Overview

Everingham Park has a landscape park and associated house. J. N. Sleed of Kensington and Thomas Knowlton are both associated with the site.

Everingham Park is of particular historical significance as it retains landscape features of the medieval deer park and three periods of landscape design in the 18th and early-19th centuries. The celebrated gardener Thomas Knowlton from nearby Londesborough was the main adviser for the work carried out in the 1730s-40s. There is no information on who was responsible for the landscaping in the 1760s and later 18th century. The little-known J.N. Sleed of Kensington was employed for the improvements in the 1820s.

The Everingham family held the manor from the archbishops by the late-11th century until the late-14th century. It then it passed through various heiresses until Sir Marmaduke Constable married Barbara heiress of John Sothill in the early-16th century.

The Constable family and their descendants owned the Everingham estate until it was sold, for the first time, in 1982.
