Records of Waddon Hospital (formerly Borough Isolation Hospital)

  • WAD
  • Collection
  • 1930 - 1983

Registers of admission of Waddon Hospital. Some indexed. The building of an infectious diseases hospital was first promulgated in 1890, and in December 1893 pressure increased when permission was refused for the construction of a fever hospital at Grange Wood. This was especially important since in the period 1885 - 90 Croydon had become notorious for its high incidence of epidemic diseases. The hospital opened on 6 June 1896 and was extended in 1900 and 1911. The name was changed to"Waddon Hospital" in 1945, and as the incidence of infectious diseases decreased, the hospital became used for the care of the elderly and pioneering eye operations. In this latter use the hospital became internationally renowned since many of the procedures were filmed as teaching aids. In 1981 large scale bed-closures were proposed in the borough in the light of Government spending cuts, simultaneous with the opening of the new District Hospital and Waddon Hospital was one of the victims. There was little opposition, since the hospital was recognised to be obsolescent. The hospital finally closed in 1984, and the site was given over to residential development in 1991. Croydon Local Studies Library holds several photographs of Waddon Hospital (Photo Ref: 362 Waddon), also a printed report on a proposed new Epidemic Hospital by Leonard Wilde (Ref: pS70 (362) CRO) and an invitation card for the opening of the hospital in 1896 (Ref: pS70 (362) CRO)

Records of the Byron Family of Coulsdon Court

  • AR1057
  • Collection
  • 1755 - 1975

The Byron Family were Lords of the Manor and residents of Coulsdon from the purchase of the Manor in 1782 until the sale of the estate and its dispersal in 1921. The archive covers the entire period and continues beyond the sale of Coulsdon estate, with documents through to 1962.

The Byron Archival Collection (AR1057) is a substantial collection of papers covering the domestic, social, business and farming history of the family, their role and relationship as local squires with the wider community of Coulsdon and Surrey, and the extensive foreign travels undertaken by members of the family.

Papers relating to the early decades are relatively sparse and the strength of the archive lies with the years when Thomas and then Edmund Byron held the Manor and estate, 1845-1921, continuing with Edmund’s children through to the 1940s. During these years, the archive has the breadth and depth for thorough and detailed research into this middle squirearchy landed family who were deeply rooted in and committed to the small rural community which was their home. Attention is particularly drawn to Edmund’s six decades as Lord of the Manor. To him lies the distinction of preserving the traditional – and in many respects patriarchal – rural life of the village from 1863 until his death in 1921. The archive is very strong in its coverage of Edmund’s eventful life and that of his four children, as is indicated in the Series descriptions of the archive.

The archive was originally read, noted and arranged by members of The Bourne Society, Surrey and this work has provided a number of papers that supplement the catalogue entries. These papers include Excel spreadsheets, some of which are quite detailed, covering nearly the whole archive, and summaries of a large part of the personal family correspondence. Produced for the purpose of developing the catalogue, these entries identify only the name of the relevant Series for each item and the item accession number and there has been much further refinement in catalogue numbering since their production. They are available on request to support specific areas of interest and research.

The Collection consists of 14 series:

AR1057/1- Personal Correspondence
AR1057/2- Family and Non-Family Settlements-Marriage, Wills and Trusts
AR1057/3- Domestic and Family Expenses and Accounts
AR1057/4- Outdoor Sports
AR1057/5- Public Offices and Family Philanthropy
AR1057/6- Journal and Memoirs
AR1057/7- Personal Records and Ephemera
AR1057/8- Business Correspondence and Estate Management
AR1057/9- Property Purchases and Valuations and Property Sales Before 1921
AR1057/10- Valuations and Property Sales After 1921
AR1057/11- Leases and Deeds
AR1057/12- Ledgers, Rental Income and Account Books
AR1057/13- Shares and Bond Holdings
AR1057/14- Solicitors' Accounts
