Eggesford House

near Wembworthy, Devonshire - Earl of Portsmouth


"It might well have been in the 'Happy Valley' above which this Country House stands, among surrounding hills covered with wood, that Rasselas may be supposed to have meditated, 'the world forgetting.' It gives the perfect idea of peaceful seclusion, and the little old church below adds its quaint and becoming feature to the lovely picture.

The name of this ancient family is plainly derived from the words Wall, or Well, and Hope, a valley. John Wallop, born 1690, was created Baron Wallop, of Farley Wallop in the county of Southampton, and Viscount Lymington in 1720, and further advanced to the dignity of Earl of Portsmouth in 1743."
