Note
He may also have had a son that died young. By far the most important and influential Principal Managing Owner (also called the “ship’s husband”) of his time, he was responsible for the organisation of the voyage, engaged captains and crews, and negotiated with the Directors of the East India Company. The East India Company, a government monopoly, requisitioned the most fertile land in India to grow opium. This was then traded for silver and silk in China, the proceeds being used to by tea in India, which was much more profitable. Valentines once stretched from Roding to Ley Street and included other properties in the district. Sir Raymond planted a Black Hamburg Vine in 1758, a cutting of which, taken 10 years later, was taken to Hampton Court. It still flourishes today. The tower Sir Raymond had built at Highlands, intended as a family mausoleum, later became known as Ilford Castle. Knepp castle and park are named from the natural mound (cnæpp) on which the original castle stands. William de Braose, one of William I ‘The Conqueror's’ favourite barons and given the "Rape of Bramber", built the castle probably in the 11th century as a hunting seat. Notable Kings, Queens and noblemen have stayed at the castle since 1208, when it was forfeited to King John. By the 1720’s the castle had its present form. It is not clear when the bulk of it was destroyed. William married Agnes de Clare, daughter of Waldron de Clare and Helen of Normandy. A monument (with a medallion) to Sir Charles Raymond can be seen on the south wall at St. George's Church, Beckenham, Kent.
