One of the website team has done a major piece of research around the sale of the Rossington Hall estate in 1838.
He has identified the lot numbers in the auction booklet, and what was for sale in each lot. From the Census information, he has identified who were the tenants and service staff, if any, living in the property at the time and then identified if any of those listed in the Census have a headstone in the St Michaels churchyard. Finally, he has identified whether the lot was sold again in the second sale of the land in 1938, and what it looked like then, and included a photograph of what it looks like now.
