Style was descended from Sir John Style, a London alderman, who bought the estate of Langley, in Beckenham, at the end of the fifteenth century. About the beginning of the seventeenth century his great-grandfather bought Wateringbury, which Style rebuilt.1 Returned as a Tory in 1715, he was unseated on petition and did not stand again. He died 11 Jan. 1769.
