Boulge Was My Home - a Memory of Woodbridge.

My family owned the Boulge Hall estate at the time of your photograph. I was christened in Boulge Church in 1940.
I am the 3rd Baronet of Boulge Hall and the last of the line.
The summer house on the right of the picture was built by my grandfather Sir Robert Eaton White.
I remember Boulge well throughout my childhood. How sad that it was demolished.
I have some faded photos of the interior and a couple of others of the outside.
Nothing else remains.

I am in the process of transcribing a number of documents relating to Boulge Hall and Bredfield which my 5x Great grandfather Rev Samuel Wood of Woodbridge appears to have purchased from one John Lawrence of Felixstowe in 1736/7 for £614.15s. It was left to his son, also Rev Samuel Wood of Framlingham and subsequently to his widow Mary nee Meadows. I visited the church some 6 weeks ago but am so disappointed to read that the Hall was demolished - I would love to have seen it. Many thanks for the information.
