Money Hill House taken in August 1891

Money Hill House, Rickmansworth in August 1891.

Although the house was constructed in 1722, it enclosed an Elizabethan hall and fireplace with a Jacobean staircase. It was said to have been originally a Dower House and that Cardinal Wolsey had slept in it. It was owned by William Plaistowe, partner in the Rickmansworth Bank which failed in 1826, the solicitor Thomas Fellowes, Reginald Capel, son of the Earl of Essex and Director of the Great Northern Railway and Thomas Andrews, designer of the Titanic, who went down with it in 1912.
