The Bankes family have lived in Dorset since the 17th century and owned land in east Dorset and Purbeck, including Studland. During this time the Bankes were often considered one of the most powerful families in England, owning both the estates of Corfe Castle and Kingston Lacy. In 1981, when her son, John Ralph Bankes died, he left the 16,000 acre estate to the National Trust.
