Milton Park  Northamptonshire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Milton Park like this:

MILTON PARK, the seat of the Hon. G. W. Fitzwilliam, in Castor parish, Northampton; 2¼ miles WNW of Peterborough. It was built in the time of Elizabeth; it succeeded a mansion of the abbots of Medenhamstead; it gives the title of Viscount Milton to Earl Fitzwilliam; it has some stained glass, brought from Fotheringhay Castle; it contains portraits of Mary Queen of Scots, and her son James I., given by her to Sir W. ...

Fitzwilliam on the day of her execution; and it stands in well-wooded grounds, stocked with deer, and much frequented by pleasure-parties from the surrounding neighbourhood.
