Manning albums

Emily Anne Manning (? - 1846), sister-in-law to Elizabeth Townshend, visited Trevallyn from March to June 1839. During her visit to County Durham, Emily completed several pencil sketches of Trevallyn - taken from different view points - at least one of which she later worked up into a watercolour. She also made a series of sketches of surrounding stations including Camyr Allyn, the home of Mr & Mrs Townshend's close friends & near neighbours, Charles & Elizabeth Boydell.

The photographs of Trevallyn are taken from an album which may have been compiled by Elizabeth Bottrell Townshend's father, John Edye Manning. Dating from the early 1860s, these images were taken prior to the Townshends' departure for Wales in 1862.
