John Ridgely III (1911-1990) and Lillian Ketcham Ridgely (1908-1996) are seen in this snapshot as a young married couple. Although John was never officially a master of the Hampton estate, as the eldest son of John Ridgely, Jr. (1882-1959) and Louise Roman Humichouse Ridgely (1883-1934), he and his wife played significant roles in the management of the property. The couple lived for several years at Hampton during the late 1930s, where Lil’s efforts focused on the restoration of Hampton’s gardens.
