Attingham Park was built in 1785 for Noel Hill, 1st Baron Berwick, who received his title in 1784 during the premiership of Prime Minister William Pitt the Younger. Noel Hill was a politician who aided William Pitt in the restructuring of the East India Company. Noel Hill already owned a house on the site of Attingham Park called Tern Hall, but with money he received along with his title he commissioned the architect George Steuart to design a new and grander house to be build around the original hall.
In the bottom drawer the chest has a paper label inscribed ‘These drawers are given to Dorothy Emily Briggs on her second birthday September the 19th 1894 by her Grandma Emily Briggs’,
