Seward House

Slightly tangential, this is from Berrow's Worcester Journal of Thursday March 10, 1763, and announces the disposal of Seward house some ten years after the death of Benjamin and Elizabeth. Their sons-in-law William Snooke and Richard Hall are mentioned at the end.
To be LETT, and Entered upon Immediately,

THE Dwelling-House of the late Benjamin Sheward, Esq; at Bengworth, in Worcestershire (a most agreeable Situation, and healthful Air) very near the Town of Evesham; consisting of a large handsome Stone Kitchen and Laundry, two Halls, two Parlours, five Bed Chambers, two Dressing-Rooms, a Drawing Room, and five Garrets, with two large Cellars, and other convenient Offices : The Whole being in very good Repair, and the Rooms neatly wainscoted : With a large Garden, and an Orchard well planted with the best of Fruit Trees - The River Avon runs at the Bottom of the Garden, and there is a large Stable, &c fit for any Gentleman.
