This photograph of Earl's Court Manor House was taken in 1867 by Dr. Arthur Roberts shortly before it was demolished. Old Manor Yard, next to Earl's Court station, is the only reminder of this once important building. Erected in the 1790s it replaced an earlier building. It was occupied by the Hutchins family, tenants of Earl's Court farm for several generations. It was here that the Lords of Manor's stewards held their court and delivered their judgements, the last recorded in 1856.
