Earl Manvers


Earl Manvers

The title of Earl Manvers was created in the Peerage of the United Kingdom in 1806 for Charles Pierrepont, 1st Viscount Newark. The title became extinct in 1955. The subsidiary titles were "Viscount Newark" (1796) and "Baron Pierrepont" (1796), both in the Peerage of Great Britain.The ancestral seat of the Earls Manvers was the vast Thoresby Hall, near Ollerton, Nottinghamshire. The Hall itself, built in the 1860's by the 3rd Earl to the designs of Anthony Salvin, is now used as a hotel and conference venue. It remained the country residence of the last Countess Manvers well into the 1960's, but was subsequently sold by the family after the death of Lady Manvers in 1984, aged 95.

The Thoresby agricultural and forestry estate remains in private hands.

A comprehensive school named after him - Manvers Pierrepont Comprehensive, Carlton Road, Nottingham. The school site still exists but rationalisation fransformed it to a College of Further Education.
