History[edit]

Historically, Bramshill was an estate owned by the Lord of the Manor, residing at Bramshill House. The last incumbent was Lord Brockett, who sold the estate in 1952 to pay for death duties incurred on the death of his son. Until the sale of the estate, residents of Bramshill rented their houses very cheaply, the landlord being responsible for all repairs.
