    In 1564 Queen Elizabeth I granted Copped Hall to her close friend Sir Thomas Heneage. Almost immediately he started to rebuild the mansion ? incorporating part of the old house in the south west corner. The building was complete by 1568 when Queen Elizabeth came to stay.
    Sir Thomas Heneage occupied high office ? including Vice-Chamberlain of the Royal Household.
    In 1594, after his wife's death, he married the Countess of Southampton. Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer's Nights Dream' was almost certainly written for their wedding celebrations and was first performed at Copped Hall in the long gallery after the wedding ceremony in London.
