and in Chapman and Andre's map of 1777 it is shown as Marshes.
It was enlarged by Richard Woods, surveyor, shortly before

called Maxes. In a sale catalogue of 1901 it was described as
Park House, then with 5 acres of garden, and c1970 reverted to
the name Maxes. At that time a large extension to the left,
including a belvedere, was demolished (shown in a photograph
in the owner's possession).
