Guildford appears in Domesday Book of 1086 as Geldeford and Gildeford, a holding of William the Conqueror.The King officially held the 75 hagae (houses enclosed in fences or closes) in which lived 175 homagers (heads of household) and the town rendered £32.On each corner of the tower there is an octagonal turret rising an extra floor, with lead ogee domes.One of the greatest boosts to Guildford's prosperity came in 1653 with the completion, after many wrangles, of the Wey Navigation.As the threat of invasion and insurrection declined, the castle's status was demoted to that of a royal hunting lodge: Guildford was, at that time, at the edge of Windsor Great Park.
The brick-built, three-storey entrance tower faces the church; a grand stone archway leads into the courtyard.

In the years around 1550, a pupil at the school was John Derrick who in later life became a Queen's Coroner for the county of Surrey.
In 1597, Derrick made a legal deposition that contains the earliest definite reference to cricket being played anywhere in the world.
