Historical Description

Hampton Court, a seat in Hope-under-Dinmore parish, Herefordshire, on the river Lugg, 4¼ miles SSE of Leominster. It belonged to the Coningsbys, and passed by marriage to the fourth Earl of Essex, by whose son it was sold to the Arkwright family, and remains in their possession. It was originally built by Sir B. Lenthall, who figured at Agincourt, and, marrying a kinswoman of Henry IV., received this estate as a marriage portion. It was restored by Campbell, is in the castellated style, forms a quadrangle with gatehouse and two towers on the north side, has a chapel with carved timber roof, and stands in an extensive deer park.
