Dunkenhalgh Hall, in the parish of Clayton-le-Moors, Lancashire, was the seat of the Walmesley family for over a hundred years, since the 1580s, when it was acquired by the attorney and judge Sir Thomas Walmesley (c.1537-1612). The last male of the family, Francis Walmesley (1696-1711) died unmarried, a minor aged 14, and the manor was inherited by his only sister, the 13-year-old Catherine Walmesley, who was married the following year to the 22-year-old 7th Baron Petre. Widowed just a year later, Catherine married again, in 1733, to the 15th Baron Stourton, whom she also survived. After her death in 1785, per her own request, Dunkenhalgh Hall was inherited by Hon. George William Petre, the 9-year-old second son of her grandson the 9th Baron Petre.
