Gosford Park

The valet of one of the guests at the house, Robert Parks, is in fact the son of Lord Stockbridge and his housekeeper, Mrs. Wilson, conceived when Mrs. Wilson worked as a factory girl in one of Lord Stockbridge's mills. Parks is the person who stabbed Sir William in the study but he is not guilty of murder because William was already dead. He was poisoned by Mrs. Wilson who recognised her son and knew that Parks was planning to kill him.
