Killigrew, William, Thomas, and Henry, three brothers, sons of Sir Robert Killigrew, who suffered much in the cause of Charles I., but were amply recompensed after the Restoration. Both Sir William (1606-95) and Thomas (1612-83), who from his familiarity with Charles II. became known as the "king's jester," were dramatists of note in their day. Henry's daughter was the "Mistress Anne Killigrew" (1660-85) of Dryden's elegy, "excellent in the two sister arts of poetry and painting."
