AdminHistoryKingston Hall was designed by the architect Roger Pratt for Ralph Bankes and built in 1663. Prior to 1928, its design was attributed to Inigo Jones until the publication of Roger Pratt's notes. The house was originally known as Kingston Hall until it was significantly altered by William John Bankes and Charles Barry in the 1830s and renamed Kingston Lacy.

This catalogue has been produced with the valuable assistance of lists produced by the architectural historian, Antony Cleminson, and by staff of the National Trust.

See Antony Cleminson's article entitled 'The Transition from Kingston Hall to Kingston Lacy' in Architectural History 31 (1988) and Kingston Lacy, Dorset (The National Trust 1994).
