Hollies Avenue, DA15

Place Name

Named after the substantial villa that was built on the site of a Tudor mansion called Marrowbon or Marrowbone Hall in AD1853 – AD1854 for the Lewin family, who purchased an estate at Halfway Street sometime around AD1782. A map of AD1799 has the house recorded as Bone Hall but the name was probably changed to The Hollies sometime around AD1810 following Richard Lewin’s death. In AD1899 the house was sold and became a children’s home.
