The Lowndes Arms Ghost Hunt, Whaddon, Buckinghamshire - 13th October 2012
11.30pm until 3.30am · Tickets £25 per person
Whaddon, Buckinghamshire is an old English word for 'Wheat Hill' and the village (Whaddon) is mentioned in the Domesday Book.
It is best known as the original home of the Whaddon Chase Foxhounds, started by the Selby-Lowndes family back in the 1800s.
Whaddon Hall was the Manor House for many years and the home of the Lowndes family from 1783 when Mr W. Lowndes Selby took possession of the Hall. In 1813 his son took again the family name of Lowndes after that of Selby, and so the name of Selby-Lowndes became associated with the village and remains in the memory of many of the older villagers.
Lowndes's family was of long standing in Buckinghamshire, which his grandfather had represented from 1741 to 1774. Thomas James Selby of Whaddon, a former sheriff of the county, who died in 1772, left directions in his will that, in default of rightful heirs, the estate should go to Lowndes's father, on condition that he assumed the name of Selby. After litigation, his claim was recognized in 1783. On succeeding to the Whaddon estate in 1813 Lowndes himself took the additional name of Selby, 'out of respect for the memory' of his father's benefactor.
The Lowndes Arms, Whaddon, Buckinghamshire is a 16th and 17th century public house with many original features.
