HISTORICAL INFORMATION
"Monsell Lodge" was originally owned by Bolton Meredith Eyres-Monsell (First Viscount Monsell, GBE, PC) who lived between 1881 and 1969 and was a British Conservative Party politician who served as Chief Whip until 1931 and then as First Lord of the Admiralty. His parents were Lt. Col. Bolton James Alfred Monsell (a soldier and a Chief Constable in the Metropolitan Police) and Mary Beverley (daughter of Sir Edmund Ogle, Sixth Baronet). Bolton Monsell took the name Eyres upon his marriage to Caroline Mary Sybil Eyres in 1904.

"Monsell Lodge" was situated at the entrance to the Monsell Estate which formed a large area of rolling countryside between the villages of Aylestone and Blaby. The suburb of Eyres Monsell was named after him and was built on land he had owned before it was compulsorily purchased in the early 1950s.
