Elton Hall

Northamptonshire - Earl of Carysfort

"Elton Hall was formerly the seat of the famous and ancient family of the Sapcotes, and was afterwards conferred by grant from Queen Elizabeth to the City of London, and purchased shortly after by the Proby family.

Sir Thomas Proby removed here from Ruans, in Buckinghamshire, in 1663, and rebuilt the house, which was then in a ruinous state. Since that period Elton Hall has continued to be the principal seat of the Proby family, who have from time to time made various additions and alterations.

The house is situated in the two counties of Huntingdon and Northampton, and until recent alterations were made, a cross on the old kitchen chimney marked the boundary of the two counties.

John Joshua Proby was created Earl of Carysfort in the Peerage of Ireland, and raised to the English Peerage as Baron Carysfort of Norman Cross. He died in 1828."
