Samuel & Nathaniel Buck, Views of  Castles & Abbeys in England, 1726-1739

From the historic work of the by the brothers, Samuel and Nathaniel Buck, Views of Ruins of Castles & Abbeys in England, 1726-1739. Samuel and Nathaniel Buck were the most important topographical artists of the 18th century, creating a record of over 500 ancient monuments & towns in England and Wales. Many of these monuments had been devastated during the course of the Reformation, particularly during the period when Oliver Cromwell ruled England as "Lord Protector." The Bucks Views, as they have become known, provide an invaluable record of these magnificent buildings, some of which have seen further deterioration during the 275 years that have since passed. This project was initially published over three decades from the 1720s. Having achieved great success with his publications of town prospects, Samuel Buck announced in November 1726 ".his intention of systematically recording ruins throughout England. The castles, religious foundations, and other remains of antiquity throughout the kingdom, he argued, were in a lamentable condition. He would 'rescue the mangled remains' of 'these aged & venerable edifices from the inexorable jaws of time' (S. Buck, 'Proposals for the publication of . twenty-four views of castles . in the counties of Lincoln and Nottingham', 1 Nov 1726, copy in priv. coll.), by visiting and recording them. In the summer of 1727 Nathaniel accompanied Samuel on a 'peregrination' of Lancashire, Cheshire, and Derbyshire. In 1728 the brothers announced their plan to undertake the remaining counties of northern England, but they discovered enough recordable ruins in Durham and Northumberland for the following year's set of twenty-four, and Cumberland and Westmorland had to wait. In 1729-31 they took their sketch-boards to the midlands, between 1732 and 1736 they covered the counties in the south of England and also in Monmouthshire, in 1737 they covered the counties of East Anglia, and in 1738 they completed England by dealing with Cumberland and Westmorland. Finally they produced sets for Wales, apparently touring the counties of Wales in 1739-41. With the publication in 1742 of Anglesey, Caernarvonshire, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Merioneth, Montgomeryshire, and Radnor, the antiquities project was completed. This project constituted only half of the Buck brothers' enterprise. From 1728 they had worked on a parallel project: producing and publishing a series of long prospects of English and Welsh 'Cities, Sea-ports, and Capital Towns' Samuel & Nathaniel Buck"Buck's Views" as they were called are 428 views of the ruins of all noted abbeys, castles, together with four views of seats and eighty-three large general views of the chief cities and towns of England and Wales. Published between 1724-38 on Hand-Made Laid and often Watermarked Paper. They were reprinted in the Victorian time and later on a polished mechanically made paper






The North West Prospect of the City of Gloucester
  Text below image gives a description of the city of Gloucester, as well as a key to the prospect. In 1727, Samuel Buck and his brother Nathaniel commenced sketching and engraving a series of architectural remains of England and Wales. The series included 83 large prospects of the 70 principal towns in England and Wales. It took the Buck brothers 28 years to complete their venture and during this time some changes to their style occured. The brothers began to use a less formal style in their later engravings by including figures and more subtle landscapes in the foreground. In 1774, Robert Sayer obtained the plates, added page numbers to them and published them as Buck's Antiquities.

It was first established at Barlings Grange but was soon moved to its present site.By the mid-14th century the canons are known to have been in considerable financial trouble and even by 1412 when there were twenty-seven in residence, they were maintained with difficulty due to continued poverty and debt. By 1497 the situation had improved with the abbot praised for his administration and the monastery remarked to be in a good state. In 1537, during the Dissolution of the Monasteries, the abbey became involved in the uprisings against this act and the abbot, Matthew Mackarel, and six of the canons were subsequently executed. The abbey was closed and the remainder of the canons expelled with little compensation due to the activities of their condemned brethren, with the property then passing to the Duke of Suffolk.

However, in October 1546 they were granted in fee to Richard Pexsall, kings servant. Of the buildings themselves, the prior's lodging was between the guest hall and the church. Prior Thomas Walshe had rebuilt it in 1490 and it was pulled down in the early part of the 19th century. Worse was yet to come when in 1930 the western range of the cloister, which included the guest house and prior's lodging was totally removed along with the tithe barn to St. Donat's castle in Glamorgan by William Randolph Hearst. John Aubrey had described the priory as "very well built, with good strong ribs" and having a cellar, "the stateliest in Wiltshire". However, in 1666 he commented that, "the very fundations of this fair church are now, 1666, digged up."14th century undercrofts and a tower. . . the remains were left by Hearst in numbered boxes in storage in the USA . . they are still there . . x 2

