Broughton House – history

James Wilson

The photo is of James Wilson, who with his wife, became the owner of Broughton House on 21st July 1947 when they bought it from Ted Coleman.  Mr Wilson’s hobby was racehorses.
The photo was kindly provided by Joyce Perry, grand-daughter of Mr and Mrs Wilson.
Wright
Documents given for publication by Peter and Jane Blackburn-Maze include an identure made on the 14th October 1907 which names Florence Marion King and Richard Burrough Hopkins who was to marry Elizabeth Alice Wright.  She was the daughter of George Wright, born 1828 in Malton and who died in 1886.  His wife was Elizabeth Borton, 1838 to 1906 who was the daughter of John Borton and Elizabeth Cass of Amotherby.
It is likely that it was during the Wrights’ ownership of Broughton Villa, as it was then known, that the house was knocked down and re-built.
Coleman
On the 30th September 1922 there was an indenture between John Henry Coleman and Emily Gertrude Coleman.  Between November 1931 and the deed of release in 1940 are recoreded a legal charge between J H Coleman and E G Coleman and Reginald William Lund the Right Hon Stuart Lund Holland Baron Rotherham Roger Henry Wethered and Reginald Dekyn Lund.
The Wilsons were to sell to Thomas King, farmer, and his wife Ethel Helena King who had the stores at Aislaby, near Pickering.  They were to sell to Gilbert Snell, farmer,  who came from Steer Arms, Bolton near Doncaster.
There is also a plan showing the sale of land (by Mr Coleman under a compulsory purchase order) on which to build the ten houses which comprise Beech Crescent.
In the 1960s a piece of land fronting Main Street on which to build a bungalow was sold to Stephen Fox, butcher of Malton.
Two further plans which were provided for Broughton House have also been given for inclusion on the web-site – one of these clearly shows the cricket field marked out on land in front of Oak Farm.
PDFs
The above documents have all been scanned to PDF.
Because of the limitations on the size PDFs can be uploaded, they have been split into “manageable” chunks.  Unfortunately this does make it more tedious for viewing.
