Short biography
Constance Aston Fowler was a 17-century Catholic Englishwoman. She was born about 1621 to Sir Walter Aston of Tixal Hall in Staffordshire, later created 1st Lord Aston and Baron Forfar, and his wife Gertrude Sadler, a granddaughter of the famous Elizabethan courtier Sir Ralph Sadler. Some time between 1633 and 1635, Constance married Walter Fowler of St. Thomas, Staffordshire. Sources conflict about their children, but they may have had as many as 12. Constance became a manuscript editor and anthologist. In the private poetry anthology she constructed in the 1630s, she mingled poems written by friends and members of her family with those by published poets such as Ben Jonson, Henry King, and John Donne. During the English Civil War, her family took the Royalist side.
