Excerpt from Ancient Castles of England and Wales, Vol. 1 of 2: Engraved by William Woolnoth, From Original Drawings, With Historical Descriptions

When Richard I. Undertook his expedition to the Holy Land, in 1189, he gave the charge of the Tower to the Chancellor, William Long champs, Bishop of Ely, whom he had appointed Governor of the King dom in his absence, in conjunction with Hugh Pudsey, Bishop of Dur ham. This ambitious prelate having strengthened the fortifications of the Tower, and surrounded it with a deep ditch, garrisoned it with his own retainers, and, after he had been deposed from the Regency by a Great Council of the nation, made his terms of peace from its walls.

It appears, from various notices in coeval records, examined by Mr. Bayley, that King John frequently kept his court in the Tower 5 and that considerable additions were made to its fortifications during his reign. At the commencement Of hostilities between him and the Barons, they took possession Of the City, and laid siege to the Tower; but, although there were very few within to defend it, it held out until the ratification of Magna Charta; when, in pursuance of certain stipulations with the Barons, it was delivered in trust, for a time, to the Archbishop of Canterbury. The disturbances, however, continued, and this import ant trust remained in the hands of the Archbishop, until the arrival of the French in the following year, when it was given up to the Dauphin 5 and when that Prince abandoned his designs upon the English crown, he surrendered the Tower, with other fortresses, to Henry the Third.
