History – The Marriott Family

The Marriott family has owned and lived on the Cotesbach Estate since Robert Marriott bought the Estate and parish in 1759. The Estate has changed drastically since that time with tranches of land sold off, and the laying of the A426 which cut the farmland in half. Cotesbach Estate is still owned by the Marriott descendants as the Cotesbach Family Trust, one of whom, Sophy Newton has lived in the Hall since 1992 with her husband Tom.

Sophy has shared some of her personal memories about the Estate and the Trust’s buildings.
