Heathfield House was bought in 1868 by
Arthur (XIII), Viscount Valentia, and
was used as a dower house for his mother
and her second husband, George Talbot
Devereux. After their respective deaths
in 1884 and 1898, Arthur (XIII) leased
it out regularly. Finally, after his
death in 1927, his son Caryl sold the
property to Col. John Alsager Pollock.
As the letters in 3D/28 below show,
Pollock borrowed some money from Caryl
Annesley to pay for the property, but
reneged on his payments, and the house
had to be repossessed and was eventually
sold again in 1935.
Earlier deeds on this property may be
found at E6/3/20D above.
