History   Pre 1066  Owned by Siret, vassal of King Harold, the last Anglo-Saxon King of England. 1066 -1120  After the victory at Hastings in 1066, William Fitz-Ansculf was given use of the estate by William I. In the Doomsday Book of 1086, he is listed as holding the Manor as tenant in capite (direct from the crown). 1120-1291  The descendants of the Ansculfs became the owners of the estate taking the name “de Stoke”. 1291-1331  Amicia de Stoke, the last de Stoke, married Sir Robert Poges (Puyges) and the estate passed into the Poges family. 1331-1367   During this time, the ownership was passed to Sir John de Moelyns, treasurer to Edward III,  through his wife, Gille de Moelyns, cousin and heir to Margarete Poges. Sir John rebuilt the Manor house in 1331. 1367-1441  The subsequent occupiers were Sir William de Moelyns and Richard de Moelyns. 1441-1480  Alinore de Moelyns married Robert, Lord Hungerford, a supporter of Henry VI. Henry was deposed after the War of the Roses and the estate, which had continued to descend through the family since pre-1086, was forfeited to the Crown in 1472, when it became parcel of the honour of Windsor. Henry IV later returned the estate to Alinore de Moleyns. 1480-1506  Mary Hungerford, granddaughter of Alinore de Moleyns married Edward, Lord Hastings. 1506-1543  The estate was inherited by George, Lord Hastings, the Second Earl of Huntingdon. 1543-1560  Francis, Lord Hastings, the Second Earl of Huntingdon, rebuilt the manor house in 1555.

He was the first Lord Chief Justice of England. He also tried Guy Fawkes and entertained Elizabeth I, who stayed at the Manor House in 1601. The estate was given to him in 1621 by James I. 1634-1656  Sir Edward’s daughter, Frances, inherits the estate and it becomes part of her husband’s property, Sir John Villiers, the second Duke of Buckingham. Charles I was held for a fortnight at the Manor House on his way back to London before his trial and execution. 1656-1724  The estate was sold by the Duke to John Gayer. It was later inherited by his son Sir Robert Gayer. 1724-1760  The ownership was then transferred to Edmund Halsey MP and his daughter Anne, who married Sir Richard Temple. Sir Richard later became Lord Cobham, the owner of Stowe estate. It was during this time that Capability Brown landscaped the parkland. He created the lakes from a series of medieval fishponds that can still be seen today.  1760-1775  When Anne, Dowager Viscountess Cobham, passed away in 1760, Stoke Park was purchased by the Honourable Thomas Penn, second son of the founder of Pennsylvania, William Penn. 1775-1834  John Penn inherited Stoke Park with its Manor House in 1775. The Manor House stands on the east side of the north drive leading to the Mansion. Only a third of the srcinal Manor House remains today. Penn decided to build a new Mansion (the current Clubhouse) and the initial design was completed in 1795 by the architect James Wyatt. It was located in the centre of the new parkland laid out by Humphrey Repton. In 1800, Penn commissioned the bridge and the memorials that are still in the grounds today, in memory of Sir Edward Coke and the poet Thomas Gray. 1834-1848  Stoke Park, the Mansion and the Manor House were inherited by Granville Penn. 1848-1863  The ownership was then acquired by the Right Hon.
