Howsham Hall

near Malton, Yorkshire - Cholmley family


"Howsham Hall, built, according to tradition, of stone brought from the neighbouring Abbey of Kirkham, is pleasantly situated on the south bank of the River Derwent about eight miles from Malton and twelve from York.

This seat formerly belonged to the great Yorkshire family of Wentworth, and passed by marriage to the Cholmleys of Whitby Abbey.

The style of the architecture appears to belong to the latter part of the reign of James II., but the building is stated to have been erected about the time of Queen Elizabeth.

The family of Cholmley, now extinct in the male line of this branch, is descended from the ancient family of Cholmondeley, of Cheshire, and the contraction of the name is stated to have taken place about the time of Henry VII. One of its members, Sir Hugh Cholmley, bravely defended the Castle of Scarborough for more than twelve months against the Parliamentarian Army in the Civil War."
