Looking at the size of the mansion in some photos I took back then I'm surprised they only took 12 years to build it.

Anyone have contact with Gerry Cullen recently? The website appears to have been taken over and offered for sale (rather a niche identity tho!). I have taken a copy of it from the Wayback engine to ensure it isn't lost but I would be keen to re-establish it somewhere accessible with massive acknowledgement of Gerry's work.
I am interested in the Rolt side, I believe I am descended from Anne Bayntun / Edward Rolt through illegitimate descent - a long story but interesting (via transportation, escape, mutiny etc)!
Curiously, my GG Grandfather Sir John Rolt (1804-1871) bought Miserden estate, possibly to re-assert a link to the Bayntun / Rolt family. He probably could not have known of his lineage but would obviously have been aware of them.
I'm happy to share what I know / suspect with anyone else with those family links. Incidentally, in response to the question of how far back the Bayntun connections go, the website shows lineage back through various kings (Edward III and predecessors) back to Alfred the Great (from whom I reckon I inherited an ability to burn the cooking ;).
Regards, John Rolt (London)
Rolt / Ihlee / Snow /  Burnie (Ayrshire) / Kennedy (Ayrshire) / Hessenberg / Strachan / Howman/ Chieveley / Knightley / Hiorns / Bayntun / Wilmot / Rochester .. etc
