I see in 1881 ,

Wragby road .
Charles Arkill, the famous Printer and Bookseller, I believe he did Lincoln directories.

Maybe it was his house ,  :)

AKRILL!

Census says he lived in St Margaret parish - I think that was the bit above the Adam and Eve

Wife and several kids http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/census/household_record.asp?HOUSEHOLD_CODE=1881BR_3296195&HOUSEHOLD_SUB=1&frompage=5
Today I broke my personal record for most consecutive days alive.

You'd need more than one servant for a home that size, I would think.  My mum told me that she and some friends climbed onto the roof (through a small hatch) and sunbathed on walkways linking the chimneys!

Anyway, an interesting place and probably up for sale soon given the economic climate...  Anyone want to hazard a guess at the asking price?

Sorry, I'm afraid I'd not heard of him.  After searching for ARKILL failed I had to search for just Charles ... then I found out how his name was spelt :)

1900 it was occupied by Robert SWAN J.P. according to the directory, but in fact ...
Deaths Mar 1899
SWAN Robert    65    Lincoln    7a   331

I think this was them in 1881 http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/census/household_record.asp?HOUSEHOLD_CODE=1881BR_3294451&HOUSEHOLD_SUB=1&frompage=5

EDIT:  1871 home of the SWAN family - St Nicholas Quarry House ... in fact the brother of one of my ancestors lived in the Lodge as the gardener in 1871! :)

Now, that's interesting... The Quarries!

And a decent amount of staff too, quite what I'd expect from a house of that size.

Hi Everyone,
                  What a shock my daughter was looking up st johns hospital history in Lincoln and i said look up The Quarry .She found this forum showing pictures and peoples comments on the place.I was told this place had been demolished as i really did not know where it was.My mother was sent there in 1952 and had me on christmas eve.My grandmother came to collect my mother .I was told that i was going to be given up for adoption but my grandmother change her mind and took us both home.Where she was a big influence in my life and brought me up, i loved her dearly.It was very emotional seeing the building where i was born.I can recollect being told that the women scrubbed floors and they where very strict with them.Also when giving birth was on a board over a roll top bath.As i know where it is now my daughters going to take me as i feel i need to go and hopefully see it.

I was also at the quarry in 1968 , it was more like a workhouse than a maternity home, have dreadful  memories of the quarry.


Hello,

I'm sorry to read you have bad memories of the quarry. I just ran search on it not expecting to find anything - big surprise to find this forum and see the photo of the place. I was born there in October 1968.
