Dodington Family History

Horsington Hall

Located in Somerset, it was the "family home" for many years, but was sold in the early part of this century.  Then it became an orphanage, then a hotel, and now (photo 12/98) it is being converted into flats.  There is an adjacent church, St. Johns Horsington, which has plaques to various ancestors.  A few miles away is Stowell, which has a church with additional ancestral tombs and records.
