Hampton Court

near Leominster, Herefordshire - Arkwright family

"The first structure was erected in the reign of Henry the Fourth, by whom the first stone is recorded to have been laid, by Sir Rowland Lenthall, and the house is said to have been furnished with spoils from the field of Agincourt.

The house then became the property of the Coningsby family, before being inherited by Charlotte Hanbury Williams, wife of the Earl of Essex, who then sold it to Richard Arkwright in 1887.

The present magnificent seat, built near the site of one of the most celebrated old mansions in the kingdom, stands in an extensive park and grounds, and with beautiful views in every direction, the two rivers Lugg and Arrow meandering through the estate until they meet together near the house.

The family of Arkwright derives from Richard Arkwright, born at Preston in Lancashire, the celebrated inventor of improvements in the machinery used in cotton manufacture, for which he received the deserved honour of knighthood.
