Castle Bear House in 1795 which was subsequently owned by Lt. General Frederick Wetherall. His friend, Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, owned Castle Hill Lodge nearby. Ealing Abbey now stands upon this site.[1]

Castlebar Hill is a hill in Ealing which is 167 feet (51 m) high.[2] In the 18th century, it was the location of Castle Beare, a grand mansion or country seat, for the area at this time was but a hamlet, not yet having been built up as part of the London conurbation.[3]
