Families associated with the property

Ayde: In 1941 Isabella Constance Adye, née Vickers, widow of Hugh Mortimer Adye, was living here. Her will is dated 1954. In 1945, after the end of the German Occupation she wrote to the Bailiff complaining about the quality of butter being distributed. Shortly after she wrote again to the Bailiff to complain that her gardener would no longer work for her because he was better off 'on the Labour' getting paid for doing virtually nothing, and without getting his clothes dirty
