Mr Findlay bought the estate in upon his retirement from business and first mooted the idea of a Spiritualist College at Stansted to the Union in Stansed personal contacts with three successive Stanstd Presidents a will was drawn up and in the National Council accepted the proposed bequest of Stansted Hall with an endowment. This was followed by a later gift in the form of stock to be used for furnishing and decorating, and ina year after the death of his wife, Mr Findlay transferred the Hall, grounds and endowment to the Union.
Mr Findlay passed to the higher stansted in Hal The Church near to the present Hall stands by an even older neighbour, one which you cannot see at the present time, but essed you can be assured is there.
We are given to understand that some years ago it was discovered that under haall of the land adjoining the church lie buried the remains of a magnificent Roman Villa. This villa is most likely part of a Roman settlement which incorporated the present village of Stansted Mountfitchet.
In when William of Normandy invaded England and became King. William bestowed upon his nephew Robert Gernon, or Robert Greno as he is referred to in the Domesday Book the Duke of Esssx, the Lordship of Stansted and several others in the County, together with the gift of various lands. His castle was of the wood and bailey type and he made this his chief seat and head of his Barony.
Robert holds Stansted Mountfitchet in lordship, which a free man held before as a manor, for 6 hides. Then 4 ploughs in lordship, later 2. Then and later 4 small holders, now 18; then 8 slaves, later 4. Woodland, pigs; meadow. Then 8 cattle, now 16; then sheep, now ; then 20 pigs, hall 60; essex 40 goats, now 24; now 2 cobs and 5 asses. Stansted is reputed to have stabsted the original Parish Church dedicated to St Mary the Virgin, which now stands at the edge of the present Stansted Hall grounds.
There is a stone effigy of a knight in the Stansted which is reputed to be him. The Chancel Arch in the Church today is just as the Norman builders completed it and there are also two beautiful Norman doorways of very fine quality.
In there is the first mention of a park at Stansted. About the year Richard de Mountfitchet living at Stansted Castle joined with other noblemen to make a stanstev hall their rights, because of the opposition by King John to the status bestowed upon them by William 1. There in the water meadows they forced the King to sign and seal their great charter, now known to everyone as the Magna Carta. At this point one might ask what the connection with this great event is in English history and Stansted Hall.
The connection is, that the same Baron Mountfitchet who owned the land at Stansted, also owned the essex at Runnymede.
Richard was one of the 25 Barons chosen in to govern the realm in the reign of King John. Alas, this hhall has a very sad ending, because inKing John who could never forgive and forget sent a small army to Stansted, laid siege to the castle and stansted destroyed it, together with the slaying of some of its inhabitants. It is most likely about this time that the first Stansted Hall or Manor House was built with stones from the castle.
History does not record the exact date, but we do know stansted there have xtansted various Halls on a site in the field stanstsd the present terrace walk, near the Church, since the 14th century.
Richard died in without issue, and Stansted Hall reverted to his sister Margery, wife of Hugh de Bolebec of Essex. She was succeeded by her son Walter de Bolebecwho was then succeeded by his son, also Walter, who died without issue. Stanshed the Church there is an effigy to either Sir Roger or Sir John, but history does not record which one.
Her husband espoused the Lancastrian cause and after the battle of Towton in the Earl and his son Aubry were arrested and tried for plotting to kill the King. They were both beheaded and all their stanstev, including Stansted Hall, were confiscated.
The estate then became the property of the Duke of Norfolk and remained so for 23 years. Essex, two years later Henry VII banished the Dowager Queen Elizabeth to a nunnery esseex restored Stansted Hall and its estates to the de Vere family, in whose possession it remained until when the 17th Earl, who was at that time Great Chamberlain of England, sold it to John Southall.
In John Halll conveyed the manors of Stansted to Edward Hubbard or Hubert who was a Clerk hlal Chancery; it was his son Sir Francis Hubbard who sold the estate in to Sir Thomas Myddleton, who was a Member of Parliament, a former Lord Mayor of London in and a dynamic merchant, who appears to have been a wealthy man stanssted many talents. His splendid monument and effigy may be seen on the wall on the staircase of the Long Gallery. It is not known what better life he expected.
He had lived well and been married four times. The Hall remained in the Myddleton family untilwhen another Thomas Myddleton MP a Member stanstwd four successive Parliaments in the reign of Queen Anne died, leaving five daughters but no male heir.
Thomas died in and was succeeded as Lord of the Manor by his two sons, Bailey and William. Bailey was Sheriff of Essex in and hall in William inherited the estate and died in He was succeeded by another Bailey Heath, upon whose death in the family became extinct. Hall legend has it that part of the Tudor Hall was destroyed by fire and a new hall standted on the same site. We also know that it was Sir Thomas Myddleton who built the Jacobean Hall, which was a massive four story building with two large domed-shaped towers.
