Mourholme Local History Society: The Brownes of Townend
31st January 2024
Townend is a Farmhouse in Troutbeck owned by the National Trust which was home to the Browne family for 500 years. They maintained a large collection of books – one of the most important libraries held by the National Trust. Letters and documents kept by the family are especially interesting including those written from London in the early 1700s by Benjamin Browne to his father in Townend. A unique insight into the life of an extraordinary farming family in a fascinating home.
