This is the earliest map we could find with Greenhill/ Blarmore. It was surveyed in 1875 by Lieutenant F H Fawkes.

We believe that Greenhill is the middle of the three buildings shown in the enlarged section from Lieut Fawkes' map.

The first reference we can find of the house being called Greenhill is in a marriage certificate dated 1923.
