GUEST,Ebor Fiddler Lyr Req: 'Bumper' definition needed (18) RE: Lyr Req: 'Bumper' definition needed 22 Oct 15

The term "Bumper" as I understand it comes from drinking healths and bumping the flagons, glasses etc in a party situation. The glasses always started off very full. Later it became a verb, "drinking Bumpers". "Bumper full" of course was to be as full as possible, like the party glasses.
But where did the name "Bumper Castle" come from? I can understand it as a pub name, but I know at least one farm with that name.
