AMATEUR historian Elizabeth Hazeldine spoke about the history of Phyllis Court at the April meeting of the society.
Miss Hazeldine lives in Damer Gardens, Henley, and runs Henley Heritage Walks, hosting guided tours and “murder walks” in the town.
She spoke about the families who have lived at the estate in Phyllis Court Drive from the first records in the 14th century to the modern day.
The manor was originally known as Fillets Court, with the name thought to come from “fillide”, the Old English word for hay.
The name was gradually corrupted until it became Phyllis Court, as it is known today.
