Lady Baillie Olive (Leeds Castle)


Anglo-American heiress, landowner and hostess best known as the owner of Leeds Castle, near Maidstone, Kent, England. On her death the castle was bequeathed to a charitable trust to enable it to be open to the public.

She was the elder daughter of the Englishman Almeric Paget (1861–1949), a Member of Parliament for Cambridge who later became the 1st Baron Queenborough, and the American heiress Pauline Payne Whitney (1874–1916), who married in 1895. Her younger sister, Dorothy Wyndham Paget, was born in 1905.

When their mother died in 1916, Olive and her sister Dorothy inherited US$4,000,000 to be divided between the girls. Their father remarried in 1921 to conspiracy theorist and anti-Mormon agitator Edith Starr Miller. Through her father's second marriage, which ended in divorce in 1932, Olive had three younger half-sisters, Audrey Elizabeth Paget, an aviatrix; Enid Louise Paget; and Cicilie Carol Paget.

Olive was educated in France and, in 1918, during World War I, she served briefly as a wartime nurse. She married and divorced three times and had three children. Upon her third marriage to Sir Adrian William Maxwell Baillie, 6th Baronet, she gained the title of Lady Baillie. She died in London on 9 September 1974 at age 74. Lady Baillie's estate amounted to about £4.08 million.
