Visitors Information Brochure (nice place to visit):
General Statement of Hoghton family pedigree: The de Hoghtons are of ancient lineage, descended from Harvey de Walter, one of the companions of William the Conqueror, and through the female line from the Lady Godiva of Coventry, wife of Leofric III the Great, Earl of Mercia. After the third generation from the Norman Conquest, Richard and William de Hoghton first assumed the family name around 1150. The great-grandson, Sir Adam de Hoghton, was knighted and died in 1290.
Sir Richard de Hoghton 1316-1345, Knight of the Shire in the Parliaments of 1322-27-37. Married Sybilla de Lea, direct descendant of the Lady Godiva, whose lands in Lea still form part of the Hoghton Estates. Warden of the Ports, knighted by Edward III in 1336 and given permission to empark in 1327. It was from Lea Hall (his private residence), that Thomas Hoghton went into exile in 1569, having re-built Hoghton Tower 1560-1565.
