The first recording of the property Uplands in Bawdrip Lane discovered to date was in 1822 [6a]
Then in a newspaper advertisement 1834 Uplands House was advertised for sale or let as “A capital newly erected Messuage”. 
It was also offered for sale or let in 1840
It was rebuilt, probably for the Revd. John Warren, in the late 1850s, had ten bedrooms and a large service wing.
By 1861 he had moved to Uplands House. [6b]
It was also offered for sale or let in 1895
From 1901 successive Vicars have lived in the Rectory House opposite the Church.
Uplands was later known as Bawdrip House 
1931 occupied by Col Wilfred Wykham Jelf CMG DSO 
Mrs Cecilia Helen Jelf stayed in the house until approx. May 1941 
The House was leased in the 1940’s by Somerset County Council for use as a smallpox hospital and for evacuees. [6c]
In October 1944 when the lease expired the Council purchased the premises for £5,300 plus costs as a Residential Nursery. 
In 1988 it was a family residential centre until sold in 2010 and is now a private house again.
