History of Sulgrave Manor 

A beautiful Tudor and Georgian house set in a stunning country garden, Sulgrave is a remote secluded village

The manor started its long history as a priory. During the dissolution of the monasteries, it was surrenders to the Crown. Lawrence Washington, who was a former Mayor of Northamptonshire purchase the property from King Henry VIII in 1539. Lawrence was the 5th times Great Grandfather of the first President of the USA, George Washington.

1539 Lawernce was Eager to demonstrate his burgeoning wealth, his house provides a personal statement of rank and nobility. Sulgrave Manor, though relatively modest in size, is one of the largest houses in the village; it has brick chimneys – à la mode at the time it was built – and above the south-facing entrance porch sits numerous symbols of prosperity. A triangular symbol representing sheep and wool (from which Lawrence made his wealth) are mingled with the family coat of arms, indicating his nobility, together with the Queen’s (Elizabeth I) coat of arms. “Not everyone could display such a regal symbol, indeed permission had to be granted,” explains Cymon Snow, General Manager of Sulgrave Manor today, “and a couple of theories abound, most notably that the then Princess may have stayed at Sulgrave. Rumour suggests that she was helped to escape having been imprisoned at nearby Woodstock Palace in 1554 (destroyed later during the English Civil War) and was hidden in an attic space at Sulgrave Manor”.

Indeed it is the Washington’s staunch support for the royalists that ultimately led to their undoing in England. Sulgrave Manor remained in the Washington family for three generations. But, as royalists with notable connections, they found themselves supporting the wrong side during the English Civil War and Lawrence’s great grandson, the Reverend Lawrence Washington, born at Sulgrave Manor in 1602, became destitute with no prospects for either himself or his young family. Sulgrave Manor was sold to an uncle by marriage and John Washington, eldest son of the Reverend Lawrence, became a merchant seaman and set sail for America to trade with the Virginian colony.

History Of Bishton Hall

Bishton Hall was first mentioned in the Domesday Book and the current property dates back to circa 1750, with its east wing added in the 19th century. Its Temple Garden was built in the 1840s.

In the middle of the 18th century it was bought by a lawyer, John Sparrow, who became the first chairman of the Stafford quarter sessions, famously preventing a massacre of Stafford residents at Radford Bank. He was also High Sheriff of the county, a position later held by Cecil Stafford Northcote whilst at Bishton.

Upon John Sparrow’s death, ownership passed to his eldest daughter, Charlotte. She never married but is still remembered today by the children of Colwich school which she founded. She added the east and west wings of the house in about 1820.

The Stafford Northcote's moved here in 1946 and made it into St Bede’s School.
