Sedbury Park

James Darcy the elder (1617-1673), stud master to King Charles II, acquired Sedbury Park, near Richmond, Yorkshire, from Sir Marmaduke Wyvill (who had acquired it from the Gascoigne family), either by purchase or through his marriage to Sir Marmaduke's daughter Isabel (sources vary). After the death of James Darcy the elder in 1673 Sedbury Park passed on to his son James Darcy the younger (1650-1731), later 1st Baron Darcy of Navan, in Ireland. Sedbury House itself no longer exists and the stables have been converted to offices. Sedbury was once home to such legendary horses as the Darcy Yellow Turk, the Darcy White Turk and at least some of the famous "Royal Mares".
