Luke Phillips builder Farley
« on: Friday 17 November 17 21:05 GMT (UK) »
Luke Phillips was a builder who in 1868 was involved in building a new school, and Master's  house. I am wondering if they are still in existence.
Also the names Long Mead, Church Furlong and Field Gate, seem to be in connection as to where he lived.
Any information would be welcome.

Hi

I wonder if it is this one? Formerly a Victorian Primary School, but now a Nursery.

Luke is on various census'. Born c1802 Alderbury, Wilts. He lived in Under Hill (also shown as Under the Hill) Farley. He was a Builder and also a Farmer of 41 acres and employed 3 men.

I haven't found Under Hill on a map yet!

Thank you giggsy cat for the link. From the description I have it could be this building or at least some of it may be.
The places I mentioned are descriptions of places that Luke Phillips had long leases on and were probably where he lived or worked. The only information I have is from Census and certificates which just give Farley as an address and I would like to find out where in Farley he lived.

The Salisbury & Winchester Journal, Sat 16 May 1868, reported the opening of the new school -
"... his lordship should grant a new site of half an acre immediately adjoining the Church ... The work was contracted for, and duly executed by, Mr Luke Phillips and Mr Thomas Pragnell, who are residents in Farley""

Checked for an 1872 will here
https://probatesearch.service.gov.uk/#wills

It's listed page 9 - but simply states "late of Farley"

Thank you hanes teulu for the link to the map of Farley. I had looked at other maps but they didn't show the detail that appears on this one.
I had seen the probate record, but not from this source which looks a very useful site for those of us trying to trace our ancestors.

Had a close up look at the school on Streetview and certainly fits its 1868 description -

"The walls are of red brick, pointed in red, and relieved by string courses of moulded bricks with a moulded brick plinth and mouldings round the doors and windows: the roof is of slate with overhanging eaves, supported on wood brackets, richly moulded"
