The entrance front of Wadenhoe House in Northamptonshire. The house was originally built in the early to mid 17th century. It is claimed that it has associations with the conspirators of the famous Gunpowder Plot of 1605, though a stone plaque on the building gives the date 1657 with the initials WIM. Possibly there was a connection with the Tresham family of Rushton Hall in Northamptonshire and Francis Tresham was indeed one of the Gunpowder plotters. Wadenhoe House was it seems built to replace an earlier fortified manor house which had stood on the hill near to the church in medieval times. The manor was owned by the Earls of Westmorland from 1617 until 1668 and it was perhaps during this period that Wadenhoe House was built. Around 1714 the estate was purchased by Sir Edward Ward, Chief Baron of the Exchequer, whose daughter married Thomas Hunt of Shropshire. Thereafter the estate passed through various branches of the Hunt family. Following the inheriting of the estate by George Ward Hunt in 1853 Wadenhoe House underwent a dramatic transformation. He created a grand country seat for himself and the house was heavily remodelled in a Tudor/Jacobean style about 1858. George Ward Hunt became a barrister and was elected MP for Northamptonshire North in 1857. In 1868 he became Chancellor of the Exchequer in Benjamin Disraeli’s brief first ministry. The story is told that on presenting his one and only Budget speech to parliament in April that year he discovered that the ministerial "Red Box" containing it had not arrived and had to be sent for. This is reputed to have started the tradition of the Chancellor holding the box aloft to show it to the crowd when leaving for the Commons on Budget Day. In 1874 Ward Hunt was appointed First Lord of the Admiralty but he was in declining health and died on a visit to the spa at Homburg in Germany in July 1877. A memorial window to him was installed in Wadenhoe parish church. From the 1890s Wadenhoe House was mostly leased and in the 1960s was converted into a training college. From the 1990s the house has been used as a venue for weddings and other celebrations and is a very pleasant hotel and restaurant.
