  • House & Family History: Churchdale Hall was purchased by the dukes of Devonshire from the earls of Westmoreland in the early part of the 19th century. The House is almost in the cottage orné style and was extended in 1836 and again in 1840. The 10th Duke of Devonshire lived here from the 1920s until his death in 1950. In 1955 the small Estate and House were sold to David Russell.
