The Seymour Home in Maidenhead Court.

The Seymour Home Location.

My researches have now located where Admiral Seymour and his sister lived in retirement in Maidenhead Court. Hedsor View was located on what is now named Court Park Road. Next to Colchester House and Redlands, quite close to a row of cottages named Cuba Cottages.

After the Admiral died his sister sold up and moved, and a family named “Horeley” who had two daughters whose names were Sally & Gillian. They remained in the house until the early 1950’s.

So who ever is living there now I wonder, are they aware of the fact that once it was the home of a retired Admiral of the Fleet.
