Shirburn Castle

near Tetsworth, Oxfordshire - Earl of Macclesfield


"It appears that, in the fifty-first year of Edward the Third, Sir Wariner de L'Isle obtained permission to build a castle at Shirburn. It is nearly in the form of a parallelogram, and the whole building is encompassed by a broad and deep moat. At each angle of the edifice is a circular tower.

Thomas Parker, of Leake, Staffordshire, purchased the castle and manor of Shirburn at the commencement of the last century. He was created Baron Macclesfield in 1716 and advanced to the dignity of Viscount Parker and Earl of Macclesfield in 1721. His son, George Parker, was President of the Royal Society."
