Great Niece Of Joseph Henry Lachlan White

A Memory of Bredfield

My great uncle's home. I had heard about Bredfield House all my life because it belonged to my great uncle, Joseph Henry Lachlan White. I only saw it in 1960, however, long after it had been demolished because of damage during the war, I presume. Since childhood, I have been fascinated by the fact that Bredfield House was the birthplace of Edward Fitzgerald, translator of Omar Khayyam's Rubaiyat. My family collected editions of The Rubaiyat and I, too, have collected them. I would love to re-visit the town of Bredfield and show Bredfield House to my son, Jason Lachlan White. My name is Margot Lachlan White. I find these postings delightful and I have very much enjoyed reading them.
