Edward Thomas Foley
He was the eldest son of Hon. Edward Foley and his wife Eliza Maria Foley Hodgetts and elder brother of John Hodgetts Hodgetts-Foley and inherited the Stoke Edith estate from his father in 1803. He was educated at Brasenose College, Oxford (1809) and appointed High Sheriff of Herefordshire for 1815–16.
He married in 1832 Lady Emily Graham daughter of James Graham, 3rd Duke of Montrose, but died childless in 1846. His widow survived him until 1901. Foley's will enabled his widow to dispose of the Stoke Edith estate as she wished, but she declined to use that power, enabling her husband's great nephew Paul Henry Foley of Prestwood, Staffordshire, the grandson of John Hodgetts Hodgetts-Foley, to inherit the estate.
