radcliffe, third son of the 2nd Earl of Derwentwater, and Charlotte Maria, suo jure Countess of Newburgh. He claimed the Derwentwater estates, forfeited by his uncle, the 2nd Earl, for his part in the Jacobite rising of 1715, under settlements, whereby his father, who had been taken at sea during the 1745 uprising, and executed 8 December 1746, had been made tenant for life, with remainder to his first and other sons in tail male, but his claims were compromised under the Act of Parliament that vested the estates under trustees for the use of Greenwich Hospital. He married, in 1749, Barbara, eldest daughter and eventual sole heir of Anthony Kempe of Slindon in Sussex through whom he inherited some or all of her father's books. He died 2 January 1787 and was succeeded by his only son Anthony James, 5th Earl of Newburgh.
