Upon George's death three years later, his son-in-law, James (who had changed his surname to Forrester) inherited the title. James' only child by George's daughter had died in 1652 and though he had further issue by his second wife, Lady Jean Ruthven (daughter of the 1st Earl of Brentford), upon his own death in 1679, the title passed to his younger brother, William as stipulated by the second remainder (b). William's son (who also changed his surname to Forrester) inherited the title in 1681 and it continued in the male line until the death of the seventh Lord in 1763, when it passed to the sixth Lord's sister, Caroline. Her only daughter, Anna inherited the title in 1784 and it then passed to Anna's first cousin-once-removed, Viscount Grimston (later Earl of Verulam) in 1808, with which family the title continues to be held by to this day.
