Families covered: Stafford of Clifton, Stafford of Stafford

Hervey Bagot of Stafford (b c1140, d before 25.08.1214)
m. (c1171) Millicent de Stafford (b c1150, dau of Robert, Lord of Stafford)

BE1883 (Stafford) reports that Hervey, "a Staffordshire gentleman of ancient family", had to sell the lordship of Drayton in order to raise the funds necessary to obtain livery of his wife's inheritance. One source indicated that Hervey Bagot was in fact named Harvey Basset but confusion may have arisen because there was a well-known branch of the Bassets at Drayton. Indeed, the dates indicate that Drayton may have moved into the Basset family from this Hervey.

Tonbridge Castle History

Following the Norman Conquest, Richard Fitz Gilbert was granted land in Kent to guard the crossing of the River Medway. He erected a simple Motte-and-bailey castle on the site. To dig the moat and erect the motte 50,000 tonnes of earth were moved. In 1088, the de Clare family (descendents of Fitz Gilbert) rebelled against King William II. His army besieged the castle. After holding for two days the castle fell and as punishment the king had both the castle and the town of Tonbridge burnt to the ground. Before 1100, the de Clares replaced the wooden castle with a stone shell keep. This was reinforced during the thirteenth century, and in 1295 a stone wall was built around the town.[1]

The twin towered gatehouse was built by Richard de Clare, sixth Earl of Hertford or his son Gilbert.[2] Construction of the gatehouse took 30 years, being completed in 1260.[3] The gatehouse shares many similarities with the ones at Caerphilly Castle built by Gilbert in 1268-1271. The great seal of England was temporarily kept here during one of Edward's visits to France.[2]

The mansion was added in 1793. Both castle and mansion are Grade I listed buildings
