Oatlands

Oatlands is a district in Surrey near Weybridge[?], which in Tudor and Stuart[?] times was the location of a royal palace. Henry VIII acquired the house in 1538, and rebuilt it for Anne of Cleves. It subsequently became the residence, at various times, of Elizabeth I, James I and Charles I, who was later imprisoned here by the army in 1647.
