Samuel Brenster was a gentleman in Stoke Poges who is known to have subscribed to literary and ecclesiatical papers, including about the history and antiquities of St Peter’s abbey church: Westminster abbey and the cathedral church of Canterbury. He would have lived in one of the few fine properties in the Parish of Stoke Poges. The memorial shows he died age 66 in 1714.
In the late 18th century Sir Robert Gayer and then his son owned the Manor house through to 1723; Dr Gregory Hascard, the Dean of Windsor owned Baylis house through to 1708 and the Rectory Manor was owned by the Clarges family with Revd Richard Redding residing in the vicarage to 1718. Dr Hascard was one of the most celebrated spreachers of his time and may have had well read educated gentlemen like Brenster assisting him.
