recent arrival
The castle was built in the 12th century by William de Courci, a Norman Knight when he inherited land here on his marriage. During the 12th century the spelling of the family name changed from de Courci to Courcy. The village which was originally known as Stokes became known as Stoke Coursey, and this was further corrupted into Stogursey- the name by which it is now known. The castle was inherited by Fulk de Breaute who was dishonest and who was expelled from the castle by Henry III. The castle was partly dismantled and abandoned. It was later rebuilt but was destroyed during the Wars of the Roses. The Buck brothers, Samuel and Nathaniel, are best known for their large format panoramas of major British cities published earlier in the eighteenth century. This fine engraving was published in the smaller format 'Antiquities, or venerable remains of above four hundred castles, monasteries, palaces etc. in England and Wales', published in London between 1726 and 1752.
