Administrative / Biographical History

In 1988 the Georgian Society for East Yorkshire published a paperback book titled 'Lost Houses of East Yorkshire'. The purpose of the book was to collate descriptions, histories and images of country houses in the region that have now been demolished and so are no longer extant. Two members of the society were tasked with the work of researching and writing the book, these were Dr David Neave and Mr Edward Waterson.
