Francis Boyle, 1st Viscount Shannon (1623–1699): the Hon. Francis Boyle, fourth son of Richard Boyle, 1st Earl of Cork was created a Viscount in 1660. He married Elizabeth Killigrew, the sister of Thomas Killigrew, the dramatist who joined Charles II during his period of exile and later became Master of the Revels, and daughter of Sir Robert Killigrew. She came to the king's attention through her position as maid-of-honour to Henrietta Maria of France (Charles II's mother) her marriage was regarded as no bar to her also becoming the king's mistress.
