  THROCKMORTON COURT - See pictures at reunion photo album site. Fay Moore captured a good shot of the house below. Some of the reunion travelers did get to see this at a distance. It is no longer in Throckmorton hands, since 1972, per oral information from our tour escort. It is near Throckmorton Chapel, in Throckmorton, England. Possibly the first manor house (but rebuilt), we know little about it today, except the tenant who approached us at the gate (Alveston Manor bus group) stated "I'm not authorized by the owner to allow you entry." (One of our group had politely asked if he might go a little up the drive for a better picture of the house.) However the following site may be related:                     http://www.ozhorse.com.au/studs1/sp/sp022268.html

Through the kindness of Peter Nash who has visited there for a conference, you can see what the interior looks like currently.  Mr. Nash, who is not a Throckmorton, has generously made his images available to us.          Click here to see images.
