Notes NOTES: This lithograph was prepared for Edward Twycross, Mansions of England and Wales, the county palatine of Lancaster, vols. 1-3. The house was probably finished around 1381, with alterations to the house and grounds around 1708 by Alexander Edward. In 1853, only a few years after this print was published, the Duke of Hamilton sold the house and by 1856 the house was largely rebuilt.
