Slain burglar Henry Vincent's fraudster father is living as the 'Lord of the Manor' on a sprawling £1.7million farm which his wife bought from a pensioner for 'a fraction of its true worth', MailOnline can reveal.
Henry Vincent senior's wife Rosemary, 59, has taken ownership of the Grade II listed detached farmhouse – where their son was living before he died – and 40 acres of land from retired Dudley Wright, 72.
Land registry documents show that Mrs Vincent bought the palatial home called Snagbrook in Hollingbourne, Kent, on April 12, for a cut price £325,000 – six times less than its true market value.
The five-bedroom house and land were sold in five separate titles with each valued at £65,000 – for a total of £325,000 – in Mrs Vincent's name, the documents show.

Land registry documents show that Mrs Vincent bought the palatial farmhouse called Snagbrook in Hollingbourne, Kent, and 40 acres of land on April 12, for just £325,000 – six times less than its true market value. Estate agents says it's worth £1.7m

As the Vincents prepare for the controversial funeral of their burglar son tomorrow, local estate agents have valued the sprawling site in the region of £1.7million.
Vincent Jnr, 37, died as he robbed the home of Richard Osborn-Brooks in Hither Green on April 4.
He ended up being stabbed with his own screwdriver during a scuffle with the former RAC office manager. He collapsed and died after staggering onto the pavement.
Back at the farm imposing signs have been put up around the property reminding visitors they are not welcome with warnings that CCTV has been installed.
There are also signs proclaiming 'Beware...German Shepherd on Patrol' and MailOnline saw two German Shepherds running freely in the grounds.
Soon after the Vincents moved in around two years ago, Mr Wright's cattle were sold and a long-serving farm worker, who had lived in a house in the grounds, was duly removed and lost his job.
It is unclear how the 59-year-old career criminal Vincent Snr – who was jailed for being part of a gang who preyed on pensioners to carry out unnecessary building work – and opera loving Mr Wright met and came to be living on the property together.
A former neighbour said that three years ago Vincent Snr began work on the property and parked his caravan on the land where he slept while he was there.
Mr Wright is now believed to sleeping in a static mobile home on a long drive away from the main house while the Vincents are thought to be staying in the caravan parked beside the house.
A short time after Vincent Snr and his flame-haired wife began living there divorced father-of-one Mr Wright wrote to his ex-wife Winifred Wright saying that their daughter Davina, 41, was being written out of his will.

Mr Wright, 72, is reportedly living in this static caravan on the 40-acre site. Locals in Hollingbourne have also raised concern over the well-being of Mr Wright, who was once a vocal member of their community, but is not now often seen in the village

Mrs Wright, 72, whom he married in 1972 and broke up four years later, said was so concerned about his health and safety that she contacted the police.
