This is the seat of the ancient family of the Beaumonts, the heir to which is a minor and a Word in Chancery; the Hall is, in consequence, at present occupied by Mr. Rayner, their agent.

This Hall, built by Sir Richard Beaumont, about the end of Elizabeth's reign, and enlarged in 1704, stands advantageously on an elevated plain declining to the west. On the western side of the principal entrance is the family Chapel, fitted up with excellently carved oak, and in the taste formed by Gibbons, if not executed by him. The house abounds with an unusual number of portraits. It has been the seat of the Beaumont's family since the reign of Henry III. --Whitaker's Loidis and Elmete."
