IPSWICH: Maryland V.A.D. Convalescent Hospital

MARYLAND V.A.D. CONVALESCENT HOSPITAL

Burstall Road, Sproughton, Ipswich, Suffolk

Prior to the outbreak of the First World War, it is believed that ‘Maryland’ had been a children’s convalescence home.   Certainly, it was one after the war finished.

The Children’s Society (formerly the Waifs and Strays Society) opened their ‘Maryland Home’ at the property in 1948.     ‘Maryland’ had been donated to the Society by Lord Woodbridge earlier that year and he performed the opening ceremony.    The Bishop of Edmundsbury led the dedication service for the Home which was opened as a “small branch” for boys and girls.   The Home closed in 1959 and it is now a private residence known as ‘Cherwell House’.

Lord Woodbridge was Lieutenant-Colonel Arthur Charles Churchman.    He was a British tobacco manufacturer, soldier and Conservative politician.   He was the son of Henry Charles Churchman (of Paget House, Ipswich) & his wife Mary Anna Eade and was educated at independent/private Ipswich School.   Sir William Churchman, 1st Baronet, was his elder brother.

At the outbreak of the First World War, the Maryland Convalescent Home became the ‘Maryland V.A.D. Hospital’.   It was only small, in comparison to many – it only held 12-18 beds for Other Ranks i.e. it did not receive Officers.  It may have been used as a convalescent hospital linked to the East Suffolk & Ipswich General Hospital which, in turn, was an auxiliary hospital affiliated to the General Military Hospital in Colchester.

Bury Free Press, 8 August 1914 [sic]:

RED CROSS WORK.  HOSPITAL FOR THE WAR OFFICE.  AN APPEAL FOR FUNDS. 

The Suffolk Voluntary Aid Detachments, whether belonging to the Red Cross Society or the St. John Ambulance Association, have lost no time in deciding on their course of action in the present national crisis. 

Mr. J. Maitland Wilson, the County Director, explained fully the position to a meeting of vice-presidents and hon. secretaries at the County Hall, Ipswich, on Wednesday afternoon.  He pointed out that they had just had a meeting of the Executive Committee, at which they had decided to make all arrangements for carrying on the local work—the formation of hospitals, rest stations, and transport trains in their own localities.  This would be done whenever orders might be issued for them to be prepared.  They were not at the present time to form hospitals till they received the order. In addition to these local arrangements it was felt that they might be able to have some central place which would be capable of dealing with serious case, or with sick people who came back from the war whenever it was required. The Executive Committee had decided to make a direct offer to the War Office to equip a hospital for 100 beds to go and serve wherever and whenever it might be required.  When it came to a time of actual warfare they only way they could help their country was to place their organisation unreservedly in the hands of the War Office to do exactly as they wanted, as emergencies occurred.  It was with that feeling before them that the Executive Committee decided that they should offer this hospital to go abroad or serve in England.  The organisation of that hospital, which would be for one hundred beds, would be four medical men, of whom they had an offer of three.  They had the offer of one dresser, and Miss Wyrley Birch had placed at the services of the Society the matron of her Home and at least six fully-trained nurses.  They suggested that these should be supplemented by six fully-trained nurses.  In the place of probationers they also meant to take picked members of the Women’s Voluntary Aid Detachments.  A great many of the V.A.D. detachments were fully qualified to take these positions. They would also have hospital orderlies for fetching and carrying, and for the heavy work from the Suffolk V.A.D.’s.  Dr. Hassack has also kindly placed his Rontgenray appliances and a nurse at their disposal, and the latter had consented to go with the hospital.  He thought that was the nucleus they could safely go on.  They did not intend to deplete their V.A.D.’s, and so render them useless, by sending their best people away.  They intended to carry out the duties they were originally formed to undertake.  Funds would be urgently needed both for the hospital—for which they wanted £3,000 at once—and also for carrying on work in the country. … …    

Lord Stradbroke … would be willing to give Henham Hall for a hospital.  There should be a central fund to supply the requirements of a hospital.  He asked if it would not be possible for detachments to go to Shotley, and be there till they were wanted elsewhere.   Lady Stradbroke and himself would be very willing to subscribe £100 to the fund they were trying to raise, and they would do anything to help the movement forward. 

Colonel Corry made a similar announcement on behalf of Mr. A. C. Churchman, who offered Maryland House, a children’s home at Sproughton, with room for 24 beds at the disposal of the V.A.D.’s .  Everything was fitted up there, and a trained nurse would be provided as well. 

Lady de Saumarez offered to lend her dining-room at Shrublands for a similar purpose. … …”

In a 1915 War Office List of V.A.D. Hospitals (under Eastern Command), the “Convalescent Home, Marylands, Sproughton, Ipswich” had 12 occupied beds and Colonel A. C. Churchman was named.
