8/147 and 9/147 The Old Vicarage


House. C14/C15, altered in C17 and C19. Timber framed, plastered, roofed with
handmade red clay tiles. 3 bays aligned NE-SW, facing NE, with C19 central
stack. Single-storey extension to left, c.1974. 2 storeys. NE elevation, one
C20 casement on each floor, and in attic gable an original 2-light window with
wooden tracery, each light cinquefoiled with 2 trefoils above, originally
unglazed, now glazed on the outside. Jetty with exposed joists of horizontal
section, 2 plain brackets, and a mortice for a third. C20 door in left
extension. The rear bay of the roof has a hipped gablet. The interior is
mainly plastered, but all the visible posts are deeply chamfered. In the SE
side is a roll-moulded arch, only partly visible, apparently of an original
window. Immediately to rear of it there are indications of a former
cross-entry. The C19 inserted stack has C20 grates at front and back. On the
upper floor chamfered arched braces rise to the front internal tiebeam. A
re-located bracket supports an early C17 framed ceiling, with plain joists of
horizontal section. The roof is of crownpost construction, almost complete.
The front crownpost is of cross-quadrate section with wide 4-way arched braces
of which one has been severed for the inserted stack. The rear crownpost is
plain with wide axial arched braces, and down-braces to the tiebeam, trenched
into the studs of an original partition. Original hip. The front crown stud
forms the central mullion of the gable window, rebated with step stops, and the
wooden tracery is nailed to it. This is a small house of high quality,
possibly for a priest. Tenements 'in which the parish clerk now lives', rent
4s. p.a., and 'in which John Brian the chaplain now lives', rent 6s 8d. p.a.,
are mentioned in a rental of 1475 (Essex Record Office, D/M, M.169). RCHM 14.
