Holthouse, designed and presented by Minton. The house was described in obituary
of Reverend C. S. Holthouse (A Pilgramage to Hellidon, Northamptonshire Herald,
5 February 1881) as 'one of the happiest specimens of Butterfield's domestic
architecture, shewing in gable and dormer and outside staircase its natural
growth from a small beginning'. The nucleus of the rectory was a small baker's
house purchased by the Reverend C.S. Holthouse, remodelled and extended at a
cost of £1143,15.04.
(Holthouse papers: Northants Record Office).
