    ---
    Barton Court was the home of the great Reade family. They were keen Royalists and, during the Civil War, King Charles I was entertained at their home on a number of occasions by Sir Thomas Reade. It was from here that the King said goodbye to Queen Henrietta Maria for the last time, before her journey to Exeter and France in April 1644. After Abingdon fell to the Roundheads, Sir Thomas? grandson, Compton, had to lead the defence of their house until it "was burnt over his head", probably in March 1646. Barton was was left in ruins and the Reades did not return. Timbers from the house featuring Parliamentary bullet holes were reused in the nearby Barton Court Farm and the Bowyer family later built a replacement mansion that was pulled down in the 1970s.
