The Stanleys of Alderley
February 16 All day
The Stanleys were a many-branched family and included the Earls of Derby as well as Knutsford’s own Lady Jane Stanley. The Alderley family had their share of oddities and Clare Pye from Tabley House will include in her talk gamblers, womenisers and a Lord who converted to Islam.
Alderley Park was the seat of this branch of the family. Astra Zeneca took over the site in the 1950s and remained there until 2013.
