"FULBROOKE, a parish in the Snitterfield division of the hundred of Barlichway, county Warwick, 4 miles N.E. of Stratford-on-Avon. It includes Hampton-on-the-Hill, and the hamlet of Lower Norton. A castle formerly stood here, built by John, Duke of Bedford, son of Henry IV., who formed the park. The Beauchamp family afterwards had possession of the estate, which came from them to the Comptons, who sold it to the Lucys of Charlecote. Of this last-named family was Sir Thomas Lucy, who, in 1585, is said to have prosecuted Shakespeare for stealing deer in these grounds. The park has long since been disafforested. The living is a rectory annexed to the perpetual curacy of Sherbourne. There is no church."
