Fun Facts

Before the Cobbold's came to own Glemham Hall, it was owned by two other families, the De Glemham Family first and the North family second. According to manuscripts, the Glemhams retained the estate until 1708-1709 when it was sold to Dudley North. Dudley’s wife, Catherine, was a daughter of Elihu Yale, founder of the famous American University. Elihu was generous with the wealth he accumulated; he endowed the famous American University and was also lavish in his gifts to his family. Glemham Hall obtained many treasures at the time as a result.
