History

Gilstead Hall, dating back to 1726, was for many years the home of the Wrights, who were prominent Catholic Bankers and good friends of a certain Lord Byron, known to have been a frequent visitor and good friend to the family. The building was extended to the east in the mid 18th century. In 1863 it was a boys’ boarding school and then from c. 1900 to 1937 or later, home of the Crawshay family. The property was finally converted into eight apartments 31 years ago in 1989.
