Richmond House Writtle

.....1886 Birth of Adelaide Musgrove
This interesting birth certificate (above) shows the Musgrove's on the move again. When their daughter Adelaide was born on twenty sixth July 1886 the family were living in a house in Baddow Road, Great Baddow as shown on the birth certificate. When the birth was registered on seventh of September 1886 the family had moved to the Essex village of Writtle and were resident in an imposing Georgian property called Richmond House overlooking the green. The property was previously used as the residential part of a private school for young ladies ran by a Elizabeth Watkins. The school had closed by the time George and his family moved to Writtle. The main school building was demolished and replaced by the buildng on the left which is now a post office. The old photo below shows Writtle Green about 1920.
