This room remembers the life of Hannah Fray who, in the 1841 census was at the age of 14, the youngest resident in the home of John Dean.  Some of the residents may have been lodgers, but it is assumed that Hannah was possibly a scullery maid.  She may have been one of the maids sleeping in the room above the kitchen a couple of years earlier who was thrown out of bed when a tornado blew off the roof of Silverwell House (see newspaper article below).  We have found out relatively little about Hannah, but this room and the embroidered picture below commemorates the many unknown local people who maintained Silverwell and its former gardens over the centuries.
