Edward Hulse of Breamore estate near Fordingbridge bought the Banister Court estate in 1856. His Fordingbridge home had been damaged by fire in that year and he may have wanted a temporary residence while it was being repaired. If he lived at Banister Court at all it was only briefly; the house seems to have been empty for most of the 1860s. He also bought Archers Lodge in 1864. Hulse Road was named after him, as were Westrow Road and Westrow Gardens, which commemorated a family name. Hulse Road was, until 1897, called Winchester Road.

The Banister's estate was sometimes called the Hulse estate in the late 19th century.
