THE SMYTHSON DYNASTY

Throughout October we shall be displaying an exhibition of local manor houses built by the Smythson family within the surrounding area.

Robert Smythson was born in Westmorland in 1535, his first position was Chief Mason at Longleat Hall. He then designed many houses during the Elizabethan period eg - Barlborough Hall , Hardwick Hall, Thorpe Salvin Hall, Worksop Manor and Lodge, Sheffield Manor , North Lees and Chatsworth Hunting Lodge.His son John designed the Old Hall Barlborough , Welbeck Abbey Extension and Stables, Shireoaks Hall , Bolsover Little Castle and was also attributed to Staveley Hall. Huntingdon the grandson designed the Riding School at Bolsover and assisted his father John with Bolsover Castle.

Smythson Designs were for in the surrounding counties and great halls such as Doddington - Lincs , Wollaton - Notts , Slingsby Castle - Yorks, Wooton Lodge - Staffs, many are left for us to admire today.

 Barlborough Hall appears to resemble other Smythson halls  eg - Gawthorpe Hall / Heath Hall / Wooton Lodge and Methley Hall.

There are many more Smythson designed buildingswhich still adorn the English landscape. From March 1568 when Robert Smythson arrived at Longleat - Wilts as Chief Mason until the death of his grandson John in 1648 at Bolsover , the family created many beautiful Buildings.
