From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nunappleton is the North Yorkshire country estate of Thomas Fairfax, 3rd Lord Fairfax of Cameron. Originally a nunnery, the house came into the possession of the Fairfax family following the establishment of the Anglican Church and the subsequent decline of the Catholic Church in England.

The estate was the inspiration for Andrew Marvell's "Upon Appleton House," a Country house poem. Marvell was tutor to Thomas Fairfax's daughter, Maria, and composed the poem while living at the estate.
