Audley End

near Saffron Walden, Essex - Lord Braybrooke

"This princely residence holds a distinguished place among the 'County Seats' of England.

The old manor, which was vested in the crown, was bestowed by King Henry the Eighth on Sir Thomas Audley, who was then raised to the peerage in 1538 under the title of Baron Audley of Walden. His daughter, Margaret, married firstly Lord Henry Dudley, younger brother of the husband of Lady Jane Grey, and secondly she become the second of three wives of Thomas Howard, fourth Duke of Norfolk.

Their eldest son, Thomas Howard, inherited Audley End and was summoned to the House of Lords by Queen Elizabeth as Baron Howard of Walden. He was further elevated to Earl of Suffolk by King James in 1603.

In 1797, the estate was passed to Richard Neville who succeeded Lord Howard as second Lord Braybrooke."
