The Chronicle records several battles of Ceawlin's between the years 556 and 592, including the first record of a battle between different groups of Anglo-Saxons, and indicates that under Ceawlin Wessex acquired significant territory, some of which was later to be lost to other Anglo-Saxon kingdoms. Ceawlin is also named as one of the eight "bretwaldas", a title given in the Chronicle to eight rulers who had overlordship over southern Britain, although the extent of Ceawlin's control is not known. Ceawlin died in 593, having been deposed the year before, possibly by his successor, Ceol.

87......Simon b 1100 Wattlesborough, Shropshire d aft 1155 Caus Castle



Caus Castle, Shropshire, Pen and wash by William Williams in 18th century.

Now all but disappeared into earthworks which may be of Iron age origin, by the 13th century, Caus Castle was one of the best defensive sites along the Welsh Marches. The building work of 1263 by Thomas Corbet was funded by Henry III with a grant of 50 marks and included adding D-shaped towers to the curtain wall of 1198, these towers survive to some extent on the site. On the death of Beatrice Corbet in 1347 Caus passed to the Earl of Stafford
Caus was garrisoned by the Griffith ap Ieuan ap Madoc ap Gwenwys against the rebellion of the Welsh Prince Owain Glyn Dwr in the 1400's, but following calls from the Welsh he changed sides and supported Glyndwr. As a result his family lands and role at Caus Castle were forfeited in 1404, only to be restored by Henry V in 1419 after his sons Ieuan ap Griffith and Sir Griffith Vaughan captured the outlaw John Oldcastle for Lord Charlton of Powis.
Prior to the main conflict in the Wars of the Roses, in 1443 Sir Griffith Vaughan (or Gruffydd Fychan), Ieuan ap Griffith and their tenants murdered Sir Christopher Talbot, son of John Talbot first Earl of Shrewsbury and champion jouster of England, at Caus Castle for which their family lands were again forfeited, this time to Henry VI.
In 1521 Caus Castle is described as being in decay and the Earl of Stafford and his family rarely used it at this time. After an episode of the Black Death Caus borough followed it into decay and the last mention of a tenanted house there was in 1614.
A Parliamentarian news-sheet dated 27th August 1645 lists the royalist garrisons of castles in Shropshire and Caus Castle is listed as one of them. It is likely that Caus Castle was destroyed at this time to prevent it from being used as a defensive base by the Royalists.
