History

Detailed History

The Medley family inherited Coneyborough by marriage in 1713. After being inhabited by two generations of the Medley family, the house was let (the Medley family also owned Buxted Place). Use of Coneyborough was then limited. A drawing of the house in 1790 shows a Palladian style of facade with wings. The house was demolished in 1816, and a new building was built in the Grecian style.
