1 "Boss of Smithfield market" MUSGRAVE, John Christopher (I998)
 
2 "QUEEN CAMEL, a parish in the hundred of Catsash, in the county of Somerset, 5 miles to the E. of Ilchester, its post town. It is situated on the small river Camel, a branch of the Yee, and is crossed by the Somerset and Weymouth section of the Great Western railway. It was formerly a market town, and a place of some importance. The living is a vicarage* in the diocese of Bath and Wells, value 222, in the patronage of P. St. J. Mildmay, Esq. The church is dedicated to St. Barnabas. The Wesleyans have a chapel in the village. The parochial charities are worth about 10 a year. Near the village is a hill commanding a fine view over the rich surrounding country, including about 40 towns and villages. Close to the river is a sulphureous spring. Two annual fairs are held on Trinity Tuesday and the 25th October." From The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868) Transcribed by Colin Hinson 2003

Details:
Large landscaped park belonging to Hazelgrove House.

Parks and gardens Register entry reads: "C18 landscape park with formal garden in front of house, approximately 70ha. C17 core to house, remodelled 1732 by John and William Bastard. house faces south- south-west, at northern end of park. Arched entrance gateway on Sparkford road (c.1690, from Low Ham, date of erection at Hazelgrove uncertain) leads into south- eastern side of park. Drive from gateway flanked by avenue of trees running north- west for 330m. Drive then curves northward to north-east for 1km through open parkland with scattered mature trees, arriving at entrance gates closing the main axis of formal garden area before the house. The drive divides, one part following the central axis towards the house, the other skirting the southern and eastern side of a ha-ha which encloses the formal area. Between the entrance gates and the house the formal area extends symmetrically for approximately 200m. A pair of Chamaecyparis lawsonia erecta flank the drive inside the gates, with extensive lawn to left and right. Nearer to the house the drive surrounds a central area of grass, with urns to left and right and a large circular bed in the centre. Herbaceous bedding to each side of the central flight of steps from the house. Further bedding and shrubs to east of house, with informal lawn and scattered trees extending eastwards. To west and north-west of house, rectangular walled vegetable gardens, approximately 1ha, thickly surrounded by trees.".

John Thomas of Queen Camel built the arched entrance in 1873--4 [His account book Somerset Record Office DD/X/MOO 1, and an elevation plan SRO DD/X/MOO 8].

The same book shows he did extensive work in the gardens, stone edgings, removing the statues and putting in foundations for vases etc in the 1870s, he also built the ha-ha in 1853, and lots of other things as he and his sons did all the building work in the area from 1850s to 1930s and kept a record of every job they did.

There is also a lot of information on the alterations to the grounds in the Mildmay's memo books in SRO DD/MI but unfortunately they were written from memory long after they had left Hazelgrove and virtually all the dates are wrong - they thought everything was done about 10 years earlier than it actually was.

39 Annie's age is shown as 21 on this certificate. This is not true. Perhaps she was not able to gain her parents' consent, and therefore exaggerated her age. There is also some doubt whether the father quoted was in fact her father. He may well have been her grandfather, as she was illegitimate. Family F32
