John Holles, 1st Earl of Clare

He was the son of Denzel Holles of Irby upon Humber and Eleanor Sheffield (daughter of Edmund Sheffield, 1st Lord of Butterwicke). His great-great-grandfather was William Hollyes, Lord Mayor of London.

Holles married Anne Stanhope on 23 May 1591 in Shelford, Nottinghamshire. Through his marriage to Anne, in around 1613 he inherited Thurland Hall in Nottingham which was also known as Clare Place. The family seat was at Haughton Hall in the parish of Bothamsall. Haughton Hall was demolished in the late eighteenth century.

He was comptroller of the household of Prince Henry until the prince's untimely death on 6 November 1612.

He was created 1st Baron Haughton on 9 July 1616 and 1st Earl of Clare on 2 November 1624.

He was Member of Parliament for Nottinghamshire from 1604 to 1611 and 1614 to 1616.
