what's inside a mansion house?


Hubby went to watch the game between Aston and Wigan without me. Alahai I so wanna go, tapi tak sesuailah bawa Aariz. When he came back home, I asked him about it and he replied alaa nothing much..biasa2 saja (nak ambil hati la tu), but still I have a little bit excitement whenever it means for football, or epl to be exact. So, he promised to bring me. 


tadaa..tu yang dibelakang

Just about 200 yards from the stadium was Aston Hall, the Jacobean-style mansion house. The day was planned for the mansion house sebenarnya, yang stadium tu singah2 je. 

I present you the Holtes mansion house..


 pergi  mana-mana mesti pegi tengok bunga (park) dulu



gate to the park

Ok frankly telling, I didn't give much attention to the notes. Biasakan melawat muzium ada nota-nota yang kena tampal tu. Until at home, I did some study about it and it was quite interesting. Long story short, the mansion was originally owned by Sir Thomas Holte, before sold to James Watt jr (Watt known for the steam engine, yes! ) and later was purchased by a private company for use as private park and museum. Sir Thomas was born from a wealthy, land-owning family. But he himself  did much to further his family fortune and the result was Aston Hall to reflect his wealth and status. Started built in 1618 and moved into in 1630, you do the math and now let's see what's inside a mansion house.




from wiki..I can't help not to copy paste the story. Classic but tragic.


Sir Thomas Holte married as his first wife Grace, daughter and co-heiress of William Bradbourne of Hough, Derbyshire, with whom he had fifteen children. Sir Thomas made use of his connections to secure his second son, Edward, a position in King Charles I's household. Whilst in London, Edward met and married Elizabeth King, daughter of John King, the incumbent Bishop of London. Unfortunately, Sir Thomas did not give his permission for the marriage, and never forgave his son for proceeding with the wedding regardless. Edward was entirely cut out from his inheritance, and despite pleas from the King himself, Sir Thomas never allowed reconciliation. After the death of the eldest son George in 1641, Edward was Sir Thomas' only remaining son. Sir Thomas re-married in short order Anne, the youngest daughter of Sir Edward Littleton of Pillaton Hall, and made great efforts to raise another son, so that Edward could be permanently cut out of the estate. Edward died on military service in 1643, having never returned to the family fold despite his several attempts. It was rumoured Sir Thomas locked up a daughter because she refused to marry her father's choice of husband. The story goes that she starved to death.

Sir Thomas' second wife was able to give him another son, but the boy did not survive past childhood, in common with nine of the children from Sir Thomas' first marriage. During his last days he was finally persuaded to leave Aston Hall and all his estates to Edwards's son Robert, his grandson, who would inherit the baronetcy. Sir Thomas was buried in Aston Church, survived only by his wife and daughter Grace.


What really inside a mansion house. hmmmm
I don't need such mansion, I just love my life!
