The Parish of Elmley Castle. Victoria County History. Visit British History Online
There really was a medieval castle at Elmley but very little remains above ground today. For a time it was the chief seat of the Beauchamp family.
Elmley Castle was the caput (head manor ) of the Worcestershire Honour (estates) of the Beauchamps, the vast areas of land that the family held, mostly from the bishop for which they owed 15 knights fees.
