Lady Clive would have either been the wife of Robert Clive, created 1st Lord Clive of Plassey and `Clive of India' or the wife of his son Edward Clive, 2nd Lord Clive, created 1st Earl of Powis -------- Near henley: http://www.oxfordshirepast.net/hen_mansites.html Phyllis Court (Filetts) Filetts manor included a chief house on the site of Filetts or Phyllis Court by 1353, when goods there belonging to Richard at Hacche, perhaps a bailiff or lessee, were seized by the king for payment of debt.[13] Possibly the site formed part of the original manorial centre for Henley manor, together with Countess Garden to its south, but evidence for its earlier history is lacking.[14] The house was included in John Moleyns's grant of Filetts manor to Thomas Galian,[15] and during the 15th and 16th centuries was probably occupied by some of the owners of Filetts or by their lessees. Thomas Hales lived at Henley by 1502,[16] John Venor was warden in 1565,[17] and both William Marmion (d. 1470) and William Masham (d. 1600) were `of Phyllis Court',[18] while Sir John Miller, who also owned Henley park, lived at Phyllis Court in the early 17th century, serving as sheriff of Oxfordshire in 1633–4.[19] James I's consort Anne of Denmark briefly stayed there in August 1604, during the tenancy of Sir John Swinnerton.[20] The Whitelockes, who acquired the house c. 1638, continued to live at Fawley Court until 1642 when it was damaged by occupying Royalist soldiers,[21] and although Sir Bulstrode Whitelocke, as a Parliamentarian commander, was sometimes at Henley during the Civil War, from 1644 Phyllis Court was garrisoned and fortified by the Parliamentarians.[22] Whitelocke personally supervised demolition of the fortifications in 1646 and lived there with his family until around 1650, when he moved first to Fawley Court and, from 1663, to Chilton Lodge (Wilts.).[23] For a time Phyllis Court was leased, but Sir Bulstrode's son William moved there in 1664,[24] and until 1768 it was occupied by successive members of the Whitelocke family and by their successor Gislingham Cooper, who used it as a summer residence.[25] Later lords again lived at Fawley, and Phyllis Court was leased to resident gentry, among them Lady Clive (c. 1790), Admiral Bowyer, Strickland Freeman (c. 1813), William Jones (c. 1823), Thomas Hews (c. 1842), and George Pritt (c. 1845–52).[26] --------- Bridgewater House England 259.

G. Thomas The case study of the Monmouthshire contest of 1771 forms a corrective to recent views on the freedom of election in pre-reform Britain. The underlying lesson is the power of the great landed estates, with appeal to popular opinion being mainly for propaganda effect. Light is also thrown on electoral procedures, such as after-poll speeches, a new practice and a motive for compiling a poll-book.

She travelled to Madras in a party of 11 marriageable young ladies, arriving there in Jun 1752?? (Dep. England 18 Jan 1752 arr. Madras 4 Aug 1752]. Another one of these single ladies was Philadelphia Austen, aunt to the novelist, Jane Austen. She was pregnant late in 1757. She was expecting to travel to India with Clive in 1764, but finding she was pregnant, she remained behind and on 13 Mar 1765, she hosted a soiree at Berkeley sq., and the young Mozarts played and Manzuoli sang. She probably organised this partly having in mind that there was an impending election of the Directors of the east india Company and the contest between Clive's supporters and Sullivan's was a fierce one. This grand entertainiing was in the nature of canvassing. This soiree is the only recorded occasion when Manzuoli and Mozart are known to have performed together.
