Lemington, John Snowdon's House (Pigg's Hall, Union Hall)






Post Medieval


Documentary Evidence

'John Snowdons house and close' is shown on a plan of 1620. He was likely to have been a farmer as his property is located next to the arable fields (HER 11499). By 1767 John Snowdon's house had been renamed or replaced by Pigg's Hall. The lane from the west (now Hospital Lane) was thereafter known as Hogg's or Pigg's Lonnen. By 1765 the demesne land in Newburn Hall had been divided and allocated to new tenants {Knowles 1915, 199} like John Snowdon. On the tithe map of 1848 Pigg's Hall has been renamed or replaced by Union Hall.
