Lamport Hall


Lamport Hall

Lamport Hall in Lamport, Northamptonshire, was the home of the Isham family from 1560 to 1976 and is a fine example of a Grade I Listed House. It is open to the public.

The 10th Baronet, Sir Charles Isham (1819–1903), is credited with beginning the tradition of garden gnomes in the United Kingdom when he introduced a number of terracotta figures from Germany in the 1840s.Bruce A. Bailey, ‘Isham, Sir Charles Edmund, tenth baronet (1819–1903)’, Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, 2004]
