HISTORICAL NOTE

The Manor is listed Grade II being a fine example of the William & Mary Revival period having been re-modelled in the late 19th Century, since which time there have been further alterations which remains in keeping with the properties original features and character. It is believed that there has been a property on the site since the late 18th Century having previously formed part of the Puleston Estate. The Puleston Family’s principal residence was at Emral Hall, Hollybush and the nephew of the Puleston’s, namely a Crawshay Wellington Bailey, acquired The Manor in the 1890’s before inheriting the entire estate shortly thereafter. At the time of inheriting the Puleston Estate, it was a condition Bailey changed his name to Bailey Puleston which he duly did, and at the same time altered the name of the house from The Cottage to The Manor, to fit his new title. The family residence Emral Hall was demolished in 1936 after which time part of the hall was reconstructed in Portmerion, Gwynedd and other features were moved to The Manor once the final, true, Puleston passed away.

In more recent years, The Manor was owned by war veteran Captain Rayner between 1910-27, then East India Company Director, Geoffrey Stevenson until his death in 1951; At which time it was acquired by Lord Kenyon, Baron of Gredington, who after a short time set about dividing ‘Worthenbury Manor’ into 2 wings, namely Quinton and The Manor. In 1956, Mr & Mrs George Manning acquired The Manor along with the adjoining fields and the property was used as a mixed farm until 1964 and exchanged hands again and was further divided before the current owners took occupation in 1981.

DESCRIPTION

The Manor is an attractive period property believed to date from the 19th Century with a number of tasteful alterations over the decades with particular emphasis on the William & Mary Revival. The property is constructed of red brick with symmetrical Dutch style parapet gables with Ruabon brick edging and single ball finial, with diagonal chimney stacks and all under a slate roof. The design is reminiscent of the works of the architect T M Lockwood whom on behalf of the Duke of Westminster designed 4 almost identical children’s nurseries on the edges of Chester. Internally, The Manor has many period features with parquet flooring, panelled walls, panelled doors with deep architraves, leaded windows and original fireplaces. In addition to the panelling in the dining room, the Inglenook style fireplace in the sitting room is equally as impressive which includes the inscription ‘Welcome ever smiles but farewell goes out sighing’. During the owner’s tenure, the property has been well maintained and the design/style of the decoration is in keeping with the property’s original era.
