    By 1283, the Russell Family were the principal landowners (at Strensham), and remained so for some four hundred years. There are many brasses and monuments to the family inside the Church. In 1388, Sir John Russell was granted a license to crenelate a mansion house at Strensham, this almost certainly related to Strensham Castle, the moated site to the west which probably survived until the English Civil war when it is believed have been destroyed. About this time, the Russells moved their residence to Strensham Court at Over Strensham (now Upper Strensham) to the south, and it is around this that the current settlement is situated.
    James purchased Strensham Manor from Godfrey de Auno (1299), and died probably 1312.(Although the family were at Strensham before then.)
