Interesting Facts about Boscombe.
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.
