houses

The house of the Hull Liberal MP, Lord Nunburnholme (born Charles H. Wilson). Warter Priory had upwards of 60 staff at its peak, with 100 rooms to clean and maintain. It also had extensive gardens, including an Italian-style garden with classical portrait busts set on columns. Lord Nunburnholme died in 1907, but his widow (Florence Wellesley, a niece of the Duke of Wellington) lived there until 1929, when she sold the estate. She died in 1932. The contents of the house were sold in 1968 and the house itself was demolished in 1972.
