    Hello could somebody confirm if The Old Chaple House was called The Three Cedars in the 1890s, I believe then it was owned by William Cayley Cleveland who was in part ownership of East Bergholt Meat Company, this Partnership was dissolved on the 12th May 1893 and the then company became wholly owned by William Kerridge who was the other part owner.
    I believe Helen Cleveland was born in this House in 1896, the family moved to Colchester in 1890.
