Edward Russell 1572-1627
From Book Owners Online
Edward RUSSELL, 3rd Earl of Bedford 1572-1627
Husband of Lucy Russell, Countess of Bedford (1581-1627).
A number of surviving books with variant forms of the Russell armorial crest indicate the existence of a library which has been suggested to be “a joint interest” (Armorials database). Lucy bequeathed books from her own (Harington) family to Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge.
