John Fitzgerald bought Boulge Hall in 1801 for his daughter Mary and her new husband, John Purcell (later John Fitzgerald), Edwards parents. The purchase was on the understanding that the hall would remain in the possession of the aged previous owner until death, which didn't happen for another 35 years. The couple lived instead at nearby Bredfield House but eventually moved into Boulge Hall. Edward occupied a cottage in the grounds until the estate was inherited by his elder brother in 1852.
The hall was later purchased by Sir Robert Eaton White, 1st Baronet(1864-1940), Chairman of the Suffolk County Council, whose descendants held it until c.1950.
It was demolished in 1955 owing to its general dereliction.
