Lady Emily Paget (1810-1893) was the daughter of Henry Paget, 1st Marquess of Anglesey, by his second wife Lady Charlotte Cadogan. She married John Townshend, 1st Earl Sydney, on 4th August 1832.
They had no children

Frognal House was purchased by Thomas Townshend in 1752 and became the residence of his son, Thomas Townshend, 1st Viscount Sydney, after whom Sydney, Australia was named. In 1915 the Marsham-Townshend family sold the house and 1,740-acre estate to the government.

The house is also famous for being the original building of the Queen's Hospital (later Queen Mary's Hospital), Sidcup, developed as the First World War's major centre for facial and plastic surgery, largely through the efforts of Harold Gillies.
