Major-General Sir Raymond Hoskins was born in 1872 and had a distinguished career in the army. A Cheltenham newspaper reported that he was mentioned in dispatches for service in the Dongola Epedition of 1898, the Nile Expedition of 1897-99 and in the South African War, when he was also awarded the DSO, the King's Medal and the Queen's Medal. In the East African Campaign he was again mentioned and decorated. In the Great War he was made KCB and CMG, and promoted Lieut.-General.

In the spring of 1940 he and his wife were reported to take up residence at Quenington Court as their permanent home. This would appear to have been delayed for a year as, in March 1941, Lady Hoskins advertised for staff at Quenington Court. At the time she was living in Glenfell House in Charlton Kings, Cheltenham.

However, General Hoskins died in February 1942, aged 70, and his wife left Quenington.
