Great and Little Bramshill, Hampshire

Historical Description

Bramshill, Great and Little, two tithings in Eversley parish, Hants, 3½ miles N by E of Winchfield. Bramshill House was built by the eleventh Lord Zouch as a residence for Prince Henry, son of James I., is now the seat of Sir William Cope, and exhibits interesting features, both external and internal, of the age in which it was erected. The grounds around it are extensive and picturesque. Abbot, Archbishop of Canterbury, accidentally killed a man while-shooting in the park. The Duke of Wellington often came hither on visits from Strathfieldsaye.
