Quoin Green House was occupied by Thomas and Elizabeth Calton
before 1613 and for a century afterwards. The interior timbering
of the ground floor may represent the extensive remodelling of
a high status house, or the incorporation into a remodelled
structure of elements of a demolished building. Such deeply
undercut timberinq is not typical of North Derbyshire houses of
the C17.
