Following their ninth AGM Edna Stacey gave a talk to the March Society on the subject of who used to live in some of March’s well known houses or worked in some of its notable premises.

Edna began with Church House, which is opposite St Wendreda’s Church and was originally a meeting house.

Her talk included stories of Hatchwoods, Eastwood House, Stone Cross House, the White Lion Pub, Norland House, the Maze, Audmoor House, Cassanos, Bridge House, the Royal Exchange, Bank House and Portland House.

Stories about some of the homes of March families included those of the Gray family, the Neales, the Waymans, the Phillips and others. Some buildings have disappeared and been replaced while others remain.

The next March Society event is ‘Whalebones and Interesting Buildings’ - a stroll with Jennifer Lawler looking at the hidden treasures of Dartford Road at 6.45pm on Wednesday August 10.
