Details

STAINFORTH RAMSKIN LANE SE 61 SW (north side) 6/80 Town End Farmhouse II Farmhouse. c1700, altered. Red brick, in Flemish bond on front wall, random bond elsewhere; pantile roof. 2 storeys and attics, 3-bay gabled front masking twin roof. Window in position of central doorway beneath rubbed-brick flat arch; chamfered ashlar datestone over door has only its upper initial 'S' now legible. Outer windows and those to lst floor have C20 casements with glazing bars beneath rubbed-brick segmental arches. Blind attic window to centre of large flat-topped gable with shaped kneelers and ashlar gable copings. Brick attic window to centre of large flat-topped gable with shaped kneelers and ashlar gable copings. Brick stacks to inside of each ridge. Right return: C20 door to right of centre beneath flat-topped segmental arch of rougher brickwork; C20 casements to each side have similar arches; large C20 casement above on right; tabled and dentilled eaves courses. Interior: altered. Rev. de la Pryme, writing in his diary of 1698 (cited in Tomlinson, p220), says of Stainfarth '... town is nothing like what it was; there is now neither Market nor Fair, nor not a good house therein but one, which is lately built...". Tomlinson records that the house mentioned belonged to Francis Elwick and cost £1,300 to build; in the C18 it passed by marriage to the Simpson family. On the evidence it is reasonable to assume that Town End Farmhouse is the house meant by de la Pryme. John Tomlinson, The Level of Hatfield Chase and Parts Adjacent, 1882.
