Detailed History

The estate belonged to the Maryon-Wilson family and the house was probably built between 1835 and 1840. Pike (1910) has a photograph of the house. In 1936 part of the estate was sold and was finally broken up in 1952. The house was pulled down in 1950 (1973. Fletching: the parish and the church. 3rd edition). The Ordnance Survey map of 1987 appears to show several houses on the old site of the house but the gardens remain. The estate is still shown on the Ordnance Survey Explorer map 135 (1996).
