After George of Stover was forced to leave Stover, he moved to France after marrying Ann Wreyford. After Ann died (1829), he returned to Devon and had Sandford Orleigh House built. This was still a very impressive house (even if it didn’t have the substantial grounds of Stover House) so the story that George was bankrupt when he sold Stover is not correct.
