James Howard third Earl of Suffolk had 3 wives.
He firstly married in 1640 Susan third daughter of Henry Rich Earl of Holland,
secondly married in 1650 Barbara daughter of Sir Edward Villiers and
thirdly married in 1682 Lady Anne Montague eldest daughter of Robert third Earl of Manchester (who was son of the Second Earl of Manchester the first cousin of Mountagu "my Lord," Earl of Sandwich in the diary).
So at the time of the diary he was married to Barabara Villiers (per Phil's entry above) she is referred to as Duchesse of Suffolk in the entry for 26 July 1662.
The reference by Anonymous to the marriage to Lady Charlotte Byle relates to a different James Howard. This James Howard was the nephew of the third Earl of Suffolk being the only son of Thomas, second son of the second Earl of Suffolk.
