To The Edmeades Family - a Memory of Wrotham.
I don't have any memories of Wrotham Place, but I am in possession of a considerable amount of private papers from the Edmeades family and many photos and private letters from family members during the first and second world wars. Also estate accounts from early 1900's, also wedding lists, wills, marriage and death certificates. There's also the Inventory and Valuation of the household furniture, silver plate, jewellery and personal effects from Dec 1929. There's a document from the district valuer from 1942 listing all properties to be valued for probate plus many, many more documents. I came into possession of all these papers over 15 yrs ago when we owned a shop in Kent, but have always felt that they should be with the rightful owners - hopefully any existing members of the Edmeades family.
