  • House & Family History: At its core, Burton Court is a timber-frame house that was later clad and extended in stuccoed brick and ashlar. Its most ancient component is the 14th century Great Hall; later alterations and additions include a mid-19th century cross-wing on the Northeast Facade and a 20th century porch and range by Clough Williams-Ellis. It was at Burton that Henry of Monmouth (later Henry V), stationed his troops to watch the movements of Owen Glendower, the last native Welshman to hold the title prince of Wales.
