POOL PARK, once the home of the Salusbury family, one of whom was William Salusbury of Bachymdyd passed to Sir Walter Bagot through marriage. It was rebuilt in the Elizabethan style by the Bagot family in 1828 and is situated off the Clawddwydd road out of Ruthin in an area of outstanding natural beauty. A hundred later the estate of some 17,500 acres was split and put up for sale. One of the main attractions of the house is the hallway from which springs a richly carved noble staircase. An interesting pillow of Stonework was erected on nearby Pincyn Llys to commemorate the planting of vast areas of woodland by the second Lord Bagot. (See Map)
Elizabeth Bagot was born on 3 March 1674. She was the daughter of Sir Walter Bagot, 3rd Bt. and Jane Salusbury. She was baptised on 17 March 1674 at Blithfield, Staffordshire, England. She married Henry Paget, 1st Earl of Uxbridge, son of William Paget, 6th Lord Paget (of Beaudesert) and Frances Pierrepont, on 7 June 1739. She died on 2 September 1749 at age 75, without issue. She was buried at Hillingdon, Middlesex, England. As a result of her marriage, Elizabeth Bagot was styled as Countess of Uxbridge on 7 June 1739. From 7 June 1739, her married name became Paget.
The Salusbury family was established at Bachymbyd, Denbighshire, by John Salusbry, the fourth son of Thomas Salusbury of Lleweni (d. 1471). The family acquired the Rug estate in Merioneth following the marriage of John's eldest son, Piers, with Margaret Wen, daughter and heir of Ieuan ap Howel ap Rhys, lord of Corwen. Rug rather than Bachymbyd became the most important family seat, though most of the estate comprised the Bachymbyd portion around Ruthin in Denbighshire.
The estate expanded further when Sir John Salusbry (d. 1580) acquired the lordship of Glyndyfrdwy. The entire estate was divided into two by William Salesbury following a bitter quarrel between him and his eldest son Owen over the latter's marriage to Mary, daughter of Gabriel Goodman of Abenbury, Flintshire. William split the estate between Owen, who received the Rug and Merioneth portion of the estate, and his second son, Charles, who received the Bachymbyd and Denbighshire portion.
Charles Salusbury died without heirs and the Bachymbyd estate was inherited by his daughter Jane, who married Sir Charles Bagot of Blithfield, Staffordshire, in 1670. Despite an attempt to reunite the two estates by Jane's nephew, William Salusbury, in the court of Chancery in the mid-1670s (which resulted in William's brother Gabriel fleeing to the continent for a while for procuring a forged deed) the estate remained in the hands of the Bagot family until most of it (17,500 acres) was sold in 1928.
Sometime prior to 1723 the Bagot family acquired Pool Park, some three miles away from Bachymbyd, which eventually became the Bagot family's chief seat in Wales. For a century at least, the estate was administered in two units: Bachymbyd and Pool Park and, certainly by the time the estate was sold in 1928, the estate was known as Pool Park rather than Bachymbyd.
