1st Viscount of Powerscourt

Wingfield Family TreeIn 1603 a new era began at Powerscourt, when Richard Wingfield was granted Powerscourt Castle and its 40,000 acre estate as a reward for his military achievements by Queen Elizabeth.

Wingfields (lived at Powerscourt for 350 years)

The story goes that Richard Wingfield visited Queen Elizabeth after battle to pay his respects. The Queen said to him: “Well Sir Richard, what is to be your reward?” He bowed, and said “The scarf that Your Majesty wears will be sufficient reward for me.” Upon which the Queen placed the scarf over his shoulder. In addition to the scarf, Richard was knighted, appointed ‘Marshal of Ireland’ and received Powerscourt Estate as his reward. His descendants were to remain at Powerscourt for over 350 years.
