Charles Lamb, "Elia", 1775 - 1834, essayist, lived here.

Charles Lamb lived with his sister at Colebrooke Cottage from 1823 - 1827. Of this home he wrote "a cheerful dining room is studded all over and rough with old books. I feel like a great lord, having never had a house before" and "a white house with six good rooms, the New River runs close to the foot of the house".
