WARBLINGTON COTTAGE HISTORICAL NOTES. Warblington Cottage is a Georgian house and was part of the Warblington Estate. Long before the cottage was built, Warblington Estate belonged to King Harold in 1066. After the Norman Conquest it passed into the hands of William the Conqueror. In the fifteenth century, Warblington Estate was held by Warwick the Kingmaker. In 1514, King Henry VIII gave Warblington Estate to his cousin Margaret Pole (nee Plantagenet), Countess Of Salisbury. It was Margaret who built Warblington Castle (the ruins of which are still visible today).

Margaret was executed in 1541 on account of her opposition to Henry's resolve to divorce Margaret's great friend Catherine of Aragon and marry Anne Boleyn.

Margaret's castle was destroyed by Parliament in 1644 during the English Civil War.

Warblington Cottage was owned by Sir John Ackwood Ominy in 1838. It is believed that the resident of Warblington Cottage was responsible for collecting rent from the farms and cottages that made up Warblington Estate.

The shop opposite Warblington Cottage was the blacksmith's forge. There are photographs of the old forge and the pond that was on the south boundary of Warblington Cottage. The area is still known as Green Pond Corner today.
