Lemington House (Moreton in Marsh)
« on: Sunday 29 March 15 17:15 BST (UK) »
I was just wondering if anybody might have any information or pictures of a property called Lemington House in Moreton in Marsh.

A branch of my family lived at the property from around the 1880s until the 1970s. The first member being the Reverend James William Clarke (1831-1888) and the last being his granddaughter Mary Evelyn Gertrude Burdge (nee Clarke-Baylis) (1901-1974).

I would be most grateful for any help or information.

Hi there

http://www.zoopla.co.uk/property-history/lemington-house/oxford-street/moreton-in-marsh/gl56-0la/27222724

If you look at the property on streetview (above is only a part of it) & zoom in there's a black plaque on the building saying "Lemington House"

Hello. I can tell you a few things. Firstly, I live at Lemington House. I have spoken to the Son, of the last Burdge, that lived at Lemington House. She was a very elderly lady in 1970 and living here was difficult for her. Her Son told me she was too old to stay, but too old to move. The house was huge at that point. The next owners let it fall into dereliction, and the next brought it back from the brink, but split it into three to sell it. A local stone mason told me that his mother used to clean for the lady who lived here. The house was falling into disrepair and the lady lived in just one room, which is our lounge now. You have to clime around eight steps to it so she must have had reasonable mobility, even at such an age. All of the local children were frightened of the house and after her death would dare each other to break in and run through the house. Just before we bought it we were told that it was haunted and my partner who doesn't believe in ghosts when the lights are on or the sun is shining nearly backed out of the sale, because he said he didn't want an invisible lady watching him get undressed at night. :-) Why would she want to?!

Anyway, we did buy it and we haven't had any invisible ladies yet. I think it really all came from it being the local Boo Radley house. The last Mrs Burdge in fact finally died in a nursing home, though lived here nearly to the end. I spoke to the Son of this lady and we were meant to be getting together. He has photos of the house from his childhood that I would dearly love to see. The house has the most fascinating history that goes way back to the Creswick family. I have the telephone number (and name) of the son. There is a possibility that I could phone him again and ask if I could give you his contact details. He was very warm and friendly, but our visit just didn't happen.

Kindest Regards
K

Hello, I forgot to say, I think it must have been Reverend James William Clarke, who invited the famous cricketer WG Grace to stay at Lemington house. He stayed for some weeks. I always hope he stayed in my room. He'd be pretty fashionable now with the young mens liking for growing great long beards.

Hello
I am the daughter of Michael Burdge and today we have been going over all the history of Lemington house. We have detailed information of all those who stayed and died in the house. Quite a few! I spent time there as a child and remember the ghosts! The house was bought by William Davis in 1854 for #1000. He was married to Mary Maria ne Baylis, widow of Hemming George.
More to come if I get a response!
