Summary : Hampton Court is a semi-fortified courtyard house, possibly built by Sir Rowland Lenthall in circa 1435. It consisted of a central gatehouse in the north range, a great hall in the south and service wings east and west, around a courtyard. The house was remodelled in the late 17th, early 18th and late 18th centuries. Extensive alterations were carried out between 1835 and 1856. A formal Dutch-style garden was laid out in he late 17th century by George London. In circa 1790 a large double-walled garden was created to the north-west of the Court under advice from Humphrey Repton. A conservatory designed by Joseph Paxton was added in 1846 to the south side of the Court.

Hampton Court. The house, then called Hampton Richard, was presumably built by Sir Roland Lenthall, who had a licence to crenellate in 1434 (a). It was modernised in the early 18th c and 'altered and restored' in the first half of the 19th c. The quadrangular plan and much of the 15th century walling have been preserved. The gatehouse, chapel and porch are the least altered parts. The east, south and west fronts have no ancient features. Grade I. (2-3)

SO 5205 5241 Hampton Court is as described by RCHM. See GP.Published survey 25" correct. (4)

Hampton Court. House, c.1427-36. Altered early 18thc by Colen Campbell for Lord Coningsby, with remodelling of S. front and additions to the S.E. and S.W. Further remodelling, including partial refenestration and numerous additions, with restoration, undertaken in early 19thc by Sir Jeffrey Wyatville for Richard Arkwright. 18th and 19thc illustrations suggest that the building may have a further complicated architectural history.
