Monument details

HER Number:1012/1
Type of record:Building
Name:Helsby Hall


In the 13th century Helsby was held as a demesne manor under the lordship of Dunham-on-the-Hill,by a family called Hellesby. Later it passed to Thornton and then to Frodsham. The earliest mention of the original, timber hall, was in a contract for the erection of additions in stone in the mid 15th century. The wooden part perished in a fire in the 16th century when it was leased to one of the Hatons of Helsby. The later hall probably derived its name from its proximity to the older site. It was built of brick at the end of the 18th century and was used as a farmhouse.
