Framlingham History

Framlingham castle dates from the late 12th-century and was surrounded by parkland and estates as it was once at the centre of a vast network of power and influence. Owners of the castle ranged from the Earls and Dukes of Norfolk, the supreme magnates in East Anglia to Margaret Brotherton whom, by 1372, was the richest women in the country.

Another owner of the castle was Mary Tudor, the daughter of Henry VIII first wife Catherine of Aragon and it was instrumental in her strategy against John Dudley to assume the throne in 1553.

Not an owner, yet, is the prodigal son of Framlingham, songster extraordinaire Mr Ed Sheeran. Ed owns a few properties in the area and helps out with local charities… and Ipswich Town FC;)
