Around 1840 the Right Honourable John Wilson Croker was persuaded by Alexander Baring, Lord Ashburton to build a sea-side retreat next to his own at Stokes Bay in Alverstoke, Hampshire. [1] By 1851 the house was the residence of Lieutenant General Henry Bunbury and his wife. [2]

Croker died in 1857 [3] and for a year, 1857/8 the house was the home of Prince Alfred second son of Queen Victoria while he studied at Burney's Academy. With him was his governor, Lieutenant J.C. Cowell of the Royal Engineers and the Reverend W. R. Jolly.[1]
