Wondering Bride

Lewtrenchard Manor dates from the early 17th century. It's owner, Sir Thomas Monk was thrown in jail for debts owed so in order to settle his debts he was forced to sell Lewtrenchard Manor. He sold the home to Henry Gould who have owned the home for generations and have a long history there.

One of the most famous ghosts of Lewtrenchard Manor is said to be Susannah Gould who was married on March 19th 1729. After the ceremony she was walking up the drive of the house when all of a sudden she dropped dead of a heart attack. They say she can still be seen walking sadly down the drive of Lewtranchard Manor in her wedding dress.

In 1777 Margaret Gould took over the property after her son Edward had died and squandered the family fortune on gambling. She was an amazing business woman and not only did she repay all debts the family owed but also built up the fortune enough to make a great deal of improvements to the home. After she died, she simply could not leave her beloved Lewtrenchard Manor and can be seen wondering the Long Gallery.

Through marriage the family name of Gould changed to a double name of Baring-Gould. Sabine Baring-Gould was both the local squire as well as the local vicar. He met at young 16 year old mill gilr and after making sure she had an education he married her and they were happily married for 48 years and produced 15 children. He loved Lewtrenchard Manor and devoted himself for keeping the manor in impeccable condition. It is for this reason that Lewtrenchard Manor is in the condition it is today.

Like Margaret Gould, Sabine Baring-Gould could not part with Lewtrenchard Manor and is said to still wonder the grounds, making sure the Manor is well taken care of.

If memory serves the MH team have bungled there way through there at some point which might or might not work in our favour! Perhaps they want some people to do it properly lol!

Right I shut up for a bit now!
