This catalogue contains only a selection of the early villas of Glebe and Forest Lodge. Because of time and budget constraints, others - such as Alma Cottage, Calmar, Oak Lodge, Enfield House, Elmville, Hawthorn, Barncastle’s Cottage, Udale Cottage, Enfield House, Hamilton, Glenmore, Willow Lodge and Kayuga - have not been included. With further research, it is planned to post the history of these, and others, onto the Glebe Society website.
