The Hedges family bought Wallingford Castle from the Crown in 1817, and in 1837 John Allnat Hedges built a gothic-style house on the site. John Kirby Hedges, a JP, wrote a very detailed two-volume history of Wallingford. The Hedges Solicitors firm, based in Wallingford, had a Hedges family member as a senior partner from 1789 until 1982.

Henry II (1132-1189)

Henry, Duke of Anjou was the son of Empress Matilda, and fought to keep Wallingford Castle in the hands of her supporters, before agreeing a deal with King Stephen (known as the Treaty of Wallingford) that would allow him to suceed to the throne of Stephen's death. In gratitude to Wallingford for supporting his cause, he gave the town its charter in 1155.

Henry IV (1367 –1413)

King of England and France and Lord of Ireland from 1399 to 1413. He was born at Bolingbroke Castle in Lincolnshire, hence the other name by which he was known, "Henry (of) Bolingbroke". His father, John of Gaunt, was the third and oldest surviving son of Edward III. He also had four half-siblings by Katherine Swynford, including John Beaufort, his father's longtime mistress and eventual third wife. During 1399, Henry Bolingbroke began a military campaign while Richard II was in Ireland, seized power and imprisoned him on his return, and became king. He took control of Wallingford Castle during this time, passing it to Thomas Chaucer. Amongst Henry’s sons was the future Henry V.

Henry of Almain (1235–1271)

Henry of Almain, so called because of his father's German connections, was the son of Richard of Cornwall, King of the Romans. As a nephew of both Henry III and Simon de Montfort he wavered between the two at the beginning of the Barons' War, but finally took the royalist side and was among the prisoners taken by Montfort at Lewes (1264), being held at Wallingford Castle and later released. Henry later imprisoned Robert de Ferrers at Wallingford Castle on what were widely regarded to be false charges.

Thomas Howard, 1st Earl of Berkshire (1587–1669)

Thomas was the second son of Thomas Howard, 1st Earl of Suffolk and Catherine Knyvet. He was born in Saffron Walden, Essex. He became Member of Parliament for Wiltshire in 1614. In 1621 he was appointed castellan of Wallingford. He was created Baron Howard of Charlton, Wiltshire and in 1625 he became Earl of Berkshire.

Hubert de Burgh (c1165-1243)

Hubert de Burgh was Earl of Kent, Justiciar of England and Ireland, and held much influence while John and Henry III were kings. He was King John's chamberlain when John became king in 1199, and was given many castles, including Wallingford in 1202. When John captured his nephew Arthur of Brittany, niece Eleanor and their allies in 1202, de Burgh was made their jailor. According to William Shakespeare’s play "King John" the king ordered de Burgh to blind Arthur, but de Burgh refused, but this story is not widely believed. Henry III made de Burgh Earl of Kent, but he was later imprisoned.

William Hucks (-1740)

Represented Wallingford in Parliament on several occasions , despite his election being challenged on grounds of bribery in 1715, and was brewer to King George I. He was also a lessee of the castle, and had a farmhouse on the site of the former priory. He lived at Calleva House on the High Street. In 1739 he was robbed by Dick Turpin.

Hugh I de Audley (c.1250-c1336)

He was imprisoned in Wallingford Castle in 1322 with Maurice de Berkeley by Edward II for opposing the Despensers, but escaped in 1323. He was the father of Hugh de Audley, who married Margaret de Clare, widow of Piers Gaveston, and it is believed this meant he avoided the fate of other rebels.
