Croft Castle, Mortimer's Cross, Herefordshire, England


17th great grandfather of the grandchildren of Vernia Swindell Byars (1894-1985)

The castle was involved in the battle of Mortimer's Cross in 1461 when Sir Richard Croft (1427-1509) set forth from it with his soldiers towards the battleground a few miles away. A decsendent of Sir Richard fought for King Charles at Stokesay in the 1640's during the English civil war and, following the eventual Royalist defeat, Croft Castle was slighted to render it incapable of further military service.
