Woodhatch House, Reigate. Circa 1910.
Comment 1

I assume that this was the house of the Haywoods in the period 1870-1910. Mr Haywood was a timber merchant and a well-respected amateur rose-grower. His daughter, Margaret (1880-1965), married Alfred Fripp in 1898, won a medal for service in the Boer War, and became Lady Fripp when he was knighted by Edward VII in 1904.

My grandad was the chauffeur for mr R P Evans from about 1912 untill he died. I have a camera and camera stand bought in reigate that used to belong to mr Evans.

Was there an earlier Woodhatch House? This looks late Victorian. Apparently this had been the address of GW Alexander, a London banker and bill-broker who had been the Treasurer of the British and Foreign Anti-slavery Society from 1840.

Can anyone clarify if the house portrayed in the 1910 photo here was the home of the Haywoods in 1870-1910, or of George William Alexander (b.1802; d.1890), the London banker and Treasurer of the Anti-Slavery Society? My information is that GWA lived at Woodhatch from 1883 (when he retired) until his death on 24 November 1890.

I lived at 'The Cottage' Crescent Rd until the 1970's. The cottage was semi-detached and we understood they were built as estate cottages for Woodhatch House (which I remember as a small boy). Ours was meant to be the gardeners cottage. I can find some old photos if anyone is interested.

I am also interested to see a picture of Woodhatch House where George William Alexander lived. Is it the one above or another ?
