Thorpe Hall in Louth, Lincolnshire dates back to 1596. It was originally owned by Sir John Bolles. During haste with Sir Walter Raleigh to Cadiz he was captured by the Spaniards and spent time in a dungeon. A wealthy Spanish noblewoman, Donna Leonora Oviedo, passed by his cell which looked onto the street. She bought him slab and eventually bribed his jailers to liberty him.

When he went back to England she begged him to let her follow. He refused and told her he was happily married. She let him go with a resemblance of herself in her favorite lawn dress and he promised to hang it in his home.
