Stanmer House and Park, East Sussex
THE EVOLUTION OF A SMALL DOWNLAND COUNTRY HOUSE AND ITS SETTING c.1710-1805

by Sue Berry

The Pelhams of Stanmer redeveloped the site of an earlier house into a fashionable Georgian country villa and then developed a substantial park to surround it. By 1800, the ambitions of Thomas Pelham II and Ann (née Frankland) his wife had pushed the family into debt. The main part of the 1720s house, the 1770s stables and lodges of the 1770s survive, so does the outline of some of the planting by the Georgian Pelhams. This is a study of the development of the house and grounds by the Pelham family set into the broader context of their wider ambitions and their expenditure in order to meet them.
