NOTES: Originally a Jacobean manor, Claydon House was rebuilt to designs by Sir Thomas Robinson for Ralph, 2nd Lord Verney, from 1768. Luke Lightfoot was responsible for the wood-carving of the Rocco interiors and parquetry staircase. Florence Nightgale was a relation of the Verneys and a regular visitor to the house.
