The elevation on Stoney Street in Nottingham was constructed in the mid seventeenth century[1] by Francis Pierrepont, third son of Robert Pierrepont, 1st Earl of Kingston-upon-Hull. The Lay Subsidy Roll of 1674 lists those liable for the hearth tax. The largest in Nottingham was Thurland House with 47, and Pierrepont house was next with 23.[2]

The house was sold by 1797 to Thomas Curtis and James Bellamy and converted for use as a fabric workshop. The buildings were demolished at the start of the 19th century and replaced.
