Overview of collections

The Felbrigg estate came to the National Trust on the death of Robert Wyndham Ketton-Cremer in 1969. The gift included all the existing furnishings, which constituted the accumulated possessions of several generations of both the Windham and the Ketton families. Of particular note are the collections formed by William Windham II during his tour of the continent in 1738-1742. His extended stay in Rome allowed the purchase of thirty two views of Rome and its environs and nineteen other pictures, which still hang in the positions Windham devised for them in the Cabinet- a room justly celebrated as the epitome of the Grand Tour collection. There is also a fine collection of marine pictures, some fine family portraits including works by Sir Peter Lely and Sir Godfrey Kneller.
