A Memory of Barwick

I wish there was more history related to the house. I'm very interested to know how it was used before it became a place of bad memories. I am sorry to hear it became a reform school where children were abused but I am doing my family research and this used to be called Barwick Manor in the 16th century. My 13th great grandfather, Sir John Symes, was born in this house.
