Slaugham 2010 Year Book
I used to live in the old cottage by the ruins about 59 years ago with my family.
We went fishing in the old mill pond with bamboo rods and a cork for a float. Of course the fence wasn't there then but I am amazed the old shed is still there.

If Slaugham Place Farm was only built in 1960 was it built on the location of a previous house of the same name?.
I have a letter from my great-grandmother dated 1949 sent from Slaugham Place Farm. I believe she worked there.

Were the Warwicks farming there in the 1940s?

I was told my great-grandmother worked there for an Italian called Mr Ferraris. If this is correct I do not know.

Aaron has supplied me with more details of his great-grandmother. Her name was Giulia Baldo, but often used the anglicised version of Julia. She was born in Italy and moved to England in 1948/49.
On 22nd July 1949 she wrote a letter to her mother in Italy giving her address as Slaugham Place Farm. She is thought to have been a housekeeper or similar, presumably in Slaugham Place, then the large country house of Cuthbert and Marjorie Blundell. At that time the Blundell family owned the adjacent farm, farm buildings and farm cottages.
A source on the internet, not directed connected to Giulia, records that just after WWII “George went to work at Slaugham Place Farm milking Jersey cattle for an Italian called Ferraris, a Cricklewood builder”.
I can find no records whatsoever for Giulia or Signore Ferraris at Slaugham. Please can anybody help?
