Excerpt from Romance of Ashby-De-La-Zouch Castle
Throughout their long proprietorship of their palace fortress, the earls dispensed hospitality with a princely profusion. Illustrious Visitors have found entertainment in their splendid halls, but no earl ever welcomed a traitor through the castle's portals. Prisoners have languished in its chambers, but they were enemies of the King.
From the hour the first baron entered leading the Lady Catherine by the hand, to the sad day when Henry Hastin s, with gloomy mien, delivered the keys to Colone Needham, its lords have held their stronghold for the King.
