    Sefton House, 50 Ullet Road, Sefton Park, Liverpool
    "A number of websites state that Sefton House was demolished or that it once stood in Greenbank Park next to the lake. The 1881 census shows only one Sefton House and it is in Sefton Park, as 1881 was only 5 years after the birth of George Rodocanachi I believe that this house on Ullet Road is his former home. It remains standing today in Sefton Park." (Liverpool and Merseyside Remembered).
