The Dorfold estate was bought in 1603 by Sir Roger Wilbraham. It was inherited by his younger brother who in 1616 constructed the greater part of the present house. The present garden layout was established between 1794 and 1822. William Andrews Nesfield improved the park and gardens in the late-19th century.
