NOTES: Originally a Jacobean manor, Claydon House was rebuilt to designs by Sir Thomas Robinson for Ralph, 2nd Lord Verney, from 1768. The new state rooms included a central rotunda and a large ballroom occupying one wing, which remained incomplete at the time of Robinson's death in 1777. Luke Lightfoot was responsible for the wood-carving and parquetry staircase.
