    THE LATTERIDGE HOME

Latteridge

Above, a copy of an old photo taken in the 1950’s which Gertrude Rosa Burgess sent to her sister (Maud Lilly Burgess - 1875-1962) in Australia.

Edward William Burgess Baglin (1906-1969) {the son of Gertrude Rosa Burgess (1874-1958) and father to Grace Russ (Grace Enid Baglin 1933-2006)} took Grace and Gertrude Burgess back to Latteridge in the 1950's to see if the old farmhouse was still there; they were pleased to find it was, and that it was still in use. On their visit they met the occupiers and were shown around the house; and according to Gertrude Burgess it was just as she remembered it apart from a few modern improvements in the kitchen - she was delighted.

Latteridge family home

Above is a more recent photo showing a recent single storey extension on the left and a barn conversion on the right; the original cottage being just the four windows and porch on the left with an attached two storey barn on the right.  And below the image shows more of the surroundings, with the old orchard being to the left (just off shot); Gertrude Rosa Burgess having mentioned the orchard to her granddaughter (Grace Enid Baglin) when she was telling Grace about her life as a child and young teenager growing up at Latteridge. According to the present occupant the old apple trees in the old orchard (of a species that was popular in the Victorian period but no longer popular and no longer cultivated) were felled and cleared just a few years ago.
