The Willis Fleming Historical Trust was formed in 2005 to identify, remember, and conserve the heritage of the Willis Fleming family of North Stoneham and Bletchley.
The Trust has established a family and estate archive, compiled a wealth of genealogical and topographical data, and undertaken a series of projects in collaboration and engagement with local communities, including the restoration of the Stoneham War Shrine.
The Willis Fleming family was a dynastic English family of landed proprietors, founded by the physician and natural philosopher Dr Thomas Willis (1621-1675). His grandson was the antiquary Browne Willis (1682-1760). From 1766, the Willis family adopted the additional name and arms of the extinct Fleming family of Stoneham, established by Sir Thomas Fleming (1544-1613), Lord Chief Justice. In the family's heyday, the seat of North Stoneham Park lay at the heart of a great estate, with land in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, Buckinghamshire, and Cambridgeshire.
