Historical Note:

The original Bifrons House was believed to have been built in the early 1600s and a new house was constructed at the end of the 18th century. During the 1800s the estate was owned by Lord Henry Conyngham and his beautiful wife Elizabeth who became the mistress of the Prince Regent, later George IV, until his death. She lived her latter years at Bifrons until her death at the age of 92. Her son Francis was Willian IV’s Lord Chamberlain and it was he who brought the news to Victoria that her uncle had died and she was now Queen.

Bifrons House was sadly demolished in 1948 but many of the estate’s properties still exist including Copse End that at one time was the laundry and later became a school. (The road leading to Copse End was originally called Laundry Lane but more recently had its name changed to Conyngham Lane to reflect its passed associations.)
