PROVENDER HOUSE, FAVERSHAM, THE TEAPOT ISLAND MUSEUM & BATEMANS, BURWISH (NT)
Tuesday 21 May 2019

TUESDAY 21ST MAY:  PROVENDER HOUSE, FAVERSHAM  -  
11.00 Private Tour of Provender House to include Tea/Coffee & Cake:

Provender dates back to the 13th century and was named after its first owner, Sir John de Provender. Sir John had become rich in the service of King Henry III, from whom he received a pension of one penny a day – a princely sum for the times.

Provender is now the home of Princess Olga Romanoff, the daughter of Prince Andrew Romanoff, the eldest nephew of the Tsar Nicholas II of Russia.  The Knatchbull-Huguessons rented the house to Princess Olga's maternal great-grandmother in 1890 and sold it as auction in 1912 to her Finnish grandmother Sylvia McDougall, born Borgström in Helsinki.  During the Second World War Provender was requisitioned and then returned after the war to Sylvia's daughter Nadine who in 1942 had married Prince Andrew Romanoff.
