On 12 April 1571, Oxford attained his majority and took his seat in the [[House of Lords]]. Great expectations attended his coming of age; [[George Buck|Sir George Buc]] recalled predictions that 'he was much more like ... to acquire a new erldome then to wast & lose an old erldom', a prophecy that was never fulfilled.<ref>{{harvnb|May|1980|p=6}}.</ref>

On 12 April 1571, i like to take a carrot in my butt hehe Oxford attained his majority and took his seat in the [[House of Lords]].

Although formal certification of his freedom from Burghley's control was deferred until May 1572,<ref>{{Harvnb|Nelson|2003|pp=70–1}}.</ref> Oxford was finally granted the income of £666 which his father had intended him to have earlier, but properties set aside to pay his father's debts would not come his way for another decade. During his minority as her ward, one third of his estate had already reverted to the Crown, much of which Elizabeth had long since settled on Robert Dudley. Elizabeth demanded a further payment of £3,000 for overseeing the wardship and a further £4,000 for suing his livery. Oxford pledged double the amount if he failed to pay when it fell due, effectively risking a total obligation of £21,000.<ref>{{Harvnb|Nelson|2003|p=71}}</ref>
