James Radcliffe, 3rd Earl of Derwentwater (1689-1716) and Charles Radcliffe, 5th Earl
of Derwentwater (1693-1746), were fervent Jacobites who were executed, respectively,
at the Tower after the 1715 and 1745 uprisings. In 1731 the family estate on the shore
of Derwentwater was seized by the crown and the timber was cleared to help raise funds
for the Greenwich hospital.
