Jonty has just finished A' levels at Winchester College and leaves the
house early to read history at Magdalen College, Oxford; the same college,
incidentally that his grand-father attended in the 1900s. He enjoys athletics
and rowing, and has a particular fascination in late Victorian and Edwardian
social and political history.
Jonty is using this opportunity to escape the temptations of television,
e-mail and the telephone. He is the family philosopher and is hoping the Country
House experience will bring the family closer together.
"The chance to actually live in the style of a world that no longer exists is
what I really look forward to."
In the house, Mister Jonathan probably has the most freedom and the least responsibility.
As the eldest son, he is very much free to do as he wishes - within the bounds of etiquette,
The rules state "As the Eldest Son, you should look up to the Master of the House
and follow his example. You should respect his word as final and endeavour to enhance
the position and good name of your Family. After all, your Family are new to this
part of the country and it is in your interests to see that they establish a good
reputation and position within society."
