Deene Park

near Rockingham, Northamptonshire - Countess of Cardigan

"Deene Park, the beautiful seat of the Countess of Cardigan and de Lancastre, was formerly a Priory, belonging to the Abbey of Westminster at the time of the Conqueror's Survey. The Abbot of Westminster was Lord of the Manor, and occasionally resorted thither for his pleasure.

The mansion at Deene is a handsome irregular stone structure with embattled turrets. The hall has a timbered paneled roof, and the windows contain the coats of arms of the noble families of Brudenell, Montagu, and Bruce, with their alliances, etc.

Sir Thomas Brudenell, in 1543, was Sheriff of the County. In 1611 he was raised by King James the First to the degree of Baronet, and in April 1627 he was elevated to the dignity of a Baron of the Realm, by the title of Lord Brudenell of Stonton Wyville, in Leicestershire. He was a zealous support of the royal cause during the civil wars, and on the restoration of Charles the Second was created Earl of Cardigan.

The Right Honorable Adeline Louisa Maria, only daughter of Spencer Horsey de Horsey, Esq., as second wife of James Thomas Brudenell, the seventh Earl of Cardigan, became possessed of this manor on his death in 1868. She married, in 1873, the Count de Lancastre Saldanha."
