Described in 1796 .....
`With a convenient yard, stable and outhouse; Also a small garden and a small pightle of land, containing by estimation about 1 acre. Copyhold to the Manor of Felmingham Hall. Fine certain 7s 6d. Quit Rent 3s 5d.'

It was reported September 1865 that the 1 cwt hearthstone had been noticed to be rising above the floorboards. Getting a bricklayer to lift the stone and investigate, a half bushel of new potatoes, all about the size of hens eggs, were found growing there. Those growing against the brickwork and the hearthstone were flattened to about three inches wide and half an inch thick. It is thought that old potatoes had been deposited there by rats.

38 barrels of beer
