Notes:

This small woodcut shows Oxford Castle as it might have been shortly after it was built.

The Castle of Oxford was built in the Year 1071 by Robert Doyley or D’oilli, a faithfull Attendant on King William the Conqueror, and whom that Monarch rewarded with great possessions in this Country for his Attachment and Services. That it was a place of considerable Strength is evident, not only from the Accounts of all Historians, but also from those few Remains of it which are still extant.” (p. 129)
