Richard Lovelace was born in 1618. His exact birthplace is unknown, but it is documented that it was either Woolwich, Kent, or Holland . He was the oldest son of Sir William Lovelace and Anne Barne Lovelace and had four brothers and three sisters. His father was from an old distinguished military and legal family.
His mother, Anne Barne (1587-1633), was the daughter of Sir William Barne and Anne Sandys and the granddaughter of Cicely Wilford and Edwin Sandys (archbishop), an Anglican church leader who successively held the posts of the Bishop of Worcester (1559-1570), Bishop of London (1570-1576), and the Archbishop of York (1576-1588). He was one of the translators of the Bishops' Bible. His brother, Francis Lovelace (1621-1675), was the second governor of the New York colony appointed by the Duke of York, later King James II of England.
