Agents Note - The OBS (Olivia Bernard Sparrow) Cottages were built in the mid 19th Century by Lady Olivia Bernard Sparrow, who at the time owned South and East Hall Farms. During her lifetime, Lady Olivia strove to provide an education for the poorer children of Essex. During the early 19th Century, there was no formal education system and the only schools which did exist were private, fee paying ones. The vast majority of poor children were therefore deprived of an education. Lady Olivia was responsible for the construction of Day Schools and, with the help of Reverend Herschell, ensured that many of the poorer children of Hadleigh and Leigh were taught to read and write, providing opportunities previously denied to them.
