Princes Risborough Burial - 10 Mar 1816 Thomas PARSLOW aged 74 of Speen, many years Gamekeeper to Mr Grubb of Horsendon House. (A rellie).

Wikipedia isn't much help. Just the fact that Singer Jay Kay from Jamiroquai resides at Horsenden.

Portrait of John Grubb. This may not be the John Grubb in question, but he seems a fine chap, in any case, Possibly the Father, or Grandfather.

John Grubbe sold it to the Duke of Buckingham and Chandos. The latter mortgaged it almost immediately, and the holders of the mortgage, the Norwich Union Office, foreclosed and sold it in 1842 or 1843 to the Rev. William Edwards Partridge, who held it till his death in 1886. The manor then passed into the possession of his daughter and heiress, Mrs. Leonard Jaques, the present owner of the manor.

I was going to ask some questions about the House and Manor, but I found out my answers already.:rolleyes:

So I thought I'd post this for interest.:2fun:
