The house has notable literary connections. Algernon Bourke and his wife Gwendolen, who lived at St Mary’s in the late 19th century, were the inspiration for characters in Oscar Wilde’s famous play ‘The Importance of being Ernest’.

Alfred Musgrave, who owned the house from 1907, was the inspiration for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes story, ‘The Musgrave Ritual’.
