Sarah Lennox, the daughter of Charles Lennox, 2nd Duke of /Richmond/ , Duke d'Aubigny 1734- by his wife Sarah /Cadogan/

was firstly married to Thomas Charles /Bunbury/ , Knt and 6th Bnt; G
on 2 Jun 1762
which Marriage dissolved by Act of Parliament in 1776

Being curious on why she should be married to a person of apparently such a lowly position, I looked at what Leo has on him

There we have that his mother is called Eleanor Graham and said to be the daughter of Vere Graham. I do not think this is correct.

Vere Graham, otherwise Henry Vere Graham was married to a lady named Catherine, and she herself comes to court to claim that she is one of the four co-heiresses of their father Samuel WARNER who is called lately deceased then in 1735

Among the other three co-heiresses is one Eleanor, who claims one-fourth and is called spinster, but then later in the case is called explicitely Eleanor the wife of William Bunbury

Upon further review of the specific descent of the fourths and thirds (as it were), I believe that the actual case is this

Samuel Warner died with four co-heiresses
ONE of these was Catherine Warner, then already married to Vere Graham. *This* Catherine herself was living in 1735, but dead in 1736 herself leaving... four co-heiresses.

One of those last was Eleanor (Graham) who 16 Mar 1736 Higham-by-Nayland, co Suff (Batch M09881 wj) married William Bunbury
