Castle Howard

near Malton, Yorkshire - Earl of Carlisle


"Castle Howard was anciently called Hinderskelfe, the word meaning Hundred-hill or the place where the Hundreds meet, the Wapentakes, namely, of Bulmer and Ryedale. It is finely situated in a well-wooded district, on a gentle eminence, in the centre of a tract of similar character, and looks down on one side on an extensive and ornamental lake.

The old castle of Hinderskelfe was built in the reign of Edward III., by the then Baron of Greystock. Ralf, Lord Greystock, left an only daughter, Elizabeth, who married Thomas, Lord Dacre of Gilsland. It continued in that family until the marriage of Elizabeth, sister of George, Lord Dacre, with Lord William Howard, son of the Duke of Norfolk, and has remained in that noble family since."
