Peckforton Castle

near Tarporley, Cheshire - Baron Tollemache

"In 1840, the greater portion of Peckforton township, with Beeston Castle, was purchased by Mr Tollemache from the Mostyn family. About the year 1844 Peckforton Castle was commenced, and completed in 1850, A. Salvin, Esq., being the architect.

The very ancient family of Tollemache claims Saxon descent, and the name is said to be a corruption of the word 'tollmack,' the tolling of the bell; the Tollemaches having flourished with the greatest honour, in the county of Suffolk, since the first arrival of the Saxons in England.

John Tollemache, MP for South Cheshire, was raised to the Peerage of Baron Tollemache in 1876."
