Barforth Hall

  • Description

    Includes photos... "This farmhouse was once the manor of Barforth. There is a main building and two wings. Most of its older features would appear to date from the beginning of the 16th century, One of the ground-floor rooms was probably once a small chapel. It is possible that it was once the chapel of the Pudsey family who lived at Barforth- often known as Old Richmond. The estate came into the possession of the (Pudsey) family, by the marriage of Henry Puidsey with Elizabeth, the daughter and heiress of Sir John Laton of Barford, in the time of Edward III; and continued in it until 1659 when it was sold to Barrington Bouchier of Benningborough, near York, by the trustees, for the payment of the debts of Ambrose Pudsey, for £10,050. It is now the property of the Earl of Harewood, who purchased it of Walter Fawkes...."
