The Handley Monument, Sleaford, Lincolnshire

The Handleys were a prominent family in Sleaford during the late 18th century and early 19th century.

An offshoot of the notable Newark family, the Handleys of Sleaford came to hold position as lawyers, bankers, politicians and clerics in the town and attained great wealth and holdings in the area.

In the latter part of the 1800s elements of the family emigrated to New Zealand (and later Australia) as well as returning to Newark.

Buildings and monuments related to the Handleys still exist in modern day Sleaford — including Handley street, Benjamin Handley's manor house on Northgate, Lloyd's Bank (Alvey House) and the Handley Monument.
