West Ord (house)

The grand house at West Ord was built c.1700-1710. It is Grade II* listed on the National Heritage List for England.

The house belonged to the Orde Family but its quality may be related to the fact that Margaret Orde was the mistress of Sir William Blackett of Wallington, and that her illegitimate daughter, also called Margaret, became Sir William's heir. The house was probably built before Margaret Orde senior's death in 1712. The interior decoration may date from after the house's full reversal to the Wallington estate in 1726. (Historic England)
