Information and Photo from Ian Caldwell: Sir William Gregory (1624-1696) of Hill House, Woolhope, was a judge and recorder of Gloucester in 1672. He entered Parliament becoming Speaker of the House in 1679, but soon was appointed one of the Barons of the Exchequer and was knighted by Charles II in 1679. He prospered and bought the manors and estates of How Caple and Sollers Hope in 1677 and the manor of Fownhope in 1681.
Sir William's wife, Elizabeth Smith was daughter and heir of James Smith of Tellington, and widow of John Carpenter and Humphrey Tomkyns.
Sir William outlived his son, James.
