A documentary reference noted in (S1) states that the rectory was built in 1637 by the rector Thomas Carver. The house has a crown post roof, with an off-centre crown post that is characteristic of Wealden houses. The quality of the roof suggests that this was a prestigious medieval house. The medieval house was extended to the east by Thomas Carver in the 17th century. This extension joined the previously detached kitchen to the main house, and the dairy range is also probably of this date.
