Stephen McKenna (1888-1967) was a British novelist. In The Datchley Inheritance, old John Datchley, sour and cynical, has willed his fortune. But the catch is, it goes to his first of his nine grandsons who can marry within a year of his death and reside at Datchley Castle for six months of each year. An amusing tale of matrimonial attempts and familial contest.
