Message from you was just my message returned!!!I have old pictures of Eastwood Hall-and some  History- Eastwood Hall was acquired by the Walker family from the Plumptres, with George Walker listed as "Llord of the Manor" and living at Eastwood Hall in 1832 Trade director. His daughter Mabel Zoe inherited the estates when she was left an orphan at two years old. After her marriage in early 1900s she spent little time at the Hall and it was aquired by Barber Walker company in 1916 when they made it their head office,then it became offices for NCB No 5 Area, then British Coal and is now Hayley Conference centre. During WW1 it was used for a time as a convalescent home for Belgian Officers-during WW2 the stables(no longer used for horses) were used for storing dried food. I have a few pics-one old one when the lake was still in existence. Try to PM me for more info

Hello - I realiseI am responding to a very old post - but are you an expert on the Walkers? I'm doing some research on Rhinefield in the New Forest, which is the house Mabel Zoe Walker built with the family money after marrying Edward Lionel Munro in 1887, when she was 21. I assume this is when she gained control of the estate from the trustees. I'm trying to solve the riddle of her parents' death though. Thomas Walker died in 1871, aged 25 though I'm not sure of what (I can order his death cert I guess). He had married a girl called Eleanor Glew Bourne in London in Q4 1865 when he was 19 and she was only 14. Mabel was born on July 30th 1866. The 1871 census (taken in late April) shows Thomas and Eleanor still living at Eastwood Hall - though Thomas then died on 11th May. By then, Mabel had already been shipped off to Thomas's Aunt Frances in Bushey Park (Teddington, Middlesex). The census records Eleanor as having been born in Notts in 1851 - though there is no record of an Eleanor Bourne's birth in Notts between 1850 and 1852. There is an Eleanor Glew in Radford in 1851, and another unnamed female Glew in Basford (registration district for Eastwood) also in 1851. This is perhaps the most likely entry, though I do not know how or why she acquired the maiden name 'Bourne' in that case. It is a mystery, because after the 1871 census Eleanor disappears. I cannot find any record of her death but, as I have found several references to Mabel being an orphan, presumably she did. Do you by any chance know what happened to her?

Kind regards
