The manor of Bunny was acquired as a dowry by Richard Parkyns when he married Elizabeth Barlowe in the 1570s and it is believed he built the original hall. Successive generations of the Parkys family were to live there until 1850. After the civil war the owner at the time, Thomas Parkyns, was elevated to the baronetage in recognition of the family's support for the throne. In 1720 the buildings were greatly renovated by Thomas Parkyn, 2nd Baronet. Further extensive re-modelling of the Hall was carried out between 1826 and 1835. In 1850 the Parkyns lineage failed and the estate was bequeathed to Mrs. Burt, the housekeeper who in turn left it to the Levinge family. He sold the whole estate to Sir Albert Ball, the Mayor of Nottingham who quickly passed it on to the Cordeux′ family. During World War II the estate and hall were bought by Bertie Edwards whose son moved out and renovated the building.
It was bought in 2000 by the family of Chek Whyte and in 2009 was for sale at a price in excess of 3 Million pounds.
