Estate Sale



After the unexpected death of Frederic Charles Arkwright on 18 July 1923, the Arkwright family's home in Derbyshire, Willersley Castle, together with its estate of around 290 acres, was put up for sale. It eventually sold in June 1927. The image above shows the title page of the sale catalogue, advertising the contents of the house[1]. A page at the back advertised sale of the estate.

It is only because of the interest of a lady called Kate who lives on Vancouver Island that it is presented here. Kate spotted the catalogue in a local shop and most generously sent it to sent me - which is how the image comes to be on this site.
