One Ash c1905

Photographed between 1905-1910, One Ash was built in the 1890s for William Wright of Wright's Mill. Subsequently the Faire family lived in the house and the annual fete of the Quorn Nursing Association took place in the garden. Later Charles K Deeming, the proprietor of a cinema and theatre chain and a noted beekeeper, owned the house.

The following is an excerpt from the memoirs of Thomas Dexter recalling Quorn in the 1890s:

"This was the residence of Mr William Wright and his family. He was one of the brothers, owners of the elastic web factory in the village. But as they were in "trade" they did not count as gentry, moreover as the whole family were known as Atheists they did not come into 'society' via the church"