Eynsham Abbey was a Benedictine monastery in Eynsham, Oxfordshire in England. King Aethelred allowed Aethelmar to found the abbey in 1005 . After the Norman Conquest the abbey was reopened in 1086. The abbey flourished until the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1538. Anthony Kitchin was the last abbot. Some of the buildings were wrecked to hinder the return of the monks. The Earl of Derby acquired the abbey buildings, the stones of which were subsequently used to build houses in the village

THE PRIORY OF ULVERSCROFTThe priory of St. Mary at Ulverscroft was founded by Robert, Earl of Leicester,who gave the site on which the house was built. A papal document of 1174, in which the first mention of the monastery occurs, states that Ranulph, Earl of Chester, gave 30 acres in Charnwood Forest to the priory, and it must therefore have been founded before the death of Earl Ranulph de Gernon in 1153. The house was described as a hermitage about 1220, but as early as 1174 the Pope ordered the Augustinian rule to be observed there. Before 1174 the priory obtained the church of Stanford on Soar (Notts.). The advowson of Stanford was a source of dispute in the 13th century, and the priory had lost it by 1280. In 1323 William de Ferrers had licence to alienate in mortmain to Ulverscroft 70 acres of waste land at Groby, and the advowson of the church of Syston (Leics.). Licence was granted in 1361 for the appropriation of Syston. The advowson of Bunny (Notts.) was granted to the priory in 1345 by Thomas de Ferrers.
About 1220 the priory contained only three brothers, all priests, but this number was later exceeded. There were eight canons in the house in 1438, when a visitation by Bishop Alnwick revealed an unsatisfactory state of affairs. There were many complaints about the prior's bad management of the monastery's concerns, and it was also said that he was lax in the maintenance of religious discipline. The sub-prior was said to have once been absent from the house for twenty years, and to have been readmitted without the knowledge of the convent. The prior accused the canons of wandering outside the priory, and of possessing private property. Bishop Alnwick provided that the prior should retain control of the priory until the next Michaelmas, when it would be decided whether he should resign, or be assisted by a coadjutor. In fact the prior resigned in 1439.

Lewes Priory (St. Pancras Priory, Lewes) was a Cluniac priory established in the valley of the river Ouse in the eleventh century, between 1078 and 1082. It was founded by William de Warenne, 1st Earl of Surrey, lord of the Rape of Lewes, and his wife Gundrada, who had come to England from Normandy with William the Conqueror. The first prior was Lanzo, who came with a few other from Cluny.The priory became wealthy and, at the time of its demolition under the dissolution of the monasteries in November 1537, it owned about 20,000 acres of land in the surrounding county of Sussex alone. However, there were only 24 monks at this time, reduced from approximately 100 during the period from 1100-1300.

There were several religious houses in New Winchelsea, most notably, the monastery of the Grey Friars (Franciscans). The Grey Friars moved from Old Winchelsea, where they had been since 1252. Their monastery appears to have been badly damaged by the storms that hit Old Winchelsea and, in 1284, they were granted a 4-acre site by John Bone of Wickham to allow them to relocate. The new monastery therefore predated the Crown's acquisition of land for New Winchelsea and the irregular shape of the plot disrupted the symmetry of news town's the quarters. The monastery was dissolved in 1538 and most of the buildings were demolished to provide stone for Camber Castle. The site was sold off by the Crown in 1545. The surviving buildings were converted into a private residence but this was demolished in 1819 to make way for the current house. All that remains of the monastery, apart from its buried foundations, is part of the monastery church. This is a spectacular ruin. Pevsner thought it one of the most impressive Franciscan remains in England. The walls of the choir stand to almost their original height and the arch that connected with the nave remains in place. There is a small tower to one side of the arch, containing stairs thought to lead to the now missing dormitory. This was used as a watchtower by customs officers in the early 19th century.

The monastery of the Black Friars (Dominicans) was located in what is now Pipewell Field on the opposite side of the A259 to the Ferry or Pipewell Gate. At the foundation of New Winchelsea, the barons asked that the only religious house in the town should be the Grey Friars. The Black Friars (a preaching order later associated with the Inquisition) were not popular and there are records of fights between monks and townsfolk. The Black Friars did not get into the town until Edward II granted them a site in 1318, but they had to be content with Kings Green at the southern end by the New Gate. This proved unsatisfactory as few people came to visit the monastery or give alms. In 1339, the Black Friars moved to a new site on reclaimed marshland on the north side of the settlement of Iham, outside the town walls. In 1342, the monks complained to the Pope that the site was at risk of flooding. He ordered the Bishop of Chichester to move them into the town. This was only achieved in 1357, when Edward III needed the support of the Pope for his invasion of France, and a site by the Ferry Gate was found. However, by the time of the Dissolution in 1538, the monastery was in ruins. As with the Grey Friars monastery, its stone was removed to help build Camber Castle. from http://www.winchelsea.net/visiting/winchelsea_history_pt11.htm
