Gosberton Hall

Sue Knight provided this reminiscence of her family’s connection with Gosberton Hall. 

My father was a boarder at the school and sent this card to his sister in 1904.  He was called Edward Freeman Smith (1889-1972) and lived at Maxey.  My grandfather, Edward Whitfield of Langtoft also attended the school at roughly the same time, (my father was the same age as my mother’s father as there was a 33 year age gap).  Both men were farmer’s sons and both went into farming with the Whitfields still farming in the Langtoft area.

Thanks Sue

    It is lovely to see this picture I have heard a lot about Gosberton Hall as my grandfather also went to school here he was born in 1886.He hated every minute of and saved up his pocket money when had enough funds he caught a train home only to be promptly returned by his mother.On one occasion he had to stay there during the holidays due to an outbreak of typhoid at home! He too came from a farming family they were from lincolnshire
