An account of the Vernon family of Hanbury, Worcs, from 1577 to 1961. The first member of the family in Hanbury was the rector, Richard Vernon, and his descendants bought the manor, and in about 1706, built Hanbury Hall. They became the largest landowners in Hanbury, but in the C20th the estate went into decline, and the family story ended in tragedy in 1940.
