TL 7454 27/522


The manor of Gaynes Attilton, one of the 3 manor halls of Wickhambrook. The
lands were held by the De Bures family from the time of Edward I. Robert de
Bures had the lordship and obtained a grant of free warren in 1314 and the manor
remained in the De Bures family until 1361 when it came into the ownership of
Sir Richard de Weldegrave. It remained in this family until 1554 when it was
sold to Humphrey Mosley. A fire affected the sale at this time and the present
house was probably built after this date. A C16 timber-framed and plastered
house. 1 storey and attics. The windows are partly double-hung sashes with
glazing bars and partly casements. Roof thatched, with 2 gabled dormers.
