Footnotes

  • Wiganthorpe hall dates back to the 12th century, although nothing of the original structure remains. A number of families have resided in the house, including the Methams during the reign of Elizabeth I. In 1595 Francis Metham undertook extensive rebuilding of the house.

    By the mid 18th century the Garforth family inhabited the house. In 1780 William Garforth commissioned John Carr (1723-1807), the architect responsible for much of the fine Georgian buildings in York, to build a new Hall onto the Jacobean one. The current lot shows the Hall after this refurbishment.
