Arnorld Joost van Keppel, 1st Earl of Albemarle
by Sir Godfrey Kneller 1
     Arnold Joost van Keppel, 1st Earl of Albemarle was born in 1670. He was the son of Osewolt van Keppel and Reinira Anna Gertruyde van Lintello tot de Mars.2 He married Gertrude de Quirna van der Duyn, daughter of Adam van der Duyn, on 26 June 1701 [15 June 1701 O.S.].3 He died on 30 May 1718 [19 May 1718 O.S.] at The Hague, The Netherlands.3 He was buried at The Hague, The Netherlands.3 His will was probated on 13 July 1721.3
     He gained the title of Baron van Keppel.2 He held the office of Page of Honour to the Prince of Orange in 1688, later King William III.4 He held the office of Groom of the Bedchamber to King William III between 1691 and 1695.4 He was invested as a Knight of Zutphen in 1692.4 He gained the title of Herr van der Voorst, in Guelderland in 1692.2,5 He was invested as a Knight of Holland and West Friesland after 1692.4 He held the office of Master of the Robes between 1695 and 1697.4 King William awarded him (among other personal friends) 108,634 acres of confiscated land in Ireland, even though he was a lad barely of age who had not rendered his adopted country any service. This grant was not upheld by Parliament.4 He gained the rank of Major General in 1697.4 He was created 1st Earl of Albemarle [England] on 10 February 1696/97.4 He was created 1st Baron Ashford, of Ashford, Kent [England] on 10 February 1696/97.4 He was created 1st Viscount Bury, co. Lancaster [England] on 10 February 1696/97.4 He gained the rank of Colonel in 1698 in the service of the 1st troop of Horse Guards.4 He was invested as a Knight, Order of the Garter (K.G.) on 5 June 1700.3 In 1702 he retired to Holland, and took his seat among the Nobles of the States General.3 On 8 March 1701/2 King William III held the Earl in the highest esteem, and bequeathed him, in a codicil annexed to his last will and testament, the Lordship of Breevost, and 200,000 guilders, the only legacy the King gave from the Prince of Nassau-Friezland, whom he had made his heir. He was awarded the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws (LL.D.) by Cambridge University, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England, on 16 April 1705.3 He fought in the Battle of Ramilles in 1706, where he commanded the Dutch forces.3 He fought in the Battle of Oudenarde in 1708, where he commanded the Dutch forces.3 He fought in the Battle of Denain on 13 July 1712, where he was defeated while fighting for the Imperialists, being taken prisoner by the French.3 His last will was dated 29 May 1718.
     Macaulay describes him as having "a sweet and obliging temper, winning manners and a quick, though not a profound understanding. Courage, loyalty, and secrecy, were common between him and Portland."4 J. Drummond writes on 9 December 1710, "he is grown the gentleman of most applications in the service, the most affable and obliging in his behaviour, the best husband and the most regular man in his living that is in the States dominions; only continues pretty expensive in his equipage and housekeeping."3
