    Data from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Windsor,_1st_Baron_Windsor:

    Sir Andrew Windsor, 1st Baron Windsor (1467-1543) was an English nobleman. He inherited the manor of Stanwell near Windsor. In 1542, during a visit by King Henry VIII, he was obliged to surrender the manor to the crown. In return he was offered the lands of Tardebigge and the seat of Hewell Grange in modern Worcestershire. His son William (1542-1558) succeeded him as the 2nd Baron.

    Stanwell was mentioned as a hamlet in the Domesday Book of AD 1086, Stanwell is named after St Anne's Well. In 1603, Lord Knyvett was granted the manor of Stanwell. Lord Knyvett was the man who arrested Guy Fawkes in his attempt to blow up the Houses of Parliament. Stanwell's 14th century St Mary's church contains monuments to Lord and Lady Knyvett. In 1838, an unknown species of rose was found in a local garden and given the name of Stanwell Perpetual.


    A village in Worcestershire, England, Tardebigge was once a much greater township including much of modern Redditch. The village is most famous for the Tardebigge locks, a flight of 30 canal locks that raise the Birmingham and Worcester Canal over 220 feet (67 metres) over the Lickey Ridge. It lies in the traditional county of Warwickshire.

    Records of the parish, recorded twice in a will as Anglo-Saxon æt Tærdebicgan, begin in the late 10th Century. Tardebigge was bought by the Dean of Worcester for his Church from King Ethelred the Unready. In the later Dark Ages there were battles fought between Ethelred's son Ironside and the Cnut the Dane.

    The name Tærdebicga (whose dative case is Tærdebicgan) does not appear to have any likely meaning in Anglo-Saxon or Celtic or any other likely known language, and may be a stray survival from whatever aboriginal (perhaps non-Indo-European) language was spoken in England before the Celts came.

    In the 12th century, the parish was granted to Bordesley Abbey, a catholic monastery. For three hundred years the area remained in the Church's possession. In 1538 the Catholic Church was disestablished by King Henry VIII, and the area became the possession of the Crown.

    In a personal deal, Bordesley Abbey passed to Andrew Lord Windsor, and therefore to the stewardship of the Earl of Plymouth, who took a seat Hewell Grange (now a prison) adjacent to modern Tardebigge. The land was gradually managed and sold off by the Earl; it was not until the mid 19th Century that the parish of Tardebigge began to dissolve and the modern boundaries began to appear.
    Hewell Grange is a country house in Tardebigge, Worcestershire, England.

    It is a Grade II listed building; the listing includes some of the gardens.

    The land was originally owned by the Bishop of Bordesley, who lived at nearby Bordesely Abbey. When King Henry VIII abolished catholicism in England, he took control of the land and gave it to Thomas Windsor Hickman.

    Thomas had drawn attention to himself by showing uncommon valour fighting the French. At the age of 15 he commanded a troop of horsemen, impressing Henry. Hewell Grange was no gift however: Henry had visited Thomas' own manor at Stanwell, Windsor and took a liking to the manor. He proposed to swap Stanwell for Hewell Grange and the surrounding lands. Thomas was reported to be unhappy with the deal, but had to accept.

    The ruin of the old hall, June 2005.The estate remained a seat of the Windsor family (who were made Earls of Plymouth) until it was sold to the state in the 20th century. There are several ruins dotted about the estate, which suggest the Windsors have built a succession of grand houses over the past 400 years. The current building was completed in 1894.
