Thrumpton Hall

  • Earlier Houses: The current house incorporates a substantial part of an older house that was occupied by the Roman Catholic Powdrell family (evicted from Thrumpton following the Babington Plot).

    House & Family History: Thrumpton is primarily an early 17th century house of rose-colored brick built by the Pigot family around the core of an earlier house. It was altered in the 1660s for the Pigots and in the late 18th and early 19th centuries for the Wescomb-Emerton family. In the mid-19th century Thrumpton passed into the ownership of the Byron family. Not surprisingly, considering its early history as a Catholic house, there is still a priest's hole at Thrumpton. he House is noted for its fine Charles II staircase.
