When Augustus died in 1930, in an act of revenge on his wife, he willed Tapeley to some distant cousin in Canada. Lady Rosamund fought the will in the law courts, eventually proving that he was of unsound mind when the will was made. She finally won shortly before her own death in 1936.
For several years during the Second World War Tapeley was let out to evacuee children from Plymouth, and then as a home for the Invalid Children's Aid Association, and for a spell as an hotel, before becoming the home of John and Audrey's daughter, another Rosamund. Her brother, George Christie, took over the running of Glyndebourne and was knighted in 1984.
