dow with ogee-section hood mould and shaped kneelers to gable; 3rd and 4th bays

York (1645-1709), it is an early work by Gyles, and has the arms of the Bellasis
family (of Newburgh Priory) above those of Paulet in an architectural canopy
(Brighton, p.47); two first-floor timber-framed partitions with moulded vertical
studs, segmental-arched doorway and an upright post, jowelled at the top, which
continues up from the ground-floor hall. The name of the building comes from
the Colville family who were given the manor of Coxwold after the Norman
Conquest; and retained it until the mid C15. About 1608, the manor house was
bought by Sir Henry Bellasis of Newburgh Priory (qv) who probably built the
present house (VCH ii, p.9). Photos in XNMR.
