Anne Pomeroy dies

Anne Pomeroy died peacefully in the evening of Wednesday 22 October, surrounded by her family.

Anne PomeroyAnne lived for many years at Rockfield House and later Rockfield Stables in Horn Street. By coincidence, she was one of three graduates from Girton College, Cambridge, to land in Nunney – with Lady Helen Pickthorn of Manor House Farm and the late Felicity Beauchamp of Springfield House.

Mrs Pomeroy was born Winifred Anne Colegate, the second daughter of Sir Arthur Colegate, Conservative MP for The Wrekin in Shropshire and Burton in East Staffordshire.

Her sister, the author and literary agent Isabel Colegate, is best known for her 1980 novel The Shooting Party which was filmed with Sir John Gielgud.

Anne PomeroyAnne married Major the Hon. Robert Pomeroy, son of the Viscount and Viscountess Harberton, in April 1953. She featured on the cover of Country Life at the time. The couple had two sons, Henry and Richard.

She will be remembered as a kind and generous lady, always with a broad smile and accompanied by her dog.

Our thoughts are with Henry and Caroline, Hugh, Patrick and the rest of her family.

The funeral service will be held at 2.30pm on Thursday 30 October at Nunney Church. All are welcome to the service and at Rockfield House, Horn Street, Nunney, for tea afterwards.
