Burton Agnes Hall

near Burlington, Yorkshire - Baronet Boynton


"This very fine and interesting specimen of an English gentleman's country seat is situated in the East Riding, on a gentle eminence at the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds, commanding an extensive view over the Holderness and the level lands at the foot of the hills just mentioned. It is a good example of the style of architecture which was prevalent in the reigns of Queen Elizabeth and King James the First. It is said to have been built adter a design by Inago jones.

The family of Boynton is stated to derivce from Bartholomew de Boynton, (Boynton is an adjoining parish at the other side of the Wolds,) living in 1067, who was an ancestor of Matthew Boynton, who married Anne, daughter of Sir John Bulmer, of Wilton, and was succeeded by his son, Sir Thomas Boynton, MP for Boroughbridge and High Sheriff of Yorkshire in the reign of Queen Elizabeth.

His son, Sir Francis Boynton, was also High Sheriff in 1596. He married Dorothy, daughter of Christopher Place, and their son was Sir Matthew Boynton, of Barmston and Boynton, who was created a Baronet in 1618. He married the daughter of Sir Henry Griffith, and thus bought Burton Agnes into the Boynton family."
