Mulgrave Castle

Mulgrave Castle

Mulgrave Castle is a large country house, home to the Marquis of Normanby.  The core of the building was built before 1753 and two wings were added in the 1780s.   It was completed between 1805 and 1816 with the addition of towers, turrets and further battlements and a projecting entrance hall.  The gardens are occasionally opened for charity. Michael Grey tells us: ”My grandparents, Thomas William Brownbridge (Handyman) and Ruby Mona Richmond (Domestic) were in service at the New Castle during the late 30′s to 40′s.” We have had a request from Valerie Ramsay: ”I am trying to find out information about Daisy May Jackson and Fredrick William Garbut who were in service at mulgrave Castle from 1914 to 1922. As I am trying to put some thing together for my Mum.” Please contact the ECIA if anyone can assist with this research.

    My grandparents, Thomas William Brownbridge (Handyman) and Ruby Mona Richmond (Domestic) were in service at the New Castle during the late 30’s to 40’s. I was wondering if there would be any reference to them in any of the archives?
