A Romantic History 
Canford Manor House and Estate, historically the main residence in the area, incorporating many other houses, lands and stables was purchased in 1846 by Lord and Lady Guest, parents of the future Lord Ivor Wimborne. (It is believed that parts of the original Manor House date back to the 14th Century and used as the main residence of John of Gaunt for some time. The main residence was sold in 1923 becoming Canford School). Between 1867 and 1904, designed by the Gothic revivalist, Sir Charles Barry junior (son of the architect of the Houses of Parliament), 111 really distinctive buildings known as Lady Wimborne Cottages (named after Lord and Lady Guest's daughter in law, Lady Cornelia Wimborne) were built for estate workers. The residential cottages all display a terracotta plaque bearing the coat of arms of the Wimborne family and a number denoting the chronological order of construction. Being one of the earliest, we are delighted to offer for sale number 16.
