Hi folks, especially Craven 481 who was born at Collar House

My book on the history of Collar House is finished and the manager of the Prestbury Beaumont/Collar House has offered to have a coffee morning on Saturday Sept 14th at 11.  I will have the book available then.  I need to let Collar House know the numbers should you wish to come.

It is 50 pages of A4 with the history from 1780 -2012.

Mary

Congratulations on the completion of your book. As I live in Warwickshire I will not be at your book launch but hope it is a great success.

If you look at last my posting - above your last one - you will see that I was probably mistaken with my earlier assumption and it now looks more likely that I was born at Prestbury Hall but have yet to prove this as I haven't found anyone else who was born there.

Cheers
Ken

My mother was born in Collar House, October 30th 1946. It was the former home of Sir Oswald Moseley. I found this great little article online which might help shed some light  :)

As added elsewhere:

Denise,
The article from the link states:

'One website states categorically that this had been the home of Sir Oswald Mosley, leader of the British Union of Fascists. Not very well researched for the Moseley family of Prestbury did not even spell their name in the same way as Sir Oswald'
