Samuel Saltenstal who in 1610 started to build the house which later was to become known as Rogerthorpe Manor.
The Manor was passed to his son, Samuel Jnr. who married the daughter of John Flower of Methley.
It was then passed on to his son (also Samuel) who married the daughter of John Shann also of Methley.
This Samuel was recorded as abiding there throughout the English Civil War. During which time their assets were seized by the County Commissioners in 1648 but appear to have been returned intact.
This Samuel was also recorded as living at Rogerthorpe Manor at the time of the Great Fire of London (1666).
