- Captain George Warre through The Art Fund
Of the dozens of objects and works of art to have been Art Funded for the house, particularly striking is the Chinese lacquer fall-front secretaire, acquired with a contribution from the Art Fund of £75,000. It was probably made for Isabella Dowager Marchioness of Hartford, who inherited the house in the early 19th century.
Hieronimos Custodis's portrait of Lady Bennet was Art Funded in 2003 with a contribution of £20,000 towards the 35,000 total. Lady Bennet became mother-in-law to Elizabeth Ingram, whose father re-built Temple Newsam from 1622.
