Dad used to play around the old house during the last War. There was a caretaker in residence at the time but the place was decaying fast. I can't remember when it was finally demolished but very little can now be seen at ground level. I will see if he can email me some of his memories of the place at that time and up to demolition.

Odd that they lived in Tynwald House as the Tynwald is the Manx Parliament and the Aged Parent lives on the Isle of Man and has done so for many years. Small World really...

Thanks Sentinel S4

The house must have been large and strange to think, nothing remains today.


regards

Hello

I am researching Tynwald House in Hythe where Charles Twopeny lived when he was Mayor of Hythe. If anyone has any family history of Charles I would be most pleased and appreciative to receive it.

Thank you

David Cowell

The house was demolished many years ago and from little of what I remember, it was in a poor state. A few months ago I made a special trip in order to ascertain whether there was anything remaining but, from a distance, was unable to see anything.
Any further information may eventually come from granderog and SentinelS4.

Thank you Bryn, I am grateful.  I gather that the house doesn't stand anymore and not sure of an exact date!

Kind Regards
Mike

Would members know if Woodstock Park, once the home of the Twopeny family still stands?   I think from memory the building was/is on land now owned by Shell Research, Sittingbourne.

I have found that Sidney Edward Twopeny died aged 17 of Woodstock Park died October 12rh 1901.  His death meant the end of the Twopeny family name, after Charles Twopeny, a Mayor of Hythe between 1919-1922.   I wondered if anyone had details of the old house, please?


With thx

Mike
