Penmorfa was a holiday home, built in 1862 by Alice Liddell's father, Dean Henry Liddell. The house was extended over the years and became the Gogarth Abbey Hotel. The bulding was demolished in 2008 and replaced with a block of luxury flats.

Prince Leopold

   Copyright Details:    

  Prince Leopold, Duke of Albany - Wikipedia  

The youngest son of Queen Victorian, Prince Leopold met and fell in love with Alice Liddle while studying in Christ Church.

The Queen insisted that the Prince must not marry outside of a royal family, so he was unable to marry Alice.

Alice later married Reginald Hargreaves, a cricketer who also studied in Christ Church.

On the day of the marriage she wore a diamond and ruby brooch that had been a gift from Leopold.

Prince Leopold married Princess Helene Friederike, she gave birth to a daughter in 1883 and the child was named Alice.

The second son of Alice was christened Leopold and the Prince became the godfather of the young boy.
