About Hugh Shuttleworth

Gawthorpe Hall, Yorkshire



In her excellent paper on the Gawthorpe records, Miss E. Foster stated that '...the four Shuttleworths of this period whom we must know in order to follow the story of the building of the Elizabethan Gawthorpe represent four distinct stages in growth of the family fortunes. First came Mr. Hugh Shuttleworth, of Gawthorpe, already 78 years old in 1582, but destined to live to the ripe old age of 92 before he was buried in Padiham. The chief feature of the Gawthorpe of his day was the "peel" tower.

There were many such strongholds in the hilly districts of the Northern counties in the Middle Ages, consisting of little more than a square stone tower, uncomfortable dwellings of local gentry and temporary refuges for their tenants during periods of rebellion and border raids, for Scottish inroads sometimes penetrated as far south as Lancashire. The original tower was later incorporated in the Hall but one should think of the building at first as something very much like a square Norman keep.
