Christopher Villiers, first Earl of Anglesey (d. 1630) courtier to James I. Villiers was probably an alcoholic, because in 1625 it was rumoured that he had been 'banished the court ... the King saying he would have no drunkards of his chamber'. Nevertheless, in 1628 he was appointed keeper of Hampton Court, and in 1629 of Bushey Park.
