In 1845 Darnton Lupton, mayor of Leeds, described how he had moved from the polluted air of the town centre to Potternewton c1840; Arthur's brothers, Francis and Darnton, developed the grounds S of the hall as a building speculation and the lodge was cut off from the house by the time Church of St Martin, St Martin's View (qv) was built, 1879.
