Catchfrench, St Germans


Notes: In the late C16 Catchfrench, principal house in the manor of Bonyalva, passed by marriage from the Talverne family to George Kekewich. He rebuilt the house in 1580 following a fire. In 1646 Dorothy Kekewich married Francis Fox, and subsequently moved from Catchfrench to Fowey. During the mid and late C17 Catchfrench passed through several hands, before being sold in 1728 to Julius Glanville. It was remodelled in the late 18th century. In October 1792 the owner, Francis Glanville, invited Humphry Repton to advise on the improvement of the grounds. The garden was laid out to Repton's designs, and features terraced lawns and shrubs including rhododendrons, azaleas and magnolias. The estate remained the property of the Glanville family until 1930, when it was sold and passed through several hands before being acquired in 1987 by the present owners who have undertaken a programme of restoration. The site remains (2000) in private ownership. [Parks and Gardens; English Heritage, National List ; accessed 07 Oct 2014]
