Luxmoore's Garden


Luxmoore's Garden

My half-brother, Fuff, has some interesting ancestors including the Eton housemaster HE Luxmoore who created a lovely garden on Tangier island in the Thames just beside the Chapel. It's accessible only to masters and senior boys and retains its mystery and seclusion

  1. Marvellous picture of Fuff and his granite likeness! The nose is incredible (in the nicest way of course).

  2. I too am a relative of HE Luxmoore and would very much like to hear from you. My great grandfather was CTPLuxmoore elder brother of HEL. My grandmother was Caroline Noble Luxmoore. I can be contacted on eugeniemcc@gmail.

    i am a luxmoore and am interested in finding out more about the roots of the name. I live very near to Devon UK where the name derives from and know a little history. There is a Luxmoore book that mu Uncle has.
    Do you know anything more?
    thanks
