Who was Lady Joanna Thornhill?

Wye is a popular village school, founded by Lady Joanna Thornhill who was lady-in-waiting to Catherine of Braganza, wife of Charles II. She was the great granddaughter of Sir Richard Grenville and widow of Colonel Richard Thornhill of Olantigh in Wye. When she died in 1708, Lady Joanna left an endowment ‘for the benefit of the poorest children of Wye for their better education.’ And so began Lady Joanna Thornhill’s (Endowed) Primary School!
