In the 17th and 18th century much of the northern part of the estate was owned by the Duke of Northumberland while the southern third was part of Wallington Estate. It was Sir Walter Blackett in 1730 who built the first lake at Sweethope to power the cornmill. The estate in its present format was assembled by the Stobart family some time about 1830...."
