Venetia Digby

Sir Kenelm had several pictures of her by Van Dyck, &c. He had her hand cast in plaster and her feet and face. See Ben Johnson's 2d volume, where he has made her live in poetry, in his drawing of her both body and mind :

Sitting, and ready to be drawn,

What makes these tiffany, silks, and lawn,

Embroideries, feathers, fringes, lace,

When every limb takes like a face! Etc

When these verse were made she had three children by sir Kenelm, who are there mentioned, viz. Kenelm, George and John.

She died in her bed, suddenly. Some suspected she was poisoned.
