|This month’s picture shows Sir Hubert Miller in deep conversation with his gardener, Gerald Robinson, in the garden of “Shrubbery House” some when around 1900.
Late last year we were lent the log book of the Froyle Place Estate which recorded the day to day business of what was, basically, Upper Froyle.
Gerald’s grand-son, also named Gerald, but known to all in the village as “Gerry”, brought the book to our attention and Annette extracted some of the more interesting entries - mainly those referring to people in the village between 1904 and 1936.
Sadly, Gerry died suddenly just before Christmas 2013 and was not able to see the finished transcripts.You can read all about them in Froyle Place, Estate Records, accessible via Upper Froyle (map & links).
Also added to Clippings is a transcript of an article on Froyle in 1959 from the “Hampshire Herald & Alton Gazette”
