Here is some information on the Lulham family which I have:–
Arthur Robert Lulham took over the tenancy of Calfway Farm from John Dangerfield from 29 September 1885 at an annual rental of £130 with the customary agreement to give six months notice to his landlord, Sir John Dorington, either from Lady Day or Michaelmas Day. From Witcombe, Lulham was born at France Lynch on 30 November 1860. He was the son of Robert and Elizabeth Anne Lulham; his mother then a widow died on 28 March 1883 aged 49 and was buried in Bisley churchyard. Lulham was still paying £130 in annual rental for 142 acres at Michaelmas 1889, but he was then in arrears and, with half a years rent due, owed Dorington nearly £172. By 1891, he had married Sarah and they had two children Archibald Robert aged four and Walter E. aged two. Not surprisingly, Lulham supported his landlord in nominating George Holloway as the Conservative candidate in the 1892 Stroud election; Holloway lost. In the following year, Lulham was among the 100 persons who attended the Conservative Benefit Society dinner in the upper room of The Bear at Bisley; among those present were Dorington, the Rev. Thomas Keble, Junior, the vicar of Bisley, and a former curate, the Rev. Alfred Lowder. In 1894 Dorrington paid for alterations to the house at Calfway by which date the Lulhams had left.
