NOTES: Michael Stephens, director of the company ÔÇÿStephenÔÇÖs InkÔÇÖ founded by his father, bought the Coverwood Estate from Hugh Fortescue Locke King, who was forced to put the estate up for sale in 1907 as his ambitious plan to build the motor racing track at Brooklands brought him almost to the point of bankruptcy. Stephens, married in 1908, commissioned Horsley to knock down the ÔÇÿshooting boxÔÇÖ built by the Locke KingÔÇÖs and erect a new house nearby.
