Administrative/Biographical history:

The Manor of Denham in Buckinghamshire was purchased by Sir Roger Hill in 1670. It was inherited by his daughter Hester, widow of Henry Probert. When she died in 1742 the manor passed to her younger sister Abigail, widow of Edward Lockey. When Abigail died in 1757 her only child, a daughter, was already dead, so the daughter's husband Lewis Way inherited the manor. The manor subsequently remained in the Way family. They lived at Denham Place.
