Only three generations of Harfords owned Blaise. John Battersby Harford,
the grandson of John Scandrett Harford, died in 1875 and
his widow Mary, daughter
of Christian, Baron de Bunsen, died in 1919, whereupon the
estate was bought by the
Corporation. By 1926 the Corporation had purchased all of the family's former
property apart from Blaise Hamlet. The house is now a museum
containing exhibits of
everyday life from centuries past including domestic equipment,
Victorian toys, period
costumes and a picture gallery. Nearby Falcondale and Lampeter
Roads were
named after John Battersby Harford's estates in Cardigan.
