    Bio in ?Worthies of Devon?.
    West Ogwell House:
    Rebecca, grand-daughter of Thomas and Frances Reynell, married Joseph TAYLOR, a seaman of Queen Anne's reign. She inherited West Ogwell House, but did not live there. The building got quite ruinous. Her son Thomas Taylor began in 1751 to rebuild the front of the house, and put on a new roof. He went on making improvements until 1790. (The Courtenays at Powderham are said to have a portrait of Thomas, by Opie.)
    The Taylor family eventually found the estate a drain on their resources, and sold it in 1869 to Daniel Robert SCRATTON, who added another block to the house. Then it passed to a Mr ISAAC. In WW1 it was for a short time used as a convalescent home for NZ soldiers. In 1925 it was bought for
    Exeter Diocese, but in WW2 it was occupied by a school run by nuns. In 1943 it became the Convent of the Community of the Good Shepherd, and they ran it until 1996. They then moved to Clewer (Windsor), and the present owners are the Gaia House Trust, which one could call a 'New Age' group.
    (from "The Story of West Ogwell House", Barbara Gibson, pub abt 1970.)
