It was the home of the Fry family, possibly from 1819 and certainly through that century till the last of the Fry sisters died in 1907.
And it is a story I keep returning to, partly because it says a lot about a middling family here in Eltham during the 19th century and because it is a case book example of how you start with a name, go on to locate the family home and along the way discover that a property you thought lost is still there.
Now all of that you can read about by following the link to Ivy Court, John Fry or the Fry sisters.
I fear nothing will remain of the original features, but the firm may be in possession of the deeds which will date the building tell us a lot about the Fry family and may well throw up other interesting stories.
