    On the death of Edward?s great neice Mary, Lady DelaWarr (the daughter of Ferdindando, the son of Edward?s eldest brother Sir William), the representation of the Hudlestons of Millom reverted to Edwards? fourth eldest brother Richard. Richard?s great granddaughter and coheiress Elizabeth Hudleston married Sir Hedworth Williamson, Bt, who in 1774 sold the Millom estate for little more than 20,000 pounds to Sir James Lowther, Bart., by whom it was devised to his successor, the Earl of Lonsdale.

    The seventeenth century was not fortunate for the Hudlestons. The Great Rebellion came. Ferdinand Hudleston had nine sons, every one of whom fought for the king. Sir William, fourteenth lord of Millom, raised a regiment for Charles. John Hudleston was a colonel of Dragoons. The wrong side won, and Millom was sequestrated and its owners heavily fined. The Restoration brought no return for such loyalties. In the last quarter of the century, two Hudlestons died in debtors' prisons.
