Born in 1840; Ernest Bengough (Major) Ricketts was an interesting character, not only a military man but also a talented painter and illustrator. He leaves behind a beautifully detailed bookplate depicting Boys Hall, looking very much as it does today and we believe it is also thanks to him that we have beautifully carved heraldry above the fireplaces in the ground floor rooms. Ernest had multiple homes across England and Boys Hall was one of them.
