Lord Hatherton's Journal, 1st February, 26th March, 1859


1st February
Passed two hours in Penkridge, making visits, going over the Ivy House, belonging to me. Lately occupied by Mrs Vickers, whose furniture is now exhibited for sale.
26th March
Caroline and I drove down to Penkridge, I on my way to Wolverhampton. Being too early, we went to inspect the Ivy House, near the church yard, which used to be occupied by Mr Slaney, the clergyman and then was let for a young Ladies' Boarding School to Miss Walford and afterwards to Dr. Vickers and then to his widow. I have added to it and repaired it twice and now have put in new marble chimney pieces and grates and repaired it for Mr Lister, the surgeon.
