The house, post fire, from a 1904 postcard
Collections: The 1st Earl of Lindsey, Robert Bertie, took possession of what is now known as the Cheapside Hoard in the 1630s in his role as treasurer of the East India Company (Kris Lane has speculated that the hoard may have been brought back to England from the East Indies in 1631, having been assembled by a Dutch jeweler named Gerald Polman). The Cheapside Hoard is today in the collection of the Museum of London. The 1st Earl didn't live to see the construction of Uffington; he died during the Civil War at the Battle of Edgehill in 1642.
Comments: Uffington contained some of the finest interiors in Lincolnshire, including ceilings decorated by Antonio Verrio.
