The Family - Gisborough Hall    

Somewhere you feel welcome

The Chaloner family have had connections with Guisborough since the time of Henry VIII and the dissolution of the monasteries. Sir Thomas Chaloner bought the Guisborough Monastic Estate from the Crown in about 1570 for the princely sum of £854/13/4d.

The family lived for many years in a large house in Guisborough on the site of the present Parish church hall, and etchings can be found in our reception area. In 1856, Admiral Thomas Chaloner (1815-1884) built “Longhull” on the site of an old farmhouse. The oldest parts of today’s Hall are the results of his labours. Above the front door you will see the “Admiral’s Room”, a room built to represent his naval past complete with a forecastle and porthole.

After the Admiral’s death, the estate passed to Richard Godolphin Walmesley who was elevated to the House of Lords and took the title Lord Gisborough. It was spelt GIS as having researched the name, he believed this to be the correct spelling and historically accurate.

Today, Lord Gisborough and the family pay a keen interest in the running of the hotel and are actively involved in ensuring it remains a thriving and popular venue.
