The chicken rustler and Conduit Lodge

alfred-jackman-great-great-grandfatherExcellent piece of investigation here, showing how a search for an ancestor lead to a discovery of chicken theft in the family! But does “Conduit Lodge, Blackheath Park” still exist?

There are some beautiful (copyrighted) photos from a scrapbook here and here, showing a Conduit Lodge, but with no more info.

This archive.org source suggests that it was in Eltham, not Blackheath, but perhaps Conduit House in Eltham is a different property? It doesn’t look the same as the flickr images in this photo.

If anyone can shed any light, please do! I’m off to rustle some chickens from CostCutter.
