This was in my Dad's family at some point in time - not sure of when but was there in Aug 2008 but only at the gate. Unfortunately, we could not get into the grounds. Would have been fab if we could have!!

My father in father - law's mother grew up here as daughter of the housekeeper and gardener and he often visited in his childhood in the 1930's. I would love to be able to take him back to visit so if anyone knows how that would be great!

@ Sandra Arthurs: if this British history website (www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=42950) is reliable, the Wonham family appear to have owned Wonham Manor only until 1646.

Ashley Wonham from Camden, NSW, Australia posted this comment on Monday 06 February 2012 00:31:00.

I am also a Wonham. we dont know much about our history but I would love to know more... Rumor through the family is that the Wonhams lost the Manor due to gambling debts?

I have always wanted to go and see Wonham Manor... Maybe one day :-)

My mother was born and grew up here in the 1930's. Her father was chauffeur and they lived in a cottage in the grounds. She told me many tails of life there.

My maternal grandmother was a Wonham and I am doing history into the family and wondered if anyone can give me any details of the history of the Manor, Mill and Lane

Comment 15

Ken Dason from Burton on Trent posted this comment on Friday 11 August 2017 10:57:56.

After reading the comments posted. Comment 8 Lesley makes reference to my uncle Arthur Busby, the gardener. As a small boy, our family spent time during one summer (late 60's?)at the gate house for our holiday. From a northern industrial town (Scunthorpe) days spent in the country, exploring the woods and riding in the grass box on the tractor was heavenly. If business takes me in that direction, I would love to have a look at the place again after all these years.
