Abstract

A ground-floor fireplace lintel from a tree felled in the period AD 1574–9 may give an indication of the time when a house was originally constructed on this plot. The felling date of winter AD 1689/90 for timber in the roof fits well with the known history of the vicarage, which is thought to have been built by the vicar, Charles Palmer, who took up his position in AD 1688. A single rafter was found to be from a tree felled in winter AD 1824/5, giving a date for a previously unrecognised renovation or repair at the property.
