The house has been the family seat of the Guise Baronets for nearly 800 years, first granted by John De Burg with the rent set at "One clove of Gillyflower" each year. The current owner, Anselm Guise, inherited the estate from his uncle in 2007, with the Baronetcy going to Anselm's father, Sir Christopher James Guise.
The Guise family were non-resident from about 1685 to about 1845, when Sir John Wright Guise took up residence. The house was used as a school from 1778, originally under the Revd. Charles Bishop (died 1788), and later under the Carveth family to about 1830. Its most distinguished pupil was the future surgeon William Lawrence FRS.
In February 2013, Anselm Guise's plans for a new function room called The Gillyflower at Elmore Court featured in the BBC2 TV programme, Permission Impossible: Britain's Planners.
Elmore Court and The Gillyflower opened for weddings and events in November 2013.
