Corse Lawn is situated 7 miles north of Gloucester and about the same distance south-west of Tewkesbury and is just in the county of Herefordshire. The name derives from the Old English (although it may have Celtic roots), Corse= marsh or bog; Lawn = chase or heath. The area was once well wooded with glades and clearings and was part of the great estate of the monastic church at Deerhurst, it was then passed to the new Abbey of Westminster; the Earls of Gloucester held the hunting rights. The manor appears to have been a sub-manor of Westminster Abbey in 1281 it was confirmed to Gilbert of Corse, a forester, but is not subsequently recorded again until the end of the Middle-Ages, but it may have been the home of William Butler between 1390 & 1450. The woodlands were gradually cleared so that by 1478 the area was known as Corse Lawn and and by 1779 the trees had been cleared and it was a wide, open, undrained common being used for the summer grazing sheep. After enclosure, in 1796, much of the land was ploughed and yielded large crops of cereals and by 1864 two of the larger farms were arable with wheat, barley, beans and peas along with cider and perry fruit being grown. However, by 1901 three-quarters of the farm land was permanent grass. The former manor house was known as Course Court in the 16th century and was occupied by the Lords of the Manor in the 16th and early 17th century, it was enlarged in the 19th century but retained some stone mullions and transoms and other features from an earlier house. It is now the Corse Lawn House Hotel.