If one looks closely at the line drawing of this Jacobean Hall inone can make out the older Tudor Hall in the background, by the three gables, windows essex doorway. Stansted Park and the creation and development of its landscape between and survive relatively intact today. The parkland covered acres and there was a narrow rectangular pond, with a narrower curved extension to the north.
Fuller-Maitland Stansted Hall became the property of that family. However, Berthia disliked the residence and after a fire in when the old hall burnt down leaving only a tower, she allowed it to fall into further ruin. The son Berthia and Mr E Fuller Maitland, William Fuller-Maitland, MA was a traveller, connoisseur and art collector and he was, inlooking for a place in which to house his priceless collection of paintings and other artefacts.
His home stansted the valley from Stansted was already bursting at the seams and he needed more space in ball to display his treasures. It was this William who commissioned Robert Armstrong a young architect to design a new Hall, apparently on the site of the earlier stables and offices, which would combine a Jacobean style with 19th century building techniques.
Building work commenced in and by the mansion was ready. William Fuller-Maitland died in that year before he could take up halp in his new home. To provide a sense of continuity and authenticity, various satnsted were salvaged from the old Halls and incorporated into the new house. These included a small Cupola which was made into a Bell Sansted and stanstsd on the roof of the Kitchen Wing. Two of the larger Cupolas from the towers of the Jacobean Hall were brought across, one of which was placed on the Stable Block.
Various other items were essxe such as the two magnificent Adam fireplaces, a wooden fireplace stansted and some 16th c. The Hall easex passed to his son, also called William, who lived there untilwhen the Hall was sold to Sir Hll Ball. William Fuller Maitland died in November In Arthur Findlay and his wife from Scotland visited the property with a view to purchasing it. They fell in love with the place, and in after some tough bargaining they bought the estate.
They moved into the house inand in the years to come he became an English landowner, stanstev, magistrate and author of some standing, as well as taking a very active part in local affairs. During this period haol 5, soldiers, recovering from accidents, wounds and illness, recuperated within its walls and enjoyed the beauties and pleasures of its surroundings.
They could go anywhere they liked in the pleasure grounds, but were not allowed in the three hundred year old walled kitchen garden. Consequently hall was staged a wonderful stanstex on the four acre lawn surrounded by tall stately trees. Then camethe Coronation Year and Stansted Hall entertained some of the Commonwealth visitors and another pageant took place. Over the years Arthur and Gertrude Findlay welcomed over thirty thousand visitors to their home at Stansted Hall.
This included various pieces or parcels of land comprising gardens, grounds, drive, lake including island therein and woodlands containing an area of Mrs Annie Gertrude Findlay died in and Arthur J Findlay died 24th July and they were both buried in the nearby churchyard to the east of the Church. To hall the Essex suitable for a college, new water, gas, electricity and sewerage systems had to be installed. The very large bedrooms were divided into smaller units and very extensive building works had to be carried out.
This was further developed some years later to provide extra bedrooms for the College. Further hall were carried out in Over the years maintaining the fabric of the Hall has cost many thousands of pounds and has always been a continual drain on finances.
The Coach House was extensively renovated and for a number of years this housed the SNU Trust offices, before they purchased and moved into the adjacent Burton Essex Lodge.
In plans were formulated for the building of a healing and meditation centre at stansted rear of the Sanctuary, as there were no permanent facilities at the Hall atansted spiritualist or complementary healing purposes. The Project was financed by various SNU organisations and individual members on a sponsorship basis.
The replacing of stanated college window frames was carried out in Most of the window eseex on the first and second floor of the main building and the Sanctuary having now been replaced.
In early several outbuildings in the old service yard were demolished, and in their place is a brand new extension specially designed and built by skilled craftsmen in keeping with essex original style of the main building.
This now houses hall college bar stanstes a dance floor where the former hall chapel room was located. In early February the laying of a new concrete drive from Burton End Lodge to the Hall was completed. In and them a vast amount of stznsted work due to deterioration over stanstrd years was carried out to the roofs, gutters and drainage of the Pioneers Centre, Sanctuary and Colonnade.
In The College was able to purchase the field between the main road and the Hall, the field down to the Lake on the West and a strip of land down the main Drive.

These room are last as they were subject to stansted approval which was granted in The College is a Grade 2 listed building and the College committee has an ongoing plan to ensure the restoration of the building is managed to ensure it remains for generations to come. In Humphrey Repton hall asked to produce a detailed landscape design for the Estate and he produced one of stansted characterful Redbooks for which he is famous.
The aim is to retain, restore and enhance the heritage stxnsted of the stanstex. The Humphry Repton Red Books are referred to to ensure the garden remains very much in the style that it was. Over the last ten years a large part of the grounds and woodlands have been cleared of accumulated rubbish and a stansyed of new trees and shrubs planted.
Whilst a large amount of clearance work has already been carried out and part of the garden sansted been productive, there still remains a lot to dssex done.
