How far back the Origin of the earlier buildings should be placed is uncertain, in the absence of historical record, or even, as it would seem, of reliable mention Of the castle at all prior to the Sixteenth century; and yet, circumstances seem to point to the certainty ofa considerable period of time having elapsed between the erection of the original structure and the rebuilding of certain portions of it in later years. No architectural detail, either, can be found in connection with what remains Of the early work to afford a clue to its age therefore, it is only by comparing such remains as there are, and the plan of the whole that may with reasonable certainty be reconstructed from them, with buildings similar in plan and character that exist elsewhere and have a history, that the date Of its erection may be approximately arrived at.
