About Dorothy Manners (Vernon)

Dorothy Vernon (c. 1545 – June 24, 1584), the younger daughter of Sir George Vernon, was the heiress of Haddon Hall, an English country house in Derbyshire with its origins in the 12th century.[1] She married John Manners in about 1563.[2][3] The couple's descendants, the Dukes of Rutland, continue to own Haddon Hall. A legend grew up in the 19th century that Vernon and Manners eloped, and a number of novels, dramatisations and other works of fiction have been based on the legend.
