  1. I hope you don’t mind me asking a question rather than commenting. Did anyone get to see the oldest part of Stoke Hall during the filming of the programme? If so was there any indication that it was a long semi detached building similar to some of the older buildings in Froggatt that face south rather than towards the river. I am curious because my Great Grandmother x 8 Elizabeth Froggott nee Barker formerly Welles lived at Stoke Hall 1618 to 1629 after her marriage to William Welles. They shared the tenancy of the Hall with William’s older brother Bernard Welles who later built Holme Hall, Bakewell and his wife Barbara, nee Marshall . Elizabeths stepsons William Welles and Thomas Froggott of Bubnell shared the tenancy some years later. Thomas F and his sons and grandsons ran the lead smelting mill that stood on the banks of the Stoke Brook at a place called Toadpool. I have copies of the wills of Bernard Welles, Bernard Welles Junior, Barbara Welles, William Welles,William Welles Junior and Richard Welles of Bubnell. I also have the Administration Bond granted to Elizabeth Froggott after the death of Thomas Froggott of Calver.
