Notes NOTES: Prior to the early 20th century the house was known as Wolterton Manor. It was built in the 1520s by Sir Henry Fermor whose coat of arms are on the gatehouse. The house fell into ruin in the 18th century and remained so until the first restoration in 1922. This was done by the architect John Page of Holtom & Page, who then went on to substantially reconstruct the Manor in 1936-1938. The image seen here by John Repton shows the house in its ruinous state without its roof. SOURCE: Vetusta monumenta, vol. 4 (London, 1815), plate 25
