Carl Boyer writes, "Pulford is located on the old turnpike road from Chester to Wrexham, five miles southwest of Chester, on flat land on a broook which divides Cheshire from Wales. The site of the old castle is between the church and the boundary, along side the brook; the defences were probalby last used during the rebellion of Owain Glyndwr, when Sir Thomas le Grosvenor was mandated by henry, Prince of Wales, on 11 jan 4 Hen IV (1404) to "lasten to his possessions at Pulford, Churchenheth, and elsewhere on the marches of Wales, on the occasion of war gainst the king and kingdom of England." [1]


"Pulford, which contained the townships of Pulford and Pulton, was divided, at the time of the Domesday survey in 1086, unequally between the secular canons of St. Werbaugh, the former possessors, and Hugh Fitz Osberne, the Norman grantee, who had ejected the Saxon proprietors. Pulford was then divided between the Ormesbees, the probable suceesors to the seculars, and the Pulfords, who may have been descendants of Hugh Fitz Osberne, who was probably a son of Osberne Fitz Tezzon, the ancestor of the Boydells. Both the Pulfords and the Eatons (descendants of the Pulfords) adopted the Boydell coat with variations in the colors. [1]
