History
Burr's Tunbridge Wells
 

In 1664 the old rails, placed round the Wells by Lord Abergavenny, were displaced, and a strong stone wall built round them, instead of this wooden one. This work was executed at the expense of Lord Muskerry, son to the 2nd earl of Clancarty. … He was then lord of the manor, and his arms were placed in the arch of the gateway leading to the springs. This young nobleman renewed the stone pavement within the wall, placed a handsome bason over the main spring, for the better reception of the water, and raised a convenient hall to shelter the dippers from the weather in the hours of attendance upon the company; from which there is also a projection extended to preserve the well from any mixture with rain water.

It is probable that Lord Muskerry thus particularily interested himself in adorning the place this season, in compliment to his royal mistress Queen Katharine, who was sent to Tunbridge Wells for her recovery from the effects of a dangerous fever, which in the previous winter had reduced her to the verge of the grave.

Her majesty was very successful in the use of the water, which greatly raised its reputation, and consequently encouraged the inhabitants to second the generous efforts of their landlord, and to exert their utmost efforts to render the place both beautiful and convenient.
