About Catherine Paul

The following extract is taken from Gardner's Directory 1852

The lineal descendants of Sir William (the Misses Stapleton, aunts of the baroness Le Despencer, and the Hon. and Rev. Sir Francis Jervis Stapleton, bart.), are the present owners.

The noble family of Grey built an extensive baronial residence here (called Grey's Court), some parts of which still remain attached to the present edifice. The ancient mansion appears to have consisted of two quadrangles. The present building, the seat of the Misses Stapleton, is of the Elizabethean period. It is delightfully situated about 3 miles west from Henley, in the midst of a beautiful and very picturesque park, from many parts of which the views are most enchanting. The park is embellished by noble forest trees, and well stocked with deer. The halls and several rooms in the mansion contain portraits of the Fane's and Westmoreland's, of which family the late lady Stapleton (mother of the Misses Stapleton), was a member; and in the windows are some armorial bearings in stained glass.

This parish is about six miles from east to west, but there is no great assemblage of houses that may be called a village. Grey's Green is situated about 2.5 miles west from Henley. The view from the top of this green is magnificent.
