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.
