This small farmhouse lay at the edge of the common but within the town field called Bishop's Haugh Field. The field originated as an outlier of the Bishop's estate at Eccles and it remained part of Eccles parish. The house site described as a 'piece of land measuring 57 by 20 feet in the parish of Eccles in a field near New Buckenham' was acknowledged by John Feeke in 1603 as having been purchased from Thomas Neve in 1601. The farm later passed to the Hewet family.
