Hopton Hall contents auction 1989

In 1989 the contents of Hopton Hall were auctioned by Sotheby's. This is a transcription of the catalogue of that Auction. An outline of the history of Hopton Hall and the Gell family, from earliest times to the circumstances leading to the sale of Hopton Hall and the auction of the contents, is given in the catalogue. It is hoped that the description of items for auction will give the reader a glimpse into the history and way of life of perhaps the oldest and wealthiest family who have lived in the Wirksworth Area studied by this website.
