Bulstrode Park, Buckinghamshire

Historical Description

Bulstrode Park, a fine country seat, 2½ miles ESE of Beaconsfield, in Bucks. It belonged anciently to the Bulstrodes, passed to the Jeffreyses, was sold about the end of the 17th century to the Earl of Portland, and resold in 1807 to the Duke of Somerset. A mansion was built on it by Judge Jeffreys, and is described in Mrs Montagu's letters. The present mansion was rebuilt in 1870 by Sir John Ramsden, Bart. A circular entrenchment, enclosing 21 acres, is in the park.
