Rex Fortescue was the thoroughly unpleasant patriarch of the Fortescue family and the first victim to die in A Pocket Full of Rye. Always a business man of questionable ethics his judgement was becoming equally questionable, to the damage of his company, until somebody saw fit to get him out of the way - permanently.

He has two sons: Percival and Lance Fortescue.
