Parlington Hall :: The Estate :: Gascoigne Houses
Lotherton Hall, Yorkshire
Lotherton Hall was purchased by Richard Oliver Gascoigne in 1825 from a local banker, Lampur Raper. It passed to Elizabeth Gascoigne after the estate was divided following the death of her father Richard Oliver Gascoigne.
Elizabeth Gascoigne never lived at Lotherton, after her death in 1893 the house was inherited by Isabella's son Frederick Richard Trench Gascoigne. He and his wife made extensive alterations to the house and gardens. In 1968 the house was bequethed to Leeds City Council by the Gascoigne Family, today it is a well liked tourist attraction, more information can be found on the Leeds City Council web site
Lotherton inherited the position of the premier Gascoigne home after Frederick Charles Trench Gascoigne died at Parlington in 1905. It was at this point that Parlington was left shuttered and generally abandoned, asside from the family employees who occupied part of the old hall.
