About Ellen de Baguley aka Ellen de Corona

Additional Curator's Note

Ellen de Baguley ( or de Baggilegh) is often called Ellen de Corona because she was the heir of Thomas de Corona, a kinsman of hers (Thomas de Corona was Ellen's first cousin once removed.). Some researchers claim that Thomas and Ellen were brother and sister, while others claim she was his daughter. Whatever the relationship, Thomas died without heirs and left Ellen Adlington Hall, a Tudor estate in Cheshire, England. Ellen married John Leigh or Legh and brought the property into Leigh family, and it remains as their private property even today. Wikipedia has some nice pictures of the property here -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adlington_Hall. Originally the hall consisted of timber-framed buildings on three or four sides of a courtyard surrounded by a moat. The Great Hall, on the north side of the courtyard, was built between 1480 and 1505 for Thomas Legh I. -- Maria Edmonds-Zediker, Curator, 7/10/2011

Eleanor de Baggileh/Baguley .At the Conquest the lodge (Adlington Hall) came in to the possession of Hugh Lupus, Earl of Chester. In the early 13th century the hall was granted to the de Coruna family who held it for four generations before running out of male heirs. Eleanor the daughter of Sir William de Baggilegh was the heiress (see the additions and corrections in Ormerod's History of Cheshire). She married John de Legh of Booths and their son, Robert de Legh eventually succeeded to the hall and estate. The hall has remained in the same family ever since, albeit with succession through the female line in the 18th century, in 1888 when it went through two females, in 1940, and again in 1992. The family tree below showing the succession of heirs from the late 17th century is drawn in part from the hall's brochure and in part from East Cheshire Past and Present by J.P. Earwaker, London, 1877. Stuart Raymond, in Cheshire: A Genealogical Bibliography, Vol. 2 lists as a source Cheshire families: Legh of Adlington in Advertiser Notes and Queries, 1, 1882, 186-9.

  • Adlington Hall is a country house near Adlington, Cheshire. The oldest part of the existing building, the Great Hall, was constructed between 1480 and 1505; the east wing was added in 1581. The Legh family has lived in the hall and in previous buildings on the same site since the early 14th century. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adlington_Hall The first known building on the site was a Saxon hunting lodge for Earl Edwin. After the Norman conquest the estate was given to Hugh Lupus, and it remained in the possession of the Norman earls until 1221, when it passed to the Crown. Henry III granted the manor to Hugh de Corona. Hugh's son Thomas, who had no children, granted it to his sister Ellen, who married John de Legh of Booth in the early 14th century during the reign of Edward II, after which it became the ancestral home of the Leghs of Adlington.[1] Originally the hall consisted of timber-framed buildings on three or four sides of a courtyard surrounded by a moat.[2]
