10/4 The Manor House
27th May 1953
- II
House of 2 builds. Late C16 and early C17; altered C19. Timber-framed with
later brick infill; pantile roof. L-shaped plan with 2-bay lobby-entry hall-
block added to 2-bay crosswing. 2 storeys, 2:1 windows to 1st floor.
Entrance front: hall block, on left, has added porch flanked by 3-light
casement windows on each floor. Cross-wing projecting on right has exposed
corner posts and similar casements. Brick ridge stack above porch; cross-
wing has hipped roof with brick ridge stack. Rear: hall block has 3 exposed
wall posts, those on left with exposed braces to the wallplate.
Interior: not inspected.
A detailed survey (S. R. Jones) records that the cross-wing is of better
quality timberwork and has transverse ceiling joists in the front ground-
floor room pegged to a spine bean which also has mortices for a partition
wall. The central post of the wing, at junction with the hall-block, has
been removed but the weathered wall-plate survives with mortices for light
studding thus indicating the separate dates of the 2 structures possibly
occupied by separate households of the sane family. Once home of William
Bradford who sailed on the Mayflower in 1620; he was made Governor of
Plymouth Colony in April 1621, a post which he held (apart from 5 years)
until his death in 1657. He wrote the "History of Plymouth Colony" a
manuscript found in Fulham Palace Library in 1855 and given to the United
States.
