Re: An Englishman's (a man's) home is his castle

Posted by Geoffrey Shindler on June 14, 2004

I was most interested to read in this item the fact that Sir Edward Coke lived between 1552 and 1634 and he is quoted as saying "For a man's house is his castle..." in the year 1644, ten years after he died. Something has gone wrong somewhere. Your comments please.
