About the Author

Michael J. Rochford runs the genealogy and history research company Heir Line with his wife, Caroline Rochford. Together they’ve written several history books for major publishers, including Michael’s _Wakefield: Then & Now_ (Pen & Sword, 2016) which, according to _Who Do You Think You Are?_ magazine, contains ‘lively stories with fascinating historical detail’. In his latest book, Michael returns to his home patch, writing about one of the most interesting stately homes in Yorkshire, with an unusual history, full of thrilling twists and turns and extraordinary characters.
