Death of Lady Rothschild of Stowell Park near Pewsey

 

Lady Rothschild who lived at Stowell Park near Pewsey, has died at the age of 83 (January 13).  The house was owned by her father Sir Philip Dunn, she was brought up there and was very attached to the house.

 


Her private funeral will be held next week at Huish.

Lady Rothschild showed her commitment to Pewsey by making a generous donation to Pewsey Vale School - the Governors have recently expressed their gratitude to her.  She is also reported to have been a supporter of Pewsey Carnival.

She was a very private person.  Everyone we have spoken to about her says what a gentle and well-mannered person she was.

Like her father, she was very involved in Flat racing - as a breeder and owner. She owned and ran Waddesdon Stud near Aylesbury.

 One of her most successful horses was Nathaniel who is now standing at stud and sired Enable - the dual winner of the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.

Nathaniel was named after her youngest child who now farms near Pewsey.  Some of her horses were in training at Roger Charlton's Beckhampton yard and she was a frequent visitor there.  The stables sent out her last winner - Great Bear who won at Wolverhampton in November.

Lady Rothschild's younger sister is Nell Dunn the author of the 1960s sensations Up the Junction and Poor Cow.
