Hanborough, Oxford

bullet

Harrison: "Walter Culpeper (1541?-1616) of Handborough, co. Oxon, o. s. p. m. He is named in his father's will (1559) 'Walter Culpeper my fourth son.' He seems to have been the first of his family to matriculate at Hart Hall, Oxford, whence he graduated B. A. in 1569 (Foster). He was also of Grays Inn, 1565 (Foster) and later was included in the commission of the peace of Oxfordshire. The other records of him are chiefly in the parish register of Handborough, co. Oxon, where his brother Martin had acquired an estate, as appears from his Will."

Charter, 76 H 12) that Sir John8 left a will (otherwise lost) disposing of his estates among two sons, Alexander and Walter, named respectively for their maternal uncle, Alexander Clifford of Bobbing (thus introducing among the Culpepers a name which was to appear in Virginia), and for their grandfather, the Squire of Agincourt. These estates included the manors acquired by the Bedgebury marriage (Bedgebury and Haselden) in Kent, an inherited Culpeper manor (Wigsell) in Sussex, and certain lands in Essex which Sir John had purchased."

Hampton Court Palace.(retrieve photo) Hampton Court Palace (a 20 minute cab ride from Heathrow Airport and six miles from Windsor Castle) was originally built by Thomas, Cardinal Wolsey, during the reign of Henry VIII. When the issue of the dissolution of the King's marriage to Catherine of Aragon came about, the Cardinal saw his favor with the King begin to wane. After the Cardinal made a comment to the King to the effect of 'anything that I have is yours', Henry decided that the Cardinal just made a gift of Hampton Court Palace!
    The coat of arms of Catherine Howard appears in a stained glass window in the Great Hall at Hampton Court Palace. It has the Howard arms quartered with the Culpeper arms (her mother having been Joyce Culpeper.) The same coat of arms, with the quarterings of Howard and Culpeper, appears above the entrance to the cathedral precinct at Canterbury Cathedral, together with the coats of arms of Henry's five other wives.  (Source: Glen Culpeper of South Africa)

Saxmundham, Suffolk

Framlingham Castle, near Saxmundham, Suffolk. Here is a destination worth visiting for many reasons -- genealogical, history, architecture, setting, even the great pub meals a few yards from the gate. 

The first castle on the site was built by Roger Bigod, on land he received from Henry I. The castle seen today was begun some years later, in 1190, by another Roger Bigod, 2nd Earl of Norfolk. An earlier fortification had been destroyed after being forfeited by Roger's father to King Henry II (for being part of the rebellion of 1173-74).

Framlingham has massive curtain walls 40 feet high and eight feet thick, sectioned by 13 towers, and surrounded by deep ditches. It is a good walk all the way around. For many years the castle was owned by the Howard family. It was here that Mary Tudor waited out the Lady Jane Grey crisis in 1553, and gathered her support, leaving from Framlingham on her triumphal journey to London.

Years later, the Howard family sold the castle to Sir Robert Hitcham, and when he died in 1636 he left it to Pembroke College, Cambridge. The building on the site of the old great hall was built during these times and subsequently served as the parish poorhouse until it was closed in the 1830s. Now it houses the castle office and gift shop of English Heritage, which maintains the site.

Framlingham is a fascinating place, whether or not you include Howard or Hitcham or Bigod in your family tree. It played many parts on the national and local stage. There is an audio tour to enhance the visual impact -- with 28 points of interest on the walls and in the castle yard. Some English Heritage sites are open year round, and this is one of them (picture, hours, etc.)
