Edward Noel (1641-1689) succeeded as fourth Viscount, and was created Earl of Gainsborough on 1 Dec 1682.
In 1661 he had married Elizabeth, eldest daughter of Thomas Wriothesley, fourth Earl of Southampton, from whom in 1667 she inherited the Titchfield (Hampshire) estate. On the death of the second Earl of Gainsborough, however, in 1690 this estate passed to his daughters, who married respectively the first Duke of Portland and the second Duke of Beaufort.
The Gainsborough papers contain very little material for this important but transient possession, which is documented chiefly in that section of the Portland papers kept by Hampshire Record Office. (The property was held jointly between 1690 and 1739 but managed by the Portland stewards.)
Do not be confused with Charles Noel, 1st Earl of Gainsborough of the 2nd creation (1781-1866), whose children were painted by Watts in 1841.
