Captain Lambton - Winslow COMPLETED
« on: Monday 19 May 08 22:28 BST (UK) »
Hi

I'm trying to research Robert Cook from Winslow, who died of wounds on 11/11/1918, I understand he worked for Capt. Lambton as a gardner before joining up. Does anyone have any info on Capt. Lambton?

Thanks

Ian C

Winslow Hall, the property and residence of Mr. N. McCorquodale, J.P., stands in well-planted grounds at the entrance to the town. It is a square brick building with stone quoins, three stories in height, and has a symmetrical front with a moulded modillion cornice and slated roof. It was built possibly from the designs of Sir Christopher Wren by William Lowndes, secretary to the Treasury. His name and the date 1700 are to be seen on the frieze over the door, and the Lowndes lived at Winslow Hall for many years afterwards. The house contains some good oak panelling and a fireplace dated 1647, which is probably of foreign origin. There are several powder closets. To the west of the Hall is a house similar in style and date, with a projecting Doric portico of wood over the front entrance. Redfield, the seat of Captain W. H. Lambton, is a handsome modern house of red brick with large grounds, from which extensive views of the county around can be obtained.
