Thorpe Hall, Middleton Lane
Description:
2005. View of the three storey, Grade II listed Thorpe Hall on the east side of Middleton Lane. It is built in red brick with sandstone dressings and is rendered at ground floor level. The main entrance is to the right and the doorway has a moulded architrave, with scrolled consoles and pediment. The vertical, rectangular windows at ground floor level have been altered and the heads blocked. The windows beneath the carried down roof, left, were part of the servant's wing. These windows have the original glazing bars dating from 1735, when the house was built. A previous building occupied the site said to have been erected around around 1596. Thorpe Hall was the seat of the Proctor family and at one time, the Gascoignes. The Proctor Arms was originally mounted between the first and second floor windows above the main entrance and featured an otter holding a fish in its mouth.

Thorpe Hall My GGGgrandfather, Captain Ralph Hanson married Martha Procter of Thorpe Hall. Martha's sister, Catherine, married the 4th Earl of Effingham. They unfortunately had no children so that Ralph and Martha's daughter, Catherine Hanson (who married Benjamin Dealtry), was the last in the Gascoigne line (Martha's other siblings having no children). Ralph Hanson had a son, James after Martha died. I am trying to discover the whereabouts of the family crest and would be interested to know if anyone has heard of its wherebouts. Also a Mrs Dickenson donated an oil painting of Ralph Hanson to Wakefield Art Gallery and I would be interested to know how she ended up with this as it had been left in a Will to James Hanson. Any details re the family would be interesting. I have nearly finished my mother's side of the Family Tree and only need to go further back with the Hansons who I think are doubly linked to the Hatfields of Hatfield Hall. Thanks for any help.
