Abstract:
Tree-ring analysis of a 22 samples from the roof and first-floor partition walls of Sharpcliffe Hall has produced two separate site chronologies. The first site chronology, SPCASQ01, comprises 10 samples, all from what are believed to be primary or phase 1 timbers, and has an overall length of 182 rings. These rings can be dated as spanning the years 1466 to 1647. Interpretation of the sapwood on these dated samples would indicate that the timbers they represent were all felled between 1650 - 52. The second site chronology, SPCASQ02, comprises six samples, all from what are considered to be inserted, secondary, or phase 2, timbers. This second site chronology has an overall length of 120 rings which can be dated as spanning the years 1512 to 1631. Interpretation of the sapwood on the six dated samples of this second site chronology would indicate that at least one timber was certainly felled in 1627, and another was certainly felled in 1631. It is likely that the other four dated timbers were felled at about his time too. It would thus appear that the primary phase timbers of Sharpcliffe Hall date to 1650 - 55. The alterations, which must have been undertaken some time after this date, use timber felled ca 1627 - 31, which must, presumably, have been salvaged from somewhere else and reused here.
