No, the lady has the same first name as the landlady played by Yootha Joyce in "Man about the House".

Yes it's Mildred Cecil (née Cooke), Lady Burghley! Her sister Anne was the mother of Sir Francis Bacon.

Joint effort by Kimberly (TV knowledge) and Prince_Lieven.

That was a good one, Bell! Star for myself and Kim then!  :)



BTW, after 24 pages, I am having a little trouble loading this thread when I want to reply - are there any objections to 'Name that Tudor era person part 2'?
