The young Hon. George Petre had also been designated to inherit the manor of Bellhouse, in the parish of Stanford Rivers, Essex, which had come back to the Baron Petre in 1762, at the failure of the male line of a younger branch of the family, which had been seated there since 1628. He held both manors at his early death in 1797 at age 31, leaving a widow, the former Maria Howard of Corby Castle (1762-1837), with their four surviving children, three sons and a daughter. The eldest son was Henry William Petre who made Dunkenhalgh Hall his chief seat, and who married as his second wife, his first cousin Adela Maria Howard, above.
