Also just come across this
Barrow and Geraldine Cadbury had strong links with Blackwell, living in Rosemary Cottage and Cropwood, before finally donating both of them and surrounding land to Birmingham City Council for educational purposes.

"Mother's maiden name Southall": perhaps daughter of Henry Southall (1836 - 1916) of Ross on Wye, Quaker, botanist, bryologist, meteorologist and public benefactor?

I dont know if this is any use to anyone - but i believe this relates to the person your talking about ..

My Mum has the memoirs of Alfred Southall from Edgbaston who was married to Anna strangman Grubb. The private book is in very good condition and has the Original calling card of Barrow Cadbury obviously left inside (Cadbury chocolate people ) . Barrow Cadbury was married to Geraldine Southall . It has photographs that are tissue covered, a family tree at the back and day to day life including memoirs of visits of Barrow Cadbury .The book is a facinating account of his daily life - . The book was a private printing for family and tells of tales of a Charles Dickens private readings outing . Alfred Southall was the cousin of the famous quaker artist Joseph Southall who is mentioned in the book. Rowntrees are mentioned , Barrow Cadbury , Elisabeth Fry
The book has many chapters of every part of his life from family holidays to buisness life and noteable charactors in his life .
My mum is selling the private printed book - if this is of any interest to anyone please contact me maddy.hill@hotmail.co.uk

Hi, I'm a descendant of the Southall family, and recognise some of these places etc; she might not be a descendant of Henry Southall, but he and the rest of the Ross-on-Wye Southalls were closely connected to the Southalls of Edgbaston. Edgbaston Southalls included Joseph Southall, the famous artist, and were, as far as I understand, very closely connected to the Cadburys; both were old Quaker families.

"The history of the Grubb family is lengthy and is but briefly considered here in relation to Susanna Grubb and her flower paintings (Grubb 1972). The brother of Susanna, John Grubb (1818-1870), married Rebecca Strangman (d. 1907) of Waterford. Their son, Ernest Grubb (1843-1927), contributed to Praeger’s Irish Topographical Botany (1901); their daughter, Anna, married Alfred Southall (1838-1931), a manufacturing chemist of Birmingham. There were nine children of this union. The eldest daughter Geraldine Southall (1865-1941) married Barrow Cadbury (1862-1958), a cocoa and chocolate manufacturer of Birmingham. The Cadbury’s had three children Dorothy, Paul and Geraldine. The eldest, Dorothy Adlington Cadbury, published with J.G. Hawkes and R.C. Readett, a computer mapped flora of the county of Warwickshire (Cadbury et al., 1971), she was a Director of the firm Cadbury Bros., and was also a painter of flowers (Copson 1988)."

I've just signed up to the site (and now fascinated by it!) to add a bit more information here as I found this site while searching for Rosemary Cottage.

Dorothy and the rest of the Cadbury family spent most of their time in Edgbaston but Rosemary Cottage and later Cropwood House were also places she would have lived in her younger days. Rosemary Cottage was the weekend residence of the Cadbury family. I believe the son had problems with his chest so the family built Cropwood House just down the road, as a permanent countryside residence. They donated Cropwood and Rosemary Cottage in the 1920s, as chrisu said, they became an open-air school for the city's children.

Cropwood is now part of a special secondary school for boys with social emotional and mental health needs. Rosemary Cottage is a private residence again, but I have some older maps which refer to it as 'Blackwell Environmental Studies Centre' which I'm sure Dorothy would have approved of Very Happy
