    Cecily Bonville, 7th Baroness Harington and 2nd Baroness Bonville was an English peeress. The Bonvilles were loyal supporters of the House of York during the Wars of the Roses. When she was less than a year old, Cecily became the wealthiest heiress in England after her male relatives were slain in battle. Lady Jane Grey, Lady Catherine Grey and Lady Mary Grey were her great-granddaughters. All three were in the Line of Succession to the English throne.
