About Bracknell

Caesar's Camp', a hill fort built by the Celts between 200BC and 40AD, and situated about two miles south of Bracknell, provides the earliest visible signs of habitation in the area. The Saxon name Lachen-stede later became Easthampstead. In the 10th Century, 'Braccan Heal' was mentioned in an Anglo-Saxon charter. The Plantagenet Kings had a hunting lodge at Easthampstead built in 1350. There are records of it being used in 1381 by Richard II and by Henry VIII in 1582. "The Bull" Inn at Bracknell is believed to be on the site where Henry VIII watched bull-baiting, a "sport" where a tethered bull was attacked by trained dogs.

Between 1776 and 1784 baiting events were advertised there every two years. Catherine of Aragon spent a miserable few years at Easthampstead Park awaiting news of Henry VIII's attempt to divorce her. William Trumbull was given Easthampstead Park in 1628 for his services at the Court of Archduke Albert of Austria in the Netherlands during 1609-1625. A condition of the gift was that he had to maintain a herd of 200 deer for the King's recreation. Mary, daughter of William Trumble the 4th, married the Marquess of Downshire in 1786 and Easthampstead became the Downshire's family home. The original mansion and hunting lodge was demolished by the 2nd Marquess of Downshire in 1860 and the present building erected in 1864.
