Notes The house itself was built for the Misses Tyrwhitt-Drake family, five-generation descendants of the famous naval hero. Designed by architect William Wilkinson it took six years to construct and was completed in 1866 at a cost of £5,500. Wilkinson also designed the Randolph Hotel in Oxford.
But only the nursery wing, which was added to main house in 1892, remains today because the rest was demolished in 1953-54.
