Description Hajba refers to John Wrixon of Blossomfort in 1703. Wilson, writing in 1786, refers to Blossom-fort as the seat of Mr. Wrixon. The present house, occupied by William Bullen in 1814 and by J. Smith in 1837 was built by the Wrixons probably in the early 19th century. In the mid 19th century Blossomfort was the residence of Thomas Haynes who held the property from Benjamin Wrixon. It was valued at £14. Sold by the Wrixons to the Longfields of Longueville, Blossomfort became the residence of their agent, Richard Smith. This house was reconstructed following a fire in the early 1900s and is still extant.
