Column in grounds
of Quex Park

This momument stood originally in the grounds at Kingsland, which belonged
to Charles James Fox. When Kingsland was sold, the new owners, who had
married into the Powell-Cotton family, brought it to Quex Park. The
monument consists of a stone plain Corinthian column with a stone base,
surmounted by an urn. It was erected to the memory of Margaret Kildare,
Countess of Hilsborough who died at Naples in 1767.
