The History of Nailsea Court ‘The House that saved England’ A former Bishop of Bath and Wells, Bishop Kennion, once described Nailsea Court as “The house that saved England”. Richard Perceval, renegade son of a former owner who was born at Nailsea Court and who crowned wild, extravagant ways by marrying a gypsy and was disowned by his father, redeemed himself. He deciphered Spanish Documents that gave Queen Elizabeth timely intelligence of the Spanish Armada invasion plans. The Queen was so grateful that she made him a Secret Remembrance and gave him a pension of 800 marks a year for the rest of his life. In 1574 Queen Elizabeth visited Bristol and tradition says that she visited Nailsea Court whilst on her journey.
