Penshurst Castle

near Penshurst, Kent - Lord de L'Isle and Dudley


"The ancient and noble mansion of Penshurst stands at the south-east corner of a park beautifully diversified with woods, hills and lawns, and well planted with large oak, beech and chestnut trees. The hall is a striking object of architectural beauty.

In the reign of Edward the First this manor was possessed by Sir Stephen de Peneshurste, after whom it successively became the property of the families of Columbers, de Pulteney, and Devereux. It was embattled and fortified under royal licence granted by King Richard II. to Sir John Devereux, who then, shortly afterwards, sold the manor to John, Duke of Bedford, third son of King Henry IV.

In later times, Sir William Sydney, one of the commanders at the battle of Flodden Field, was granted Penshurst Place by Edward the Sixth. His descendant, Sir Robert Sydney, was created successively Baron Sydney, Viscount L'Isle and Earl of Leicester by King James the First."
