  • Note: Richard Bennet owned Kew House (or White House) - later remodelled for Frederick, Prince of Wales, the son of George II. 3
  • Note:
    According to Babraham-village.net, the brothers Richard and Thomas Bennet (who had married two sisters) purchased the manor and estate of Babraham from Tobias Palvacino (son of Sir Horatio Palavicino) who had squandered everything he inherited.
    From British History Online:
    Sir Henry Palavicino (kt. 1611) had livery of the lands in 1614, but died without issue in 1615. His successor, his brother Tobias, rapidly dissipated the family fortune, and obtained an Act of Parliament in 1624 to enable him to sell his lands.
    Tobias sold his whole Babraham estate in 1632 to Richard and Thomas Bennet, sons of a London alderman, and their mother-in-law Elizabeth Lamott. Thomas Bennet's estate was sequestered in 1651 for his support of Charles I, and in 1660 he was created a baronet.
    From Kelly's Directory of Cambridgeshire, 1929:
    In the south aisle of the church of St Peter is a marble monument, with two figures, to Richard Bennet esq. ob. 1658, and Sir Thomas Bennet bart. ob. 1667, who were formerly owners of the parish. 4 5 6
