Sir Harry Atkinson died in Parliament buildings, Wellington, on 28 June 1892, and four years later Lady Anne Atkinson sold Hurworth to Joseph Crockett. By 1894, when this photograph was taken, the house looked quite different to when it had originally been constructed in 1855-56. A sitting and dining room had since been added, interiors re-decorated, and the roof shingles replaced with corrugated iron.
