The Rolleston Hall estate has had many owners over the past 700 years, and they have been passed down by inheritance.
The estate was handed over to the Brough family when Mary Trustloff, who married John Brough in 1969, previously sold the property. The estate remained in the Brough family line until the death of Marshal Brough’s widow.
