The entry below is a synopsis of our speakers talk on 19th December 2018

Today was Ladies day when wives and friends are welcomed to join us before going out for our celebration Christmas lunch. Mr. Ken Hutchinson who worked as a Town Planner for North Tyneside Council and is currently a Newcastle city guide gave a talk entitled Seaton Delaval Hall ‘The Good, The Bad & The Beauty’.

Ken started by stating that this talk was not about Seaton Delaval Hall but about 3 of the people in the Delaval family how were tagged with one of the titles Good-Bad-Beauty. The people involved were Sir Frances’s Blake Delaval, Sir John Hussey Delaval and Sara Hussey Delaval (who had liaisons with the 10th Earl of Strathmore, Prince Edward, Duke of York and was known as The Original Brazen Hussey). The lost fortunes through gambling, the recovery of the fortune by industry bottle production, shipping and the antics they got up to, other houses that they owned,

Ken conclude this excellent presentation with a question and answers section which all our members thoroughly enjoyed.
