History of Ripley Castle
Ripley Castle is a beautiful Grade I listed fourteenth-century country house located in Ripley, North Yorkshire, three miles north of Harrogate. The Ingleby family acquired the medieval manor house as a dowry after Sir Thomas Ingleby married Edelin Twenge in 1308/9. The castle undertook a major rebuild between 1783 and 1786 under guidance from Sir John Ingleby. His son rebuilt the surrounding village of Ripley and endowed it with a huge Hotel de Ville too.
In 2009, the Ingleby family celebrated a remarkable seven hundred years at Ripley Castle. All the documents, letters and deeds that tend to get lost or thrown away with every move have survived, highlighting a unique story intertwined with plagues, civil wars, attempted regicide, inept heirs, and religious/ political conspiracies. It’s a true historic wonder!
