A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY
The Tomkins were among the leading families of Abingdon-on-Thames whose wealth came from the malt trade and banking in the mid-18th century. The family built impressive houses in Abingdon, notably Twickenham House (built in 1756 for Joseph Tomkins) in East St Helen St. It is renowned for its brickwork and the building has retained many original internal features, notably the main staircase, doors, doorcases and fire surrounds. Other houses included The Clock House, Ock St, and Stratton House, Bath St (built around the 1720's for Benjamin Tomkins).
