Thorpe Hall

Postby Joe Pa » Sat Mar 12, 2011 2:44 am

I know this may be a stretch in this forum, but can anyone tell me if Thorpe Hall Manor at Rudston is still standing today. I have a geneological link to the estate and am gathering information. I have found good photos of the other Thorpe Halls, but not this one which I am searching out. I mean the Thorpe Hall which now has a caravan on part of the grounds. Please help if you can with photos and information. Thanks!

Thanks Plook. Funny how there seems to be no pictures of this Thorpe Hall. I would ask that if anyone has any, even old ones, please email me a copy. I have just become owner of some antique family documents, one of which explains a visit to Thorpe Hall containing 12 chimneys, 315 windows, etc. I would just like a good photo of the mansion to compare with the description. email loco219@verizon.net

That is indeed the next step. If the address is a simple look up, could someone please post it here for me? Thanks.

A sincere thanks to all who helped me here. I made contact with Sir Ian, and he established for me I am searching for a different Thorpe. The good news is, I think I found it. It is actually Aus Thorpe Hall, just outside Leeds. This Manor has my ancestors name, John Moore, on the stone at the door dated 1694. My question now is, may I discuss the Leeds area here, or is it too far away? If I may not, is there a chat forum closer to Leeds someone can link me to? Thanks.

Please feel free to carry on with your chat on here, it may help others with similar queries!

PS For the first time in 70 years you now have an ideal opportunity to actually acquire the hall that your ancestors built!!!
