George Bankes was a respected, but limited politician for Corfe Castle until 1832, and then for Dorset in 1841. He was involved in the Corn Law debates, and was suggested by George Bentinck as his possible successor. Bankes also wrote "The Story of Corfe Castle and of many who have lived there" and "Brave Dame Mary" which may have exacerbated the story of his ancestor.
