Potternewton Hall, Potternewton Lane (Potternewton) (1 comment)
Black & White imageUndated. Image shows a five bayed early Georgian Mansion built in the early 1700s by the Barker family. This was originally the site of Mauleverer's old seat. The Hall was demolished in 1935 to make way for housing development. Riviera Gardens, flat roofed white painted housing from the inter-war years, was built on the site of the hall and gardens. Immediately to the west of Potternewton Hall there was another substantial house called Newton Lodge which was demolished to make way for Newton Lodge Drive. In October 1935 G.F. Greenwood a York Antique Dealers offered for sale an 'old pannelled room from the Georgian Mansion Potternewton Hall c.1720'. The room was bought and reassembled at Sutton Park as a morning room.

Potternewton Hall, Potternewton Lane (Potternewton) (3 comments)
Black & White imageUndated. View of Potternewton Hall in Potternewton Lane. By the early 1700's, the Barker family had acquired a substantial acreage from the Earl of Mexborough and built Potternewton Hall (c1720's). By 1860, the Barker family had sub-divided their estate with Potternewton Hall and 13 acres being sold to Francis Lupton, a "gentleman" whose family had lived at Potternewton Hall since the 1840's. Before long, the Lupton family owned the adjoining estates, including Newton Hall, which they sold in the 1920's for subdivision. By 1935, they had also sold Potternewton Hall, again subdividing. The Lupton family sold their family seat, Beechwood, in nearby Roundhay in 1998 - much of the farm land having been sold by the 1950's to create the Leeds township of Seacroft. In October 1935 G.F. Greenwood, a York Antique Dealer, offered for sale an "old panelled room from the Georgian mansion, Potternewton Hall c.1720". The room was bought and reassembled at Sutton Park, near York, as a morning room.
