The Writ

Allington Stronghold is a stronghold in Kent. Before the stronghold was bilt þere was an older, eadless stronghold in the same spot bilt amid þe Anarcky, a borougherwye in England fought between Cween Matilda, þe daughter and chosen erfnimmer of Henry I, and Steffen of Blois. As it had no ead from the king, þiss older stronghold was torn dune. Allington Stronghold itself had its start as a huse, and in þe þirteenþ yearhundred þe owner was given ead to begin bulwarking his home. More and more was eked to þe hold over many years until it became a stronghold.

Þe Wyatt hird held þe stronghold for a while. In 1492 Henry Wyatt, one of Henry VII's men, got þe stronghold. In þiss time many neesers came by, yinning Henry VII, Henry VIII, Cardinal Wolsey, and Caþerine Parr. Henry Wyatt's son, Tomas Wyatt þe Elder, held þe stronghold next. Tomas Wyatt þe Elder is þe man said to have brought þe craft of sonnet making to England. Þe next owner was his son, Tomas Wyatt þe Younger, who fant to rise against Cween Bloody Mary. Þe uprising trucked and þe þrone naked þe Wyatt hird of hir stronghold and hir oþer holdings. Þose Wyatts who were not killed after þe uprising are said to have left for Americk afterwards.

In þe sixteen-fifties John Astley, þe Master of þe Jewel Offise to Elizabeþ I (Bloody Mary's sister), got þe stronghold. A big deal of þe stronghold burned dune in a fire soon after. Some time later, þe Best hird came to live on þe grunds. Þe Bests were Caþolicks, and a preest hole was put in for hir sake, as Caþolick preests at þe time were hunted. In þe seventeen-twenties Robert Marsham bought þe stronghold. He was an afterbear of þe Wyatts, but he did not take up þe stronghold as his home. Þe stronghold caught fire again in þe early nineteenþ yearhundred.

In eighteen-five-and-ninety, Dudley Falke took over care of þe stronghold and began beeting it. It was þen sold to William Martin Conway, who kept up þe beeting for over þirty years. When William Conway died, his daughter Agnes got þe stronghold, but when she died her husband sold it to þe Order of Carmelites.
