History & Geography
Squerryes is our beautiful, busy home that sits within a productive 2,500 acre estate on the Kent Downs. My family is the 8th generation of Wardes to live here, with many colourful characters preceding us, all with their own story to tell. These stories, our history I suppose, are one of the things that makes Squerryes so special. Equally so is the glue, our family motto, that has bound all these chapters and all these people together over the centuries: ‘Licet Esse Beatis’: it is permitted to be joyful.
