Southwell, Old Residence house

Artist: Grimm, Samuel Hieronymus

Date: 1773

Shelfmark: Additional MS 15544

Item number: f.172

Genre: Manuscript

A drawing in ink of the old Residence House, where prebendiary clergy resided "copied from a drawing of Mr Bristoe". The main part of the house was built in 1689-1695, but further additions were made until the early 19th century. The city of Southwell (the Minster was granted cathedral status in 1844) is known not only as a centre of ecclesiastical importance - the poet Lord Byron passed his university holidays here at Burgage Manor House; King Charles spent his final few days of freedom at The King's Head Inn (later to be renamed The Saracen's Head) and the Bramley apple was first grown in a garden in Easthorpe, a neighbourhood of Southwell.
