Bulstrode: Splendour and Scandals of a Buckinghamshire Mansion – D J Kelly



The beautiful Buckinghamshire estate of Bulstrode, once a hilltop refuge for early man, has been home to medieval Knights Templar; cruel and corrupt judges; blue bloods and blue stockings; a nobleman who twice served as British Prime Minister; ancestors of a US President’s wife; the richest woman in England; the most beautiful woman in England; the most scandalous woman in England, and the illegitimate daughter of an earl and a gypsy girl who inspired George Bernard Shaw and Hollywood.
