Notes for Samuel BODDINGTON JP

Of Solihull, Warwickshire, UK. Samuel lived at Hillfield Hall, Solihull, built in the 15th century and is a listed building now converted to apartments, as is the adjoining stable block. Samuel moved c.1917 to Widney Manor Farm about two miles up the road; he extended the original cottages and named them The Chase. He bred shire horses and hunting dogs there until his death in 1936. Samuel was a member of the North Warwickshire Hunt. His groom and chaufeur was a man called Hart whose son later established the motor repair garage and petrol pump in Claverdon village (where I, the webmaster, was brought up).

The Chase was bought by Captain Oliver Bird MC in 1937, he being from the Birds Custard family.

Samuel's great grandson, Simon Boddington, began work at Samuel Boddington & Sons Ltd of 21 Cannon Street and continues in this trade, though not the company, into the 21st century.
