This is a cutting from the first Quarter of a magazine called Ephemera, published in 1958. It refers to the Beaumont family that were all christened in Mendham. Reginald Beaumont, who submitted this article lived in Canada. Six of his siblings were born in Middleton Hall (Suffolk) and 6 were born in Shotford Hall (Norfolk). The picture that is shown is viewed from near the bridge across to High Hall House which is in the process of being thatched. The house opposite the pub was not built at that time. Notice the front door of the pub which was then a house and that passageway went straight through the building which it does today if it weren't for the fact that the door has been replaced by a window.
We know of another family that lived in Canada and they lived at Red House... I wonder? Watch this space...
