People and Places Discussed and Pictured in Chapter 44 of:
Since establishing this website at www.pulham.org.uk, I have been contacted by several people, either offering help and information, or asking for it. Some of these, including Chris Pulham, Ian Denney, Michael Goodchild and David Moreton, were descended from the Pulham family themselves, and were very happy to help by providing information about which I could otherwise never have known. Others, like Susan Williams, helped me to trace a Pulham fountain to its present home in Las Vegas, and some people have been good enough to point me in the direction of hitherto unrecorded Pulham gardens.
They have all helped to make my research a fascinating and rewarding experience, and I have also received endorsement and encouragement for my work by such National organisations as English Heritage, the National Trust, the Garden History Society, and the Heritage Lottery Fund. In return, my confirmation of the provenance of some Pulham park sites has helped to support applications for restoration grants from the Lottery Fund.
