Notes:
Westbrook was the home of Arts and Crafts movement architect and china painting artist Hugh Thackeray Turner and his wife Mary Elizabeth Powell Turner. It was designed and built by Thackeray Turner in 1899-1900, who worked with Gertrude Jekyll on the design of its gardens (Turner and Jekyll also collaborated on the design of the Phillips Memorial in Godalming). A sunken garden with a lily tank at its center was a key feature of the site. The original plan also featured woodland paths to a boathouse and footbridge on the River Wey. Thomas W. Sears visited Westbrook on August 2, 1906, where he had tea with Mrs. Turner and took several photographs of the site
Persons associated with the garden include: Hugh Thackeray Turner and Mary Elizabeth Powell Turner (former owners, 1899-1937) and Gertrude Jekyll (garden designer, ca. 1900)
