The property was previously owned by the Gargrave family after being purchased in 1567 by Sir Thomas Gargrave, Speaker of the House of Commons from James Blunt, Lord Mountjoy, for 3,560.[1]

The estate was then purchased in 1654 by the London alderman Sir Rowland Winn after the previous owner was declared bankrupt in 1650. The building of the present house was started in 1733, and the furniture, furnishings and decorations made for the house remain in situ today. The family were textile merchants in London, George Wynne of Gwydir was appointed Draper to Elizabeth I, his grandson, Sir George Winn was created 1st Baronet of Nostell in 1660 and the family subsequently owed its wealth to the coal in the area, and later from leasing land in Lincolnshire for the mining of iron ore during the Industrial Revolution.

The house was built by James Paine for Sir Rowland Winn 4th Bart on the site of a 12th-century priory dedicated to Saint Oswald. Later, Robert Adam was commissioned to design additional wings, only one of which was to be completed, and complete the state rooms. Adam added a double staircase to the front of the house, and designed buildings on the estate, including the stable block.
