The house was built for 'young' Sir John Brownlow in 1685-88 by mason and builder William Stanton.

It was home to successive generations of the Brownlow and Cust families until the House and the Park were acquired by the National Trust in 1984. It receives some 400,000 visitors each year.

The Cust and Brownlow papers are now in Lincolnshire Archives.

White's Directory of Lincolnshire 1856 states :-

"BELTON, one of the handsomest villages in the county, 3 miles N.N.E. of Grantham, in the picturesque vale of the Witham, has in its parish 182 souls, and about 1700 acres of land, all, except 30 acres of glebe, belonging to Earl Brownlow, the lord of the manor, whose seat is BELTON HOUSE, a large mansion, in an extensive and well-wooded deer park, with beautiful gardens and pleasure grounds.

This and other estates were purchased by Richard Brownlow, Esq., who was Prothonotary of the Court of Common Pleas, in the reigns of Elizabeth and James I. In 1661, his two sons were created baronets.

His great-grandson, Sir John Brownlow, the third baronet, rebuilt the mansion, from a design by Sir Christopher Wren, who commenced the erection in 1685, and completed it in 1689.

It is built of stone, in the form of the letter H, presenting four uniform fronts.

In 1775, it was improved under the direction of James Wyatt, Esq.

The apartments are numerous, lofty, and well-proportioned, and contain many good pictures, by eminent masters of the Flemish and Italian schools, with numerous portraits by Lely, Kneller, Reynolds, Romney, and others.

They also contain some of the finest carvings of Grinling Gibbons, which were restored in 1856.

The founder of this mansion had the honour of a visit from William III., who, on his progress through the northern counties, was entertained at Belton House, October 29th, 1695.

In 1690, he obtained a royal license to form a park of his lands in Belton, Londonthorpe, and Manthorpe, which he enclosed with a wall five miles in circumference, and at the same time made numerous plantations.

His nephew, Sir John Brownlow, K.B., was created Viscount Tyrconnel, in 1718; but dying without issue, in 1754, his estates passed to his nephew, Sir John Cust, Bart., son of his sister, Lady Cust.

Sir Brownlow Cust, Bart., son of the latter, was created Baron Brownlow, of Belton, in 1776.

He died in 1807, and was succeeded by his son, the late Rt Hon John Cust, F.R.S., who, in 1815, was created Viscount Alford and Earl Brownlow.

At his death, in 1853, he was succeeded by his grandson, the Rt. Hon. John Wm. Spencer Brownlow Egerton, the present EARL BROWNLOW and Viscount Alford"

Accommodation for the troops was initially in bell tents but they were replaced in 1915 by prefabricated wooden huts (shown here).

Supplies to the camp were carried on a standard gauge branch line from the main line at Peascliffe north of Grantham.

"The Great Dining Room, now the Library, has been greatly altered and all traces of Carolean decoration removed, first by James Wyatt in 1778 when it was transformed into a drawing room with a vaulted ceiling, and again in 1876, when its use was again changed, this time to a library.

The room contains some 6000 volumes, a superb example of book collecting over 350 years.

When Lord Tyrconnel died in 1754 a catalogue of his library identified almost 2,300 books. Almost all of these remain in the Belton library today.

The room is fully panelled, and parts of the panelling contain lime wood embellishments attributed to Grinling Gibbons.

In the early 19th century, this room, and some others, were re-modelled by Jeffry Wyatville, who in addition to graining and painting the panelling to imitate oak installed new doors"

This fine postcard depicts the garden with the fountain in full flow.

The fountain is believed to have been pumped by a pump made by John Braithwaite in 1817 and now in store at the Science Museum.

The pump was powered by a waterwheel which still survives in situ.

Braithwaite's detailed invoice for the work survives in the Brownlow deposit at Lincolnshire Archives and it is a remarkable list of parts together with details of the labour for installation.

This sunken formal garden and fountain are recognisable today, though the garden design is much simplified and water no longer issues from the fountain.

