Notes

The Spencer Stanhope family resided at Cannon Hall, Barnsley for some two hundred years. John Spencer Stanhope (1787-1873) describes his period of captivity as a prisoner of war, by the French at Verdun, 1810-13. In her diary, his daughter, Anna Maria Wilhelmina Spencer Stanhope (1824-1901), who married Percival Pickering, describes her life at home and her travels abroad. The Spencer Stanhopes were linked by marriage to the Cokes of Holkham, Norfolk.
