Old house name re. Robinswood, The Street Cobham Gravesend.

My daughter and husband bought and now live in Robinswood, 9 The Street Cobham, Gravesend. I am researching the history of this large Victorian mansion. I believe that the name had been changed and I would like to find out the original name given to this house. Can you help me please?

  • I would speak to the Haig family at halfpenny cottage on the corner of halfpenny lane - two cottages knocked in to one. They have been there years and have had other generations live in the village. Or try the customers in the pubs most have been in the village for years.
