THE GREAT HALL (West Corridor)

This is a portrait of John Churchill, the 1st Duke of Marlborough with his family. You can see his wife, Sarah, seated in the middle. The girl beside her wearing a green dress is Henrietta who became the 2nd Duchess of Marlborough.

The boy on the far right of the picture was their eldest son (they had already lost their first son who died as a baby). He was called the Marquis of Blandford, but sadly he also died when he was young.
