Whatcombe Stables - a Memory of Letcombe Bassett.

My grandfather, John Carstairs, moved to Whatcombe after partition in  Ireland. He had been Land Steward for Captain Cliff of Belle Vue, Wexford but was described on his death certificate (1931) as formerly electrician at racing stables. He lived at  Whatcombe Cottages. After his death, the family moved to Fawley. We have no family papers as his widow deliberately destroyed everything before she died.
They must have been known to Fred Hollis. Any information, photos would be appreciated
