History Of Bishton Hall

Bishton Hall was first mentioned in the Domesday Book and the current property dates back to circa 1750, with its east wing added in the 19th century. Its Temple Garden was built in the 1840s.

The house boasts three principal front rooms, sash windows with moulded architraves, a panelled entrance hall and 18th century chimney pieces. Most of the original joinery is intact, including panelled doors, and the house also has a set of servants’ bells.

Bishton is one of the oldest settlements in Staffordshire, mentioned in the Doomsday Book as belonging to King Harold ll of Hastings fame.

Following the battle, it passed into the ownership of the Earl of Mercia, then on to the Bishops of Lichfield. During the 16th and 17th centuries it belonged to the Snede family, being the dower house for Keele. It is believed some 22 members of that family were born here.

In the middle of the 18th century it was bought by a lawyer, John Sparrow, who became the first chairman of the Stafford quarter sessions, famously preventing a massacre of Stafford residents at Radford Bank. He was also High Sheriff of the county, a position later held by Cecil Stafford Northcote whilst at Bishton.

Upon John Sparrow’s death, ownership passed to his eldest daughter, Charlotte. She never married but is still remembered today by the children of Colwich school which she founded. She added the east and west wings of the house in about 1820.

The Stafford Northcote's moved here in 1946 and made it into St Bede’s School. Many pupils have gone on to lead distinguished careers taking with them a unique experience of family-orientated school life and fun.

There have been five babies born at Bishton Hall. The family, a branch of the Earls of Iddlesley of Devon, have always been keen collectors of fine art and furniture.
