Southampton Tudor House
House, Southampton, built 1535. Its royal visitors. If only the
old house itself could speak what stories it could tell of the doings of
the dozen generations who have dwelt within its walls or have passed
athwart the square beneath its windows. Tradition associates it
doubtfully with two royal visits. Henry VIII is said to have brought
Anne Boleyn beneath its roof. Philip of Spain is supposed to have made it
his lodging during his three days sojourn in Southampton (20th to 23rd
July, 1554) prior to his marriage with Queen Mary at Winchester. It is
impossible at this late day either to confirm or disprove these
legends. There is nothing impossible or even improbable in either of
