Mrs. Margaret Turner,
I am looking for the owners and history of two
houses and a farm in the Bucklebury area.
According to family legend there is a prep school
just outside Bucklebury which may have been a
minor stately home. The building may have been
owned by a Lady Pyke or Pryke and have been used
by the army in the war (it may have been a
barracks or hospital). I am also trying to
identify Holly Farm House. There was possibly a
dispute between the occupier, John Morton, and
another named Herridge over an inheritance. Who
owns the land and farmhouse now?
