The rest of the house was not accessible; some rooms are said to retain chimneypieces, but the house appears to have been much remodelled when divided. The manor came into the possession of the Tremayne family in 1513 and remained in the family until C20. The Reverend H.H. Tremayne extended the house in the early C19.
