Cranbury Park

near Winchester, Hampshire - Chamberlayne family

"Few mansions, even in the south of Hampshire, where country seats abound, are more delightfully situated than Cranbury. The hill on which it stands is one of the highest in the county, and from the extensive grounds beautiful views are obtained of Southampton Water and the Isle of Wight to the south.

Cranbury House is a large mansion, built of red brick, with stone facings. It is difficult to say exactly when it was originally built, but it is certain that it is of great antiquity.

Of the ancestors of the Chamberlayne family not a few figured prominently in the history of their country, amongst whom may be mentioned William Chamberlayne, Lord of North Ryston, chamberlain to Henry the Second, who made prisoner Robert de Bellemont, Earl of Leicester, in 1174. The baronetcy alluded to became extinct in 1776."
