Historical Description

In the parish Church of Winkfield, two miles from Warfield, there is a tablet, with the figure, engraved on brass, of an aged man distributing bread to the poor, in memory of Thomas Mountague, yeoman of the guards, who died in 1630, aged ninety-two; and the tomb of Thomas Wise, master mason of England, 1635.

The Earl of Ranelagh, in 1710, built a free school for boys, and another for girls, under the same roof, on Winkfield Plain, and endowed them with the manor of Kelleagh in Ireland, and other estates. Thomas Maule, Esq. in 1715, gave 200l. to these schools, which was laid out in lands in the parish of Winkfield. Mr. Hatch, who had received his education at the school, gave about the year 1780, the sum of 500l. as a grateful acknowledgment for the advantages he had himself received.

In this parish is Cranbourn Lodge, erected by Richard Earl of Ranelagh, paymaster of the forces in the reign of King Charles II. and since occupied successively by Charles Duke of St. Alban’s, the Duke of Cumberland his majesty’s uncle, and by his late brother the Duke of York; it is now the seat of the Duke of Gloucester. This lodge is most pleasantly situated, and has an extensive prospect, over a fine plain country. In a spacious chamber in the house are painted and regularly ranged in large panels, the military dresses of the different corps in the armies of Europe.

Fern Hill, the seat of Francis Knollys, Esq. is pleasantly situated on an eminence. It was formerly the seat of General Clayton, who lost his life in the glorious battle of Dettingen in 1743.

The other principal seats in this parish are Winkfield Place, the property of Stanlake Batson, Esq. Winkfield Park, the property of Thomas Bingley, Esq. and Lovell Hill, the seat of Charles Shard, Esq. Saint Leonard’s Hill, the seat of General Harcourt, in the parish of Clewer, is only a short distance from Cranbourn Lodge, and requires a particular notice on account of its delightful situation, and the large plantation of oak and beech, which here form a most agreeable variety. The mansion is situated on the summit of the hill, and was first begun by the Dutchess of Gloucester, when Countess of Walgrave, and greatly improved by bis Royal Highness the Duke, and then called Gloucester Lodge. It was purchased by the present proprietor, about the year 1781. The house is elegant, and commands an extensive prospect over the river Thames, and a most beautiful and fertile country. On the side of the hill is a pleasing villa, equally beautiful in its situation and large plantations, for many years the residence of several persons of distinction, until purchased by the Duke of Gloucester, as an appendage or farm to Gloucester Lodge.
