D'Arcy Richard Baker (1877-1932)

In the early 1900s he extensively renovated Hedsor House, a mansion he owned in Hedsor, Buckinghamshire, but the expense led to his bankruptcy, and on his death his estate passed to his bankers, and then to the Shepherd family in 1934

In 1908 Fiat entrant d'Arcy Baker engaged the company's star performer, Felice Nazzaro, to handle a huge chain-driven car named Mephistopheles in a match race against Napier's giant Samson for a £250 purse.
