We have 2 pictures which have been handed down from my mother which show White House Farm in March (year unknown).   It states on the write up to Country Life magazine the following:

The accompanying photographs were taken this year at the White House Farm on the Canon-ffrome estate, near Ledbury in Herefordshire.  Mr Walter Pitt, the present tenant, and his ancestors who have occupied the farm since the year 1804, have always taken great pride in their snowdrops, as well as in their hops for which the Canon-ffrome estate has for so long been celebrated.  The appearance of this farm garden during the month of March was a really beautiful one.

I guess you may well be interested in having these pictures as we have no idea why they are in our family.  We would gladly pass them on to you.  Regards, Rowland.

Hi Liisa

I think we may have the picture of White House Farm because there are Pitt's in our family although I don't think they are in any way connected to White House Farm. All my Pitt relations were born in Worcester, England.

Hi Rowland,

I have often wondered if my Pitt's had originated from Worcester since it seems to relatively close to Canon Frome.  I would be interested to hear more about your Pitt ancestors (we can do this via email).  I am under the impression that James Pitt of Canon Frome may not have been born at Canon Frome.
