Greenlands, Buckinghamshire

Historical Description

Greenlands, a seat on the S border of Bucks, 2 miles NNE from Henley-on-Thames. It belonged formerly to Lady Talbot, and is now the property of the Smith family. A previous seat near it belonged to the D'Oyleys, sustained a siege of six months by the Parliamentary forces in 1644, and was then almost wholly demolished. Traces of the defensive works raised during the siege are still visible.
