  • Laverstock Farm :: History
    servant Mary Turner 25 for whom we should spare a thought down the tunnel of the years As the only general domestic kept she would have been responsible to all the chores outside the kitchen and a good many within it including the carrying of coals and bath water to the top of the house and the lighting of all the fires A thrifty and dexterous servant was expected to light a fire with no more than six pieces of kindling John Peach was killed in a farm accident in 1848 Then as now farms were dangerous places In 1851 his widow Mary was farming the estate with the help of her unmarried sons Matthew and Walter Her other son John occupied the dairy quarters with his wife Hannah and with their children Matthew 11 Jane 10 and John 5 The Peaches were succeeded by the Popes In 1861 William Pope 44 a native of Yeovil was farming 246 acres here with the help of five men four women and four boys By his wife Harriett 48 he had produced at least seven children Jane 17 Dinah 16 William 14 Mary 12 Emma 11 Harriett 9 and Thomas 7 He kept a resident housemaid and a governess for the children Elizabeth Taylor 26 The Victorians considered the ideal governess to be one who is our equal in birth manners and education but our inferior in worldly wealth As such Miss Taylor could have been expected to live above stairs en famille However as the word governess shown against her name on the 1861 census has been three times crossed though and the word servant substituted one suspects that she was treated as an ordinary domestic The 1851 census ten years earlier has put the number of governesses in Britain at twenty five thousand which meant that employers like the Popes could afford to be very selective and to pay low wages Sometimes as little as 8 a year was offered for a day governess i e one who lived out a similar wage to that of a housemaid In her final post as a governess Charlotte Bronte received just 20 a year of which 7 was deducted for laundry By 1865 the Popes had been replaced at Laverstock by John Lenthall and his family Lenthall who farmed about 250 acres here was succeeded by his son John Henry Lenthall 1837 1924c who in 1911 told the census enumerator that his house contained twelve rooms including the kitchen but excluding any sculleries landings lobbies closets or bathrooms He and his wife Alice 44 had been married for nineteen years and had produced two children Eli 18 and Janie 15 The family was completed by John Henry s widowed mother Jane Lenthall 79 There are no very adequate records covering the period 1925 to 1930 but Kelly s Directory for the County of Dorset for 1931 places Laverstock House in the occupation of Eric Reid Corson 1887 1972 M V O a
