Twinstead, Braintree, Essex, England


Notes: From White's Directory of Essex 1848
TWINSTEAD, a small village and parish, 4½ miles North East by North of Halstead, has only 196 souls and 977 acres of land, including 104A. of wood­land. The Hon. Thomas H. G. Fermor, brother to the Earl of Pomfret is lord of the manor and owner of Twinstead Hall, which was the seat of the late Sir George William Denys, Bart., and was much improved by tbe learned Sir James Marriott, LL.D. It was built in the reign of Elizabeth, by Isaac Wincoll, Esq., and was formerly surrounded by a deep moat. It stands on a commanding eminence and the north front retains its original character, having bay windows and other peculiarities of the Elizabethan style. It is now unoccupied. Messrs. Isaac Firmin, Joseph Thompson, and Jacob Manning are landowners here. Pelhams, a large ancient mansion, formerly belonged to the Pelham, Shaen, and other families. An antique house, called Sparrow Hall, was the seat of the Sparrow family, in the reign of Edward I.

The Church was rebuilt about 20 years ago. but some remains of the old walls are yet to be seen attached to the vault belonging to the lords of the manor. It is a small fabric, with a tower and one bell, and contains some memorials of the families formerly seated at the hall. The rectory. valued in K.B. at £6, and in 1831 at £255, is in the patronage of the Lord Chancellor, and incumbency of the Rev. H.V. 5hortland, M.A , who has 14A. of glebe, and a good residence, built about 60 years ago. The tithes were commuted in 1830 for £300 per ann. The poor parishioners have 20s. a year from Wincoll's Charity.
