From The Times, 14 March 1986: "Cousin inherits marquis's millions"

A Scottish woman, aged 89, living in a London nursing home stands to inherit a third share in the £18 million estate of a Florentine marquis she had not seen for more than 40 years, after an Italian court ruling yesterday.

The estate of her cousin, Marquis Uberto Strozzi Sacrati di Mantova, includes a 17th-century house in Florence's Cathedral Square, two farms in Tuscany, land on Elba and works of art. Mrs Rosalind Varley - whose son, John, aged 66, a retired Navy lieutenant-commander, lives at Chilworth, near Guildford - shares the fortune with a cousin, and the widow and children of another cousin, who live in New Zea- land. A court in Florence found Valdemaro Sorri, the adopted son of a Florentine noblewoman, guilty of forging the will of the marquis in favour of his mother and of attempted fraud. He was sentenced to three years' jail. Signor Sorri's lawyer said he would appeal against the decision. (For full note see Uberto Strozzi)
