After searching the British Newspaper Archive website using this name I have been able to find various death and marriage notices, which mention Bloomville Hall in Hacheston and give an insight into the families that have lived there over the years.

Firstly I found the marriage on 6th May 1851 between Thomas ROSE and Harriet Anne HANBURY widow of Edward HANBURY Esq. of Bloomville Hall and sixth daughter of John COBBOLD Esq,
