Hameline seems to have spent more time at his Yorkshire castle than any o f the previous earls; he held the earldom for close on 40 years, from 1 163-1202, a time during which the development of military architecture i n Britain was progressing by great strides under the encouragement of h is brother the king. It was this perios which saw the construction of t he stone keep of Conisbrough Castle and its development as a place suit able for royalty -- King John, nephew of Hamelin, did actually stay her e in 1201. Probably abt 1180, to judge from
the decoration in the keep chapel, Hamelin seems to have ordered the co nstruction of the keep to his own design. The closest parallel to the C onsibrough keep is found at Mortemer, near Dieppe in France, a castle a lso held by the Warren family. The keep at Mortemer musst have been bui lt before 1201 when it was captured by Philip Augustus in his campaign t o rid Normandy of the English. Thus both these keeps were probably buil t by Hamelin and originally would have been complemented by an inner wa rd contained by earthwork defences only.
One of the few surviving documents of Conisbrough Castle's early his tory records that by 1189 Hamelin and Isabel had jointly founded an end owment for a priest within the castle. [Conisbrough Castle, pp. 20-22]
