Somerleyton

near Lowestoft, Suffolk - Baronet Crossley


"The estate of Somerleyton was once held by Sir Thomas Wentworth, who held it until the year 1669, when it was purchased by Sir Thomas Alleyne, who was MP for Dunwich, and created a Baronet in 1672. He left one son, who, dying a bachelor, devised Somerleyton to Richard Anguish, who had married his sister, on condition that he took the arms and name of Alleyne.

With his descendants it remained, until it was passed into the possession of Lord Sydney Godolphin Osborne, from whom it was purchased by Sir Morton Peto, who erected the present magnificent edifice, the designs being furnished by Mr John Thomas, an architect well known for his work in the New Houses of Parliament. The seat was purchased within recent years by the late Sir Francis Crossley."
