The property known as Woodway has an interesting history which can be traced through several generations of this family. Details are available at
http://en.academic.ru/dic.nsf/enwiki/3335204. "Woodway had formerly been a farm, originally constructed in the form of a Devon 'Long-House' until Captain James Spratt R.N. built the large cob and thatch cottage on the front in around 19815. A Mansion House on the lower boundary of the Woodway grounds was known as Gorway. Demolished in the 1970s, it was named after the Norman baron, Serlo de la Gore. Woodway would have been part of its feudal holdings and could have been the home farm. " Many details are given in this article about the life of Commander James Spratt and family.
