The Peckovers of Wisbech
Peckover House, its garden and estate of 48 acres were given to the National Trust in 1943 by Alexandrina Peckover, the last descendant of Jonathan Peckover, the Quaker banker who had purchased the property in the 1790s.
Through their faith Quakers displayed compassion, generosity and a curiosity about the world and its people.
Throughout our 2014 season we will be commemorating the outbreak of World War One and what the Quakers, and the Peckover family did towards the war effort. For more information about the work that the Quakers did during WW1, please follow this link.
Since 1949 Peckover House, under the ownership of the National Trust, has been welcoming visitors.
The presentation of the House and Garden continues to be an evolving and ongoing process.
