Fulbrook, Warwickshire

Historical Description

Fulbrook, a hamlet in Hampton Lucy parish, Warwickshire, 4 miles NNE of Stratford-on-Avon, and 4 SW of Warwick. The manor belonged to the Duke of Bedford, third son of Henry IV.; passed to the Comptons; belonged in the time of Mary, and till the beginning of the 18th century, to the Lucys, and passed to the Fullertons. A castle of brick and stone was built on it by the Duke of Bedford, and becoming ruinous in the time of Henry VIII., was then taken down by Sir William Compton. This place was formerly a parish, but the church disappeared in the 16th century.
