We don't do e-mail responses. If you read some of the old mails or possibly even do some other research you'll find that castles come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and that your question is unanswerable.

It was rarely a case of determining how much land was needed to put up a castle - more often, it was more a case of how much land you had before you could afford to build a castle. Amount of land owned was very closely linked to determining one's wealth.
