Hay On Wye CastleHay on Wye Castle, 1066 to 1298 Hay on Wye opens up new possibilities for the early foundation of this castle and the Fitz Osbern penetration of South-East Wales in the summer of 1070 when he defeated three Welsh kings. The history is then continued through the lordships of the Neufmarchés, which was confirmed at the battle of Brecon in 1093, and also the Gloucester families until 1165 when the district passed into the hands of the Braoses. The very early origins of the castle are examined and compared with that of the little known motte by the church, which has always wrongly been ascribed as the first castle of Hay on Wye. In 1230 the castle passed to the Bohuns and the local history, including the battle near Hay in 1231, is continued through the Mortimer wars of the 1260's and the battle at Brecon in 1266 down to the death of Earl Humphrey Bohun in 1298.
