Notes

Site of a moat. About the beginning of the reign of Edward I, William de Harcourt granted to Henry de Braunteson and his heirs, that part of his capital court or mansion "by the wall which then extended to an oak standing before the door of the old grange". It is not improbable that the moat to the west of Bushwood Hall marks the site of this old grange. The water-filled moat is in a valley, fed by a stream on the north side, and is 60.0 m square overall. The arms have an average width of 13.0 m and the average height of the island above water level is 1.5 m.
