Former Sandhill Manor House

This is a picture of me outside of the old front entrance to the former Sandhill Manor house. This is now the rear of Forres Sandle Manor School near Fordingbridge. The central section of this building is still the original, possibly Elizabethan. The entranceway is claimed to be Jacobean and would have looked the same when my ancestors lived here. The rest of the enlarged building follows the same style but is either additions or rebuilt. Inside I think that the only original part of the building is a wooden staircase.

Carolinian coin

This is a coin found in the grounds of the former Sandhill Manor and was minted at the start of the restored reign of King Charles II. As Robert Blachford held the manor till his death in 1670 it is quite possible that he once owned and held this coin.

Sandhill Manor, near Fordingbridge

This is a sketch of the old Sandhill Manor as it probably looked in the 16th and into the early 17th century. I don't know where the sketch is from or when it was produced but it was kindly shared with my be Forres Sandle Manor school.

Will of Robert Blachford 1670

This is the signature and seal of Robert Blachford on his will of 1670, from Hampshire Archives. As Robert was sick at the time the will was made the signature he made is just a shaky mark in what looks to be the shape of an 'R'.
