Dalton Old Hall


 

Dalton Hall is a country house near Burton-in-Kendal, Cumbria (formerly Westmorland) in northern England.

The hall has been in the ownership of the Hornby family since the late 18th century. Major additions were made to the large Georgian mansion in 1859–60 by Edmund Geoffrey Stanley Hornby (1839-1923), a Deputy Lieutenant for Lancashire, son and heir of Edmund Hornby (1773-1857), MP, to the designs of the Lancaster architect Edward Graham Paley. The building was demolished in 1968 and replaced in 1968–72 by a much smaller new house designed by Clough Williams-Ellis, his last commission. Pevsner described it as "a stately doll's house" which "sits inside the ghost of its predecessor". The outbuildings have been converted to serve a number of commercial purposes, including rental cottages, a self-storage facility, and the Dalton Hall Business Centre.

Hornby family

prominent members of the Hornby family include:

  • Edmund Hornby (1773-1857), MP, whose mother was a daughter of James Smith-Stanley, Lord Strange (1716–1771), (son and heir apparent of Edward Stanley, 11th Earl of Derby (1689-1776) of Knowsley Hall in Lancashire) and a sister of Edward Smith-Stanley, 12th Earl of Derby (1752-1834). He himself married his first cousin Lady Charlotte Stanley (d.1805), a daughter of the 12th Earl of Derby. Edmund Hornby's nephew was thus Edward Smith-Stanley, 14th Earl of Derby (1799-1869), thrice Prime Minister of the United Kingdom (1852, 1858-9, 1866-8).
  • Admiral Sir Phipps Hornby (1785-1867), younger brother of Edmund Hornby (1773-1857).
