1902HistoryWiggs [als Parkgrove]Sutton's Historical Notes
Park Grove was formerly known as Wigg's Farm and JohnWygg lived in the old farm-house in 1597. In 1730 it was owned by the Edwards famile, andin 1838 by Mr. James Patching, who sold the estate in 1874 to Mr. S. Hutchings. The present house which is known as "Park Grove" was built by him and he lived there until his death in 1886, when the property was purchased by Mr. George Greig, who enlarged the house. In 1888, Mr. Cecil Clarke bought the estate and added to the house. The year before last [1900] Mr. Frederick Harris took a lease of the property, and has since greatly enlarged the house and improved the grounds.
