Administrative History:

THE WOODFOLD ESTATE

 

John Fowden Hindle purchased the Woodfold Estate from the Suddell family in the 1820s. He died in 1831 and his will was proved the same year. However, the settling of his estate, by trustees, continued for decades. His son John Fowden Hindle (junior) died in 1849 and gradually property was let or sold.

 

Daniel Thwaites rented Woodfold in the late 1850s for 10 years and it was probably his son, Daniel Thwaites (junior), who bought it in 1865. When he died in 1888 the estate passed to trustees and to his daughter Elma Amy, who married Robert Armstrong Yerburgh. In 1897, the trustees set up a limited liability company known as Woodfold Estates. In 1926, Amy Yerburgh set up the Woodfold Estates Company Limited. During her lifetime she held property in London on Addison Road, at Princess Gate and at 25 Kensington Gore; at Caythorpe Court in Lincolnshire; at Freeby in Leicestershire; at Colwyn Bay in North Wales: Bryn Eithin and Cae Eithin (the latter was sold for building plots); and at Barwhillanty in Kirkcudbrightshire, Scotland.

 

Mrs. Yerburgh died in 1949 and from 1955 the estates and brewery were managed separately from adjacent offices at Eanam, Blackburn
