the prototype of " Sir Roger de Coverley."
He married, in 1721, Elizabeth, daughter
of John Conyers, Esq., of Walthamstow,



and was father of Sir Herbert Perrott Pa-
kington, Bart., whose only son, Sir John
Pakington, the last Baronet, died s.^j. in
1830, leaving his nephew, John Somerset
Russell (the son of his eldest sister), his
heir and representative. That gentleman, who
has been created a Baronet, and now holds
the seals of office as one of H.M. Principal
Secretaries of State, resides at the old
Mansion House of Westwood, and is the
present Right Honourable Sir John Somer-
set Pakington, Bart., M.P.

Westwood House consists of a square
building, from each corner of which projects
a wing, in the form of a parallelogram,
tnrretted after the fashion of the Chateau
de Madrid, near Paris. It is situated on a
rising ground, embosomed in plantations of
oak timber, and presents an aspect of great
magnificence. This ancient seat has at
various times afforded an asylum to learn-
ing ; Dr. Hammond, Bishops JMorley, Fell,
Gunning, and others, always met here with
hospitable entertainment, and in concert with
some of these, the good Lady Pakington
(Dorothy, wife of Sir John Pakington, the
second baronet) is supposed to have written
the valuable book, entitled "The whole
Duty of Man," which has been translated
into Latin, ^French, and jWelch. At the
Revolution, several learned men, who
scrupled to take tlie oaths to King William,
found an hospitable reception at Westwood.
Dean Hickes, who •sn'ote there the greater
part of his "Linguarum Septentrionalium
Thesaurus," gives, in the preface to his
Grammatica Anglo-Saxonica, this eulogistic
description of the beautiful residence of the
Pakingtons : — Ibi porticus, atria, propyloea,
horti, ambulacra clausa ct Subdialia, recta
et suauosa, omnia, Studiis commoda : ibi
luci, silvas, nemora, prata, saltus, planities,
pascua, et nihil non, quod animum pene a
Uteris abhorrentem ad legendum audien-
dumque, et quovis modo discendum, com-
ponere et concUiare potest.

DONINGTON HALL, co. Leicester, the seat
of the Marquis of Hastings. This magniiicent
seat, in Leicestershire, second only to Belvoir
Castle, is situated at the north-western extre-
mity of the county. It was erected in 1795 by
the first Marquis of Hastings, from the designs
of Sir Jeflrey W)'attville, and is certainly
one of the happiest of his productions. Tlio

noble park which surrounds the house offered
many finer situations for a mansion than the
one selected, which is very nearly that of the
three previous Halls ; but shelter and re-
tirement were preferred to a commanding
position, and hence it was that a point in
whicli three valleys meet Avas fixed upon,
rather than one of the many eminences with
which the park abounds. It is such a site
in fact as would have been chosen for a
monastic house. A feudal castle (whence
the name of tlie tower) had once stood near,
and it was at first purposed to erect a castel-
lated edifice, but the good taste of the ]\Iar-
quis of Hastings saw the absurdity of build-
ing a fortress in times when fortresses were
not needed, and this magnificent, and yet truly
comfortable mansion was happily adopted.
As a work of great architectural beauty,
Donington Hall has a claim to the highest
commendation. The south front of the
house, built of white freestone, found on the
spot, is exceedingly graceful. The centre
has a chaste portico, surmounted by a lan-
tern tower, and the whole pagocle has an
effect strikingly beautiful.

The Gothic entrance hall is 24 feet square,
the dining-room 48 feet by 24, and the draw-
ing-room 40 by 24. The private chapel, which
forms the eastern wing, is 58 feet by 20.
The library is 72 feet by 26, and contains
upwards of 13,000 volumes, besides many
rare manuscripts. Pamtings by the old
masters adorn every room, and the series of
portraits of the Plautagenet kings, from
whom the Marquis descends, is very A'a-
luable. The strong likeness whicli the
late lamented Peer bore to some of these
could scarcely fail to strike any observer.
A park of 300 acres surrounds this noble
seat, and the noble oaks with which it is
studded have been the objects of planter's
admiration and poet's song. The cliff, whicli
forms the northern point of tlie park, and
overhangs tlie Trent, is a scene of pictu-
resque loveliness, and the views from
this spot, commanding glimpses of the
Peak of Derbyshire, and nearly the whole
of Nottinghamshire, can hardly be sur-

In Donington Hall library the poet
]\Ioore wrote many of his " Irish INIelodies,"
and it was here that the first j\[arquis so
long and so hospitably entertained numbers
of French prisoners and refugees.
