We have been contacted by a lady who is researching the life and work of the landscape gardener, Madeline Agar.
Madeline was one of the first women professionals in this field and was also a founder member of the Institute of Landscape Architects.
It is believed that her father Edward Agar, owned Milford House and that the Agar family remained in the area after his death in 1927.
At one time Madeline is thought to have lived with her niece at Thurston, Sea Road, Milford on sea.
If any of the Agar family still live in the area or if anyone knows more about Madeline, please contact: Leanne Newman by clicking here.
