ROBERT KENNEDY’S DAUGH­TER SUES FOR GAR­DEN URN FROM FAM­ILY HOME

Ottawa Citizen - - Navigator -

When Robert Kennedy’s fam­ily in 2009 de­cided to sell its famed Hick­ory Hill es­tate in McLean, Va., daugh­ter Kerry wanted to take a 1.3-me­tre-high urn planter as an heir­loom for the fam­ily com­pound in Hyan­nis Port, Mass. The new owner re­sisted, but said he would give it up in 10 years — and signed a writ­ten agree­ment. When Kennedy later asked for it, he re­fused, and she sued. The new owner thought the urn had been brought to Hick­ory Hill by Jackie Kennedy in the 1950s when she and JFK bought the house (they sub­se­quently swapped homes with RFK), and that it should go with the fam­ily. But upon learn­ing it had been at Hick­ory Hill be­fore the Kennedys, he thought it should stay with the prop­erty.
