Footnotes

  • Crest is for FANE/VANE. This comes from the wife's side of the family and the husband was a Baronet.

    It is engraved for the marriage on 27 November 1765 of Sir Thomas STAPLETON, 5th baronet of Rotherfield Greys, Henley on Thames, Oxon to Mary, daughter of Henry FANE of Wormsley, Henley on Thames and niece of the Earl of Westmorland.

    Wormsley Park is a 2,500 acre estate and 18th century country house between Stokenchurch and Watlington in the Chiltern Hills of Buckinghamshire, England. It is the former home of the philanthropist Sir Paul Getty who moved to Wormsley in 1986. He undertook a restoration which lasted until 1991, and lived there until his death in 2003.

    Originally owned by the Scrope family since the late 16th century the estate belonged to Colonel Adrian Scrope the regicide. The house and estate was passed to his grandson John Scrope a baron of the Exchequer and as Scrope died without issue, his estate of Wormsley passed to the descendants of his sister Anne (died 1720), who had married Henry Fane of Brympton. The Fane family retained ownership of the house and estate until 1986 when they sold it to Sir Paul Getty. Getty built a cricket ground based on Lords, a library to accommodate his book collection and a theatre where performances were held for invited guests. In the summer months, Garsington Opera's annual festival is held on the grounds of the park.
