History behind the name…
The Earl of Somerset had no children to bequeath Lumley Castle to, therefore the Castle and its land were restored to its rightful owners – in this case Thomas, Sir Ralph’s grandson. Sir Thomas was considered an important figure in court. He was involved in the successful siege of Bamburgh Castle and accompanied Edward IV into battle to oppose the late Queen Margaret’s forces.
