The History of Ditton Manor

Ditton Park is known to have been occupied for at least nine hundred years. Ditton Manor was first mentioned in the Doomsday Book (1066) when it was owned by William, Son of Ansculf. By 1331 Sir John de Molyns was granted a licence by Edward III to fortify his mansion and to build a park of 38 acres. In 1472 the property reverted to the crown and was at the time the residence of Cardinal Wolsey.

Later in 1532, Anne Boleyn was Keeper of Ditton Park as part of her endowment from Henry VIII. His first daughter, the future Queen Mary I, spent much of her young childhood here. In 1615, the property was given to Sir Ralph Winwood, who rebuilt the house around the original tower and enlarged the moat.  Read more...
