History of Sulgrave Manor

A beautiful Tudor and Georgian house set in a stunning country garden, Sulgrave is a remote, secluded village.

The manor started its long history as a priory. During the dissolution of the monasteries, it was surrendered to the Crown. Lawrence Washington, a former Mayor of Northamptonshire, purchased the property from King Henry VIII in 1539. Lawrence was the 5th times Great Grandfather of the first President of the USA, George Washington.

1539 Lawrence was Eager to demonstrate his burgeoning wealth. His house provides a personal statement of rank and nobility. Sulgrave Manor, though relatively modest in size, is one of the largest houses in the village; it has brick chimneys – à la mode at the time it was built – and above the south-facing entrance porch sits numerous symbols of prosperity. A triangular symbol representing sheep and wool (from which Lawrence made his wealth) is mingled with the family coat of arms, indicating his nobility, together with the Queen’s (Elizabeth I) coat of arms. “Not everyone could display such a regal symbol. Indeed, permission had to be granted,” explains Cymon Snow, General Manager of Sulgrave Manor today, “and a couple of theories abound, most notably that the then Princess may have stayed at Sulgrave. Rumour suggests that she was helped to escape having been imprisoned at nearby Woodstock Palace in 1554 (destroyed later during the English Civil War) and was hidden in an attic space at Sulgrave Manor”.

Indeed, Washington’s staunch support for the royalists ultimately led to their undoing in England. Sulgrave Manor remained in the Washington family for three generations. But, as royalists with notable connections, they supported the wrong side during the English Civil War. Lawrence’s great-grandson, the Reverend Lawrence Washington, born at Sulgrave Manor in 1602, became destitute with no prospects for himself or his young family. Sulgrave Manor was sold to an uncle by marriage. John Washington, the eldest son of the Reverend Lawrence, became a merchant seaman and set sail for America to trade with the Virginian colony.
