Interesting Facts about Boscombe Manor.

1273 "Boscombe" first appears in the record books, the name is believed to be derived from the Old English words meaning a 'valley overgrown with spiky plants' perhaps a reference to gorse.

In 1849 Sir Percy Florence Shelley purchased “Boscombe Manor” intending it to be the home of his mother Mary Shelley - most famous for her book Frankenstein, but she died before she took residence, instead Sir Percy decided to make it his seaside home, hence various road and place names with the  Percy / Shelley reference. In later years parts of the estate would be sold to satisfy the huge demand for affluent housing, in 1875 there were 244 houses and by 1901 Boscombe had 9648 residences. By the 20th century Boscombe became one of Bournemouth's wealthiest areas..
