INGATESTONE AND FRYERNING TL6OSW MILL GREEN ROAD 723-1/2/549 (South West side) 07 /12/92 Maygotts

GV II House. Early C15, extended in C20. Timber-framed, plastered, roofed with handmade red clay tiles. 2-bay cross-wing facing NE, of hall house formerly extending to NW C20 extension to rear, single-storey lean-to to left, and series of C20 extensions to right bringing the whole to an irregular half-H plan. 2 storeys. All windows are C20 casements. C20 door at front of gabled porch. The roof has a gablet hip to the rear, enclosed by the C20 extension. INTERIOR: jowled posts, heavy studding with curved braces trenched to the outside. To rear of the middle left post, on the lower storey, 2 studs have been removed to make a doorway, and one stud and 2 grown knees have been introduced. Grooves for sliding shutters in the soffits of the bressumer and front tie-beam, blocked with plaster. In the right wall, on the lower storey, original doorway immediately behind front corner post, with chamfered 3-centered arched head, and mortice and former draught screen in rear doorpost. 2 studs removed to make a later doorway. Carpenters' assembly marks number this series from I to X, front to back, including the middle post as V, with a gap for a blocked original doorway at the far end. Heavy joists of horizontal section jointed to the binding beam with unrefined central tenons, complete except for one replaced joist at rear left; blocked original stair strap against right wall immediately to rear of binding beam, which has mortices and a wattle groove for a former partition between the bays. Cambered tie-beam, arched braces to it missing. Crownpost roof complete. Plain square crownpost with 2 arched axial braces to collar-purlin in front bay, tenoned to hip rafter at rear. The form of this cross-wing is unusual, in that the evidence of a former partition between the bays on the ground floor may suggest that it was a service wing, but the positions of the 2 doorways and draught screen indicate that it must have been the parlour/solar wing, divided for a reason unknown, perhaps because the missing service end was used for a shop or trading purpose. HISTORICAL NOTE: this house is recorded in the Petre archives as Maggots. A survey of 1556 gives the length as 40 feet (5 feet longer than the present house), 18 feet wide (the cross-wing is 18 feet 6 inches long internally, measured on the ground floor), and 9 feet high to the eaves (which must be of the former hall range), with a partly tiled roof. It had a detached kitchen with a tiled roof, 20 x 13 x 7 feet high to the eaves, a thatched barn 33 x 13 x 7 feet high to the eaves, a thatched barn 33 x 13 x 8 feet to the eaves, and a holding of 16 acres. It is mentioned in court rolls in 1570,1578,1579 and 1601. It is illustrated in the Walker map of 1601 as a low hall range with central door and brick chimney, one window to each side, and a 2-storey cross-wing to left, the roofs tiled, then with a holding of 19 acres. (Essex Record Office: D/DP M.170, M.96-101).
