    Sir Richard Paulet (c 1558–1614) was the grandnephew of William Paulet (1474/5?–1572), first marquess of Winchester and longtime lord treasurer under three Tudor monarchs. Richard Paulet inherited estates at Herriard, south of Basingstoke, and Freefolk, near Whitchurch. He served multiple times as sheriff of Hampshire and in parliament for Whitchurch. Thomas Jervoise became Paulet's ward in 1601, and eventually his adopted heir and son-in-law. For further details see the section on Hampshire families in Historical Background.
