Kinniard Castle, Owston (Ferry), Lincolnshire, England

Kinniard Castle, Owston (Ferry), Lincolnshire, England



 


Notes: Kinniard Castle was erected by the Lord of the Fee*, shortly after the 1066 conquest. Probably mainly of wood as all the early castles were. According to Stonehouse in the 20th year of King Henry II reign in 1172 (actually 1174 was the 20th year) it was in a dilapidated condition. It was repaired by Roger de Mowbray to support Prince Henry who was in conflict with his father Henry II. The castle was destroyed in the following year along with Roger's other castles on the order of Henry II as part of his policy of controlling his barons. Henry did not trust Roger, later banishing him to either Venice or the Holy Land.



* The Fee - Land or revenue-producing property granted by a lord in return for a vassal's service. A Vassal is a person who owes allegiance and service to a feudal lord
