This was Nicolette (Nicky) Dunnington Jefferson’s bedroom, the daughter of Sir John and Lady Dunnington Jefferson. Nicolette lived in this house until 1952 when she was 11 years old; the family then moved to Thorganby Hall when her father sold it to the Sisters in 1955. Nicky lived and worked overseas for many years and now pursues her love of travel and wildlife as a travel writer. She lives in London but visits Thicket Priory regularly to share her childhood memories of growing up here.
