About William Martin, Knight, of Athelhampton

William Martyn

Sir William Martyn of Athelhampton, near Dorchester, Dorset (c. 1446 – 14 January 1503).

Sir William Martyn, Lord Mayor of London in 1492, built the current Great Hall of Athelhampton in or around 1485. He also received licence to enclose 160 acres (647,000 m²) of deer park and to fortify his manor. Effigies of him and his family can be seen at nearby Piddletown Church.


Sir William's pet ape is said to haunt the Great Hall for, after his master's death, he wandered the house looking for his master. (1)
