Click for details about Henry Burra

In 1883 Mr. Henry Burra purchased the estate from the Duff family. The family only had the estate for 18 years. Henry Burra died in 1886, and it passed to his trustees. In 1891 his trustees let the shooting to Mr. Percy Hargreaves. From them it was purchased by Henry Curtis Burra, his son, who sold it in 1901 to James William Barclay.

In 1886 Mr Burra applied for plans for restoration of the castle prepared by his son-in-law Sir Reginald Bloomfield. Unfortunately the restoration was not carried out
