Event description
Linley Hall, family home of Samuel More who married his cousin, Katharine, at the instruction of his father to consolidate two estates.

About this Event

The forced marriage of cousins, Samuel of Linley and Katharine of Larden, was the plot of the two fathers to protect their estates. It ignored the pre-contract Katharine had with one of her father's tenant farmers, Jacob Blakeway. Later, Jacob and Katharine were found guilty of adultery, the evidence being the likeness of Katharine's four children to Jacob! during this walk, Keith Pybus will recount the story and walkers will be able to admire Linley Beeches, planted by Robert More in 1730. Linley Hall is a Palladian replacement of the timber-framed hall of Samuel's day. Samuel also had an undistinguished career in the Civil War.
