Abstract:
Dendrochronological analysis undertaken at this building on timbers of the main roof, the roof of the stair turret, and several timbers from the ground and first-floor, resulted in the dating of 17 of them. The earliest date gained was for a beam in the upstairs hall which was felled some time within the range AD 1301-21. Three roof timbers in the main roof, including one from the remains of the smoke hood, were dated to AD 1587, with many of the other roof timbers also thought to be this date. The stair turret roof is now known to contain one timber felled within the range AD 1519-39, a second timber was felled in AD 1570, and a third has a felling date range consistent with it having been felled in AD 1587. Two wall posts, one from within the main range and one in the stair turret are also thought to have been felled in AD 1587. Several components of wall framing have also been dated to terminus post quems (date after which) of AD 1537 (one sample) and AD 1553 (three samples). A ground-floor ceiling beam has a terminus post quem felling of AD 1555. Prior to tree-ring analysis being undertaken at this building it was believed to date to the seventeenth century. It is now thought likely that the structure and roof of both the main range and the stair turret are constructed from timbers felled in the late-sixteenth century. It has also been shown to contain a fourteenth-century timber which is thought most likely to represent a reused timber. There is also evidence for reused and/or stockpiled timber in the stair turret roof.
