Hi I am looking for information on staff records and other documents for Downton Hall in
Ludlow. Also any other information on the uses of Downton Hall. I know it has been an old
peoples home and a hotel in the past but not the years when it was used as such. My
grandmother Mary Jane Baldwin nee Thomas born 1887 was a cook there into the late
1970's and my grandfather Ernest Richard Baldwin born 1885 in Bucklow was a gardener
there at the time of his death on the 28th January 1949 aged 64. In the 1940's the
High Sheriff Sir Edward Hotham Rouse-Boughton lived there.
Any information would be most welcome.