"Personet haec caelis Dulcissima vox Gabrielis"

the most ancient portion of the church is the Norman arcade of the aisle; next in date is the greater part of the tower: the remainder of the structure is Perpendicular and in part modern; the chancel was built by Alicia, Lady Brownlow, in 1721, and the mortuary chapel belongs to the last century:

in the centre of the latter is an altar tomb of black and white marble, with a recumbent effigy, by the late Baron Marochetti, of John, first Earl Brownlow, d. 15 Sept. 1853, in his robes as a peer:

placed against the walls are fine monuments to Sophia (Hume) and Caroline (Fludyer), the earl's first two wives: the former of these includes a figure of "Religion," by Canova ; another monument, designed by the late Sir G.G. Scott R.A. commemorates John Hume, Viscount Alford M.P. d. 3 January, 1851, and there is a third, with tabernacle work in the Perpendicular style, to J.W.S. Brownlow Egerton-Cust, second earl, d. 20 Feb. 1867:

in the chancel are memorials to Richard Brownlow, of Belton, prothonotary, ob. 1638; Sir John Brownlow bart. his son, ob. 1679; and Alicia (Pullen), his wife, ob. 1676, with effigies; Sir Richard Brownlow bart. ob. 1668, and Elizabeth (Freke), his wife; Sir John Brownlow, his son, who built Belton House, 1697; Sir John Brownlow bart. M.P. afterwards Baron Charleville and Viscount Tyrconnel, 1754, and Eleanor (Brownlow), his first wife; the Right Hon. Sir John Cust P.C., M.P. for Grantham and Speaker of the House of Commons in 1761, ob. 1770, his son, Sir Brownlow Cust, first Baron Brownlow, d. 25 December, 1807, and others of that family to 1858 ; and also a monument to the Hon. and Rev. Richard Cust, rector of Belton from 1810 to 1864, who died. 17 July in that year:

the octangular basin of the font is ornamented around its sides with a series of quaint carvings:

the east window and one on the south side of the nave are stained; the latter, presented by Frances, Lady Brownlow, in 1823, displays numerous shields, bearing the arms of the Brownlow, Tyrconnel and Cust families, dating from 1641 to 1815:

there are 130 sittings.

White's Directory of Lincolnshire 1856 states :-

"Belton Church (St. Peter and St. Paul) is an interesting structure in the perpendicular style of the time of Henry VII.,except the tower, which is in the early English style, and was crowned with new pinnacles in 1637.

The chancel was rebuilt in 1721.

The interior has many memorials of the Brownlow and Cust families.

A finely sculptured recumbent figure of the late Earl Brownlow, by Baron Marochetti, is about to be placed in the sepulchral chapel, where there is a fine statue of Religion, by Canova, in memory of Sophia, Lady Brownlow.

The rectory, valued in K.B. at £12. 13s. 6½d., has a good residence, 30 acres of glebe, and a tithe rent now amounting to £465 per annum.

"In 1766 he was elected as a Member of Parliament for Ilchester in Somerset, a seat he held until 1774, and then represented Grantham between 1774 and 1776, in which year he was raised to the peerage as Baron Brownlow, "of Belton in the County of Lincoln".

The peerage was chiefly in recognition of his father's services, and the name of his title refers to his paternal grandmother Anne Brownlow (Lady Cust), sister and heiress in her issue of John Brownlow, 1st Viscount Tyrconnel (1690–1754), of Belton House, and wife of Sir Richard Cust, 2nd Baronet.

In 1776 he was made a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London and in 1783 was made a Fellow of the Royal Society"

Marble effigy of her husband by Emmeline 'Nina' Cust (1867–1955).

"Emmeline 'Nina' Cust (1867–1955) was an English writer, editor, translator and sculptor.

She was a member of The Souls, an upper class circle that challenged the conventions and attitudes of their class in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries ...

On 11 October 1893, Cust married another member of The Souls, Henry John Cockayne-Cust.

She supported her husband in much of his work, including correspondence for the Central Committee for National Patriotic Organisations.

Cust was devoted to her husband, despite a reputedly unhappy marriage that lasted until his death in 1917.

Cust was a direct neighbour of sculptor Jacob Epstein when they both lived at Hyde Park Gate in London"

He built the grand mansion of Belton House, which survives today ...

As he died without surviving male issue, he was succeeded in his title and in most of his estates, including Belton, by his younger brother Sir William Brownlow, 4th Baronet (1665-1701), who received Belton House on condition that John's widow Alice Sherard should retain possession of it during her lifetime.

As she outlived Sir William, it therefore passed on her death in 1721 to William's son John Brownlow, 1st Viscount Tyrconnel (1690-1754)"
