    My name is George Shaw and I live in Johannesburg. I am transcribing a “Cash Book” written by a great uncle, Col. Wilkinson Jocelyn Shaw (1834-1911). He built a house in Heath End which he called “The Warren”. An entry in his Cash Book reads, “Our new house “The Warren” at Heath End. On 14 September [1887] the house was inspected by the surveyor, Mr Howard Martin ― We then made preparations for moving in but the workman still had things to finish & we were delayed thereby ― On the 12th October we finally took possession”. Does this house still stand? If so what is its street address? Is it possible for me to get a photograph of the house? I would be very grateful for any information and or assistance you can provide.
    Sincerely
    George Shaw

      if you link to the following site you will be taken to a page from an estate agent that not only shows the house but internal features as well. https://www.onthemarket.com/details/4134823

      Good luck and I hope it is everything you are looking for.

      Best regards

        Surrey History Centre hold a set of auction details for ‘The Warren’ dated 14 December 1977, at ref. SP/1200. The house was being sold at the instigation of the Secretary of State for Defence, so it appears that, latterly, the house had been part of the military college, which had then relocated a few miles away, to Aldershot.

        The auction details contain the phrase ‘permission to develop the land is likely to be given’ which appears to have been the case. The house was, shortly thereafter, completely demolished and a small estate of houses built over its site.

        I think the link you have provided is therefore for one of the properties built on the estate in the late 1970s/early 1980s. There are a number of similar properties on what is now a road called The Warren.

        Col. Wilkinson Jocelyn Shaw did live in the property for a short while as he appears in the 1893 Electoral Register as resident at The Warren. However, by the time of his death in 1911 he had moved to Bath.
