Trafalgar House (Standlinch House) (Standlynch House)

  • House & Family History: The Trafalgar Estate was given by the British government to the family of Lord Nelson as a reward for his naval victories over Napoleonic France. The Nelson family sold the estate in 1947, after their perpetual Treasury pension was canceled by the government. The House went through 10 owners, until its purchase in the 1990s by Michael Wade, who restored the House to its former glory. The central block was recently discovered to have been designed by John James. The Greek Doric entrance portico, designed by Nicholas Revett, is the first of its kind in England. Mr. Wade listed Trafalgar for sale for £12 million in 2016.
