Bev Marnewick née Coutts, Mrs Daisy and Sutton Veny House

Name: Bev Marnewick née Coutts
In 1971 I had the pleasure of staying with my great aunt Mrs Daisy (Hinton) I think, who was the house keeper at Sutton Veny House, she stayed in what was once the coach mans courters that had been converted into a cottage for her. Her husband had started at the house as a junior Gardener and before retiring was the head gardener, and after retiring still maintained the rose garden. They had bought a row of cottages just outside the house and lived in one of them until her husband passed away and was then asked to come and be housekeeper. I had the pleasure of been shown around the house it was such a lovely lived in home, I have very fond memories of that time.
