Malton is a historic market town situated just north of the river Derwent in North Yorkshire. The building remains date back to 71AD when a Roman auxiliary Fort called Deventio was built on the land and a large civilian settlement developed in the south of the river. The Old Lodge Hotel is situated west of these remains, known locally as ‘Orchard Fields’ on land that was part of Malton Castle. Malton Castle was a wooden castle built in 1138 after the Norman invasion as a temporary measure to occupy the land they had captured and then rebuilt in stone by Eustace De Vescy. It was an important castle in its days and welcomed Richard the Lionheart in 1189, visited by Edward II in 1307 and by Robert the Bruce in 1322 however shortly after the great house of De Vescy fell to ruin along with the castle.Upon Lord William Eure receiving his title in 1544 he inherited the land. The Eure family had a long history with the area; William’s son Ralph, born in 1510, defended Scarborough Castle against the Pilgrimage of Grace in 1536 and became Warden of the East Marches. He was also involved in the burning of Edinburgh in 1544, famously commemorated in Sir Walter Scott’s poem ‘Lord Eurie’.In 1569 Ralph, 3rd Lord Eure built a new house on the site where the castle stood, now known as ‘Castle Gardens’. The house was then rebuilt in a much grander style in 1602...
