Hello WingMy sister and I are conducting some family tree research and it appears that my grandmother may have worked at the Grange in about 1900.Can anyone tell me who, or where to look, regarding the ownership of the Grange at that time.Thanks very muchAndy Murdock <email@example.com>
I am not sure if is the same building as I was always given to understand that Miss Brocklebank’s father had the current house and buildings built from the same consignment of bricks fired to build St Pancras station.
There is a likeness, the bricks are not typical of other brick buildings in the area.
Did you know that The Rutland Record Society has a set of pamphlets, Rutland Records. They are all on line. Reference Rutland Record number 8 . (1988) is called ‘Who’s Who in Rutland’. It gives information about people like Miss Brocklebank and the Neil family.
The Brocklebank family owned Wing Grange. Miss Brocklebank still lived at the Grange until the 60s several Wing villagers were employed there. The son of the last gardener still lives in Wing.
Just a note to say we found my grandmother and she was working at the Grange in 1911. We were able to track her down from the ‘Neil’ link.
