Boscobel in the 1890s

Joan Stevens' Old Jersey Houses suggests that this house was built and named in 1651, the year when the future King Charles II hid in an oak tree at Boscobel farmhouse in Shropshire, after the Battle of Worcester.

The Le Montais family, who had significant land holdings in the area, were known to have been staunch Royalists, and it is suggested that they built the house.

The picture on this page is owned by the Canadian branch of the Bosdet family, and is believed to have been taken during the 1890, when Boscobel was owned by members of the Bosdet family.
