Did the Hampden family line continue after John Hampden’s death in 1643?

The direct male line of the Hampden family ended with the suicide of his grandson John Hampden the only son of the Patriot’s only surviving son Richard Hampden. However the family name continued through the female line. The current Earl of Buckinghamshire, Miles Hobart-Hampden, is descended from Hampden’s daughter Mary who married into the illustrious Hobart (pronounced Hub-art) family.
