Temple Newsam House, Interior, Oak Cupboard (Temple Newsam)

It is thought that much of the oak furniture was made to commemorate the wedding of Thomas Wentworth, the owner of Bretton Hall, in 1531. The two coats of arms on the mid-section of the cupboard are the Dronsfield's (former owners) and Wentworth's. In the central panel are the initials of Thomas Wentworth and also the letter K which signifies that he was a knight marshall under King Henry VIII.
