The History of Oxford Castle
Built in 1071 by Robert d’Oilly, Oxford Castle was in existence as a prison up until as recently as 1996. The last public hanging at the prison was in 1863 and the last hanging within the prison walls was in 1952. It has so much history that it would take forever to relay this to you here. Legend talks of the ‘Oxford Castle Curse, described as the Black Assize of 1577 when a curse was placed on the Court, the Jury and the City by Rowland Jenke after his ears were cut off. Hundreds of people died mysteriously within the space of a few weeks and sinister human remains were recently discovered within the Well Chamber which has been dated back to the late 16th Century. Although there are no absolute conclusions it is thought that they could belong to the victims of Rolwland Jenke’s Curse.
Oxford Castle was built by the Norman baron Robert D’Oyly the elder from 1071 D’Oyly had arrived in England with William I in the Norman Conquest of England in 1066 and William the Conqueror granted him extensive lands in Oxfordshire. Oxford had been stormed in the invasion with considerable damage, and William directed D’Oyly to build a castle to dominate the town. In due course D’Oyly became the foremost landowner in Oxfordshire and was confirmed with a hereditary royal constableship for Oxford Castle. D’Oyly positioned his castle to the west side of the town, using the natural protection of a stream of the River Thames on the far side of the castle, now called Castle Mill Stream, and diverting the stream to produce a moat.
There has been debate as to whether there was an earlier English fortification on the site, but whilst there is archaeological evidence of earlier Anglo-Saxon habitation there is no conclusive evidence of fortification. Oxford Castle was clearly an “urban castle” but it remains uncertain whether local buildings had to be demolished to make room for it.
