The earliest part of Hainton Hall, the south front (shown here), probably dates from the mid-seventeenth century.

The pair of octagonal turrets, between the 5-bay front and the short projecting wings, have ogee shaped cupolas.

This view from the south-west shows the west wing of Hainton Hall rebuilt for the Heneages by Peter Atkinson in the first decade of the nineteenth century.

Atkinson also faced the whole of the house in stucco at about this time.

The porch is attributed to William Burn (1875).

The south front (right) has changed considerably since this photograph was taken. The right half (tower with turret and projecting wing) was been demolished in 1956 and replaced in 1984.

White's Directory of Lincolnshire 1856 states :-

"George 'Fieschi Heneage, Esq., M.P., the owner of the soil, impropriator, and lord of the manor, resides at Hainton Hall, a large ancient mansion, with modern additions and well-wooded pleasure grounds, which has been a seat of his family since the reign of Henry III, and contains a fine collection of paintings by old masters, as well as some excellent family portraits, particularly one of Sir Thomas Heneage Knt., who was M.P. for Lincolnshire, Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, &c., in the reign of Elizabeth"

North side of hall which was once much larger.

The OS 25 inch map published 1906 shows that the tennis court was once occupied by the east wing of the hall.

"On Whit Sunday 1919 a fire destroyed the east wing, which was rebuilt by Lord Heneage in two rather than the original four storeys.

Lord Heneage died in 1922 and in 1924 a further fire occurred causing more damage to the Hall.

When the second Lord Heneage died in 1954 the estate passed to the nine-year-old James Neil Heneage from another branch of the family.

During his minority the trustees demolished the east wing in 1956 and removed the top storey of the central block"

Hainton has been owned by the Heneage family since the fourteenth century.

The church of St Mary is largely a rebuild of 1848 by E. J. Willson though old masonry was used.

The north chapel houses glorious Heneage monuments from 1435. Twentieth-century Heneages are remembered in the chancel.

Willson built a Roman Catholic chapel in the Hall grounds close by in 1836.

White's Directory of Lincolnshire 1856 states :-

"The Church (St. Mary) containing many handsome monuments and effigies of distinguished members of the Heneage family, is a neat structure, with a tower surmounted by a lofty spire.

The benefice is a discharged vicarage, in the patronage of the Dean and Chapter of Lincoln, valued in K.B. at £7. 10s. 10d., and now at £140, in the incumbency of the Rev. George Davenport Whitehead, M.A., of Lincoln.

The Heneages were an ancient Catholic family; but the late G. R. Heneage, Esq., embraced the Protestant faith, which is held by his son, the present lord of the manor, who married a Catholic lady, and erected here a handsome Catholic Chapel, in 1836, in lieu of the ancient chapel at Sixhills"
