Somerleyton Hall, Suffolk. The connection with the Salt family is that it was the home of Catherine Salt’s (nee Crossley, wife of Titus Salt Junior, Milner Field ) uncle Francis (Frank) Crossley. The house had been built for the Victorian contractor Morton Peto. After his bankruptcy it was bought by Francis Crossley, possibly on account of his knighthood. It was a three thousand acre estate and included the village of Somerleyton. Francis Crossley’s son, Savile Brinton Crossley, was the Paymaster General between 1902 and 1905 and created 1st Baron Somerleyton. The family still own the house and estate. Moral of the story would be, invest in landed estates, not model housing.One of a series of glass negative images showing activities and members of the Salt Family. Some duplicates, some small file size, larger scan needed.
