I met a gentleman at Billericay library yesterday at the History event there. I was asking him whether he knew anything about Wickford Hall. I believe that John Robert Spurling and his family lived there for a while sometime around 1910 onwards. He was a wealthy wharfinger from Bethnal Green. He gradually moved out of Middlesex, going up in the world each move. After Wickford Hall, I think he was at Downham Grange, before buying Hill House Farm in Billericay, where he died in 1933. Would be interested if you know anymore about him or Wickford Hall.
