Burton Constable

near Kingston-upon-Hull, Yorkshire - Baronet Constable

"The fine old baronial seat of Burton Constable is situated in Holderness, in the East Riding of Yorkshire, about nine miles from Kingston-upon-Hull. The spacious park contains a fine piece of water, crossed at one part by an ornamental bridge, over which the road leads to the porter's lodge.

This family derives in the paternal line from Richard Fitz Pont, whose son Walter, living in the reign of Henry the Second, married Margaret, daughter and heiress of Ralph de Todeni, with whom he acquired Clifford Castle, in Herefordshire, and thence assumed the name of Clifford. His descendant, Roger de Clifford, was renowned for his valour in the wards of Henry the Third, and Edward the First. Some generations after him, Sir Lewis de Clifford, was distinguished in the reigns of Edward III., Richard II. and Henry IV.; his descendant, Thomas Hugh Clifford, was created a baronet in 1814 and assumed the name of Constable."
