Lady Anne was directly related to Charles II. Her mother, Barbara Villiers (1641–1709), Duchess of Cleveland, had been one of Charles II’s favourite mistresses whom with the king had spent the night of his coronation. Barbara bore the king's child, Lady Anne, in February 1661. One of the Barrett-Lennard family members, Thomas Lennard (1654–1715), 15th Lord Dacre, married Lady Anne Fitzroy (or Palmer) (1661–1722), later Countess of Sussex, in 1673 at Hampton Court.
