In a letter in 1774 from Robert Palk jnr. to Robert Palk esq., Robert jnr. writes, 'Captain Skottowe undertook the care of a box for you, which I expect you will say contains a monument to my folly. If it should not prove acceptable at Haldon House, I daresay it will be very much so at Yolland Hill.'

Frederick William Cannon was still at Yolland Hill when he was disqualified from driving for 12 months in 1963. The charge was driving a vehicle whilst under the influence of drink. Part of his defence was that he had been driving cars since 1920 - Mr R McGahey submitted that it was the road that wandered, not Cannon.
