DiCamillo Companion

Rolls Park

  • House & Family History: The Harveys were related to William Harvey, the man who discovered the circulation of blood. Major remodeling was done to the House in the 18th century, when the Music Room was added. The late 17th century staircase from Rolls is now at Hinchingbrooke.

    Comments: It is thought that The Warren from Dickens' "Barnaby Rudge" is based on Rolls Park. The Saloon is often called one of the most striking in England.
