The estate was purchased by William Dugdale a prominent antiquarian in 1625 who shortly thereafter built himself a new house on the site. In about 1690-1700 the house was substantially enlarged and improved with a twelve bay brick facade with two storeys and additional upper dormers.

In the 18th century, Jane Dugdale sole heiress of Blyth married Richard Geast of Handsworth. Their son, also Richard Geast, married Penelope Stratford heiress of neighbouring Merivale Hall in 1767. He inherited Blyth from his maternal uncle John Dugdale and changed his name to Dugdale in 1799.

Later Dugdales became Dugdale baronets of Blyth and Merivale. The Dugdale family is still in residence at Blyth Hall, which is not open to the public.
