Synopsis

Ralph Coney was an engineer with Cunard before becoming a lecturer with the department of Marine Engineering at the Southampton Technical College. During the ensuing 27 years he saw the College become the Southampton Institute of Higher Education. For 14 years of this period he was the resident Warden of Townhill Park House, until he retired in 1984. He was able to obtain previously unpublished photos and information regarding its history.

Jim Brown is a Sotonian and former Southampton Police Sergeant and Chief Security & Safety Officer at the Southampton Container Terminal. Since his retirement in 1990 he has enthusiastically researched the towns past and is the author of many books on its history. He is Vice-President of Bitterne Local History Society, a member of The Friends of Southampton Old Cemetery and the Hampshire Genealogical Society.

This book is an account of the origins and history of Townhill Park House over the past 200 years. Detailed information is given of its occupancy by Lord & Lady Swaythling, with illustrations of the house and grounds during the height of its splendour.
