Listing Text

Manor House Buildings,
TO 11 NW 7/411


Immediately to the east of these farm buildings was a house occupied by William
Penn. It was part of the inheritance of his wife Gulielma Springett who lived
there from 1676 till her death in 1693. William Penn also occupied the house
during that period when not in America. He sold it in 1702 to James Butler
who demolished it and erected another on the site, which was in its turn demolished
by the Duke of Norfolk in 1806. The large barn and farm buildings which survive
probably do not date from Penn's house but from the early C18 mansion of James
Butler. Red brick. Tiled roof. Stringcourse. Eaves cornice.
