Wikipidia provides this information:
On the Ankerwycke estate in the village are the ruins of a Benedictine nunnery, founded in the reign of King Henry II. One of the 50 oldest trees in the United Kingdom can be found here: at around 2000 years old,[5] the Ankerwycke Yew dates from the Iron Age, and is so wide that you can fit a Mini Cooper behind its trunk and not see it from the other side. Local legend says that Anne Boleynonce sat under the tree, while residing at the Ankerwycke estate, but this has not been verified.[6][7] The Ankerwycke estate was bought by John Blagrove, a prominent Jamaican slave owner, who did much to improve the estate

'Parishes: Wyrardisbury or Wraysbury', in A History of the County of Buckingham: Volume 3, ed. William Page (London, 1925), pp. 320-325. British History Online [accessed 8 May 2019]. has this information
he Ankerwycke estate, the property of Mr. Guy Harcourt, lies in the south of the parish. The ruins of Ankerwycke Priory, a house of Benedictine Nuns, are apparently of the 13th century with 15th-century additions, and consist of a length of wall, 10 ft. high, running east and west with two shorter fragments at the east and north-west. In the longer wall are three windows, all facing the south. There is a 15th-century opening in the fragment of wall at the northwest, and the east wall is strengthened by diagonal buttresses. All are now in a ruinous condition and overgrown with ivy. Near the ruins of the old nunnery is a large yew tree, connected traditionally with a meeting between Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn. In 1813 its girth 3 ft. from the ground was 27 ft. 8 in. and this in 1906 had increased to 30 ft. (fn. 8)Ankerwycke House, the residence of Mr. A. H. Benson, was built by John Blagrove in the early 19th century (fn. 9) on the site of the 16th-century residence of Sir Thomas Smith, statesman and scholar under Edward VI and Elizabeth. (fn. 10) The latter sovereign visited Sir Thomas Smith there in 1565. (fn. 11) The grounds overlook the Thames with the Surrey hills in the background. Near Ankerwycke is Magna Charta Island, where is preserved the stone framed in oak on which King John is said to have affixed his seal to Magna Charta.

Information about his film acting roles from

Barry Heenan is an actor, known for Above Suspicion (1943), Forever and a Day (1943) and The Shocking Miss Pilgrim (1947).

Above Suspicion: MGM produced He played a student though did not appear in the credits list. Film directed by Richard Thorpe. Starred Joan Crawford, Fred MacMurray, Basil Rathborne. Described as a spy thriller which has a mixure of suspense and a serious background with light hearted adventure and comedy.

Forever and a Day. He played a card player (uncredited) in the film which was produced by RKO Radio Pictures. Cast included Bustr Keaton, Ray Milland, Claude Rains, Charles Laughton. New York Times review March 13, 1943 - said the story is rather hackneyed though the film had some amusing and affecting passages. The most remarkable thing however was that it had 7 directors nd producers, 21 writers and 79 actors - was conceived 2years earlier as a tribute t Britain’s courage.Many of the people inolved gave their services free with proceeds to go to the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis.

The Shocking Miss Pilgrim, Twentieth Century Fox, starred Betty Grable. Barry Heenan played a stenographer. The New York Times review on feb 12, 1947 called it “a slight musical” “monotonous humoiur ….. the bulk of the music is as sticky as toothpaste being squeezed out of a tube” “Ther eis no more voltage in The Shocking Miss Pilgrim than in a badly used dry cell”.
