Hinton St George, Somerset in 1669 from Count L. Magalotti, Travels of Cosmo the Third, Grand Duke of Tuscany, through England during the Reign of King Charles the Second 1669 (1821).

For centuries Hinton St George was the home of the Poulett family, who acquired the manor by marriage in the 15th century. The medieval manor house was rebuilt in the early 16th century by Sir Amias Poulett. Improvements were made in the mid 17th century by the 1st and 2nd Lords Poulett. Today the house is in divided ownership.
