Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James Radclyffe, 3rd Earl of Derwentwater (26 June 1689 - 24 February 1716) was an English Jacobite, executed for treason. His death is remembered in an English traditional ballad, "Lord Allenwater," collected by Ralph Vaughan Williams in 1904 from the singing of Emily Stears. He was the son of Edward Radclyffe, 2nd Earl of Derwentwater and Lady Mary Tudor, the natural daughter of Charles II by Moll Davis. He was brought up at the exile court of St Germain as a companion to the young prince, James Francis Edward Stuart (the 'Old Pretender' after his father James II died), and remained there at the wish of Queen Mary of Modena, until his father's death in 1705. He succeeded to the family titles and estates in Northumberland on the death of his father in 1705.
