House & Family History
Built of brick and 3 stories tall, Bramshill is one of the largest Jacobean houses in England. It was built by Lord Zouche, 1605-12, and purchased in 1700 John Cope. The staircase was brought to Bramshill from Eversley Manor House and is probably mid-17th century. Bramshill is famous as a supposedly much haunted house.
