Knaith is both a village and parish in the north of Lincolnshire. The parish lies 3 miles south of Gainsborough. Willingham by Stow parish lies to the east and the Trent River to the west. Nottinghamshire is on the other side of the River Trent. The parish covers about 1,400 acres.
The Old Hall, on the banks of the Trent, in 1949 was described as "charming with black-and-white walls and clustering old chimneys". It was the birthplace of Thomas SUTTON, who was Queen Elizabeth's Master of Ordnance in the north. In his old age he founded the Charterhouse School and Hospital in London.
The Hall was also the home of Lord Willoughby of Parham, leader of the Parliamentarian troops in Lincolnshire during the Civil War.
In 1900, the Hall was the home of Major Henry Charles Hynman ALLANBY.
The Hall is a Grade 2 listed building with British Heritage.
