1862 – 1888 William Budd

Henry Budd’s son William was probably the most important influence on the developement of Twickenham Park after his father’s death.

William Budd married Sarah Susannah Marshall in January 1838 in Bloomsbury, London. She was the widow of Thomas Marshall a captain in the British Army in the East Indies. Following his death she returned to England. The story of her first marriage can be found on the above link.

1850 Birth daughter Phebe Budd Budd

William and Sarah’s next child Phebe Budd Budd was born 27th April 1850 at Fir Grove Sunninghill Berkshire. The house was later renamed Sandy Ride but was demolished late 20th century.

We believe William Budd at this time was having a new house bult for him just north of St Ronan’s in Winkfield, so they may have lived at Fir Grove for a short period.
