The Fitzwilliam's country residence was the renowned Wentworth Wodehouse, the largest house in Great Britain. The family operated coal mines, reputedly employing over 2,000 men at their peak. Nationalization of the coal industry in 1947, and the death of Billy's heir in 1948 led to the breaking up of the estate.

The Countess Maud Fitzwilliam was an avid horsewoman who had also become a champion for pit pony rights, serving as president of the Association for the Prevention of Cruelty to Pit Ponies. She was also a benefactress of mining families working in her husband's collieries.
