"SAWSTON, (Cambridgeshire) at the bottom of Gogmagog-Hills, S. E. of Cambridge, was the seat of Sir John Huddleston; to which Q. Mary I. came, and rode from hence in disguise behind his servant to Framlingham-Castle, where she first claimed the crown; and when she had obtained it, made Sir John her privy-counseller, and gave him the greatest part of Cambridge- Castle."
