Historically Langton Hall has strong ties to Gentleman Jack, it was the former home of a wealthy landowner, Lieutenant-Colonel Thomas Norcliffe and his wife, Ann.
The family had four daughters, Isabella, Charlotte, Mary and Emily (We give a nod to Isabella and Charlotte in the names of our luxury cottages) and two sons, Norcliffe and Thomas.
Isabella formed a close friendship with Anne Lister and by 1810 Anne Lister had very close ties to the family- even staying at Langton Halls' South Wing for a large period of time.
She began to cultivate a new friendship with Isabella Norcliffe, fascinated as she was by the wealthy, sophisticated lifestyle of the family who resided at Langton Hall.
Anne quickly recognised a kindred spirit in Isabella Norcliffe who was Six years older and very worldly-wise,
Isabella nevertheless became equally star-struck with Anne and they remained friends and occasional lovers.
throughout the remainder of Anne’s life.
The BBC's period drama Gentleman Jack is not one to be missed!
