From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Philip Wharton, 3rd Baron Wharton (1555 – 1625) was an English peer of the Wharton barony. He was named after his godfather, Philip II of Spain. He inherited the title of Baron when he was 17 years old.

Philip was married three times, first to Frances Clifford, second daughter of Henry Clifford, 2nd Earl of Cumberland in 1577. She died in 1592 and in 1597 he married to Dorothy Colby. He was married a third time after 1602.

Notable in his life was his entertaining King James in 1617 which, as was common in those days, nearly bankrupted him. In 1618 his debts amounted to £16,713 on an annual income of £2,107. Philip died in 1625 and was buried at Healaugh.

The 3rd baron had two sons, Sir George who married Lady Anne Manners of Rutland, daughter of John Manners, Earl of Rutland and Sir Thomas of Aske who died in 1622. Therefore neither son inherited the barony which was passed to Philip, the oldest legitimate son of Sir Thomas.
