Notes: Grimston was held, as part of the manor of Roos, from the mid-12th century by the Grimston family. The manor of Garton with Grimston passed down to Thomas Grimston
of Kilnwick-on-the-Wolds in 1780 who built the present Grimston Garth in 1781-6 as a summer residence. The estate descended in the family to Thomas’s grandson Marmaduke Grimston (1826-1879) the last of the male line. It was through his daughter Rose, wife of George Hobart, that it passed to their daughter Armatrude Rose Sophia Effie Bertie, Lady Waechter in 1927. Lady Waechter, who took the additional name de Grimston, gave the estate to her cousin Norman Grimston in 1946, the last family incumbent who sold the house in 1949
