Our History

Discover Mulgrave Estate

The Mulgrave Estate came into the Phipps family in the early part of the 18th Century, from lands belonging to John Sheffield, Duke of Buckingham.

The first house there was constructed by his Duchess, Lady Katherine Darnley, the illegitimate daughter of James II.

She left the Estate to her daughter by her first husband, The Earl of Anglesey: Catherine Annesley, who married William Phipps. We have no pictures of this building, except for some tiny images on early 18th Century maps.

Forestry & Timber

Trees are a vital part of the Estate’s character, with the forestry team responsible for the care of around 2,500 acres of woodland.

Accounting for 16% of the Estate’s land area, this expanse of woodland is a direct result of the long-term stewardship and careful management of the Normanby family’s ownership.
