Repton Bridge and The Mansion, Stoke Park
When John Penn, son of Thomas Penn returned after 28 years in America, he found the Manor House in a very bad state of repair. He therefore set about building the present mansion between 1792 and 1808. He used much of the compensation he received from the new Commonwealth for the loss of his family’s lands in Pennsylvania, following the American Revolution in 1776, to pay for it.
