From the old descriptive: KIRTLING TOWER

NEAR NEWMARKET, CAMBRIDGESHIRE. - BARONESS NORTH. - Kirtling Tower was built about the time of Henry the Sixth. It stood on the site of an old Saxon castle, and tradition says that it was the last castle in which King Harold slept on his way from the north ot meet the invasion of William of Normandy. - Princess Elizabeth, afterwards Queen, was a state prisoner at Kirtling, under the charge of Edward, first Lord North. - The tower is all that now remains of the old hall, which was pulled down in 1801-02, by Georg, third Earl of Guilford and ninth Baron North. Nearly all the pictures of the North family were removed to Wroxton Abbey near Banbury, another seat of the the family.

A copy of the circa 1870s descriptive, which covers some wonderful landscape history and some genealogy information will be included with the print. Some of the names mentioned are: EDWARD NORTH, AFTERWARDS KNIGHTED - SIR ROGER NORTH - DUDLEY NORTH - CHARLES NORTH - WILLIAM NORTH - FRANCIS NORTH - FREDERICK NORTH - GEORGE AUGUSTUS NORTH - LADY SUSAN NORTH - LADY GEORGIANA NORTH - BARONESS NORTH - WILLIAM HENRY HOHN NORTH - WILLIAM FREDERICK JOHN NORTH
