10 Adams Road

History of Grange Farm, Adams Road


Evelyn Hopkinson moved to 9 Adams Road next door to her son Bertram at no.10.

Bertram and his wife Marianne were living at 5 Harvey Road when their daughter Alice was born in 1905. They moved back to 10 Adams Road in 1907 after a new house had been built for them.


Evelyn Hopkinson took her granddaughter Alice to South Africa in 1922. While away, she arranged for the construction of the Oak Room at 9 Adams Road. The room was equipped with two grand pianos and lots of sofas and armchairs.

Alice was now a medical student at Newnham College.


Alice married Jack Roughton. They move to 35 Millington Road.
