    Younger son.
    Succeeded his brother George who died 1605 spms (portrait in Met Musem, New York), as Earl. His niece Anne inherited the barony of Clifford de jure.
    His son Henry, was the fifth and last Earl of the Clifford family, had a daughter was married to the Earl of Cork, from whom is descended the present Duke of Devonshire, who possesses this estate.
    Built Londesborough House, Yorkshire.
    Although based in Chester, the artist John Souch became, after the manner of the time, a peripatetic painter, travelling to client's houses within an area bounded by Shropshire to the South and Yorkshire to the North, and undertaking commissions, either heraldic or portraiture, on the spot. Thus he was paid 30 shillings in 1620 for a portrait of Francis Clifford, Fourth Earl of Cumberland (whereabouts unknown), executed at Skipton Castle. (This is the first record of him as an independent artist.)
    Burke says that his brother George died in 1605 in ?the Dutchy-house, in the Savoy, London?, and that Francis? died in the same apartment? but maybe he measn the same apartment as he was born in, in Skipton Castle.
