Notes:
A fortified medieval manor house dating from the 12th to the early 17th centuries, Haddon Hall was owned by the Vernon family for 400 years, from which it passed to the Manners family by marriage in 1567. The property was virtually uninhabited between 1701 and 1912, at which time the 9th Duke of Rutland, while still the Marquess of Granby, returned and began an extensive restoration of the house and gardens. Situated along the River Wye amidst rolling countryside in the Peak District National Park, Haddon Hall retains a romantic aura. At the time the site was photographed by Thomas W. Sears restoration efforts had not yet begun and his images are limited to distant views of the "castle" and its adjacent gardener's cottage and Elizabethan stables.
Persons associated with the property include the Vernon family (former owners, ca. 1190-1567); the Manners family (owners, 1567 to date); and John Henry Montagu Manners, Duke of Rutland (former owner, 1912-1940).
Summary:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles and guide entries, a booklet about the site, and additional information about the house and garden.
