8/104 Ewelme Manor
Part of Ewelme Palace, now house. c.1450 with late C18 fenestration and wing to
rear left. Red brick; old plain-tile roof; brick lateral stacks to rear. 2
storeys, 3-window range. 6-panel door with fan-light to C19 red brick porch to
centre. 16-pane sashes to all openings. Right return: 2 storeys and attic,
angled buttresses to corners. 20-pane sashes to ground and first floor, 4-pane
sash to attic gable. Interior: Arch-braced collar-truss roof with sharply curved
wind-braces. Last surviving fragment of Chaucer's ancestral home. Enlarged after
the marriage of Alice Chaucer to William de la Pole (Earl of Suffolk) in 1430.
Described by Leland in 1542, "The base court of it is fair and is builded with
brick and timber. The inner part of the house is set within a fair moat and is
builded richly of brick and stone. The hall of it is fair and hath great bars of
iron over thwart it instead of gross-beads." What is now the Manor was part of a
self-contained range for the accommodation of guests or retainers. Shown in an
engraving by Samuel and Nathaniel Buck of 1729. Truncated and remodelled in
(Malcolm Airs "Ewelme" Archaelogical Journal, Vol.135, 1975, pp.275-280;
Buildings of England: Oxfordshire, p.600).
