Unique ID:3641
Description:Photograph. Peartree House was built in the reign of Elizabeth I, probably between 1590-1600. Its builder and owner was Francis Mylles, tenant of Bitterne Manor House. Mylles used stones from Clausentum to build the house. In the 19th century General Shrapnel, inventor of the Shrapnel Shell, lived at the house, and died there in 1842.. In the 1930s the estate was sold for redevelopment. The council bought the house in 1949 and converted it into a home for the elderly.
