Cote House the history
Bristol’s Cote Charity has opened the doors to Katherine House, a state of the art residential home in Westbury-on-Trym, named after the charity’s founder Katherine Gotch Robinson. Katherine House sits on Cote grounds adjacent to Cote House, a 17th century home that was once the Robinson’s family home. Cote has a strong history in the city and before Katherine took ownership of the home it belonged to some of Bristol’s most famous families. The deeds to Cote date back to 1656. Since that time its owners have included Thomas Moore, John Eldridge and Jean Anderson. The house has gone through a series of transformations, from a farm house to a gentleman’s residence. The most famous owner was George Walters Daubeny who bought Cote in 1807.When George died in 1919 he left behind no wife or children so his possessions were put up for auction at the Cote Sale. The sale was the talk of the town and incredible pieces of furniture and other household items were sold to the highest bidders. A Chippendale table went for ?370 and an 1804 silver tray was bought for ?560. This was the highest price paid for silver at this time. Cote passed on to the Robinson family and Harold Robinson, his wife Richenda and their children Phillip, Anne, Elizabeth and Michael lived there for many years. The Robinson family is well known in Bristol. The family first put down roots in the city in 1844 when Elisha Smith Robinson came to Bristol as a paper merchant. In 1884 he established E.S. and A. Robinson with his brother Alfred and sons Arthur and Edward. The company specialised in the production of paper bags. These were used for all kinds of purposes from commercial sacks for flour and sugar down to little brown bags used in shops. The company grew fast and eventually became the second biggest company in Bristol after Imperial Tobacco, employing over 800 people. E.S. & A. Robinson’s name can still be seen on some of the buildings in Bristol today. The company had factories in Bristol city centre and East Street in Bedminster. The Robinson’s most substantial building on the corner of Redcliffe Street and Victoria Street was demolished during the War. An office block now stands in its place and the factory on East Street has been turned into flats. Edward Robinson son of Elisha Smith Robinson married Catherine Francis Gotch in 1853. They later had children, four of whom were Harold, Foster, Percy and Katherine.From 1919 Harold Robinson and his family enjoyed a happy life at Cote until Richenda died in 1950 of ill health, leaving Harold alone for four years until he passed away in 1954. The children had all left home by this time and had families of their own. The future of Cote was looking very bleak. Harold’s sister Katherine, known as Aunt K and a musically gifted, philanthropic and an eccentric woman, did not want to see the house and its beautiful grounds fall into the hands of commercial developers. She bought the house and land on her brother Harold’s death in 1954 for ?12,500. Katherine had witnessed the devastating effect that the death of Richenda had had on Harold and wanted to provide a place for other people to live to help ease their loneliness. Katherine approached The Society of Merchant Venturers for assistance. Some of her brothers and uncles were Merchants and so Katherine knew that they were helping many other charities in Bristol and were known for their pioneering and philanthropic nature. In 1968 the Cote Charity was born. Katherine turned the house into flatlets for older people who needed small, manageable and convenient accommodation. She was offering a chance to be a part of another kind of family in the beautiful setting of Cote’s grounds.Katherine’s kindness in wanting to look after her family, her family home and invite others to enjoy it reveals a lot about who she was and although there are many gaps in her history she must have been a remarkable woman. Elizabeth, Katherine’s niece wrote in April 1971: “Cote House exists now because of the generosity and imagination of Katherine Gotch Robinson. My parents would be delighted with the end product, Cote’s role today.” In the 1960s New Cote, a home to provide additional residential care to older people, was built next to Cote House. Katherine House will replace New Cote and provide state of the art accommodation and facilities for 40 older people. Katherine’s brothers Foster and Percy Gotch Robinson were presidents of The Grateful Society in 1912 and 1925 respectively. The charities established a strong link between one another, which remains to this day: the Grateful Society has provided a large donation to Katherine House. The Society of Merchant Venturers remains the Trustees of Cote Charity and is also an integral part of Cote charity. Giles Clarke, Chairman of the England and Wales Cricket Board and Senior Warden at the Society of Merchant Venturers had the honour of officially opening Katherine House. The event was e
Snethemba & Hlengiwe (Zah)
Zah is a 19 year old in grade 12 at Fundokuhle High School in Imbali, the township where she lives in this 4 roomed house with her younger brother. Their mom died a couple of years ago. No extended family pays attention to them. With the help of the community they barely got by until the elders helped her apply for a foster grant for her brother. She gets R650 ($93) a month to cover all their needs this includes school fees, stationery, uniforms, personal and household needs (electricity costs R100/month) and food. Her uncle placed tenants in one room of the house; a mother, her daughter and her 2 young children. They pay R60/month. Aside from the overcrowding, they are unsuitable tenants. Elizabeth, Zah and I visited the uncle; he was very collaborative and will give them notice. Elizabeth will arrange for an appropriate older woman, to rent a room to provide a source of income and also to watch over them and participate in household chores. Her house is in bad shape; dirty, grimy walls, derelict furniture, atrocious pots and no fridge or stove to name the main items. The project, with the help of the youngsters we are supporting, plan to clean out her house, paint, attend the auction for furniture and whatever suitable items we can find, hopefully a decent fridge and maybe a stove. Funds towards this outcome would be a huge help so that we can really improve their living conditions. Elizabeth will accompany her to the municipal offices to transfer her home into her name. There is tremendous abuse of orphan’s assets by extended family members therefore we will tie up all the loose ends necessary to secure their security. Zah is a devoted church goer attending the Seventh Day Adventist church and they are supporting her as much as possible. She loves animals and her dream is to train as an Animal Welfare Assistant. I am researching this possibility and its requirements. She is a devoted student, smart, gentle, kind and full of hopes and dreams. She had no idea how they may happen and they are, so now she believes in the power of positive thinking and prayer.
