The History of Yeomanry House, Reading

An online talk by Katie Amos

Sitting at the junction of Coley Avenue, Castle Hill, Bath Road and Tilehurst Road, and hidden by trees, Yeomanry House is perhaps a little ignored in comparison to the other big houses in the area. Until recently, it was home to Berkshire Family History Society and the Berkshire Register Office, but what of its past, and where does its name come from? From its origins on the fringes of the town, confusing house names (it was previously called Castle Hill House, as was another in the same area), to polite society, a school, military links and weddings, this house has seen it all. Discover its history and some of the families associated with it – the Sherwood’s, Jesse’s, Levett’s, Fiennes and more.


Pre-booking is required.
