The Granville family lived at Stowe House from 1580. The original house was demolished in 1670, eleven years after the death of Sir Richard Grenville. Sir Richard had been on the Parliamentarian side during the Civil War, but in 1644 he switched allegiances and became a Royalist. History remembers him as an exceptionally cruel and callous soldier, who would often starve his prisoners to death.

The house seen here was built in 1680 but was demolished in the early 1800s to make way for a farm house.
