HISTORY: King Cnut gave lands in Thanet to St Augustine's Abbey, which owned Ozengell Grange together with perhaps five other barns in the Ramsgate area. Ozengell Grange was part of the mediety of tithes of grain and was appropriated to the sacristy of the monastery for the service and repair of the abbey. In 1464 there are records of Ozengell being paid five pounds, three shillings and a halfpence for repairs which may include the iron repairs to the beam in the north west bay. In July 1539 Ozengell Grange was surrendered to Henry VIII by the Abbot of St Augustine's and it was given to the Dean and Chapter of Canterbury Cathedral. They leased it to a Robert Maxted whose family held the parsonage of Ozengell Grange from 1565 until 1765.
