More Historical Notes about Elton

Elton Hall was anciently the seat of the Sapcotes, the first of whom to reside here was Richard Sapcote, Knight, who died in 1477. About the year 1600 the family ended in three heiresses, and a few years later the Hall was purchased by Sir Peter Proby, who was Lord Mayor of London in 1622, whose great grandson, Sir John Proby, was created Earl Carysfort in 1789. On the death of William Proby, 5th Earl the titles became extinct however descendants of the family still reside at Elton Hall which also contains a magnificent library of early printed books.

Elton Rectory dates in part from Elizabethan times; an old gateway leading to the offices was brought from Warmington and re-built here by the Rev. P.C. Claughton, Rector 1845 – 1860 afterwards Bishop of St Helena.

Elton is one of the parishes of the District of Huntingdonshire, whose administrative centre is Huntingdon, the other principle towns being St Ives home of the Chapel on the Bridge, St Neots the largest town in the County of Cambridgeshire, the Roman town of Godmanchester and Ramsey site of the former Abbey.
